...... early morning or towards evening , on reservoirs and lakes with decent depth around wood along the shoreline , make sure you toss that 7" plastic worm into/around the thickest cover you can find , let it sink to the bottom ... and slowly , ever so slowly pull and drag it along the bottom , up and over submergeed wood , let it drop in again ... keep slowly dragging always trying to feel the bottom on the other end . Stop and start again after each thing you encounter under water .

If your worm goes near where a large Bass is lying , he may come out and suck it up . It's always been 2 (two) light taps for me with large Bass . Drop the rod tip to slack as soon as you feel those two taps , open the bail and watch for the line to start running off ... give him a little bit and click . When he reaches the end of his rope , set the hook . I describe the sizable Largemouth Bass strike on a plastic worm like someone at the door ... knock - knock .

It is my belief and that of others who are pros , that a big ol bucketmouth Bass will not expend a great deal of energy chasing down a bait ... instead he lyes in wait for the opportune time to attack something very near his hideout , he can be very quick on his attack within 3'-4' but won't go much farther , he is selective , likes big meals that are easy to catch .
