Cover always gives predatory fish a good point of ambush so get close to or underneath piers, weed beds, boat docks and any other natural parasols. Fry and other baits will congregate around these shaded areas of creeks; overhangs, fallen trees and bass also feel safer in those habitats. These obstacles naturally lead to more snags. Selecting sensible crank baits, spinner or spoon will also depend on how confident and accurate you can be at presenting your fishing hooks.
Bass baits fall into two main categories, soft and hard. The best fishing lures for them include: soft baits include: creatures, frogs, lizards, craw daddies, worms, minnows, nymphs, flies. Hard baits: include crank baits that float, sink, skim or pop along and under the surface. Also spoons and spinners, bait hooks, weights, bobbers, and extra jig heads should all be part of the same essential bass fishing parcel.
Using surface lures during the middle of the day is the most popular way to coax Bass. Walking baits, buzzbaits, crankbaits, jigs, slow sinking spinners and spoons worked with a flip or pitching method can often produce more bass if you alter the retrieval speed.
Surface lures are also especially lethal during the calm of morning or late evening when fish are at their feeding peak. If you prefer to night fish for Bass don’t forget imitation mice, rats and frogs.
A rod and reel with the correct action and balance for you alone are the obvious pieces of equipment for any fishing trip. Bass fishing always demands that you choose a combination that best suits the environments you’ll be fishing in. Make sure you invest wisely and go for the best combo your budget will allow; otherwise you’ll be back for a new one before you know it.
