Her are some tips on how to locate and catch largemouth bass. Tubes although bought in a bag, can get rather smelly, even when you’ve taken them out of the bag. This is also true for worms as well. The best thing to do here is to open the packets and re-pack your worms and tubes into re-sealable food bags. Re-packing your baits in this way will keep them fresh.
With some hard baits like crank baits, jerk baits or top waters, the fish can sometimes slip the hooks. There is a solution to this, which will more or less eliminate the risk of this happening. The trick is to put a split ring between the hook and the ring that is already attached to the bait.
Always remember that when the fishing is slow, make subtle changes to the way that you are fishing, this will sometimes pay dividends. I recommend trying several different baits at 30 minute intervals. Also try different positions around the lake. Don’t get stuck in your favourite position, fish like to move around, so you should too.
Lake maps are a good way to plan your day. By studying a lake map you stand a better chance of locating the predatory fish and you don’t want to miss out on that excellent fishing spot because you didn’t study a lake map. You should also consider the weather and time of year. Bass fishing can often be slower in cold weather.
Watch the weather forecasts, take notice of the water level in the lake and make notes, they will come in handy later on. If you have a computer you can download the weather forecasts, wind strength and direction, etc.
Don’t just stick to your plan, be flexible. If your original plan is not producing fish, change something, follow your instincts.
Sometimes Largemouth Bass can be lazy when going for the fish. If you see fish stopping short of your offering, then change it quickly and try again. This often happens when smaller fish are interested in your bait but it’s a little on the large side. Often a smaller offering will produce results.
Well we hope our largemouth bass fishing tips prove useful and maybe help you catch that trophy bass
