Bass Fishing Ponds

 

 

Wired2Fish editor Walker Smith straps up his boots for a day of bank fishing with good buddy Trae Renfroe. Simplicity is key when on foot. Many times you’re bushwhacking to get to a good place to cast or while going from spot to spot. That’s why it’s a good idea to travel with a few rigs that you can keep in your back pocket. Walker has three go-to plastics he carries that allow him to fish at all levels of the water column but the most crucial is a good old Texas rigged worm. Any bait you can fish while feeling along on the bottom will give you a good idea of what the depth and bottom content are like without the use of electronics. Paying attention to details on shore can also lend a hand in determining where a depth change is or where structure may be present underwater.
