Hoping To Educate Myself On Bass.

Recommended Posts

I am hoping to better educate my self on bass and what makes them hit certain lures at certain times, so my question is, has anyone here ever heard of Bass University TV?  Or does anyone here use it?  I am thinking about signing up the only reason I haven't is because I want some feedback on this.  If there is a better way out there to learn more about bass through high quality videos please inform me.

 

-Thanks

You can go that route, you can read quite a bit from this site in the article section, magazines, tv shows...gotta love Bill Dance...lol, ask lots of questions, and each time you go fishing make it a point to try to observe what is going on, the conditions, where you caught a fish that day, etc.  I think I have read almost every article on here in the last 2 yrs and have gained A LOT of useful information.  I try to put it into situations that I face when I go and apply it where I can.  Asking like you did with this will get you lots of answers from the great people on this site....even if we poke at one another every now and then...that's just part of being a fisherman and being competitive.  Each has a wealth of knowledge and information that they are willing to share if they can answer your question.  If that doesn't work, well you can always stock KVD......j/k

Yea, gotta love Bill Dance! I've read tons of articles on this site and gained some knowledge from them.  I am just looking for a book or a dvd from a experienced bass fisherman giving information in which they've learned from years of fishing.  Like for instance, what makes bass one day overly agressive to strike anything that touches the water then a few days later you can't tell if bass live there or not.  Pretty much the way bass think, feed, and what makes them tick.

I agree. This site can help out a ton the articles, forms, and the videos. The videos gene puts out are a huge help. Before I found this site I was always looking online for videos, and most of them are just ad's for lures. They give a little info but mostly wanna sell you something. Gene isn't about that, his videos are very informative. If you're looking to gain more knowledge about bass you're in the right spot here on bassresource

There is no shortcut to becoming a better bass fisherman.  The things you ask for are all here on this site.  What makes them overly aggressive one day and then not the next.....well that day, was there a storm front or weather pattern that rolled through the next day....could have put the fish on the feed.  Fall for instance, that first big chill will cool the water down and send them into overdrive to feed up for the winter.  Was it cloudy and windy, then sunny? Were there a ton a baitfish around when you were catching them?  All these questions YOU can answer yourself if you pay attention to the conditions you fish in each day.  There is no holly grail for bass fishing, just lots of pieces of knowledge you need to put together to solve the puzzle.  It's what makes bass fishing such a challenge.  Such a simple fish causes us such frustration, and most of the time we get in our own way.  Reminds me of a saying I heard one time....Keep it simple stupid. Makes since if you think about it.  I would first start with seasonal patterns and that will give you a good starting point to understand our finned quarry.

Yep....when you're not fishing, read read read and read some more. BassResource also has a video for almost everything. When I'm not fishing, I'm reading this site, magazines, books and whatever I can find to better educate myself on bass.
