Bass Fishing Tips - Top 5 Best Tips for Catching Bass

May 18, 2008
This article will discuss five excellent tips for catching more bass. It is a proven fact that 5% of the anglers catch 90% of the fish. By following these principles you can become one of that 5% that consistently catches their limit.

1 Vary the presentation in which you fish your artificial lures. I observe many fishermen move their boat to an area, tie on a lure and then proceed to fish that lure at the same speed casting to the same area. They will do this for an extended period of time and then declare the area lacking in fish. You need to vary your presentation.

Bass are a peculiar species. What works well one day may not the next. For instance, suppose you discreetly position your boat near a large section of lily pads in four foot deep water. To thoroughly fish an area such as this you need to cast both along the edges of the pads and if that is not successful you need to cast to pockets in the middle of the pads. You also need to vary the speed and depth of your offering.

In this scenario I would likely start by selecting a spinnerbait as my artificial lure of choice. I would begin by casting along the edge of the pads, retrieving fast so the lure ran no deeper than one foot below the surface. If I was not having success using this approach my next option would be to slow down my retrieve and allow the lure to run at a 2-3 foot depth. You would be surprised the difference this can and will make.

Always fish an area thoroughly and using your entire arsenal of baits and techniques. Be versatile and learn to fish in many different ways. This allows you adjust to the behavior of the fish and catch them all the time rather than only occasionally.

2)When fishing for Largemouth Bass always look for wood. Wood is a magnet for Largemouth Bass and is without a doubt the number one place to try and catch them. Fallen trees and standing timber are equally excellent choices.

3)Understand what you are doing and fish with a plan in mind.

You should try and think like the fish you are trying to catch. For instance, everyone knows that shoreline areas are excellent places to fish. But many people do not understand why. These people will fish any shoreline at random and wonder why some produce and others do not.

Think like the fish, think about the food chain. Shorelines that offer access to deep water are much better than those that do not. Shorelines with trees hanging over them and steep banks are much better also. Think of the food chain. Steep banks and hanging trees deposit bugs and other small creatures into the water. These creatures are eaten by small fish which in turn attract the bass to these areas.
