For years businesses have rode on the vast interest Bass
fishing has generated. Many people are hooked, pardon the pun,
on this hobby and have elevated it to a sport and a passion.
Resorts, sports gears and lines have been built and many more
aspects have benefited from these interest.
Today, there are more and more people trying to learn and find
out what the buzz is all about. Bass fishing is more than just
catching a fish. Its now about getting those prized big bass
and having the opportunity to show it off. For beginners there
are lots more to bass fishing that meets the eye.
First, try to know the lures that you must have to enjoy bass
And do you know what the top 3 lures for catching Bass are?
Although there was no particular gauge that was presented by
the researchers, a survey was performed among the pro bass
fishermen and it was found that plastic worms was the most
patronized and ranking on the second and third place were the
spinner bait and then the crank bait.
However, picking one of these 3 is not enough. Some factors
still needed to be considered. Primarily, you must consider if
it is better to cover a smaller segment of water thoroughly or
skim across a larger area as quickly as possible to find fish.
Using a worm is slower, but absolutely effective and is very
seductive to Bass. They do best when the fish are schooled
a particular structure.
The problem that usually arise with fishing with a worm is the
inability to sense strikes. Usually the inability to sense
is due to a sinker that is too heavy and a line that is too
To help you to overcome this predicament you are advised to
a variable buoyancy worm using lead strip sinkers. Here are
of its advantages:
• No moving lead on the line to dampen the feel of a gentle
• You can apply the precise amount of lead to deliver the worm
• It makes it easier for a bass to inhale the worm
• It aids in hook setting
• It's easier to shake loose from snags
• You can cause the worm to hang virtually suspended over the
bottom when fishing shallow water.
To tell how much lead strip is needed, wrap one strip around
the hook and bury the barb in the worm. Ease it into the water
and watch it sink, it should barely settle toward the bottom.
If it sinks to fast, take some off, etc. Make sure to use no
heavier than 8-pound mono line - preferably 6 pound.
On the other hand, a Spinner bait can be moved more quickly
across the surface and can be bounced on the bottom, sent
against a tree limb and moved in many different ways in order
to stimulate strikes. It is a great probing lure for the
shoreline because of its tangle-free construction.
Lastly, Crank baits cover a lot of water in a hurry. Using
them, you can check out a spot without wasting too much time.
You can use them for locating fish that may be scattered.
The most important thing is, no matter what lure you select
the particular lake that you are fishing on, you need to make
as easy for the Bass to get at it as possible. Drop that lure
right in front of them. Scientists have proven that Bass
calculate the amount of energy it will take them to go after

Aside from considering the lures, it is also important to
determine the accurate time in going for bass fishing.
Dawn and dusk are definitely when the biggest bass can be
brought in. First, remember that bass love ambush spots
offering lots of cover from the baitfish. They like to hid,
pounce on their prey.
These bait fish are most active in the early morning or
evening. When they feed, bass follow because the baitfish is
less aware of threats when they feed. Go out fishing during
these times for the best success.
When retrieving an underwater lure in poor light, keep it
coming at a steady pace once it is set in motion. This will
make it easier for bass to locate and grab it.
The last thing is, don't bother going out in the dawn/dusk
water is below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature wipes
certain aquatics and terrestrials, which nullifies the food
Lures and proper time of going on bass fishing are ample
factors only that must be taken into account because other
aspects such as water quality considerations and weather
conditions are also necessary for you to win the game on bass
