The Most Important Bass Fishing Techniques you will ever learn!

Bass Fishing Techniques…….what are they you may ask? There are many different techniques in the vast and wide world of Bass Fishing. Each has its place and each can be deadly in catching Bass.

Some of the Best Techniques I will show to you are:

1. Flipping
2. Pitching
3. Skipping
4. The Drop Shot
5. The Carolina Rig
6. The Texas Rig
7. The Weightless Rig
8. The Split Shot Rig
9. Sight Fishing

Although it can take many hours of practice to completely master each of these techniques it is worth your time. One of the very best ways to catch more fish is to practice more. By practice I mean time with a rod and reel in your hand. You do not have to be on the water, I have spent many, many hours standing in my yard with the neighbors giving me a look like I was nuts but over time it paid off.

If you are fortunate enough to be able to spend these hours on the water you are a very lucky person. You WILL catch more fish with more practice.

In the early days of the B.A.S.S. pro tournaments, many of the anglers were very good at only one or two techniques. If you watch these tournaments on TV today, the current guys have mastered many different techniques. The “old school” guys could never compete with the anglers of today.

To be successful, even if you are just fishing for fun and recreation you need to be able to adapt to the conditions and change it up to match those conditions. If you are fishing tournaments, this becomes even more important. If you are one dimensional you may be able to finish high every now and again but you will never be consistent enough to compete at the highest level.

Now, I am not saying that is the goal of every Bass Fisherman but, it very well may be the DREAM of every Bass Fisherman!
