4.Rods and Reels

For Largemouth Bass I recommend using a medium action graphite rod for beginners. As you become more skilled, you will be able to define situations where a more specialized rod will improve your chances of success. For most situations though a medium action graphite rod is the ticket to success.

An open faced spinning reel with at least one hundred yards of eight to ten pound test line is a good place to start. Fluorocarbon line is your best choice because it is close to invisible in water and will make up for many mistakes a beginner will make the presentation of bait. Monofilament line would be your next best choice. You lose a bit of stealth with this line but gain in strength and stretchability.

5.Tackle box

A well-stocked tackle box is surely a good place to start when fishing for bass. It is important however to know when and where to use each piece of equipment you own.

Largemouth Bass can often be defined as either active or passive. When they are active, they will move at fast speeds to feed or defend its surroundings.

This is learned primarily through experience. Typically Largemouth Bass are active in the spring and fall and normally inactive during the hot summer months. This is not always the case, though. The activity level of this species can change from day to day and even hour to hour.

If you are fishing for bass for the first time, then artificial bait would be my recommendation. Unless you know what you are doing, you will have a better chance at landing a bass using a lure. One of the more popular lures for catching bass is the Spinnerbait lure, which is used by professionals and beginners.

For water, that is deeper than six to eight feet your best bet in a crankbait. Each of these lures is designed to be retrieved rapidly. When retrieved slowly their action is compromised and with it their effectiveness.
