Beating the banks, shoreline fishing.
Why do so many people fish the banks?
Well, one reason is obvious – that’s where they catch fish.
Of course, the percentage of time bass spend in the “shallows” (which can be a relative term, depending upon the body of water you are fishing) is relatively low. They spend more time in deeper water, yet people, “beat the banks” and fish the shoreline more than open water. This is especially true of novice or beginning anglers.
More than anything, I expect it’s a comfort thing. The bank or shore gives anglers a target, whereas in the open water they have to rely more on electronics (which really, shouldn’t be that big of a deal anymore with advancements literally arriving daily).
