3 Baits To Lure Bass Fish – How To Catch The Big Bass
Bass fishing is the most popular of fishing sports across the world not only in the United States. However in the US, some of the most popular Bass fishing events are organized during the summer months and the best spots are always from Oregon all the way to Taxas. The tournaments and derbies will find anglers of all categories participating, from amateurs to professionals. It is important for the angler to know the behavior of the Bass and the kinds of lures that will attract it. It is also important to know the habitat of the fish and the way to tackle it.
A seasoned angler will know how to locate a bass from the temperature of the water and the surrounding habitat. Then judging by the food available in the surround water the angler will decide to use a different lure that resembles some bass food that is not available at the location. This is a sure way of luring the Bass to ‘bite’.
Lures change with the area that anglers fish in, the types of lures that are successful in luring the mighty Bass are listed here The various species of Bass that will successfully be lured to the following lures include; Both large as well as small mouth Bass, Spotted and Striped Bass, Peacock and White Bass.
1. Crank Bait: Irrespective of the depth that you intend to fish for bass in, Crank bait is a good lure to use for bass that choose to feed close to the surface of the water, in the mid region or very deep. These baits can be of both variety lipless or with a lip. These lures are shaped to look like minnows and attract the bass when they are ‘cranked’ or spooled back by the angler. This action is what gives the lure its name.
2. Swim Bait: As the name suggests this kind of bait resembles the swimming action of a minnow. The bait itself looks like a minnow with the body streamlined. The shape of the Swim bait allows the bait to duplicate the exact movement of live bait and is colored to match the other live bait available in the water. Swim Bait come with single hook fixtures, treble hook or a series of hooks.
3. Jerk Bait: This bait is also shaped like a minnow but weighs more than swim bait. The jerk bait is designed to return to the surface in a very irregular manner so as to resemble the actions of an injured fish that is the natural food of the Bass. It is a good lure to fool the Bass into attacking.
Many anglers prefer to use live bait such as earth worms, bees, flies and also pieces of fish that the bass is used to eating naturally. As you gain experience in Bass fishing techniques you will learn to make your own lures and also know which lure is best suited for the kind of bass you are angling for.
