I made the cast well beyond where I knew the submerged brush pile laid. The summer air was warm so I figured the bass would be suspended around the structure.
The water depth was 12-feet and I was finding bass about 8-9 feet down.
Because I wanted to cover as much water per cast as I could, I was throwing a crankbait. As the lure passed along the edge of the brush I could feel it moving through the twigs.
Then I felt something that was definitely NOT a twig.
