heavy fishing pressure..day break or sun down?

Basically to avoid the pressure is it best to get out early or late? I wanna avoid the croweds. During the week i would imagine after work hours are bad and weekends are bad all day lol.

Early morning is best, followed by the evening. You can also be part of a mean afternoon bite if you time it right. I kinda, sorta do this for a living

For heavy pressure bass would live bait work well? I know other finesse techniques work but im a weekend warrior.

Depends on where you are. Near me, weekdays are pretty empty no matter what time. I'd say evenings on the weekends would be less crowded than mornings

Lucky bastard...

As for the OP's question I tend to find more pressure from other anglers in the evening than in the morning.

Check the laws, live bait is outlawed here for bass. You want to get the boat in the water just before sun up. that will be your best bet. Drop shot has been a favorite of mine in mid summer pressure when you have to work for a bite.

its all trial and error my friend. i could write page after page my experiences. hell, just yesterday i had a big ol bass try to eat the 11" rainbow trout i was reeling in next to the dock.

start with doing a lot of reading and research. try the wacky senko and drop shot. cheap rigs that i think perform great.
wacky:

i used a different more aggressive and smaller hook but the idea is the same.
drop shot:

i use a small hook here as well. the key is to use a palamar knot so the hook point is pointing up as in the picture. then you cast it out to the structure your fishing and shake it. move it a little, shake some more, abd repeat.
