Largemouth Bass Fishing at Night - The Perfect Way to Catch Bigger Largemouth Bass

A lot of people feel just a little bit uncomfortable freshwater fishing at night, as one fisherman told me, 'even bass need to get some shut eye!' Though truth be known, night time largemouth bass fishing can be just as fruitful if not more so than during daylight hours.

I think its common knowledge that the best time to fish for almost all freshwater fish is either early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Although not that many freshwater anglers are concerned with the 'why'.

Bass are by their very nature are ambush predators, they love to lay in wait ready to ambush their next meal. Therefore to ambush prey they have to find ways to keep themselves concealed and out of plain sight.

So one could say that bright light is a bass's worst enemy, because light obviously makes them highly visible to their prey.

This is why you can expect better results fishing for largemouth bass early in the morning when its still relatively dark and late in afternoon or early evening when the sun doesn't penetrate the water so much. Largemouth Bass use the lack of light to help remain concealed, not only to help them to ambush prey but also to help them from becoming prey themselves from larger predators.

Thats why if your out largemouth bass fishing at the brightest part of the day, its always best to fish on and around the fringes of thick well shaded cover or use a deep diving crankbait and fish in deep water where the water is darker.

Better still you can fish at night!

Largemouth Bass Fishing at night can be surprisingly fruitful especially when you understand how the water environment differs at night and how largemouth behave differently after the sun goes down.

Obviously at night there is very little light, even on a clear nights full moon there is very little light in the water column even in shallow water. As a result largemouth bass feel a lot more confident and secure about venturing further to find a meal or even just to explore.

During the cloak of darkness largemouth will also respond better to sound, whether that be the rattle of your lure or the sound of your lure landing on the waters surface from a cast. Because a bass won't be able to rely so much on its visual acuity it will simply switch to its senses it can use in near darkness which of course is sound and the detection of vibration.

Also when a largemouth bass encounters what it thinks just might be prey, it will be much more ready to strike without visually re-affirming that the object its actually an acceptable food source.

All this is great news for those adventerous enough to try largemouth bass fishing at night, as even the oldest, wisest and of course largest largemouth bass will be much more ready to lower its guard and take a swipe at anything it thinks might make a tasty treat.

Some tips for Largemouth Bass Fishing at Night

Use a dark lure - Black freshwater lures are best at night, you want a lure that is going to make the strongest silhouette in low light.

Use a lure with a loud rattle - because the fish can't rely on their visual acuity you have to offer something else to entice them out.

Fish near or around light sources - fishing around a dimly lit pier provides just enough light in the water for predatory fish to see that something is there.

Fish around known cover - if you have fished the area before and are familiar with the cover, chances are fishing the same cover at night could provide you with larger fish.

Largemouth Bass Fishing - Lake Fishing For You and Your Loved Ones

Fish caught on a lake fall into three general headings: Game fish, Food fish, and Forage or Bait fish. Largemouth Bass, fall under the general heading of Game fish. Anglers, both amateurs and pros, enjoy tournaments every year and compete for large sums of money all over the United States. Whether you are an old hand at fishing on a lake or a beginner it can prove to be extremely fun. For the novice, it will be important to master the correct rigging, casting, type of bait or lure etc., in order to get the best enjoyment possible from their experience.

Therefore, we will be discussing some tips that could help the new angler, master the art of lake fishing and catch that extreme long sought after Largemouth Bass like the pros. First, knowing where the fish live, and making sure Largemouth Bass inhabit the lake you are fishing on will give you the edge to find your prey. Ask at the bait shop for Lake Maps and any information that will assist you in your quest. The local fisherman are keenly aware of the "special" places they catch their best bass and may be willing to share that information with you. At times, it may be prudent to hire a guide to assist you if you are new to the area and unfamiliar with the lake. Second, If you are fly-fishing remember that you are working the line not the fly. Fly-fishing is an art and takes many years of practice. Keep in mind that the fly is but a passenger, which is attached to the leader. Be gentle and have finess, don't snap the line like a whip or you'll loose your fly.

Instead use a smooth, snappy kind of stroke with the same type of movement as you would a whip but not as hard. The art of Fly-fishing requires one to have the "proper timing" and timing is one of the most important factors in the backcast and forward cast. Third, The most popular lake fishing is done mostly with larger, sturdy rods. Largemouth Bass can and do get quite large, easily weighing over 12 pounds. If there is a large abundance of food combined with a safe habitat, largemouth bass can get so large that your wildest dream of catching the extreme largemouth bass will come true just as if you were a pro. Landing a large fish such as this will provide you with a lifetime of memories. Keep in mind that catch and release is commonly practiced today and ensures that the population of fish is intact for the next generation. Be prepared to take lots of photos to capture the moment and have those memories forever.

When going out to catch largemouth bass, the ideal length and weight of the rod is about 8 ½ feet in length and from 4 to four and three quarters of an ounce in weight. Casting with a rod and reel is just as much an art as Fly-fishing and can take lots of time and practice in order to become confident in placing your cast right where you want it. Take your time and learn to cast with your rod and reel using a practice plug. Before long you will be able to land any cast exactly where you want it.

One day you may just cast your lure right into the mouth of the extreme largemouth bass of your dreams and land it just like the pros. Lake fishing really is not difficult to master and with a little patience you will be coming home with your share of Largemouth Bass and a camera full of photos of your day out by yourself, with friends, or with your family and loved ones. With a little patience and practice, the novice can become a successful angler in the lake. I wish you a lifetime of happy fishing and memories.

Largemouth Bass Fishing - Lessons For the Beginner in Different Rods For the Best Catch

When you are planning to catch that Largemouth Bass you always dreamed of, there is an important part of your fishing experience that is very necessary. The decision on the Rod and Reel you choose can make the difference between landing that Extreme Largemouth Bass or going home with the minnows you brought for bait.  Choosing the perfect Rod and Reel is difficult for even the experienced angler, so you can imaging the confusion that the beginner bass fisherman faces.

There are two basic concepts that are important to understand about rods. These are: POWER and ACTION.


Rod Action refers to the bend in the rod. Rods bend in different parts and can be separated by three different areas:  The last quarter or essentially near the tip. At the last third to the tip and throughout the whole rod.  The bend at the tip area is known as a Fast Action Rod. The last third to the tip is known as a Moderate Action Rod, and the bend throughout the rod is known as a Slow Action rod. Knowing the difference between these different actions is important and will determine which type of fishing experience you will have and potentially change the way you fish and the experience you have.

FAST ACTION RODS: Bend at the tip: Will affect the cast and throw since the force will be at the tip and you can usually cast farther and longer . However, since you have more force at the tip, you can fling your bait right off the hook due to the whipping effect that you are able to create.  Slow and Moderate Action Rods are less yielding and have less tendency to have a whip effect and won't throw your bait off the hook as freely, but you don't get the distance during your cast as with the Fast Action Rod.  


Rod Power refers to the ability of the rod to handle different lure weights and line sizes. Rods range from different designations of Ultra-Light  all the way through to Heavy.  The lighter the rod, the lighter the weight that a rod can handle. This determines its power. So, for example, an ultra-light rod may only be able to handle lures weighing 1/32 ounce to 1/4 ounce.  As the rod increases in its designations, the POWER of the rod increases and will be able to hold more  progressive lure weights. Also, the line pound test increases with the increase of the size of the rod such that an ultra-light rod may only be able to handle 2-6 pound test and a heavy rod may be able to handle up to 15-20 pound test line.  

Different places and areas for fishing will determine what type of Rod you may choose based on the types of lakes and grasses you will be faced with. The All Around Choice varies with the fisherman and the experience depending on the location, temperature and seasonal changes in the environment. 

In my opinion, the best choice for the beginner Largemouth Bass fisherman is a medium-light power, fast action rod for use with a spinning reel.  This type of rod gives the beginner the ability to feel the casting action and have the power to bring in a decent sized Largemouth Bass. The cast is not only easy, but you can feel the differences by testing different casting techniques which will further help you get to know the way in which the rod gives and takes with each different cast technique until you master both the Power and Action of your particular rod.  If you are going after larger bass in the over 10 pound range, then it may be more prudent to use a medium power rod as you can control the rod better and land the larger fish with less chance of loosing it or having it spit out the lure . Remember the larger the rod, the heavier both the lure and weight you can use but you loose a little in the cast.

There are many different Rods to choose from and depending upon the type of fishing you plan to do will determine which type of rod you choose. Planning properly by getting familiar with the differences between the Action and the Power of different rods will enable you to go out and fish on different days with different climates, wind conditions and terrains successfully. They make different Rods and Reels for a purpose, learn which ones will work better under different conditions and you will land that Extreme Largemouth Bass of your dreams.

Largemouth Bass Fishing Tips From the Ole Codger

Picture this scene: The setting Sun just dropped below the distant tree line, the water is calm and a light breeze is blowing. As you reach for the tackle box to pack up something catches your eye-a swirl in the water over near a fallen tree. You quickly pull out a Carolina rigged plastic worm and snap it onto the line. The lure makes a gentle splash about three feet beyond where you saw the disturbed water. A few turns on the reel and...BAM! I big fella hits the lure.

The adrenalin begins to pump through your body. The big fish breaks the surface and then dives back under-tugging fiercely.

The thrill of hooking a keeper, a largemouth bass, has no equal. And if you are new to bass fishing or an old timer like me, memories of past catches fly before your eyes.

Largemouth bass have been challenging anglers for more years than anyone can remember. Their range covers much of North America so one doesn't have to travel far for the chance to land a trophy.

Time was when all an angler carried to the lake was a cane pole and an old soup can full of red wigglers.

Today's bass fisherman is far better equipped: Top of the line rod, reel and a dozen or so assorted lures of all sizes shapes and colors. His bass boat has a GPS, a depth finder and a marine VHF radio so he can keep up with what is going on around the lake.

Whether you are a newly minted angler or an experienced semi-pro, there is always something missing from your education. Walk into most sporty goods shops and look over the gear. Do they categorize lures and related fishing gear so you'll know what lures to buy, what is the best tackle? Nope. You are on your own. And none of this stuff comes with an instruction manual.

Anyway, good fishing technique begins with knowing how to cast whatever lure you plan to use. Here are a few basic tips that may help you:

On the water or on the shore, select a position based on the clarity of the water. Get too close and that sly old bugger will see you and skedaddle. Just be close enough to be accurate in placing the lure.
Aim for a point a couple of feet beyond your target so the splash won't frighten him too much.
Practice casting with a low trajectory. Use sidearm or underhand launches. Keep it low to the water, especially if it's windy to prevent side slipping.
If it is windy, tighten up the slack to keep the line taught before the lure splashes in. You don't want the wind blowing the line into thick reeds or over-hanging branches.
Before casting drop the lure 8-10 inches from the rod's tip for added momentum.
It's all in the wrist. Use very little arm and shoulder movement when making the cast.
Use a rod that is fairly stiff but with some flex in the last several inches.

As time goes by I'll be posting other articles covering much more information. There are many factors to consider to really get good at bass fishing, like what is the best lure under different circumstances, what color lure works best in murky water, where to find the big ones when the weather begins to turn foul. You can get a bass fishing education like I did when I found "Bass Fishing Exposed," an e-book written by a top professional that is available for instant download.

Largemouth Bass Lures - Choosing Your Bass Fishing Lures

Fishing is a great hobby and largemouth bass fishing is even more exciting as these species are exciting and relatively easy to catch. These fishes are also found in many bodies of water, from small ponds to reservoirs to natural lakes and other bodies of water that does not have strong current.

If you want to explore bass fishing, one of the things you must consider is finding out the best largemouth bass lures. Different kinds of lures are used by fishermen in getting those largemouth bass lures, and they differ from sizes and colors and may resemble much of what are usually found in the waters.

Largemouth bass lures are often 'specialized' for a certain location or the depth of the water where you want to go fishing, although all lures help you catch these fishes, you can maximize your catch by using the appropriate lure in certain waters or locations. If you are going out bass fishing in shallow waters, you have to go for lures best for shallow waters. Among the lures good for shallow water fishing are hair-bugs, buzz baits, surface plugs, poppers and other soft plastic lures. Mouse imitations are also good if you are under trees.

If you are going fishing in not too shallow waters, and slightly deeper waters, artificial worms that are a little heavier can be effective. Among the lures that are effective in this kind of setting are spoons, spinner baits, crank baits, minnow plugs, and streamers, although spoons are great for bass fishing at any depths. Crank baits are better in rock ledges. Suspending crank baits and spinner baits are also great in these not so shallow nor too deep waters.

If you love going out to deeper waters for fishing largemouth bass, you can however use largemouth bass lures efficient for deeper water such as the jigging spoons with pork rind dressing. Plastic worms, lead-heads and other soft-bodied lures are also great for deep water bass fishing. You can also explore deep diving crank baits and rattle traps in deep water fishing.

Among the considered most effective lures that you may want to bring in going out fishing are the buck tail jigs that you can treat with pork rind. Using these lure in heavy cover is one great way to get a good catch when it comes to bass fishing. The Kicktail minnow is also another great one to buy and bring with you. In fact, a good bass fisherman always has a Kicktail minnow in his fishing equipment as this type of lure has been proven to be very effective in bass fishing.

However, you have to keep in mind too that the effectiveness of your largemouth bass lures may depend on its quality and on how you effectively use them. Don't just let the lure do everything for you. You have to determine which type of lure is best for certain time and conditions and of course, practice in using them can play a big role in making them effective and in making yourself a wise largemouth bass fishing enthusiast.

The Largemouth Bass

In freshwater lakes, minnows can be seen swimming in quite large numbers. They try to hide in the shallows and reeds, to avoid becoming the next meal of a largemouth bass. Now and again they will venture into the shallows, looking for a juicy insect to feed upon.

When the bass gets into the shallows chasing baitfish and insects, this is a real opportunity to use crankbaits and catch yourself a rake of lovely bass. A lovely summers day can be spent this way, and be rewarded for your patience.

When bass are right in the shallow water and are on a feeding frenzy, one of the best techniques is to use little crankbaits on top of the water. Whilst the fish are feeding on flying insects, they see these as trapped insects and grab them.

Largemouth bass will really go for a crankbait floater in the summertime, and good results can and will be achieved by employing this technique on a regular basis. in the autumn and winter, largemouth bass tend to slow down and feed in deeper water for easier victims.

When waters are warm they are really agressive feeders and will have a go at anything they think is edible, within reason. When they are on the hunt and going for it, your floating morsel will probably be grabbed, and you are into a nice catch.

When you are fishing a very accessible and possibly a lake that is overfished, the fish there may well have been bombarded with crankbait and become hookshy. Another type of bait may well fair better, such as a worm lure.

Of course the name of the game is to try out as many of the available techniques as possible, you could always try out different lures, or even make up your own designs. maybe loosely making it along already made designs, who knows you may make the next big thing in largemouth bass fishing.


On a summers afternoon there can be nothing more pleasing than getting out the fishing kit, then making your way to your favourite bass fishing spot to setup shop. You are surrounded by beauty and sunshine, what more could you possibly want. For good tips and techniques, visit the following website.

My Pursuit For Lunker Largemouth Bass

My pursuit for lunker largemouth bass led me to small lakes and ponds. Here's a tip, make sure your lure is tied on before you get to the pond, so you don't make a lot of noise fussing around. I usually rig a plastic worm, dark color if the water's dark, light color if the water's clear. I then rig it Texas style or weed less. Then I try to be very quite walking up to the pond, because most of the time the bass are sitting right next to the shore line.

Try this next time. What I do right before I get to the spot I'm going to fish. I stop (maybe 5 to 10 feet from the water's edge) and cast a rubber worm in to the water just in case there's fish swimming right next to shoreline where I'm going to be standing. I have landed quite a few lunker bass doing just that. The fish do not see me, and they do not hear me.

I learned that technique from fishing quarry ponds that are crystal clear. One of the first times I was fishing a quarry ponds, I was standing there on the shore line and I could see 5 or 6 trophy bass in the (7 to 9 pound range) swimming around out there. I went to make my first cast and as my arm was moving forward before I even cast, those lunker bass scattered, they could see my arm moving. And that's when I started to sneak up on the small ponds.

Here's another technique I use sometimes when I'm fishing a pond. I take my plastic worm and cast it, but not into the water but up on the edge of the bank. Then slide my worm back into the water, no splash and I didn't scare the fish, and the plastic worm looks like a real live snake slithering into the water. Hope these few easy to follow tips help you catch more lunker largemouth bass from small lakes and ponds.

A lot of people, and articles helped me, and maybe I could help you. With some more tips and techniques on How To Catch Lunker Bass

Where to Catch Largemouth Bass

Everyone has their secret spots when it comes to fishing, but while traveling to new lakes, keep these tips in mind. Largemouth bass spend most of their lives in 5 to 15 feet deep water, but occasionally move deeper to hunt for food or to escape sunlight. When near shallow water bass typically are near some kind of shady cover, and more likely if that shade is near deep water. As a fisherman, look near emergent vegetation, lily pads, submerged weeds, overhanging trees, stumps, brush, and docks are always a common place to find them.

Depending on the time of year, bass will locate to different parts of the lakes and ponds. While one spot may be great in the summer, that may not be true in the fall.

Places to try in natural lakes:

· In the spring, get into the shallow bays because they warm faster than the rest of the lake. Bass move in to find a meal and later, spawn. Mud-bottomed bays warm first because the dark bottom absorbs those sunny rays.

· In the summer and fall, get to the weed lines. Too far from there the water get's too deep for adequate light penetration.

· Slop bays attract bass in summer due to the thick layer of floating weeds keeping the water below relatively cool. Also, they offer an abundant supply of food.

· Rocky bottoms or weedy bottoms with humps make for a superb summertime bass hangout. The shade offered by the rocks and weeds and the ability for bass to retreat into the adjacent deep water is attractive to them.

· Shallow flat parts of the water on warm sunny days in late fall and winter work too. The flats along the shore are best because they warm faster.

Places to try in man-made lakes:

· Try the main lake points, especially near river channels or streams, both in summer and winter.

· In the summer, try the river channel bends and intersections; they're typically better than straight sections.

· Any man-made stuff like; submerged roadbeds, railroad grades and foundations make for good bass hideouts. Some reservoir maps will show these features giving you a head start from searching for them.

· In the summer look for humps with timber or weeds, and especially if they are close to river channels.
