Billy Cole eased up to the old submerged lake dam and cast a watermelon seed Zoom lizard over it into the deep water. As Cole slowly moved and twitched the Carolina-rigged lizard over the dam, he felt the tap of a bass sucking it in. […]
Calling Panther is the lake, and March is the month to catch a bass of a lifetime. But to get that monster bass, you’ll have to fight for it. You’ll have to go where no one else goes and fish like most anglers don’t like to fish. […]
Working across the shallow flats in search of hungry bass, my partner for the day instructed me to fish the shallow flat right off the bank to my right.

The bass generally prefer to hold in the brush, especially in the winter months. When the water starts to get cold, the bass will begin grouping into bigger schools, as they move out to their winter habitat. […]
