How to Bass Fish

A simple guide to bass fishing for beginning and long-time anglers alike 

Learning how to bass fish can seem a little daunting if you’re new to fishing or taken a walk through your local fishing tackle shop recently. Maybe you’ve been at it a while and have accumulated a lot of tackle, and you’re still not really sure how best to put it to use.

This bass fishing guide will hopefully point you in the right direction on how to bass fish regardless of your skill level and experience.

But to keep things simple, an angler needs to know the following 4 things to be successful at bass fishing:

  • Required tackle for bass fishing and how to use it
  • Bass fishing techniques
  • Where to bass fish 
  • When to bass fish 

Essentially bass fishing is as simple as bait selection and presentation in the right place at the right time. The right time and place vary from season to season and even day to day. But knowing what tackle you need, how to rig it, how to tie a good knot, how to cast, how to retrieve, how to detect bites, how to hook and land fish will have you ready to catch bass. Then you just have to put together the lures, the locations and the times to fish those locations with those lures, and you’ll be catching bass consistently and improving the size of your catch as well.

Each of the sections above will send you to helpful illustrations, videos and how-to tutorials on techniques that have been proven to catch bass on lakes, rivers, ponds and other fisheries all over the nation.

Take a gander through this guide and if you have questions, post comments in any of the sections and we’ll do our best to get you answered quickly!

    • Thank you Todd. Appreciate the feedback. My biggest concern was the navigation of it because there is so much information to cover and still more to come. Glad to hear you could follow it. Thanks for reading and commenting. Good fishing to you.

  1. I am a bass angler and I met an Army Medic who wants to get into it. I would like to send him a link so he can book mark it. Can you please help me out here.

  2. “How to Bass Fish” is officially my text book. I am new to fishing and I’ve been reading this for hours. I like the pictures of all the different lures. The confusion ends for me here. Great job. The hard work and time put into this is easy to see. Thank you.

  3. What a great resource that you have created here. Thank you very much. Well written and presented in an easy to read and understand format. Saved to my favorites. Thanks again.
