The percentage triangle is the concept Brandon Palaniuk uses for locating high percentage areas where the bass are likely to be, based on the season and water temperature. The next time you study a lake map, you will be able to utilize the percentage triangle to locate big bass for your upcoming fishing trip or tournament!
