Bryan New's home lake is Lake Wylie, and something that he's confident about on lakes in the Carolinas is the ability to sight fish all the way through to Fall. Now, he's not targeting the traditional bass on the bed when sight fishing, but there are other things going on in the lake, and patternable bass activities that make them visible in summer and autumn. In this bass fishing class seminar, New breaks down his favorite baits to cover water looking for cruising bass, areas that he targets when looking for catchable bass, his go-to last-ditch-effort bait for cruising bass that won't react to other power fishing baits and addressing the wear and tear of running wide open all day on your equipment. Bryan New wraps it up by answering a handful of student questions about sight fishing in summer and fall and takes a quick jab at the dean.
