Master one versatile lure
2.The lure you choose should complement your personality. A spinnerbait is a good choice for aggressive anglers. Meticulous casters tend to adopt Texas-rigged worms or jigs. Although some accomplished bass fishermen choose crankbaits, jerkbaits, and even topwater plugs as their fishing lure counterparts, you'll have better results if your chosen lure can cover water from the shallows to the depths. Whatever lure you select, decipher its every nuance to increase its effectiveness. Become reasonably competent with an assortment of baits.
3Your basic tool selection should fit into a small tackle box. It could include spinnerbaits, shallow- to deep-running crankbaits, plastic worms, topwater lures, jerkbaits, weedless jigs and jig trailers, jigging spoons, and a soft weedless frog or rat-one for every type of bass habitat. When your confidence bait fails, these lures offer other paths to success. Be leery of expanding your basic selection; too many lures dilute proficiency. Break the habit of fishing the same spots. Stick with basic colors **
** 4When, say, a purple plastic worm fails to draw strikes, a pumpkinseed worm isn't likely to turn things around. Instead, switch to a different lure, or try another location. Dramatic changes beget dramatic results. Once you start catching bass, you may find color swapping beneficial.
