#16 – Fishing Shoreline Cover
By Tyler Morgan – young tournament bass angler from Pennsylvania
When fishing shoreline cover some gear that you need is a long and heavy rod. The rod I use is a Big Bear fishing rod 7ft 9in heavy fast action rod. For a fishing reel, I use a Shimano Chronarch c14 with 65lb Power Pro Braided line. Good weather conditions to look for when you plan on fishing shoreline cover are clear skies, sunny, and no wind. When you have these conditions the fish like to look for shade. And the docks, wood, lily pads, and overhanging trees supply shade for the fish. Some of the baits that I will choose depend on the type of food the fish have in that lake. Some favorite lures I will throw are Snack Daddy Lures Craw Daddy and a Locket Lures Outlet Fattie. As a weight for my bait, I usually use a ¼ to a 1oz Rockybrook Sinkers tungsten weight. These are the basics of shoreline fishing.
