I have heard of a few things in my day, but this was a new one on me. I remember seeing some minnows and always some frogs in the local drain, but never thought to drop a line into the drain.
But, if you think about it, it only makes sense and here is my theory. The rain falls and levels escalate, bass get into areas they normally can’t get and then, of course, the levels recede and then Mr. Bass is stuck in the sewer. The bass should have an endless supply of food unless Mr. Drought shows up and then he has an even bigger issue to worry about and that is life itself.
The other picture here is the tidal view, similar to the other philosophy of water levels, but it enables the bass to move in and out of an area with less concerns in my view of getting stuck. I have fished plenty of creek mouths in my day and I would guess fishing the mouth of a sewage drain is much the same.
Anyway, I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I will look at another sewage drain quite the same way from now on and if I have a fishing pole handy, I might just drop a line in.
I’m the Bass Dude!
