Learn some Basic Guides on Bass Fishing
As you spend more and more hours and days on bass fishing, you will acquire lots of​ knowledge about the right lure and technique for the proper way to​ do this sport .​
The best advice most experienced and seasoned bass fishermen, is​ to​ examine the fishing conditions, ask for tips from anglers familiar with the waters you are fishing in, and finally, try many different lures and bass-fishing techniques until you discover what works most effectively to​ the situation, and which one you are most comfortable with.
Here are some Guides to​ Bass Fishing to​ become a​ better Bass Fisher.
The Technique:
The bait must fall to​ the preferred depth, then you have to​ shake the rod tip .​
By this, you'll be getting the fishes attention .​
Do this for at​ least 30 seconds, then shaking again for about 2 or​ 3 seconds intervals, stop and pull slowly about six inches .​
Then dropping again, slowly back and down and repeating the process .​
The first thing to​ remember if​ they're not biting is​ to​ slow down .​
• During Springtime, fish uphill (position the boat in​ shallow water and cast to​ deep water) and use a​ 1/8 ounce weight.
• Fish downhill in​ Fall.
• Try to​ use a​ Texas rigged worm to​ prevent hang-ups.
• Fish out the worm and keep suspended 90% of​ the time.
• Always try to​ sharpen the hooks to​ make sure you have maximized your hookup percentage.

• When doodling, it​ is​ critical to​ keep your presentation natural by downsizing your hooks to​ 1/0 or​ lower, and paying delicate, attention to​ how straight your bait is​ in​ order to​ maintain a​ natural presentation .​
• Crystal clear waters can be tough .​
The secret to​ fishing weenie worms is​ to​ keep slack on your line and shake the bait instead of​ dragging .​
The shaking of​ the rod and your light line gives your worm, grub or​ reaper an​ amazing action .​
When to​ Go:
When the bass quit hitting during the daytime and when it​ becomes uncomfortably hot on the lake are good signals that it's time to​ start night fishing .​
Night fishing is​ usually practiced when the water is​ in​ the mid-60s or​ warmer.

Places to​ Fish:
Where to​ fish at​ night is​ a​ question commonly asked by bass fishermen .​
Bass don't move great distances in​ most situations .​
Smallmouth bass, especially, are proven stay-at-homes .​
As the summer wears on, the bass tend to​ move deeper and won't come up shallow, even at​ night in​ many lakes .​
Night fishing is​ productive when the bass are within the 20-foot zone

Tips and Guides
• Position yourself only as​ far away as​ water clarity dictates; stay close enough for consistent accuracy.
• Try to​ make the lure land on the water with as​ little noise as​ possible .​
Cast past the target when possible.
• In windy weather, put tension on the line just before the lure touches down .​
This will straighten out the line and prevent it​ from blowing across obstructions.
• Learn casting techniques that permit a​ low trajectory, such as​ flipping, pitching, sidearm casting and underhand casting.
• Use a​ quality rod and reel matched to​ the weight of​ the lure .​
Rods with a​ stiff blank but relatively fast (limber) tip are easier to​ cast than extremely stiff or​ uniformly limber rods.
• Cast with the wrist, not the arm and shoulder.
• Lower the lure a​ few inches below the rod tip before casting; this gives extra momentum for the cast.
• Be sure to​ load the rod tip, causing it​ to​ bend backward, on the back-cast, then whip the rod forward smoothly.
• Fill the spool of​ any type reel to​ within 1/8 inch of​ the lip of​ the spool .​

The Flip-Cast; use your wrist, NOT your arm.
• Concentrate on the spot you want to​ hit, not on what you want to​ miss.
• Use plenty of​ scent when trying to​ penetrate thick cover - it​ acts as​ a​ lubricant.
• Stick to​ basic jig colors (black/blue, brown/brown, black/chartreuse).
• Use a​ plastic worm with a​ glass bead between the worm and the weight for inactive fish.
• If you think it's a​ strike, reel down until your rod is​ in​ a​ hookset position before you check.
• A strike is​ anything different (something you wouldn't feel in​ a​ bathtub!).
• Tighten your drag all the way down for better hooksets.
• Use 17 to​ 25 pound test line for bait casting gear, 10 to​ 14 pound test on spinning (for flipping finesse baits).
In order to​ establish a​ pattern it​ is​ essential you understand how a​ bass lives in​ its environment .​
Knowing where the bass can be found at​ any given time or​ place is​ something you must develop .​
Always go fishing with a​ plan in​ mind .​
Remember that every fish you catch can reveal clues on how to​ catch another .​
After establishing a​ pattern, realize that when the action slows down in​ the area you were fishing, you can then search for more areas that would fill the same criteria .​
