Shallow Water Mapping has been the best way for me over the years to find the areas holding big Bass. It allows me to fish the 20 best spots. It takes that many to find the one best spots on a lake holding huge shallow water Bass; but it takes 3 of these best spots to put together the winning stringer. Pick just one lake until you have it mastered and commit to that lake, no where else. The bite I was always looking for was on my Custom Bait Package. It is not a must but it has worked for me.

Your fish is more apt to stay in an area that has thick cover for a longer period of time. I have found shallow water spots that I could count on if the water level was consistent year after year with heavy grass and hardwoods mixed.

MARKING THE HARD MAP OF YOUR LAKE:

-I spend 8 hours picking the best 20 spots for you to fish this time of year.
-They are all checked and cross checked with 3 different satellite views.
-It will take you one full week to cover all 20 spots.
-The spawn is a key time for you to find the best areas on your lake.
-You will gain knowledge form my Map Statistic Sheet of why these places are the best on the lake.
-You will carry this knowledge with you to other lakes you fish.
-You will learn how long to stay and when to go.
-You will learn all the features of a lake that makes certain spots the best.
-You will learn what to do when the water level in your lake changes.
-Out of these 20 spots expect to only find ONE good spot holding Big Bass.
-The other 40 spots will become easy for you to locate on your own.
-It takes 60 spots, hard fishing, 3 hours at daylight, moving fast, covering 3 spots each morning; just to find the best 3 spots with big fish on a shallow water bite.
-Having 3 shallow water spots to go to in a tournament will draw you a check every time.
-You will gain knowledge of how to follow these fish when they move each day back to their comfort zones.
-Nothing wrong with repeating a spot to be absolutely sure if it is holding fish OR not. I always give the quality spots a second chance.
-You will learn what makes a quality spot.
-You will learn how to find the best spots to fish when the BAD weather moves in.

On cloudy and drizzly mornings you will be able to cover some added spots before your bite moves back to the comfort zone which will help shorten the process of covering 60 spots on the lake.

You Will Learn The Techniques Of My Search Baits:

- Spook - Fluke/Back up - Spinner Baits - Living Rubber Skirts - Baby Doll Jigs - Blade Jigs - Soft Plastics.
You will learn the importance of using scents:
- Minnow - Night Crawler - Crayfish - Craylic

Have you ever considered writing a book?

Wrote one back in the 70's, "Where To Go In Extreme Western Kentucky", for the Chamber of Commerce. It was way too consuming and took away from my fishing. HA.. It was just a paper back for them to have on hand for any hunters and fisherman coming to the area. Lots of great articles of where to go and how to get into the public hunting and fishing areas on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.

It had my hand drawn maps, many pictures of catches and kills, phone numbers of the right contacts, how to catch Bass, how to set up for ducks, geese and deer, places to stay over night and best places to eat. The bad thing about books that really help you today find the right spots is they are time specific. Now everything has changed and it is basically worthless.

Many have asked what they get for the Mapping work.
This a sample of what I do.
- You get the 20 screen shots of the best spots that I have found.
- You get a full write up of 1 - 20 on each of those spots.
- You get my article on tracking them to where they live.
- Ledger to keep up with catches and notes.
- Paper Map marked with the 20 spots.
- Search bait package and all the techniques for fishing them.

I've been studying the materials that Don produced for me while waiting for the weather to warm up to above freezing. I have to say that the price he charges for the info he provides is a bargain. If you're interested in a breakdown of your favorite lake and don't have 5-10+ years to spend on figuring it out yourself one weekend at a time, then I highly recommend his service. If you're specifically targeting big bass, then Don's mapping service coupled with Bill Murphy's book "In Pursuit of Giant Bass" could be a winning combo.

It's not a slam dunk; you still have to put in the time on the water. Armed with Don's materials to help you learn how to break down the rest of your lake, you can spend that time fishing the water that is probably the most productive.

Tight lines!
