Know the secrets and the mistake you make in bass fishing
Now you might
have come to a conclusion that Bass fishing does have a lot more than
what you have seen or heard. Now you are familiar with the species, different
kinds of water, aware of availability of angling equipment and accessories
with a varied level of sophistication, and are familiar with the Bass?
life cycle such as habits, patterns, preference, behaviour, natural diet,
preferred food, etc.
Bass fishing is a competitive science by itself and there are always more to explore at any given point of time. Before winding up, let us learn about certain common casting mistakes that are used in angling.
The common mistakes are dealt in detail for you to know and avoid repeating in your angling experience. Read and understand them to optimize and maximise your bass experience. Here are but a few issues that are mostly confronted by beginners initially:
* Overshooting the lure with more power in your initial casting ? resulting in faster release of line
* Your lure falling short of your target, the reason being light lure weight, or due to release of line too early during the casting, or due to your holding the rod too high after the release of line
* Lures landing too hard, the reason being release with insufficient high angle and absence of proper arching in air during release
* The most common issue being missing the mark due to inaccurate casting - here the lure goes off-course due to the lateral movement of the rod at the time of casting
To overcome these issues, practice reel and line control, with overhead casting.
The correct type of casting is compared with the position of hands in a clock at the time two o?clock and twelve o?clock. Many people have vouched for this type of visualisation and many texts (like the Dorling Encyclopedia mentioned earlier, pg. 212-213) also suggest the same. In the visualisation, imagine the position of hands in a clock both at two o?clock and twelve o?clock.
movement should match with the movement of the clock hand starting from
two o?clock, pushing back to twelve o?clock and back to two o?clock again.
During the movement, the rod can slightly be lowered as the lure drops
deeper into the water. For most beginners this ?visualization? often helps
to refine their technique.
