Sometimes bedding bass are so easy to catch they seem suicidal. In many instances, however, they won't let you get close enough to sight-cast to them. You glimpse a vanishing shadow when you approach a bed, and the fish refuses to return until you leave. These "ghost" bass can be caught, provided you back away where they are less likely to detect your presence. This strategy pays off big time for noted Kentucky bass pro Mark Menendez.
