What's your rod and reel?

The article section on this website is a great place to start. Also, look at the "Best of Bass Resource" sticky post within the forum. Many have asked the same questions that you are probably thinking and a lot of the answers you can find there. You've come to the right place, but nothing truly beats time on the water.

And remember, when it comes to learning from the internet: Google is your friend.

I prefer use 5-7 inch senkos"rubber worms" and wacky rig them," wacky rigg" means when you hook them right in the middle, so when holding the hook up in the air the worm is even on both sides. strike kings are like $2.96 a pack and last long, gary yomomotos are my favorite but after a while they get to be real exspensive not to mention they are super soft and rip when you catch a fish, so i recently switched to "strikeking". The way i fish this bait is casting it where ever you think fish might be, reel in your line until tight but not to much so it effects the fall of the lure, then jigg it once or twice on the fall or on the ground. Most of my strikes are either on the fall or right after i jigg it. I have landed over 35 bass this season using this and a simple crank bait, crankbait is also one of my favorite lures, very easy to use as well as effective and efficient for catching big large mouth.My bigggest bass this season so far is 5lb 8 ounces off a 2.5 deep bomber crankbait.The main line i use is fluro carbon 8-10 pound test, alot of guys use braid but i think its overkill, and effects the bait to much for my liking, plus im from new jersey so the state record bass is under 11 pounds, and i could use 8 pound fluro with a 15 pound breaking strength and cast it twice as far as braid.
