There have been an almost infinite number of articles written about how bass relate to various types of structure and cover.

The North American fish that feed at the bottom of lakes, rivers and oceans include some of the most primitive fish in existence. These bottom feeders often possess special adaptations that allow them to access easily the invertebrate creatures, clams, fish, worms and other potential foods at the bottom of the waters in which they live. The anatomical features that make this possible include a ventral mouth — meaning it points downward — and small appendages of skin called barbels that help the fish feel for food along the bottom.

Divers huddle together, clutching coffee cups. Steam rises from between their hands, disappearing against a backdrop of gray skies and grayer water.
