Three Tips For Bass Fishing With Worms

Rig the Worm Correctly – This is very important. Many inexperienced anglers will just slap the worm on the hook any way thinking that it doesn’t really matter but it does. It’s important that you present the worm correctly or the bass will ignore it. In order to do this, you need to have it on the hook the right way where it can still look natural when in the water. This rule applies to both live and artificial worms.

Here’s an added bonus that can also help you reel in more fish when using worms. It’s a good idea to use light gear. Use ultra-light to light rods and reels combined with test line under six pounds for the best results. This will help you present the worm in a more natural way and it will be easier to tell when the bass takes the bait.

It’s recommended that you purchase a variety of artificial lures. You will find that there are many different sizes, designs and colors to choose from.

Collecting a number of different ones will increase your options when you go bass fishing. After collecting a number of different artificial worms, you’ll discover that some of them are more difficult to use than others. For this reason, you’ll need to try different ones and experiment to learn how to use them correctly. Trying out different ones each time you go bass fishing will also help you discover which ones work the best in different situations.

You will also want to match the size worm to the size fish that you plan on seeking out. The large bass will strike at small worms if there is nothing else available but you will have better luck if you use the larger worms when trying to catch the larger fish. These may seem like simple tips but sometimes the simplest things can make the most difference. Try using these tips the next time you go bass fishing with worms and you are sure to have a more fun and productive bass fishing trip.
