How/Where To Fish: Flipping is a highly productive method for largemouths, especially early in the summer, as they bed in the vast pencil reed fields and around Champlain's many docks and marinas. However, during the filming of this episode (mid-June), bass pro Dave Wolak concentrated on the jig and jerkbait bite for smallmouths. These fish were stacked on rocky points that dropped off quickly, and mid-lake high points with predominantly rocky bottoms. But conditions on Champlain can change in a flash and push fish around. Prior to a visit, keep a close eye on wind and barometric pressure trends, as these factors weigh heavily on the patterns and location of the fish.
