Its  summertime and the bass are biting. Big fish like big baits.

One of the best ways to catch the bigguns fishing technique is simply looking for the hard-to-reach spots. Duck under trees, go through bushes, and anything else in the way, whether on land or a boat, to reach spots likely holding a colossal bass. Big largmouth bass sometimes lurk in the dirtiest-looking water sections rather than the clear open water.

Best lures to use to catch big bass: Topwater frogs, plastic worms, crankbaits, and chatter baits.

The same techniques apply to giant bass as they do to smaller fish; the only difference is a larger lure. Using a larger lures means you will probably scare away the smaller fish. The little bass will leave the big bait alone because they know they can’t match up with it.
