Bass Fishing Tips
If you like catching bass, consider the following bass fishing tips to make your next fishing trip a good one.
Bass Fishing Tips #1
If you are fishing early in the morning or late in the evening and the water is completely calm, consider using a top water lure. A top water lure, popped or dragged across the surface of the water will attract bigger bass looking for an easy meal. As you pop or drag the lure across the water, pause for a few seconds before beginning again. This will not only simulate the true action of a prey, but it will give the bass a chance to come underneath it and pop it up before taking it down. When you do see the lure popped, wait a moment and allow the fish to take it before setting the hook.
Bass Fishing Tips #2
Most bass love to lie underneath logs and other thick vegetation as cover. These are excellent places to fish and you will need a weedless hook to navigate your way through the cover so it will not catch and hook itself to anything. You can use a weedless hook with many types of bait and its a great way to put your bait exactly where the fish are located.
Bass Fishing Tips #3
Most bass cannot resist a worm. There are many sizes and colors of soft plastic worms to choose from and bass may prefer one type of color combination over others depending on where you live or what time of the year it is. Soft plastic technology has created these lures to be extremely life-like and you can use a variety of setups such as a Carolina Rig or a Texas Rig to skirt your worm along the water bottom and through the logs and vegetation. When you feel a possible hit, wait a moment because the fish may have taken only the tail end of the worm and has not yet taken it in completely, including the hook. When you feel something bigger than a tug, like a long pull, set the hook and reel it in.
Bass Fishing Tips #4
Nothing else beats live bait for bass fishing. If you are using a minnow or similar bait, hook the fish either through the lower and upper lip, or through the tail. You can even use a weedless hook to work the bait through the vegetation. Allow your live bait to work its own way through the water and only reel the line in periodically to keep it moving or keep the line tight. Depending on the size of the bait and the bass, expect an immediate hit and be ready to set your hook. For bigger bass, use a bigger bait such as a salamander. These will walk along the bottom and live much longer than a minnow.
