Quick Reference for dummies!!

Recommended Posts

I am relatively new to bass fishing. I've been doing it for a few years now and maybe I'm a slow learner ??? but I can't seem to always remember the best rigs to use for the different conditions. I was just wondering if anyone knows of a simple way or relatively simple way to get there from here. I have discussed this matter with a few of my older and more experienced friends and they have all pretty much said the same thing " you'll figure out what works when you figure out what works." What the hell does that mean?  8)

I think your friends are merely saying that as you fish more and more, you will see what works and you'll be more likely to remember something that you discover on your own.

In the meantime, try reading some of the articles on this site's Beginner's section and see if they help.

Also keep a fishing log. When you find something that works record it in a notebook or something.

Weather Conditions:

1.)Air temp

2.)Wind

3.)Barometer

4.)Type of sky (Overcast, Clear, Partly Cloudy etc..)

Water Conditions:

1.)Water temp

2.)Clarity

3.)Water level

4.)PH levels

General:

1.)Type of bait

2.)Type of structure fished

3.)Depth of structure and depth fish were caught at

4.)etc....

I started doing this and it really helped me out. It gave me a place to start when I hit the water!

We were all beginners at one time.Although I've learned a lot by watching others and word of mouth,I think I have learned the most reading about it.I bet I've read several hundred issues of Bassmaster magazine,Bassin',Outdoor Life,and many others.I still read them because I want to learn more.I also read bassing sites on the net.I've been pouring over Bass Resource for over a year.It's an excellent source of info.There are many others too.Read,learn, and keep learning.

We all had to start fishing before we caught fish. Rattlinrogue is rite. Read everything you can. If you are like me and have trouble remembering all that stuff when you get on the water. Read one or two articles and take them out on the water and put them to the test. Don't try to learn it all at once. I never had anyone to teach me how to fish. I learned it all on my own. It took forever. All of you beginners are lucky to have the Internet during this early stage in you fishing. This site is the best place to start.
