If you have never gone fishing at night, then plan this trip around a full moon. Also take a friend with you and bring two flashlights. Things look different in the dark and hopefully you won’t get lost finding your favorite fishing hole.
Night fishing works best when water temperatures get above sixty five degrees. Bass tend to hand around shallow shorelines, boat docks, and rock banks. Bring your favorite baitcasting reel with a heavy line. For bait, try using black spinner bait and black jitter bugs. Happy 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.
There are many methods of fishing including the old drop and wait, trolling from a boat, casting and retrieving and fishing with a jerkbait. Several things must be taken into consideration when using jerkbaits with the most important being that the water should be fairly clear. When fishing for bass with a jerkbait, the bait must simulate the fish’s food preference and the action of the bait will trigger a bite reflex.
There are two types of jerkbait, hard and soft and the main difference between the two are the hooks. Hard jerkbaits have treble hooks and tend to lose fish in very heavy cover. The soft jerkbaits use a single worm hook, they are pliable and therefore tend not to hang up in weeds. A baitcaster reel is preferred and the rod action used, whether long or short, should be kept constant so the fish can time their strike.
It may not sound all that great but “soft sticks” are about as good a lure as you can get, especially in the hands of a skilled fisherman. Soft sticks are just another term for bait such as centipedes, flukes and Senkos. You have two types of soft sticks, jerk baits and fry worms. Jerk baits are called that simply because they mimic the name. The go from a dead stick to jerking in the water. Fry worms look like a french fry. The great things about all types of these baits are the fact they come in different colors (we have to keep the women happy). Baitcaster reels love these types of lures because they can work together very well with minimal friction towards each other. In other words, one compliments the other.
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.
Buzzbait is the best topwater lure around because of all its advantages. This lure can be used with a baitcaster, spincaster, or spinning reel. Buzzbait can be used in windy or calm conditions and comes in a variety of colors and sizes.
Buzzbait is a lure that can even be used by the beginning fisherman. This lure is easy to use and can be used around docks, open water and bank fishing. Once the lure has been cast out, reel it in, as sson as it hits the water. This lure makes a noise on the surface of the water which in turn attracts bass, muski, crappie and even blue gill.

Bass fishing can be a fun and relaxing way to pass a lazy afternoon with your Citrix Low Profile Baitcaster Reel. Why not try night crawlers for a change?
What You’ll Need:
1. Fishing Line
2. Fishing Hook
4. Bait (night crawler)
5. And of course.. a fishing rod!
How to tie the rig:
1. Tie the sinker above the hook (distance depends on water depth and flow) before you tie the hook.
2. Now, use whatever strong knot you know to attach the hook at the end of the line.
3. It’s time for the night crawler!
Hook the night crawler about one inch from the head end and slide it all the way to the top of the hook. Next, put the hook through the body again about an inch further down. Let the rest of the worm body dangle so it creates some movement in the water. That’s it! You just made a night crawler rig for bass fishing.
The season to fish for spoonbill is at hand, but beware it’s not legal in every state to fish for a spoonbill. Spoonbill fishing can be addictive because of how this fish is caught. The only way to catch a spoonbill is to snag them.
Snagging is done by dragging a 10/0 -12/0 barbless treble hook with a five to sixteen ounce weight using either man power or boat power (trolling). Be sure to use a 10 – 12 foot stout surf rod with your favorite baitcasting reel. Last but not least, the weight of your line should be at least 60 pounds. When one sees the tip of your rod start to bend, start to reel and hang on for the fight.
