Striped Bass Fishing

General Information for Striped Bass Fishing

One thing that most all anglers will agree on is that live bait is the best you can use when fishing for stripped bass. Some of the different types of live bait that you can use include worms, eels and herring. There are two main rules to remember when using live bait if you want to get the most from each of your fishing trips. One is to always keep it as fresh as possible. The best way to do this is by keeping a special cooler with you just for your bait. Keeping bait cool is especially important when fishing during the warm months.

The second thing to remember is to handle the bait as little as possible. The striped bass have a keen sense of smell and they will not take the bait if it doesn’t smell right. They will pick up your scent if you handle the bait a lot. You can wear gloves when handling the bait to help prevent your scent from being transferred.

The fishing line that you use is very important because you need it to be strong enough to pull in that big catch. It would be a shame to be reeling in the catch of a lifetime only to have your line break and lose it. You also want to make sure that the bait conceals the hook completely or the striped bass will avoid it altogether.

Being out on the water can be very beautiful and relaxing so you need to always be careful and pay attention to your surroundings. You don’t want to take any unnecessary chances with your life while trying to have a good time. Always be respectful to others and obey the rules and regulations of the area where you are fishing.
