Bass Fishing Training - Learn to Bass Fish

Most people don't start fishing to collect fishing lures. The same is true of boats, fish finders and tackle. This seems to be the main focus of most fishermen though. Finding fish should be your main focus, because once you're on them, all you need to do is fine tune your technique.

“This lure is deadly. All I've got to do is find time to get out fishing, and those fish are mine!” Sound about right? Mother Nature doesn't care if Saturday is your only day to fish. She also doesn't care if the lure you are using is wrong for your favorite spot.

Bass, luckily, can be caught on a great variety of lures. Some people like to fish more actively, and some like the “dead stick”. You may not be after the world record, but you can catch a dandy on simple gear. With an understanding of them, you can fish them the way that suits you. Learn more about bass biology

Matter of fact, they are probably looking for something to eat right now. Let's go find them! Here are some good largemouth fishing tips to get you started.
