New to bass fishing and this forum...hope you guys can guide me

Recommended Posts

Hello guys & gals,

I am new to this bass fishing stuff.  I moved from Oregon (where I was a solid fly fishermen) to Raleigh North Carolina.  

I've purchased some rods/reels and lures recommended by sales guy at Bass Pro.  My wife even went so far to buy me a brand new LOWE boat...that nearly sank first time out due to Mfg. defect (failed to properly seal the keel).

I'd love to meet/greet anyone who is willing to share some knowledge...I know how to throw a fly to trout...but these big lures and rubber worms...I'm lost!!

Willing to take any advise...(already been watching YouTube to learn some techniques on lure throwing.

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi and welcome to the forums,,,, let me say I'm the opposite, allways wanted to learn to fly fish,,,, most everyone here will probably tell you to start off with a plastic worm, t-rigged, thrown into cover, rocks, drop offs etc.,,,, many great videos here, excellent advice all around, many very knowledgeable people here,,,,

Hi and welcome. Search the videos for beginner bass lures and techniques. You'll find something you can do. As mentioned before, throw that 6" Texas rigged plastic worm in any color as long as it's a shade of purple. ;) Kidding of course. Buy a few spinnerbaits to cover the middle of the water column and a few topwaters to cover the top and you'll be off to a good start. The topwater bite should be cooling off now.

Anyway, read and watch everything you can. This Interwebs didn't exist when I was learning and I had to rely on what others showed me.
