Tactics of Bass Fishing On Lake Fork in Texas

Bass very seldom stay out in the open but they do travel certain routes on a regular basis. If you know the area well enough to know the route of the bass then you can fish these routes with a lot of success. By taking advantage of all these locations you will have more bites and more opportunities to reel in the bass.

Presenting Your Bait

The way you present your bait will make a difference in how many bass you can catch. You need to get the bait close to the areas where the bass are located without scaring the fish away. Otherwise, they will take off and you will have to start all over again. It is a good idea to cast your bait past where the bass are located and pull the bait across them to get their attention.

The retrieve process is very important. You need to watch your speed to make sure you are not reeling in the line to fast or the bass will just watch it go by. You need to make the bait look realistic and attractive to the bass. It may take some practice to learn what the right speed is so start with what feels comfortable to you and then adjust it slower or faster until the bass starts biting.

You can enlist the help of fishing guides to show you where all the hot spots are located and to take you out on the lake if you are unfamiliar with the area.

This will help you have more success when bass fishing and prevent you from wasting a lot of time trying to locate the bass.
