Everyone wants to discover the secret to catching the big bass. There are many elements that go into finding big bass. This article will look at a few bass fishing tips you might use to land the big one next time.
One of the first and most important things that you need understand when you’re trying to catch bigger fish is that you’re going to have to slow down. Larger bass move slower than the smaller bass. By slowing your presentation down to leave the bait in the strike zone longer – giving them a chance to look it over and possibly take your bait.
One of the best big bass fishing lures is a green pumpkin or black and blue Jig. I prefer to use a jig with a weed guard on it, which is a stiff set of bristles that go just over the hook to keep it from grabbing on all the weeds and grass.
Long plastic worms
Another really big fish bait that is used by many bass fishing pros is a long plastic worm. A 10 or 12 inch snake like looking worm can be deadly on the right body of water. I tend to prefer dark browns or black colors when fishing with longer worms. Make sure that your worm is accompanied with a five or six size hook.
Perhaps one of the best bass fishing tips I ever received was to make sure that you get a good solid hooks set. Most people are worried about the water temperature, and everything else. Although those are all very important to catching big bass, if you don’t set the hook good and solid you won’t catch the fish anyways.
