This is Exactly Why We Fish the Lily Pads

fish the lily pads

Bass fishing in the lily pads puts an excitement in our hearts that can’t be beat, and here’s why.

There’s not much that can jump start our imagination like sitting in the middle of some cover that looks like it could hold the next lunker.

Entering a big, beautiful patch of lilies can do just that. Every single one of those wide green leaves must have a big bass under it, right?

This fisherman was on top of the right stretch of pads in this great video showing just how a hog largemouth will blow up under your bait when you least expect it.

I thought he was going to land that brute with his feet!

A good heavy-action rod and reel casting combo and 20-pound test braided line will get you through slop like that just fine.

When you can fish in the middle of our favorite cover with your bare feet and land bass like that one… just heaven!
