Fishing Points for Bass
Bill Dance
Points are important structures when targeting fall bass.

Most experienced bass anglers know that points are extremely important structures in fall because they represent the final transition from the shoreline to open water. As the lake cools, bass gravitate to points to ambush passing bait fish schools.

The popularity of points, however, can make them subject to excessive fishing pressure on most bass lakes. So instead of flinging lures at every point you come across, spend time probing a few good ones.

Boulder points are often associated with the old river channel where the current will be intensified which means cooler water, higher levels of dissolved oxygen, and more forage.

Stumpy points that make a sudden descent into deep water can also be good. The key is that big lone stump perched at the edge of the drop.
