Still learnin...

Recommended Posts

ok... just found this site looks like a good site to get help with a lot of good people..

Ive been bass fishin since i was about 7 or so (im only 15 now) but my dad has always been a bluegill and catfish guy and a little crappie fishin also so i really havent learned that much about bass fishin but i still love it.....

Anyways... basically all i know is that crank baits dont work good in dirty muddy water and that flippin jiggs and worms and using spinner baits works well in the shallow wter .. it think. So what i was hopeing to find is someone who could give me a website on what type bait crank baits/ worms / jiggs / spinner baits / etc. and color to use at what time of year and when the water is up etc.

I have heard that alot of times during the summer the water will drop some and the bass will go back with it to the river banks unless the water happens to raise for some reason then they will move up with it to the shallow areas.

Well if anyone knows any web guids or have the patience to type it out for me I would really be happy, ANd if it helps any I live In Tennessee so i mainly fish out on the Kentucky Lake Up in Paris, TN.

Thanks..

Justin T. P.

A good place to start if you do not have specific questions is in the fishing articles.  There is a lot of good information by a lot of different people and areas that have posted it.  You can find it a the top of the page in the green bar then "fishing articles"  it will have a drop box with numerous sub titles.  Here is a link to the beginners section.

welcome aboard!

this statement is wrong though.

you can't do much better than a big, bright, loud throbby crankbait in muddy water! fish slow and tight to cover.

That first one is a lipless crankbait, a type of lure of which some of the best-known are Rat-L-Trap, Spot and Rattling Rapala. They are very productive and can be fished in a variety of ways.

The articles can explain them better than I can. Go down about 12 articles and you'll see some articles about Traps and lipless cranks.
