Once you’re in a good position, there a few ways to get a bass to bite using “the pop.” My favorite, however, is letting the bait sit on the sweet spot of the bed until the bass settles down close by, and is comfortable with the overall situation. Right about the time the bass thinks all the commotion is over, pop the bait high and fast on the bed in one aggressive, quick motion. It’s an all-in type tactic that requires patience, but it works by using the element of surprise. Many times, the bass will rush the bait and immediately eat it out of pure instinct. Conventional bed fishing tactics usually have the angler letting the lure sit on the bed while subtly shaking the bait. That works at times, but I don’t feel it triggers a fish’s aggression the same as rapid, severe movement.
