Summer bass commonly retreat to depths of 15 feet or more. When they do, big-billed crankbaits get down to them and spark reflex strikes. But these lures can require too much work. Virginian Woo Daves, the 2000 BASS Masters Classic champion, dredges up bass with a lot less effort. He switches to heavy spinnerbaits weighing as much as 21/2 ounces, which cast far, run deep, retrieve easily, and catch the same bass that respond to crankbaits.
