Glenn: Hey folks, Glenn May here with BassResource. com,and welcome to another edition of Hank Parker’sFishing Tips, sitting here in Hank’s boat,sitting here hanging out, answering your questions. Hank, this week’s question, it comes fromPort Sanders in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Portia Sanders, sorry about that, Portia Sandersin Green Bay, Wisconsin. “What’s the best strategy for finding groupsof pelagic smallmouth in mid-to-late summer?”Hank: Pelagic?Help me out here. Glenn: That’s like roaming schools of bass. Hank: Oh, you’re way above my. . . pelagic schoolsof bass. I tell you, those wolf pack schools of smallmouthand largemouth can be caught. Topwater bait’s probably the most effectivemethod for catching when they’re roaming,and it is a method that it seems like everyyear plays a huge factor in the Forrest WoodCup. The Forrest Wood Cup, FLW Tournaments, areheld usually late summer: late July, mid August,somewhere in that range, even late August. And those wolf packs are a big factor everyyear on who wins the Forrest Wood Cup, whetherit’s largemouth or smallmouth. So when you see those big schools of bassthat are roaming around just at random, notholding on that structure, back off, comeback to the area, give ’em a little bit ofroom. Usually you’ll spook them when you first pullup on ’em unless you’re very fortunate tosee them at long distance, but there’s nobetter way, in my opinion, catching thosefish than a topwater.
