The techniques that you should know in Bass fishing
the-dog: This is one of the angling techniques that demand time and concerted
efforts to master. As this technique is quite effective, beginners also
should try their hands on it. The strategy involved in this is - casting
over a relatively long distance, allow the bait to be perched for a brief
period of time, take up the slack, give it a jerk to one of the sides
with your rod tip pointing towards water, then immediately move it backward
and remove the slack, if any, by reeling in, then jerk again, and repeat
all the way back.
The darting movement from side-to-side, in effect simulates the prey?s
elusive movements, thereby luring the bass hunter to follow, stalk and
pounce! This might be your ace up your sleeve for catching the big Bass

Slip-bobbers, when rigged with a ¬ ounce plastic jig and with live bait such as night-crawler or minnow, secured to the sharpened hook tip will also come very handy in catching a good number of Bass.
Slight shaking, jiggling and presenting such things close to any emerging weeds or brush, underwater logs, trees, stumps or cover, may prove successful. You should bear in mind that fish will be constantly moving while feeding. During your angling process, you should consider the amount of sunlight, temperature of the water, the time of the day and other related things for reaping a good harvest.
Bobber-rigs or jigs are one of the most popular one that always ends up in success. Carolina-rig (drop-shot rig) and Slip-sinkers are also proven one to have a high degree of success. In shallow waters, you may resort to free-line fishing and you can have lot of Bass, much to your heart?s content. You can also cast a plain hook with a live bait on it and allowing it to have a natural swim ? this will certainly grasp the bass? attention and draw them towards the hook.
Many angling experts suggest you to have heavier tools if your fishing area happens to be a watery salad, or heavy slop, or with weeds, or with heavy vegetative cover, has got underwater vegetation. A 20 pound line is the minimum required and a sturdy bait-casting rod with heavy action combined with matching reels, long and straight handles can provide an edge over others in getting a Bass bounty, especially a bigger Bass!
Another useful combination is having a floating jig-heads, with slip-sinker rig, with 2-3 foot leader, especially when kept close to the bottom, ensuring not to get snagged in the process. Weed-less hooks can help you retrieve live-bait and/or that hooked fish, through very thick underbrush.
If you can correctly understand what bass actually eat, where and when, the knowledge will certainly help you in choosing and presenting the most effective, appropriate and tempting bait ? be it live or artificial. Keeping your baits and lures in close resemblance (such as appearance, strategy and tactics) to that of the Bass? natural diet can end up with more success eventually.
Instinctively, the predator Bass will look for certain familiar movement, colours and certain shapes when go for feeding. Crawfish and plastic worms are most sought after feed by Bass. The Bass is known for its fighting tendency, hitting hard on the baits, biting major chunk of bait and pulling habits, its notorious behaviour and hence the reason for its popularity in fishing circle. The Bass will never give up without a fight and Bass fishing is like a game.
Artificial baits such as spoons or spinners are specifically designed for the purpose of teasing the fish. Artificial baits provoke the Bass and the tempted Bass will put a strike eventually. These baits also provoke the inborn instincts of the Bass towards feed and improve your chances of getting a good catch.
such as color, rotation, skirts, fluttering action (Lil? hustler spoiler
is a favorite of many bass anglers) all work together in simulating the
movement of live prey. Spoons are good in simulating fish like movement
in the water, which when trolled behind boats, they are typically very
effective and can also be cast and retrieved.
