Oh, the pleasures of bass fishing! I like to make it even more exciting by fishing for bass with a medium-action spinning rod, using soft baits or topwater lures. Another option is to use a casting rod with spinnerbaits or crankbaits to fish even faster.
If you don’t know where the fish are, here's a good trick: fishing with tubes. Use a jerkbait to look for them and cover more ground faster. Once you’ve found them, but they are still playing hard to get, a wacky worm can make all the difference!
