Brandon Palaniuk is back on a highland reservoir in the early Spring pre spawn targeting bass in ~57 degree water with a glide bait, jig, dropshot and jerkbait. The lake he is fishing is clear and deep, so he's using his Humminbird electronics and LakeMaster Maps to locate prime pre spawn areas. This body of water also has trout, which can change the behavior of bass and affect your rule selection. Join Brandon as he goes out in search of highland reservoir bass and maybe a trout.
