As you search for bass in weeds, look to see whether there is a distinct outside weed edge. In many waters, weeds stop growing at a consistent depth, creating an edge bass relate to. Next, see if there is an inside edge (a depth at which weeds stop growing as it gets shallower). Then, go after the bass! Fish quickly along the outside edge, using crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and other offerings. You're looking for ready biters that might give away a school. Next, fish 'over the top' by working lures that tick the weed tops in patches of thick growth. Spinnerbaits and buzzbaits often work well, as do weedless frogs like the IOBee from Jackall. Next, work the inside edge, if it exists, fishing quickly. The Jockie Topwater Minnow calls fish out to hit it, and spinnerbaits are also good. Go back and fish 'low and slow' in areas where you caught fish during the search process. A Spade Jig is perfect for this job.
