Have you ever watched those
cable TV programs that feature the bass pro fisherman? I do — I watch them all
the time — I love them, in fact. Have you ever noticed how many of these guys
are really into the latest bass fishing tackle
Bass fishing is a sport that
attracts thousands of sportsmen to area lakes every year. Canada, Mexico
and the United States
all have various types of bass in their rivers, but most fishermen appreciate
the famous Large Mouth Bass. This is one of the most sought after species because
of the rewarding experience of catching one.
If you going on your first
Bass fishing trip and you haven’t done any fishing ever before it can be a bit
daunting to try and find the right fishing tackle.
The moment you step in to a shop that sells fishing tackle, or better yet a
shop that specializes in fishing, you will see that there are thousands of
items to choose from. Things like lures, reels and rods are there in so many
forms and variations and they exist because each one is needed in its own
situation. For a beginner this can be shocking and even a reason not to go
fishing but you should not let this huge assortment of fishing items to choose
from get you down. As a beginner you don’t have to know what all the different
items are for just try and get the basics.
Tip Action: This tells you if the tip is soft or maybe more stiff.
When the tip of your rod is soft then you will be able to make a more accurate
cast, but on the other hand it will make the choice of lures a lot smaller.
A Rod: We begin with the most difficult item in your bass fishing tackle, the
decision which rod you need to buy. You already know that there are a lot of
rods you can choose from. One can get a special rod for every type of fish you
can catch or for the special lures that are available. The choice of rod
largely depends on the type of lure you will be using. Looking at them you
would not say so, but a fishing rod is a complex piece of tackle. When we talk
about bass fishing rods there are four points to look for and these are tip
action, length, power and sensitivity.
Length: The type of fishing you are going to do and the type of lures you
will be using will dictate the length of the rod.
