How to Effectively Fish Current and Wind | Bass Fishing

Glenn: Hey folks, Glenn May here with BassResourcecom, and I'm here with Hank Parker with another edition of Hank Parker's Fishing Tips

Hank, this week's question comes from Angie Dover from Enumclaw, Washington And she says, "Why do you consider fishing objects into the current or wind so important?" Hank: Why do I consider fishing objects, casting into the wind or fishing withthrowing my bait against the current and bring it with the current? Because fish always face the current

If you're not in a river system or a lake that is generating electricity or letting water out at the dam, the wind will dictate the direction of the current When you're fishing, bank fishing small ponds and reservoirs, that current is completely dictated by the wind So it's a lot easier to cast with the wind as far as convenience and getting further cast distance But the fish unfortunately are facing that wind so you must cast into that wind if you wanna bring your lure in the direction that the fish are facing So always remember, fish always face current

It's the only way they have to stabilize themselves I don't say they never swim downstream, but when they stop, they point that nose upstream because that is the way their fins work in order for them to stabilize So they're alwayswhen they're in an ambush position, they're in a fixed position in a river or a lake, they're facing the current So that's why you bring your lure with the current, and that's why you cast into the wind Glenn: Great question, Angie Thanks so much for submitting it, and I hope it answers your question For more tips and tricks, head on over to hankparker
