August Zone 3 with Mark Menendez

Zone 3 – August

Strike King pro Mark Menendez uncovers the secrets to targeting bass in Zone 3 during the month of August.

Menendez shares that the water will be in the upper 80’s and current will be a huge factor. “Fishing will be determined by how much current will be pulled in most lakes,” says Menendez. If fishing in an area where there is no current, Menendez recommends another spot to find bass. “If there’s no current, head to biggest source of natural inflowing water to find resident bass,” he states.
