Hey everyone!

 

I have been fascinated by bass fishing for most of my life but always I hesitated and felt overwhelmed by it all. I finally took the plunge and subscribed to many beginner bass YouTube channels and put together a decent 150$-200$ or so set of lures, lines, tackle, baits, and 2 rod & spinning reels to start off with.

 

I have lived in Broward County Florida for 5 years now and have prepped to go on my first LMB all day fishing trip at Markham tomorrow and Sunday,  maybe even hop around the 75N canals and even Holiday if I have time over the weekend.

 

I have a 6'6 Medium Ugly Stick and another older Medium 6'6 rod that was my grandpa's - the Ugly Stick has 15# flouro leader to 12# mono and my grandpa's is 8# mono to a 15# flouro leader. (I am saving up to get a 7'0 medium heavy ASAP).

 

I'm starting with a 3/8oz Colorado style spinnerbait first  but I included a screen shot of my list of stuff I have and am bringing with me. I have a willow spinnerbait, swim jigs and trailers, hollow body craws, green pumpkin and black senkos 5" etc. (I have everything on the list aside from the top water bait, the buzz bait, ribbon tail worm and chatter bait). I practiced uni/double uni knots, the palomor knot, and the improved clinch knot. 

 

I would be so grateful to hear some good tips , advice, local spots and anything else you guys can offer a total newbie like me before my first weekend. Also if theres any beginner clubs or meets willing to guide a 29 yr bass beginner like me that would be great too!

In Broward to have best luck with targeting LMB try finding areas that do not have snakeheads. Look for land locked lakes, and ponds for best success. I have lots of luck with plastic wiggle tail shad in all colors on LMB and Peacock bass.

 

Frogs are GR8 for big fish, and if you use them jerk / rest / swim / rest even if there are snakekeads they'll likely avoid it. In my experience they generally avoid slow baits unless you drag it over their brood. 

 

PS, look for a MH Ugly Stik, they're great rods, they're the only rods I use nowadays.

Awesome advice thanks so much ! I never knew avoiding snakeheads (I heard are really invasive) was a good way to target in on some bass. Thanks again, headed out now guys - will update later!

Tossing senkos will catch you loads of bass in Broward co. - snakeheads are great sport but they aren't bass
