“My local bass lake is always good for a few smallmouth, and there’s always the possibility of a dandy fish kicking around,” said Ryan Anderson, of Nova Scotia. “On this day I started catching smallies off docks, and it never stopped. Fish after fish, schooled up and attacking white spinnerbaits and suspending X-Raps like they hadn’t eaten in months. 

Ryan Anderson fished a white spinnerbait to hook up with these big brown bass.

Countless 13 to 15″ fish all day long, with enough 15″+ fish to keep me going through the rain that showed up occasionally through the day. Its days like this that provide the motivation for the early mornings for months after it’s happened.”

To catch bass on cloudy days, throw a suspending jerkbait or spinnerbait.
