The key to knowing how to position a bass boat to catch more bass is to know the bass’ main forage. If bass eat crawdads, bluegill, or other panfish then you typically position the boat out deep, cast shallow, and work your bait downhill.
If bass are eating trout, kokanee, gizzard shad, etc… you typically position the boat shallow, cast deep, and work the bait uphill.
