Here comes Combs

The best case scenario is showing promise for Keith Combs, who just moved into second place according to BASSTrakk. Combs favors offshore fishing in his home state waters when the bass begin to move to deeper water following the spawn. When those fish gather over post spawn staging areas and eventually to deeper water those ideal conditions play into the hand of Combs.

That is what is happening now as he throws a crankbait in what he described on Bassmaster LIVE as one of his six best areas.

“All I need is for them to fire,” he said.

Those are dangerous words from this offshore expert. All week Combs has bet on the come of postspawn fish moving to his chosen areas. Earlier in the week he told me that would happen next week. That might happen sooner. Stay tuned.
