Tip One Fish are actually more visible than you realise and often show themselves more than you might ever think. Tip Two Don’t wade into the nearest location that you see and begin to fish immediately. Stop and watch the influences. Which way is the tide flowing? Is there much current? Can I fish here successfully without being in any danger? Can I present to those rocks with this wind? How and where do I fish without scaring

I
’ve come to the last of this y shing for  bass series I’m afraid. We’ve discussedmany things: casting, water clarity,ies, presentations and tactics. I probablycould go on with the series of articles butat the risk of becoming excessively detailedI’d rather nish it with a summary of someof the things that you can tag onto the previous ve articles. I do hope you haveenjoyed the articles and that they have beenof some benet to your shing – here area few more little details that I hope mighthelp you catch the bass of a lifetime.
Tip OneFish are actually more visible than yourealise and often show themselvesmore than you might ever think.
Don’t automatically think that you needto tune into a classic ‘jumping’ type of sh, but be aware of small whirls in a rifedsurface, a sudden scattering of baitshor moving shadows that creep over the bottom on a sunny day. Always use your eyes and be on the lookout for any erraticmovements in the water, especially withinyour peripheral vision. Even in rough water,sh indicators can be visible. If you are notwitnessing activity visually be preparedto listen for changes in regular patternsof sound. Yes, you can hear the waves breaking on the shore in a regular way, butwhat was that sudden surge to your left. If you hear something out of the ordinary it’smore than likely to be hunting sh. Are your hands getting cold with that change of winddirection? Are your legs feeling the slightdrop in temperature as the clear water runsup the estuary? Obvious and big indicationsare not the only signs of sh. Look for andfeel the subtle messages too.
Tip TwoDon’t wade into the nearest location
that you see and begin to sh
immediately.
Stop and watch the inuences. Whichway is the tide owing? Is there muchcurrent? Can I sh here successfullywithout being in any danger? Can I presentto those rocks with this wind? How andwhere do I sh without scaring the shoff? How can I land and return a sh here.Fishing before you wade is often critical incatching a bigger bass on the y. Askingand determining these factors is one thing,it is also necessary to ‘sync’ them into your knowledge of other variables. The actualityof the situation is related to knowing thedirection of the wind, the state of the tideand not just falling or rising but spring or neap, the direction of the sun. Add them alltogether.
We come to the last in thisseries on catching bigger
bass on the y with a round-up of
Jim Hendrick’s
toptips for success.
