Tennessee Bass Fishing

For this reason it is possible to lure or entice the bass to take your bait even when they are not really hungry. Of course, you will also get more bites when you are fishing during the regular feeding time for the bass but you can still have a lot of luck at other times as well.

The bass is naturally a greedy and protective creature, which means that they will often strike at anything that invades their territory. Basically, if it moves around them and they can fit it in their mouth, they will try to eat it. This is great news for the angler because it makes for much better and more exciting fishing than you will find with some of the other species.

Learning the habitat of the bass will help you know where to look for them so you can locate these fish faster and easier. They prefer clear non-flowing waters but they can be found in dark waters as well. They live in areas where aquatic vegetation and sufficient cover can be found such as brush, logs, fallen trees, stumps, docks and grassy areas.

The natural diet of the bass is determined by the size of the fish. The smaller young bass normally feed off of crayfish, shrimp and microscopic animals. As the bass begins to mature they will add insects and other smaller fish to their diet. An adult bass will eat anything that is available. This would include crabs, salamanders, small fish, frogs, crayfish, mice, turtles and snakes.

Bass are one of the most sought after species of fish in the world and for good reason. It has a lot to offer anyone that enjoys the sport of fishing and they are great to eat as well. One thing is for certain, if you love to bass fish, then you will love Tennessee because this state has many lakes loaded with bass of all sizes.
