Bass Fishing Tips

Bass Fishing as we know it is a science. It's not simply tying a lure on your line, tossing it in the water and catching fish. There are many factors to take account such as water clarity, water temperature, humidity, color, speed of retrieve, and what lure to use. Many times when I see other people catching fish, I would ask what they used and what color. Often I would change to that since they have already established a pattern.

There are some however who would simply ignore the advice given and continue to fish how they want and what they want, yet they wonder why the people around them are catching fish after fish. Today was a prime example as to why you should listen to others who have already established the pattern

Today at the city (shitty) pond I call home, the regulars were all there. They told me that the night bite has been decent the past couple of nights and that dark color senkos and craws were producing fish. I was about ready to leave when they said 7:30 is the time they bite. I figured what the hell, I haven't fished in a while and it's so nice outside. I was throwing my new Flash J finesse lure and a Moebi Green Sasuteki Craw for no fish. As soon as the sun set, I changed to a Green Pumpkin/Blue Flake Sasuteki Craw. Within 4 casts I feel a thump and set the hook for a beautiful fish that splashed all over the place. I grabbed the fish, took the picture and weighed it.

I checked my phone for the time, and it was 7:35! Just like what they said! Moral of the story:
Don't be stubborn, listen to advice!"
