Fishing for Bass

Updated on January 7, 2017

Summer Bass

By far Bass fishing has to be the most wide spread fish in the world ranging from Large Mouth Bass in North America and Japan, to Peacock Bass in South America, all the way to Rock and Small Mouth Bass in North America. You can never go wrong when going Bass fishing. It is a sport that has evolved with time with its original intent to feed our families in early time, all the way to present day where we can use Bass fishing as a way to get away from all the electronics or even a way to put a smile on a young child all the way to an elderly person. Fishing is for all ages, but only one is truly the greatest.

Finding that sweet spot

We have all heard of a honey hole for bass fishing. That one spot that everyone keeps a secret so they can have all the "good" fish to them selves. Typically these "honey holes" are stocked ponds that require a lot of maintenance to keep up. Little do people know is that these owners have these ponds stocked for other family members to come fish one or twice a year and are a great opportunity for someone to jump on. Stocked ponds require a certain amount of fish to be taken out every year and can easily bring you over a hundred pounds worth of fish for you to keep! Always talk to the owner about strict amounts of fish needed to be taken out, and the size and weight charts that they are given to regulate the fish.

Sometimes you have to get down right dirty and have a personal water craft to get into the good spots which are the less accessible spots.

Baits and Tackle

There are many types of baits and lures to choose from in this big world we live in. From top water frogs, to flashy jigs. One thing is for sure though, if you do not have the right bait for the matching season, weather, or time of day, you might just be out of luck. Below i will link a chart that i have found that works best in the more southern regions of the US.

Which season do you prefer fishing in?
