Baitfish would be a good start, either by spotting the fish themselves, or spotting birds. Cormorants active in the area (as opposed to roosting) would normally indicate baitfish present that the Bass could feed on.

Where are you fishing?

We saw a number of cormorants working close inshore yesterday and yet we blanked. I think this was due to lack of clarity and low water temps yet we knew the cormorants were onto something....

i was working in criccieth yesterday,the sea was quite rough and the water very coloured,also on the bird thing,cormarants feed on a wide range of things and their presence should not be taken as a given that the kind of fish a bass preys on are there,still a bit early up here and the water temp at in the criccieth/porthmadoc area is a couple of degrees lower than the north lleyn peninsula/ dinas dinlle ,newborough/aberfraw/rhosneigr areas,where bass have started to show to bait.

Of course they wont indicate there is Bass there, but on a stretch of coast where you dont know where to start, starting somewhere where there is obviously a food source of some kind like that is better than just starting closest to the car.

I blanked last night :-(

where were you guys fishing? was around st caths area on saturday evening as was working earlier on and missed the meet. Had a quick plugging session using the RB 270 and have to say that after using the TR4 the RB 270 felt like a scaffolding bar, a least no worries about snapping the tip. lol
