Vertical Fishing

One deadly summer and fall bass technique is to helicopter a spinnerbait against vertical structures like tall trees, bluffs walls, and bridge pylons. Bounce the bait off the structure, open the bale and let it drop vertically while maintaining line control. Watch for the slightest hesitation in the line, and set the hook. You can fish miles of wall structure in lakes and rivers that many anglers pass.
