Bass fishing is one of the most exciting forms of fishing that there is out there. It is fast, exciting and exhilarating. If you have ever taken your young ones Bass fishing you will know exactly what I am talking about.
If you want to be able to catch those big lunkers and provide that excitement and fun for the family, then maybe this post will be able to help out. Here are some tips that will help you become a better Bass Fisherman.
The first tip that I can give you is lure selection. Bass usually feed upon mostly anything and everything so the type of lure you choose to use shouldn’t matter too much. If you need some suggestions or guidance, I’d recommend ether trying out Worms, Jigs, Spinnerbaits or some Crank Bait.
The second thing that I am going to tell you is about the location of these types of fish. Bass love cooler waters. In the mid summer when it is very hot out, Bass will usually search for deeper water, or a sheltered place so that they can stay cool.
If you are fishing at this time of year, look for areas with lots of rocks that offer protection and deeper waters. This is where most of the Bass hang out on those really hot summer days.
In addition to deeper waters, you can also try an area with lots of plants or weeds. This is a favorite amongst many fish because of the fact that there is many bugs and lots to feed upon here. This means that if there is fish there they are more then likely looking for something to eat. Drop your line down there and you will most likely get a bite in no time.
Just when fishing in these areas, beware of logs and snags. This is the only problem. that seems to happen in this tight areas with lots of weeds and other junk.
So hopefully now you will have a bit of a better idea on how you can go about fishing for Bass.

Bass fishing is an enthralling sport. Every one will aspire to come out successfully in any sport or game. To be a good angler one should know the information that is discussed below.
Depth of the water
Any water body will have three layers. They are deep layer, middle layer and surface layer. The surface layer will be warmer than the middle layer and the middle layer will be warmer than the deep layer.
Before heading for the bass fishing you need to know the existence of the three layers and should be able to find out the temperature of the three layers. Thermometers can be used effectively to measure the temperature of the different layers of water.
Bass fish prefers comfortable temperature. In hot weather condition the bass fish will remain in the deep layer as it will be cold. During cold weather condition the bass fish will try to remain in the middle or top layer.
Temperature of the water
The metabolism of the bass fish is influenced by temperature of the water. There is no second opinion that bass fish can withstand temperature fluctuations better.
Bass fishing can be done thorough out the year when the temperature of the water is around 70 -75 degree Celsius. The bass fishing is possible even when the temperature is around 32-39 degree Celsius.
When the temperature of the water becomes cold the movement of the bass fish is getting slower. This piece of information will help the anglers immensely to get big booty of bass fish.
Clarity of the water
Bass can survive well in both clear and murky water. Bass fish tries to remain in the deeper water for most of the time. They tend to come to the top layer only for feeding and reproduction.
Male fish remain near the nest and does the protection job. The male bass fish will enter in to the fight with any intruder who comes near the nest with the aim of destroying or eating.
Noise or vibration or other disturbances
Bass fishes are highly sensitive to vibration and noises. Here you need to keep the place as quite as possible. Any kind of noise will scare away the bass fish. It is better to reach the selected place without much disturbance to the water and stay put and goes for deep water bass fishing.
Time of the day, effect of sunlight and color or the prey
Experienced anglers feel that dawn and the dusk are the best time for successful bass fishing. The best feeding time for the bass fish is dawn and dusk. The bass can be lured with the live or artificial bait at this time.
The noon time is not at all suited for bass fishing because the bass stop feeding and go deep in the water in search of cooler place.
The bass fish are more attracted by the light colored fast moving prey. you can use light colored bait that moves fast or create vibrations, your chances of making the bass fish to strike and get hooked is bright.
However bass fishing can go on in other times also. The success depends on your strategy in attracting the bass fish to strike and get caught.
Change of season, time and other things
The season is not going to be the same all through the year. There are so many other things like sun light, water movement, speed of water, direction of the flow etc. also change.
There is no fixed time and season for bass fishing. Bass fishing can be done successfully even during severe cold season [ice fishing] provided you also change your strategy and technique in line with the changes in the season climate and other things
The nature and the habitat of the bass fish
Try and know as much as possible about the nature and habitat of the bass fish. This can be achieved by reading the related articles and discussing with the seasoned anglers.
Once you are thorough with the nature and habitat of the fish you can successfully select the place for bass fishing. Once the place is selected thinking in the lines of bass fish will increase you chance of enjoying a successful bass fishing
Knowing preferred habitats of the bass fish is possible although the map that contains the complete details of the place selected for the bass fishing. You need to find and select a map that has even minute details like length, depth and slope of the surface of the water body.
The bass prefers to stay at deep waters. Once you know the depth and the surface detail of the water body you can select the place for bass fishing more accurately. Deep lake with a slope floor is the best place to look for bass fish.

Colin McKeown from The New Fly Fisher discusses how to use poppers to catch smallmouth bass. Colin is fishing at Hawk Lake Lodge which is famous for the large number of smallmouth which can be readily caught on topwater presentations. Smallmouth at Hawk Lake go up to 23″ or more, with several catch & release world records caught over the past few years. A must go destination for anglers.www.hawk-lodge.com
