The Joy of Successful Bass Fishing

Nov 9, 2007
Bass fishing has been considered both a very popular hobby, and a sport rich in competitions and events. There are many different species of Bass, but three of the most popular are the Kentucky Bass, the Small Bass and the Largemouth Bass.

Bass Finishing originated sometime during the middle of the 18th century, though was thought to be more popular for food rather than recreation during that period. Bass fishing became a popular sport in 1768, and has been gaining popularity ever since. There are many different ways to catch a Bass, several of which will be detailed in this article.

Live Bait Bass Fishing - Live bait bass fishing is one of the most popular forms of Bass fishing. There are many popular types of bait, including wild shiners, worms and shad. Live bait fishing is said to be the easiest way for anyone to catch the bigger Bass fish. Generally, you will find that Bass fish prefer bait that is alive and moving healthily, so you must take care not to kill whatever bait you are using in order for it to remain viable as a lure for the fish.

Spinner Bass Fishing - Spinner fishing is done using fishing lures, which is a very popular method among fishermen who fish for sport. The best time overall for the use of lures is either first thing during the morning, or very late at night. Fishing with the use of lures can require quite a bit of patience if you want to figure out which lure is right for a specific area. The spinner you use should be brighter when the water in your area is darker if you want to be effective.

Plug Fishing - Plug fishing is another type of lure fishing. There are many different types of plugs, including some which are meant to float on the surface and others which are meant for the Bass that swim deep. Bass are a predatory fish by nature, and only prefer to eat food which is alive. Plug fishing has become popular over live bait fishing in recent years, because certain plugs give off vibrations and movements which appear as live bait to the Bass. When the bait appears to be alive, even when it is not, it will have a better chance of attracting the best fish.

Bass fishing can be considered both a hobby and a sport, and is gaining popularity in both forms. There are two major United States Bass fishing tournaments each year, which offer first prizes ranging from $500,000 to $1,000,000. These are the Bass master Tournament Trail, and the Wal-Mart FLW Tour. These tournaments have gained so much popularity that they are now broadcast all over the country on television. Bass fishing is a past time well worth picking up if you enjoy fishing, and you can look forward to some great catches if you really put your energy into it.
