STRIKE ZONE

In bass fishing, the strike zone basically represents the visual range in which the largemouth bass has the highest probability of attacking the prey. In reality the Strike Zone is a more extended concept and also represents the area or areas in which the fisherman concentrates more in each fishing session. The places where we think it is most likely to find active predators, shady areas, covers, obstacles, rocks, submerged trees and much more.
Below I created a chart that helps us understand how to best delineate the Strike Zone. I was inspired by an article in an old fishing magazine and I hope it will be useful.

STRIKE ZONE IS MORE…..

it also represents the area or areas where it is most likely to find active predators

Reeds

The ideal habitat for largemouth bass, especially in small ponds.

Covers

Each type of cover offers perfect shelter for the largemouth bass

Shady Areas

The largemouth bass always prefers to hunt in the shady areas.

Waterlilies

We find them especially in summer, they offer shelter and oxygenation.

Grass

The grass supplies oxygen, hosts insects and small invertebrates, an ideal habitat for black bass.

Submerged Tree

Here the largemouth bass finds the perfect habitat for hunting small prey.

Rocks

The rocks store more heat, excellent spot even in the cold seasons.

Structures

Artificial structures are a source of shelter and forage.
