Tetae Kung

Bass Fishing is considered as a crowd puller and it is one of the popular sports activities in United States.Bass fishing tips come in quite handy especially when you are a beginner. First of all, it would be a good thing to know that bass are fish whose metabolism depends on the temperature of water. Their metabolism accelerates as the temperature gets higher. When in cold deeper waters, they are lethargy and need to eat less.

Moreover, around January those interested in bass fishing startto be directed to warmer and warmer waters as bass leave behind cold deep waters for environments more favorable to spawning. Also, during fall bass start to move towards colder and deeper waters where they would be better off during the cold season. Yet fishermen should not expect them to travel distances too rapidly. The migration cycles from one place to another follow the seasons and last for several months.

Also good to know when bass fishing is that these animals live in large groups. They tend to stick together in schools, especially the ones of the same size. Therefore, if you have already caught some bass, you are likely to catch more in the same area as long as you do not throw the dead caught fish in the water to panic the rest of the school.

In addition, bass fishing locations are not difficult to find. Bass prey on smaller fish, but they are not great hunters due to their slow motion features. They rather wait for the prey to come along and then strike. Sometimes, they feed on injured marine animals even though this kind of food might not be on their regular menu. They normally eat frogs craw-fish, worms, minnows insects and so on. For an experienced fisherman, knowledge of the eating habits and the mating peculiarities is no secret.

On the other hand, these fish are prey themselves therefore, in the normal habitat, there should be rocks and alls sorts of sea vegetation to provide them a safe retreat. That is why bass fishing is usually organized in those areas that provide camouflage for both fisherman and fish. The choice of bait also influences the success of a bass fishing
expedition. Thus, the seasons as well as the spawning cycle of the fish influence the choice of bait. Bass fishing is good using crank baits, spinner baits, stick baits and of course live shiners and worms. Hence, those new to bass fishing should pay attention to more experienced anglers to learn the basic steps.
