Fishing Tips: Bass Fishing

Will most common types of fishing is bass fishing. Bass can be found in ponds, lakes, streams, and reservoirs. In this article we will talk about a few fishing tips in understanding the conditions in places where bass are likely to be found. There are three main elements that must be present in the water for bass to survive. These three are food, oxygen, and cover. These variables can change including the water conditions, the water levels, the weather, and the food available for them.

Bass primarily feed on crawfish. These are easier for them to catch and are generally more available where bass are at.

However they could eat anything including mice, frogs, worms, salamanders, insects, leeches, and much more. Because they feed on such a wide variety of food it’s much easier to find them which are why people enjoy bass fishing so much.

A basic rule of thumb to follow it is that the cooler the water the more oxygen available. Oxygen is a major thing for finding bass fish. So if you’re fishing in the spring, summer, or early fall you will find larger bass will go lower where it is cooler and more oxygen filled water.

They will also go to areas that are concentrated in vegetation to find more oxygen as well. Oxygen can be found in plants, trees, stumps, and so on, which is a good place to find bass fish.

Cover is another important element of protection for bass. Since they are a fairly lazy fish they wait for their food come to them.

An interesting fact is bass do not have eyelids so they use cover to protect blindness. You can also find bass in covered areas such as fence rows pilings, docks, pieces of wood or decaying wood. You can even find bass in weeds or under rocks if they’re looking for additional cover.

Everyone has their own opinion on what is the best way to fish and bass fishing is no different. It is been proven that certain lures and baits such as Tequila 7 inch worms with an added scent work well for catching bass. For light bait Hellgrammites are particularly effective.

One final fishing tip we want to offer on bass fishing is bass are particularly lazy. You are going to have to go after them if you expect to catch them. You can have your bait no more than 10 yards from a bass and they will not swim to get it.

These are few fishing tips as it pertains to bass fishing. You will have to work at it and create your own luck if you expect to be successful catching bass fish.

Lessons that Fishing Can Teach And You Can Apply In Your Life

There are a few unique lessons you pick up as you practice the way of the fisherman that become so deeply ingrained in your soul that whatever may happen they will always be with you and as such you will be applying them in your everyday existence.

These types of abilities are generally acquired steadily right up until they grow into an essential element of your way of looking at life. They become second nature to you and are in effect your guiding values. Each one of these had to be learned and practiced as you fished, and as you have lived.
Being Patient.
One of the first things that a fisherman has to contend with is frustration. The antidote is patience. The need for patience goes hand in hand with fishing and must grow into a skill. You will find many different types of days when fishing. You will have excellent times and lousy days, and yet each one of these requires a little bit of patience and sometimes more than just a little. Sounds like life and in life as in fishing patience delivers benefits (as well as much less tension).
Will Power.
There is a time when trees and under water obstacles seem to take up much more of your efforts than the actual fishing. As long as you keep your mind set on your goal, and have the will power to continue even when things are going wrong, you will succeed. Then suddenly a day will come when not only do you catch an odd fish, but you begin to catch more and more. This is a direct result of having the will to continue. In life something decidedly similar happens.
Being Prepared.
On a few occasions a fisherman will be so impatient to rush out and catch something that he won’t check his equipment and when the moment arrives he finds either the line all tangled up, or with out his lures or any of a hundred things that can happen to his gear, has happened. Be prepared and check your gear. In life, both business and personal, being prepared or anticipating your and others needs will be of great benefit to you.
Being Observant.
Lift your head up, look around. Stop and watch your surroundings. There, next to that boulder by the tree, there is a small pool and if you watch closely you will see a swarm of very small flies, and beneath that you will see, for a split second, a flash of silver. You can then place a small fly on your taper and go for that spot. You will find there is  a remarkable difference between looking and observing. You can look at something without being aware but when you are in an observant mode it isn’t simply your vision that is engaged, all of your sensory faculties and your brain get involved. Any time you are fishing feel the brief and hardly noticeable changes in the air, in the water and around you. If you can conquer this skill and apply it at other times you will not only have an advantage over the majority of people, but will also find your life to be much fuller.
To recap: Being patient, applying your will power, being prepared and observant, these are skills that will stand you in good stead wherever you are. Fishing hones these skills for you until they become second nature.

Fishing With Red Worms

One of the best baits for fishing is the red worm and in this article I'm going to provide some tips for fishing with red worms that will make you a much more effective angler. I was introducing to the red worm by my fishing mentor in central Pennsylvania. Before being introduced to red worms I always used night crawlers for fishing. My mentor enlightened me to the fact that these worms can be much better bait than night crawlers for fishing, especially in certain situations.

This type of worm is much smaller than their night crawling cousins, which many times have to be pinched in half to use effectively as fishing bait. At the end of the day a red worm look just like a baby night crawler and is much more effective as fishing bait, especially when fishing in rivers and streams.

When fishing with red worms it's important to use gang hooks to rig them effectively. This way your red worms can be presented outstretched, they way God intended. Gang hooks are a pair of small hooks tied in tandem, and when fishing with red worm's size 8 or 10 gang hooks should always be used. Truth be told, with red worms size 10 should usually be employed. Size 10 hooks are small enough to be hidden by the worms body yet are not detectable to the fish. If you think size 10 hooks are too small to catch large fish, consider the fact that I personally hook and land 3-5 pound trout and smallmouth bass on size 10 gang hooks.

Fishing with red worms obviously also involves carrying your worms with you, and having an effective way to accomplish this task is also important. Having an effective way to carry your red worms is especially important to the river / stream angler. Just throwing the Styrofoam container in your fishing vest will work, but having an effective red worm carrier is a big plus.

An effective worm carrier keeps your worms within easy reach, while still keeping your hands free for fishing. This way your worms are always at your fingertips and you know exactly where they are at all times. The most effective worm carrier that I've ever come across is the JRW bait bag. This is simply a small pouch that clips to your fishing vest, shirt, or pants and carries your live worms while fishing. The use of a bait bag is a must for anyone that's fishing with red worms.

My favorite place to use red worms for fishing is in the flowing waters of rivers and / or streams. Allowed a red worm to flow naturally with the current, as it rolls along the bottom, is an extremely effective fishing technique. This technique is effective for trout, bass, and walleye. Heck, it's effective for any fish that swims in the current of your favorite river or stream. The bottom line is that fishing with these worms can be much more effective than fishing with other worm species.

How to Make Homemade Carp Baits Using Superior High Protein Ingredients!

Protein has always seemed to be part of the key in carp bait success, but there is much confusion about which ingredients to use! The how and why of using whole and treated proteins to create world-class pre-digested, probiotic and prebiotic active homemade baits is absolutely vital to understand as much as possible to truly maximise your results! Read on and transform your catches right now!

Anglers have used protein as the basis of their baits ever since Isaac Walton using rabbit meat. The high protein milk protein bait cult of the seventies and early eighties only led more and more people to seriously think that whole proteins such as caseins were vital to big carp success. But there is far more to protein baits than using whole proteins!

In the earlier years of carp fishing for instance in the seventies when I began carp fishing, we used very simple seeming yet complex baits for carp called ‘specials’ which were paste baits made predominantly and ironically enough, from many of the most often used bait ingredients today. The biggest difference in bait recipes back then was that most anglers used water in their baits. But then more and more people used eggs to bind their special pastes together as this relatively insoluble material made paste baits more durable and longer-lasting against pest fish.

Then the idea of heating paste baits really took off and instead of using paste baits which were normally anything from golf ball sized to even as big as an orange, the size of baits were dramatically reduced to usually under 25 millimeters in diameter. At the stage of using eggs and boiling baits, carp baits became known as ‘boilies’. At this stage and around this time many developments were manifesting which all led to huge breakthroughs in catching far more carp compared to simply doing things by more haphazard means. Carp fishing became far more methodical as more and more anglers did more and more methodical testing and research.

The milk protein approach of Fred Wilton spread far and wide and anglers found that using milk proteins such as soluble caseins to bind their baits meant that their baits were super-resilient against pest species and instead of using pastes and re-casting every 30 minutes, anglers were able to cast out and fish overnight knowing their baits would be usually intact if not taken by morning.

But the boiling of baits and the coagulating of globulin proteins in special pastes meant that the most vital parts of baits got locked up as they were made drastically less soluble, this defeating the primary action of baits I.e. to become solution and produce a very significant concentration gradient of feeding triggers, attractants etc in the water column!

The key to bait success is in the actual size of the molecules or bits of information that carp detect and respond to chemically and bio-chemically in different ways and in the ways that water reacts with such fine aspects of your bait in action. Baits work in solution. This is of paramount importance to understand. And this is the only way that carp can detect your baits other than at close proximity by vision or by audible means, or by subtle electrical means.

But chemically, carp detect the commonest substances found to be stimulatory to feeding responses by the interaction of the very fine parts of molecules interacting with proteins and ion channel surface ligands for instance in the olfactory system, where for instance a blend of amino acids in solution will activate the receptor in such a way to send signals to the brain of the carp in the appropriate area that triggers motion and feeding responses causing fish to seek the source of the dissolved substances they are experiencing.

They do this to determine if a stimulus is an opportunity or threat; carp baits can be both! Your purpose in creating baits is not to create a food source but to supply an incredibly potent true feeding stimulus which may indeed have beneficial factors for the fish, but primarily will ultimately get your hook into the mouths of fish (without satiating them!)

To supply a source of stimulation in enhanced ways truly maximised and optimised internally and externally is a fine art and takes testing and experience of levels combinations and so on, of ingredients, additives, enhancers, processes and so on. There are easy short-cuts however. Modern anglers seem to want ever faster short-cuts in the form of products off the shelf. But using these simply leaves the angler in the power of bait companies and their pricing policies and at the whim of ever changing fashions!

Originally high protein carp baits based around soluble milk proteins and hardened by soluble whey and caseins etc and bound with eggs were really thought of as the pinnacle of carp bait design. Anglers not using such high protein baits were actually not respected and regarded as ignorant! But it eventually transpired that the nutritional theories which led to the high protein bait revolution had many holes. For instance carp have only a limited capacity to digest and assimilate milk proteins beyond a certain point. Satiation is a major problem in using high protein boilies. How many eggs can you eat at any one time?

In fact in the early years of the original milk protein baits they were often simply pastes mixed with water which perhaps lasted half an hour on the hook. And in those days soft pastes where of course favourable because you could strike your hook point clear of a soft bait far more easily than if baits were hard! The use of all sorts of ingredients which bound baits up but made them hard really were in some ways more of an issue when boilies came along when the trend was to make very hard resilient baits.

One idea using baits high in caseins for instance was that carp would have to such much harder to take hook baits into the mouth and there would be a higher possibility of hooking fish this way using rock hard baits. This was of course in a context of the time, when far more baits were much softer and in paste form still.

These days the situation is reversed. The wary fish are far more easily caught on soft baits than smooth-surfaced machine-rolled hard boiled or steamed baits! Carp can easily sort the density and movement characteristics and other features and so on of hard baits even without touching them with their lips. They can waft then, fan them, even roll their flanks on them or lift them or fan them using fins. Carp can easily determine if a bait is suspiciously buoyant or too heavy due to weight of a hook, or if it is tethered in some way!

Most baits that get taken in the mouth which result in a hook up have been in and out of many mouths without those fish running, because so many fish simply spit hooks out without moving an inch from the position of sucking a bait in! Part of the way to defeat such fish is to leave boiled baits in lake water for 24 hours so that micro-organisms get to work breaking down the proteins in the bait, just as they would with free baits being put out and left for 24 hours on the lake bed.

Generally speaking most anglers are just too impatient to leave their hook baits out for 2 days. Therefore fish have been trained by anglers into the association that washed out baits are usually safe to consume!

But the interesting point here is that carp have also been conditioned to consume washed out baits because in fact these baits are more energy-efficient to consume compared to fresh baits! Baits are not strictly about food but are absolutely about stimulating true feeding responses!

You can have a really nutritionally-stimulating so-called food bait which carp are simply not willing to feed on because either they associate aspects of it with danger. Or carp may have simply been fed too much of it so they do not require the nutrition that standard methods of formulation and processing of readymade or homemade food baits supply!

There are very many situations on lakes where so many similar food baits have been used that the fish are predominantly too wary to feed on fresh food baits and really only feed on them with confidence once such baits have been on the lake bed for a considerable time. I mean enough time for microorganisms such as anaerobic bacteria to break down the more energy-draining aspects, the proteins down into free form amino acids, organic acids etc.

This energy short-cut of digestion is a crucial cornerstone of carp bait success. It is the difference between feeding fish and satiating them and creating a situation where your free baits are harnessed in real time induce the maximum number of takes possible. It is the difference between making very high protein milk protein boilies and fishing them fresh against such baits which have been partially pre-digested and cured. The difference in bait performance and catch results is enormous!

A number of anglers use monosodium glutamate as a taste enhancer in their baits. Basically this is an artificial salt form glutamate discovered by Karl Henrich Ritthausen by treating wheat gluten with sulphuric acid. Wheat gluten is a basic binder used in special paste baits before and around the time that eggs were first used by growing numbers of carp anglers to bind their baits.

Wheat gluten is an excellent binder but is not particularly digestible to carp and it locks up bait ingredients in a relatively insoluble matrix unfavourably (as do liquid and powdered egg also.) There are a number of superior materials to exploit instead of these!

Personally I avoid using eggs in any form as these lock up baits far too much. As wheat gluten is far less used these days it actually forms a valuable part of your bait making arsenal in binding baits without eggs. I personally prefer other materials but the reason I use wheat gluten here as an example is for the fact that the salt form of an amino acid, glutamic acid, has been acid-hydrolysed or split, from the whole protein, into the free form amino acid. This form of split protein, the amino acids and broken peptide linkages are the forms which carp readily detect even in relatively low concentrations! (Glutamic acid is a perfect example of a true feeding trigger!)

All proteins that you will use in your carp baits contain glutamic acid. And you can split or pre-digest or enzyme-treat or use hydrolysed forms of proteins to compose your baits and stimulate feeding by their high concentrations, and avoid the use of MSG which actually causes micro-bleeding at brain receptor sites (as does aspartame and aspartame-based artificial sweeteners such as Splenda!)

In order to make your food baits superior you need to split your protein ingredients as much as possible into their free form amino acids so you create a very significant excess of them in your baits. This aspect of your protein in your baits is what leaches out and stimulates true feeding!

Two of the most significant and superior carp bait ingredients are calcium caseinate (soluble casein) and enzyme-treated fish protein. There are many other hydrolysed, enzyme-treated materials that can be exploited, including keramine, hydrolysed keratine, enzyme-treated liver powder, and concentrated yeasts.

Some of the most used materials which are split using acids in the food industry to drastically improve flavour, taste, palatability and consumption are maize, rice, wheat, rapeseed, and various pulses (including soya.) Use this fact to stimulate your mind to consider possibilities of how to split aspects of your baits to seriously improve the feeding stimulation of your baits (beyond mere ‘food bait’ digestibility factors!)

Feeding stimulation always must come first! Your baits must generate as many bites as possible as fast as possible in real time; that is vitally important to understand and to optimise and maximise in as many unique ways as you can!

Summer Crappie Catching: Catch a Big Batch of Crappie!

Old School Crappie Fishing Family Secrets

Summer Crappie Fishing

In Many areas of the country the department of natural resources will create fish attracting structure for anglers, they uses concrete blocks with re-bar and other misc. material. Both Artificial or natural structure is great for summer crappie fishing. This replicates the natural cover and it’s a great place to find fish. Use the following methods during the summer months to fish around artificially created structure, and natural cover.

Remember : Fish around any structure, man made or natural, Crappie absolutely love structure!

Step#1 Use about 100 ft of half-inch anchor rope and drop anchor (if you are in a boat) about 100ft from the structure you are going to fish around. You want the wind or current to push your boat towards the attractor.(If you are not in a boat , get an anchor rope, tie an anchor to it , and throw it out there… you will see why in a moment)

Step#2 You can use your normal summer crappie fishing rod and reel setup, and for bait you can use “grass shrimp”, if available or “Missouri minnows”. When baiting up, make sure most of the hook is hidden inside the grass shrimp.

Step#3 Tie a 1/2″ long bass sinker to the end of your fishing line.

Step#4 Tie a number 4 Aberdeen gold hook about 6 inches above the sinker at the end of the line. Bait this hook with (2) grass shrimp, or (2) Missouri minnows.

Step#5 If you are in a boat, drop another anchor to keep the boat from being blown all over the place.

Step#6 Cast your bait as close to the anchor line that you can without getting tangled. Start to reel your bait in very slowly, occasionally “pop” or jerk your bobber using your wrist.While you are reeling in try to stay as close to the anchor rope as you can. Make sure you continue to “pop” the bobber as you reel your line in.

You see, Crappies love to hide in the shadow that is created by the anchor rope. This method can be used when you go summer crappie fishing or spring crappie fishing where there is artificial or natural structure.

All You Need to Know About Fishing Tackle

The most basic piece of equipment required for fishing is fishing tackle. Fishing tackle is a generic term that refers to equipment such as lures, bait, lines, rods, reels, nets and trawls, downriggers, outriggers, gaffs, harpoons, clevises, floats, and traps.

The kind of fishing tackle that you will require depends on the kind of fish that you are angling to catch. It will also be dictated by your experience in fishing. A fishing tackle can be as simple as a soda can with fishing line attached to it, or a pole with a line tied to the end. These simple forms of fishing tackle are used to fish near the bank.

Advanced users may want to consider a rod and reel arrangement. This type of fishing tackle uses reels to store a large amount of line. This enables you to cast your line further. A rod and reel arrangement is essential for fishing in deeper waters and for tackling larger fish. There are many different types of fishing tackle that employ the rod and reel arrangement. The four basic kinds are: spin cast, spinning, bait cast, and fly casting. For more information, visit our website at

Spin cast

Spin cast fishing tackle is ideal for beginners as it is easy to use, after a bit of practice. A spin casting rod has a straight handle and line guides to prevent the line from running awry. The reel is mounted on top of the handle of the fishing rod. The fishing line comes out of a small hole in the cover of the reel. Spin casting is used to catch fish such as bluegill, crappie, and other pan fish.


Spinning fish tackle is so called because the casting reels spool spins as the line is cast out. The design is similar to spin casting fishing tackle except that the reel is usually mounted on the underside of the handle and the line is released by using the index finger. This sort of design takes a bit of practice, and is only recommended for more advanced users. The advantage of a spinning tackle is that it allows you to cast your line over a larger distance and lets you use a variety of fishing lines.

Bait casting

Bait casting is one of the most difficult forms of fishing tackle to use. As the line is controlled by your thumb, you have to put in many hours of practice to ensure that you can control the line properly. The advantage of bait casting is that it gives you an unbelievable amount of accuracy and control. In fact bait casting is the preferred method of fishing tackle for professional bass fishing.

Fly casting

Fly casting is regarded as the pinnacle of fishing tackle. This is the most difficult of all fishing tackles and requires a lot of practice and patience to master. The basic movement is similar to spin casting; however in fly casting, instead of relying on a weighted lure, the weight of the line itself carries the artificial fly to the fish. Fly casting allows you to cast your line with speed, accuracy, and gives maximum range. Fly fishing is a highly competitive sport and attracts thousands of enthusiasts every year.

How To Catch Sea Bass

Learning how to catch sea bass isn’t necessarily difficult, but for inexperienced angler, it can be a learning curve of sorts. The key aspect to remember is that you definitely will need some practice and you will need to be ready for a fight. But, best of all, sea bass are going to be a fantastic catch to write home about.

If you want to learn how to catch sea bass, there are some techniques that are sure to improve your chances. If you are surf fishing, there are a few tips that can help you catch big sea bass when others are hardly getting a bite.

The first thing to do is to determine what the natural forage in the area is for your target, in this case: Sea Bass. Soft shell crabs or clams are always a safe bet. If you are using crabs, crack the shell and thread your hook up through the crab.

If you are using clams, try salting them first. It will increase their appeal and make them stay on the hook a little better. Sometimes lures will work well for catching sea bass, but you really can not go wrong with whatever the natural forage in the area is.

If the sea bass are feeding on squid, just cut up strips of fresh or frozen squid and use that. The closer you are to what the sea bass are naturally feeding, the more likely it is that they will take the bait you offer

Use #10 test line. Monofiliment tends to tangle less, but a braided fishing line will allow the angler to actually feel better when a fish bites, so it is largely a trade off. Just experiment a bit and see which works best for you.

Sea bass really are pretty easy to catch if you remember that you are going to have to be patient. Even after you hook your fish, you are going to have to let it tire itself out, and bringing in even a single sea bass can sometimes take three or four hours.

Take your time, it may not (probably won’t) take that long. Yet, trying to force the situation will either hurt you, allow the first to get away or it could even mean you will be going overboard.

Now, another good tip on how to catch sea bass is to consider the time of year you will be fishing. Believe it or not, you will see a large difference in the ease of fishing (or not) depending on what time of the year you head out to fish.

Consider the tides before you plan a fishing expedition. You are going to want to fish above the more shallow areas, so it is best not to fish on either the new or full moons.

Choosing the right time of the year is important as well. If you are in the North Atlantic region, the best times will generally be from the beginning of May all the way until the end of the summer. South of there, the sea bass may be close to shore as early as February or March each year.

Fishing Tackle – Tackle for Different Fishing Environments

The definition of “fishing tackle” describes all the components used when fishing. This involves the fishing rode, the hook, the bait, the wire, the nets and anything else that can be used to fish. With fishing being a global sport, fishing tackle is a hot subject that generates millions of pounds in revenue every year.

The main elements of fishing tackle (as described above) is what every fisherman uses, ranging from beginners to professionals. Fishermen’s tackle only differs when different types of fishing is carried out. Saltwater deep sea fishing is obviously different to freshwater lake fishing. With Salt water deep sea fishing, larger poles are used with thicker, weighted lines in order to withstand the large fish where as in lake fishing for obvious reasons, smaller, thin lines are used as the fish are not as big.

With the development of new and improved fishing tackle I have found myself constantly diving deeper and deeper into my pockets. It is true to say that the tackle used is better; I have been able to catch more fish with it. However, the cost is becoming so high; I feel it is outweighing the balance of how much I want to spend in with the relation to how many fish I want to catch. With all these new “carbon fibre”  light weight rods that promise the chances of you catching fish I understand the rod is better, more light weight, but so is my wallet. This is why I have now turned to online shopping for my fishing tackle.

With so many varieties of fishing tackle, it is becoming harder for shops to stock everything. This is where the internet plays it part. By doing much research I have found that many fishing tackle shops have begun to sell their products online via websites. By selling online, these shops have now opened up to a global consumer market. It has been found that many fishing tackle shops that sell online have, on the whole, increased sales. With the increase in sales, and the increase in bulk buying from fishing tackle shops, one can see that there is a significant price difference when comparing online fishing tackle shops against local fishing tackle shops. This is why, in my opinion it is better to shop online for fishing tackle. The stock is much cheaper, with more variety and with so much competition online; sellers are constantly reducing their price. In some cases I have seen on websites monthly deal where you can purchase a top quality fishing reel for half price. By doing a little bit of online shopping, you can save a lot of money by buying your fishing tackle online.

So, as you can see, I am very much in favour of purchasing my fishing tackle online. It is cheaper and more efficient with a much larger variety of tackle to choose from. I hope you enjoyed reading my article and follow in my footsteps and shop online for your fishing tackle!
