What Is The Best Way To Catch Bass In The Everglades?

What is the best way to catch bass in the everglades?

The Everglades is a great place to fish for bass. The population of largemouth bass is huge and they seem to thrive there so there is always some action, even in the winter! However, if you are not an experienced bass fishing enthusiast with relevent knowledge of the area then hiring a bass guide would be your best bet. The area is dangerous owing to the alligator population, but a guide will have you in a safe zone and in the thick of the action! As the Everglades is extremely wild in terms of the vegetation, taking weedless lures with you might help you to catch a high number of bass. Weeded lures have the potential to get stuck and lost in vegetation, whereas weedless lures will just glide through it. This will make the experience much more enjoyable for you. In terms of your technique, asking questions of your bass fishing guide will help you to determine what technique is best to use. However, the fishing action is often fast and furious so keeping the line in the water for more than a few minutes at a time would probably not imporve your catch rate any. Instead, try fishing deep and bring the line up a foot or so every few seconds. A chartreuse bait would also help to make this technique a success because the colour is naturally attractive to bass. Alternatively, you could use a buzzbait to draw the attention of the bass. The vibrations will act like a magnet and improve your catch rate no end.
