"The Dean" Pete Gluszek says, "Come on with the rain, I've a smile on my face". Most guys want to stay home and work on tackle or park it in front of the TV when the rain clouds come rollin' in, but not Pete Gluszek, he knows the fish will be biting. If you were catching them when the sun was out and the water was clear, you may have to make adjustments, but, in most cases, the strike zone will open up and the bass will usually be more willing to bite. There are some exceptions, which Pete discusses in this bass fishing class video seminar.
