Where To Catch Largemouth Bass

Anglers can find largemouth bass in almost all freshwater areas but can spend hours without catching anything if they don’t know where to throw their lure. So one of the top bass fishing tips is to look for cover on the surface that bass would be hiding under.

Cover holding fish can come in many different forms, including grass, lily pads, rocks, wood, boat docks, and more.

Largemouth bass are ambush predators, so their go-to spots are often areas where they can conceal themselves to ambush prey easily and for protection from bigger predators.

Looking for a good spot with coverage is the best way to find bass rather than waiting until you spot one roaming the open water or casting blindly for hours in random places.

Lures And Baits To Catch Bass

When choosing which bait or lure to use, the best decision a bass angler can make is to match the local baitfish.

Bass have a broad diet that can range from bluegill and shad to bugs and baby ducks. Therefore, it’s essential to make sure your lure imitates what the bass could be eating naturally, which will likely change throughout the seasons and locations.

For instance, if the local bass are feeding on shad, the angler should throw a silver swimbait or crankbait.

Understand Conditions When Bass Fishing

Sun, wind, and water temperature can all significantly affect an angler getting a bite. Therefore, getting to know how the bass may behave under different conditions is critical to being a consistent bass fisherman.

Sun

Largemouth bass tend to be more active and visible on cloudy days. Professional anglers suggest using moving baits such as chatter baits, spinnerbaits, and topwater plugs to hook an active bass on overcast days.

On sunny days, largemouth bass tend to hide undercover and wait for baitfish to come to them. The best fishing tips for these kinds of days involve using a bottom bouncing bait such as a Texas-rigged soft plastic or a jig. Then, flip and pitch your lure to the base of the cover to catch bass waiting there to strike the passing bait.

Wind

Windy days are known to cause largemouth bass to become extra active. Another reason some wind is good is it disturbs the water surface making it less likely for an angler to spook the nearby bass. Unless the wind is excessive and gets dangerous, try to cast a moving bait into the wind to possibly hook your next trophy.

Water Temperature

Water temps can vary drastically in different locations and affect the feeding patterns and activity levels of the local bass. There are many techniques and tricks to catch largemouth bass in different temperatures. Still, the general rule is that it’s best to use slower moving baits in the cooler water temps and faster lures in warmer water conditions.

Other Bass Fishing Tips

Practice One Knot

Any professional bass angler will tell you knots are essential, and one of the worst feelings is losing a fish because of a bad knot. The best advice, especially for beginners, is to learn one versatile knot and practice until its second nature. Become familiar with a simple knot such as the Clinch knot or Palomar knot that can be used for all bass fishing adventures. There are numerous videos and diagrams online to help get familiar with these and other types of knots.

Do Some Research 

Technology should be a modern angler’s best friend as it has revolutionized the way one would approach a new location. Technology dramatically makes it easier for anglers to fish anywhere in the world and learn a new fishing spot. Take advantage of google earth and other platforms to understand the features in the area you are looking to fish. Identify the areas that may be holding bass, such as points, ledges, creeks, and other covers. Researching ahead of time can help you plan your day of fishing. You may even be able to find what the local forage is looking like to know which lure to start with; however, it’s still best to bring different options with you and check it out on your fishing day, as conditions can always change.

Be Open-Minded

Many anglers will benefit from experiencing different fisheries and learning the different habits and factors that come to play. Become a well-rounded angler by practicing new techniques, becoming familiar with various conditions, and experimenting with other lures based on the local area.

Fish different ponds, creeks, and lakes than your home waters to become familiar with varying clarities of water and depths. For example, if you usually catch bass in dark waters, try getting a bite in clear water.

Be Persistent

The game of bass fishing is not always easy, and there will be days when the bite is tough. The best option on days like this is to thoroughly fish an area you’re confident in rather than hopping from spot to spot too fast. Be confident in the baits or artificial lures you are using and thoroughly fish an area you believe could be holding fish.
