Reegarding Tips for Beginners by Donovan Welsh

Recommended Posts

Hey, i've got a couple of Qs regarding his article. First, he likes crankbaits best. Well, I have a question. Do they really WORK?:P Another thing. He despises spinnerbaits. Well, i caught three fish on it the other day. And it was simple too.

Yet another Q. Why does he say it takes lots of patience to catch fish with plastic worms, when they're the biggest bass producer (at least according to A Guide to Freshwater Fishing.) And furthermore, i got a fish like the second or third time a cast.

Now, i know i sound stupid here, so please don't make fun. :P

Is that a book or something that is on this site?

I am not even sure who that guy is.

Sorry I can't be of any help.

I knew somebody would ask that - boy that sure didn't take long!  :D

Give this a whirl: http://bassresource.com/beginner/beginning_bass_fishing.html

I think the jist of the article was that it takes a little time, patience, and practice to learn the various techniques and tools of the sport.

I haven't read the article. Yes, absolutely crankbaits work and work very well. Spinnerbaits are a versatile bait and are big-time producers. Plastic worms catch the most fish because they are attractive baits and feel edible, so fish hold on unlike  quickly trying to spit out hard baits. They also catch the most fish because they are so widely used.

As to why he said worms take a lot of patience, perhaps because they are a slow moving bait compared to crankbaits and spinnerbaits.
