Pay particular attention to areas where two types of vegetation are interspersed: milfoil and duckweed, lily pads and reeds, or hydrilla and peppergrass. Such changes agree with baitfish, which is the main reason bass are there in the first place.
Learn the grasses that don't appeal to fish and skip them. In Wheeler, a nasty thin-stranded weed called "stargrass" runs rampant during the summer in some areas where hydrilla beds have been sprayed with herbicides to reduce their coverage. Hydrilla, elodea and the like produce dissolved oxygen, which is another reason fish are comfortable around them. Apparently oxygen isn't a by-product of stargrass, which is why bass generally avoid it.
Focus on weed line changes. In a lake where the bottom is as smooth and featureless as the inside of a bowl, the outside edges of weed lines serve double duty as cover and structure. Bass may relate to oddities in the linesÐplaces where there are indentations or points in their mass and spots along the shoreline where there is vegetation surrounded by open water.
Look for places where there is dissimilar cover, such as stumps, fallen trees, bushes, rocks, etc. To a bass, that's like finding out your ice cream also has nuts in it.
Concentrate on areas in weed beds where structure such as a point or hump is surrounded by deeper water.
