Using Jigs To Catch Bass

When properly using a jig to fish you are more likely to catch bigger bass fish, especially when fishing in an area with rocky bottoms, thick weed, sunken tree tops or any kind of heavy cover. Jig lures are to be used in slow, constant movements. Also known as a contact lure. Normally when catching a bass fish it is within 15 feet of the moving lure. Not only is having a nice jig going to help catch the biggest bass but also using the right reel. Spinning reels are great to use for bass fishing because they have a nicely balanced body from the end of the spool to the rear of the actual reel. They are also lightweight, which is perfect for all day fishing.

Tis, the season for prespawn fishing, prespawn fishing starts when water temperatures are around fifty to sixty degrees.  So grab your Shimano or Daiwa and head to your favorite largemouth bass fishing hole.

Largemouth bass tend to be near rock piles, ledges and fallen trees that are close to shallow water.  Fish with bait that is dark colored and looks natural.  Worms, crawdads and dark color jigs are the winner.  Last but not least make sure to use at least a ten pound line so you don’t lose your prize.

Perhaps the most sought after game fish in the world is the bonefish. These critters are unique in that they amphidormous, meaning that they migrate from inshore tropical waters to shallow mudflats, and back. This type of fly game fish is found in tropical regions like Hawaii, the Bahamas, and the Florida Keys. Typically, the fish are not eaten, although they are considered a delicacy in Hawaii.

Bonefish get spooked easily and are quite large. This means if you do hook one it will give you quite a fight. You and your party are going to need quality fly fishing reels to get the job done. If you’re an angler looking for a fishing challenge, then you should definitely try your hand at bonefishing.

Tips to Practice Baitcasting

Learning to use a new baitcasting reel can be fun. So let’s begin with some basic tips. Only fill the spool halfway with a test line of 14 to 20 pound test. Heavy line makes it easier to cast.

To get the best cast out of your reel, you will need to learn how to place the right amount of pressure from your thumb on the spool. To practice this technique, do the following: loosen the spool control until the weight drops freely, and then use your thumb to stop it before it hits the ground. The more you practice the better your cast becomes.
