No matter how experienced you are as fishermen, you should always be willing (and trying!) to get your hands on some good tips on how to catch your favorite fish. The true test of the fishing tip lies in a) the source, b) it’s proven success and c) it helping you in catching more fish! What works for you might not be what works for someone else. Worse yet – what doesn’t work for you (but you think it does) gives all the fish to someone else.
Good Bass Fishing Tips
There are lots fishing tips that are floating around with special emphasis on catching bass. One of the most important tips however (not only for bass fishing but for any other species) is that the fisherman has to be extremely familiar with the fish he/she wants to catch. If you are fishing for bass, you should know where they live, what they eat, where they like to frequent and why, how to locate them in the morning and at night, and the best way to attract them. This may be precisely what you are looking for. This is where the research comes in on finding those bass fishing tips.
Bass Fishing Tip #1
You cannot fish for bass, or any other fish, unless you are comfortable with the location / destination the fishing for that species takes place. For example, there is specific type of bass called the Peacock Bass that lives in the Amazon River. If you want to catch it, pack your bags and head to the Amazons because you won’t find it anywhere else. So, know where your fish live before you attempt to start catching them somewhere they don’t swim. Believe it or not, simple mistakes like not knowing where the bass you’re fishing for is not uncommon. Don’t be the dummy!
Bass fishing Tip #3
Summer is the season for fishing, especially for bass fishing. It’s just too bad that summer boating, hot tempratures, etc. make bass fishing more difficult. But if you’re a goal setter and a die-hard fisherman set on catching some great bass, you will have to plan a trip to your summer destination… like Florida – or at least some place where the bass live and you can take your pick. They will be following the crayfish which is their favorite food. If you have a well known spot or place you always enjoy fishing then take advantage! Steer clear of popular boating areas that scare the fish away. If you do not, I would recommend looking at one of the fishing guides we’ve reviewed – lots of great information to get you on your way.
Bass Fishing Tip #4
Unless you have a fair idea of what you are doing, no matter how many fish are in the sea, you won’t be able to catch one of them. They guy next to you who’s been fishing since he was 5 with his father and grandfather will be catching everything you’re not. You should know how to use each and every piece in your angling box; carrying with you adequate lures and live bait which are ONLY for bass. The method of fishing, your style of fishing and the fishing implements you carry will have to complement one another perfectly if you want to have an easy and enjoyable time bass fishing.
There is a lot to learn, so be patient, it will come. I congratulate you on taking the first steps to learning great new tips on making your perfect catch. For more tips, have a look at the bass fishing guides we’ve reviewed – these are a great start to getting you on your way to catching all the bass you can dream of. Good luck and happy fishing!
