For me the deal about grass the reason I likeit so well is because I know what kind offish live in it. You know what I’m saying?There’s a tendency that the biggest fish in the lake live in the grass,the biggest number of fish, and it also supportsthe most bait. Everything about it is positivewhen it relates to bass fishing. Normally thesituation is when you have a lake with a lotof grass, the structure within the grass becomesthe sweet spot. When you take a place thatdoesn’t have much grass it doesn’t reallymatter where it is. It’s going to be goodregardless. But when you have lots of grassthen it becomes what’s on the bottom not somuch what you see. The grass is a year roundfish factory. They spawn in it in the spring,they summer in it under the mats, they chaseshad as the grass starts to die because shadhave the tendency to really migrate to itand feed on it in the fall, and then the fishfollow in right with it. it’s just a yearround place to fish, and more times than notwhen you figure out a grass deal you can winthe tournament. I’ve never been on a grasslake where the grass is not a factor. NEVER. If it’s got grass, I guarantee it’s goingto be part of the deal. Someone might windoing something totally different, but therewill be 8 out of the 10 fishing grass on agrass lake. Sometimes like on a lake likethis one it can be where two grasses mix. In this particular grass bed we went throughthere’s a little Spiny Naiad growing in theHydrilla. At other times I’ve been on lakesthat where you have a solid line of Hydrillaand isolated patches of Coontail growing outsideit and that will be the deal. Or it can alsobe a seam because Milfoil will have a tendencyto grow shallower. Up shallow you will havethe Milfoil and then there will be a seamwhere the two meet. The Hydrilla is thickand it meets the Milfoil and all the fishwill be down that line. So there are all kindsof little subtle things to look for in thegrass. But the number one without a doubtis the bottom contour. If you get a drain,a creek channel, or something that swingsin next to it, a long flat running out andbreaking, or a corner on a flat. Just somethingthat is a little different to kind of isolatethose fish.
