Five Tips for April Bass Fishing

The bass is no doubt one of the most popular game fish around. Anyone can fish for bass regardless of their age, skill or residence. They’re a fun and exciting species that will put up one heck of a fight once hooked. Some bass can grow to some very impressive sizes as well. All of these things combined make them a very popular species and explains why there are so many bass tournaments all over the nation each year.

If you’re new to bass fishing you may eventually want to take advantage of some of these bass fishing tournaments or join a bass club in your area. Going out and fishing in April when the bass are so active will help you prepare for tournaments so you can get in on some of the action they have to offer.
April bass fishing is some of the best that you’ll ever encounter and it’s recommended that you fish around structures and in the shallows during this time of year. If a cold front moves in the bass will move back out to deeper water and they can be found in deep holes on the bottom. One excellent location to seek them out would be a shallow spot next to a deep hole.

Expect to have some competition when you hit the lakes and rivers during this time of year because there are many more anglers out there who are just as excited as you are to get back in on the action. The winters are long and for those who love getting out on the water and reeling in the bass, April can’t come soon enough. Be patient and respectful to others so everyone can have a better time and enjoy reeling in a nice mess of bass.

Don’t forget to take along a few extra items on your April fishing trip to make yourself more comfortable while fishing. You’ll need a good pair of sunglasses to take the glare off the water and everyone should wear sunscreen and a hat to prevent sunburn.
