Smaller bass will chase the school around, but big bass often pick an ambush point and wait for the buffet to come to them. Once you’ve figured out where the bulk of the shad are hanging, and how they’re moving, look for places likely to hold a big bass. This can be anything from a laydown tree, to a boulder, to a dock. Pay attention to what happens when the shad pass one of these ambush points. If they get smashed, fish the attack spot first. White spinnerbaits, silver crankbaits, and natural-colored jerkbaits are all great lure choices.
