We found a huge school of largemouth pushing Threadfin Shad up on a point. Once the feeding frenzy began it was clock work. Cast after cast produced fish after fish as fast as we could reel them in! We caught most of the fish on a squarebill crankbait and a swimbait on an underspin. We’ve said before that causing a “reaction” is key when bass are targeting baitfish and these two baits did an excellent job of creating a trigger.

We were fishing in Mexico when this all took place but even the locals were shocked by how aggressive these bass were. It just goes to show how incredible Summer bass fishing can be when anglers are prepared to work as a team to keep a school of aggressive bass fired up.
