THE bass are going berserk as we head out of the spawning season, and an angler could throw just about any lure and be guaranteed of limiting. So pull that old rod out of the garage and get your feet wet, because now is the time of year to walk the banks. Bass are using structure and hanging close to drop-offs in search of cover. They are moving in and out of the shallower waters, striking at the bait fish that are slowly starting to move closer to the surface. There is lots of movement along the banks, with carp, barbel, bass and tilapia all splashing around as they strive to fill their bellies. Keep your eyes open and learn to recognise the fish that you are targeting. There is nothing quite as sweet as spotting a fish feeding and then successfully luring it onto the end of your line.
