must be able to navigate around a lake successfully in order to locate
fish. A fundamental understanding of a lakes geographic layout can be
valuable knowlege. I use topgraphical maps for most dams I fish and
it is a combination of these and my catch card system that allows me
to keep records of envirnmental conditions (weather and water levels)
and catch results.
Generally bass cab be found throughout a lake, but under certain conditions,
bass concentrate in areas where optimal water conditions prevail and
where combinations of structure, cover and forage are found in one area.
