To kayak fishing pro Richie Moschella, weeds are the best spot to fish.

Fishing Skill: Fishing In The Weeds | Kayak Angler Magazine | Rapid Media: "I can still remember the feeling of paddling into a cove on a local lake I fish in New Jersey.

Baits That Trigger Reaction Bites | The Ultimate Bass Fishing Resource Guide® LLC: "The next time you’re headed to the lake, think about how you plan to catch those fish. I say that because most anglers think about choosing irresistible lures that will entice bass into striking. However, I think anglers should focus more attention on a fish’s natural reaction, especially on those tough days when weather fronts have taken the edge off their aggressiveness or when the fish are getting a lot of angling pressure."
