Nothing gets our heart and our blood pounding faster than finding an isolated hidden structure when we’re fishing for Bass, Northern Pike, muskies, Lake Trout. But on hard-fished waters the big stuff is obvious, so what you’re looking for are subtle, subtle changes.
Now, a subtle change could be five or six boulders lying on the bottom. It could be a breakline where the depth changes just twelve inches—one foot. To us, it looks like absolutely nothing. To the fish, it looks like the CN Tower.
So you’re fishing hard waters? Hard pressured waters for tough, conditioned fish? Forget about the giant obvious structures and cover. If you look for those little, subtle changes, you’re going to be successful.
