It is just not true that bass fishing is like hunting any other type of fish. You don’t have to find out a thing about bass and just go for it, and that can make things interesting. That big bass you heard about will give you a lesson in what not to do, and the only thing about that is you may not know what mistakes you made. All fisherman would rather go home with a string of fish, and you can do that with bass if you really want to.
The young bass are born during the spring, and this is the yearly ritual you will observe when you’re fishing at that time. It’s quite common to see a mother bass hovering over her nest which is typically situated closer to the grounds, or the side of the water. This is where it all begins for the freshly hatched bass, but the mother will usually not leave the nest for bait. You can sometimes lure one and catch her, but be sure you release her back to the wild so she can continue nesting her young. Another favored bass game fish is the spotted bass, and it’s also called the spotted black bass, and this fish is very similar to the large mouth bass in many aspects. Even though different bass species share common qualities, they are different enough so that fisherman will appreciate them. As you can easily guess, they have black spots on them and they are smaller than the big mouth bass. There are many different types of water conditions where you will have good results, but this requires specific knowledge about them.
Later on you can start varying the rods you use because you’ll be able to fish more intelligently. As you know, the world of materials and composites have transformed so many things we do. A stiff rod will give you a hook set that is much quicker, but the trade-off here is that stiffer rods are less sensitive which makes sense. So you may have to experiment to be able to discover what you like and other preferences, etc.
There are many interesting aspects about bass fishing that are nice to know, and it will take time to accumulate that kind of information. You’ll also need a little education to complement having the right equipment. It’s always fun talking to experienced anglers because they can pass along some good stories. But just be sure you can separate fact from fiction as fishermen are notorious for telling whoppers.
