New to Bass Fishing

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody! Sorry to ask a question that has probably been on here thousands of times but I'm fairly new to bass fishing and this past week Ive gone out every single day and havent caught one. I live in Arizona so is it just too hot during the day for Bass and night fishing is much better? I use senkos, roboworms, and zooms on a texas rig or drop shot. I mainly go to urban lakes or tempe town lake. ANY tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome aboard!

I don't live out there, but I know it's hot.

I'd definitely try night fishing, but I'd also 
ask locals who fish the lakes you fish to
see what works and when.

Good luck.

Hello and Welcome to Bass Resource.

Sounds like you're doing some good stuff.

 Though I am somewhat familiar with the Senko and Robo worms, what are zooms on a Texas rig ?

We spent a few days in Phoenix in July of 2014 and I fished the 3 ponds at Papago park (right next to the Phoenix zoo).  While I caught fish out of all 3 ponds, I caught the most & biggest fish from the top one (closest to the canal).  The water on that pond had the most color and a KVD 1.5 square bill in bluegill pattern was the most effective lure.  5 of the fish I caught out of out of that pond ended up being over 3 lbs and even though there is a lot of shoreline cover, they all came from open water.

The lower pond was the clearest (& largest), there a Rapala X-Rap jerkbait in steel (a bluegill color) was most effective for me.  Most of the other anglers seemed to be using plastics &/or jigs, which is why I am guessing I had good luck on the reaction lures.  The only fish I caught on a plastic worm was right next to a piling of a wood platform on the lower lake.
