Some Basic Information We’ll Need to Know


  •           Fishing in the right depth, right color, right speed means Crappie. We start out with a variety of colors and shapes of jigs
  •           Water color plays a part in determining the crappie feedings. Crappies go by seeing the food. If they do not see it, they will not eat it.
  •           They say fish see a variation of colors in waters and brightness of levels. This may be why fish no longer go after a color that was biting and no longer are. Now plain waters, we use clear jigs. Poorly lit or muddy waters, we use illuminated jigs with non lighted combo jigs.
  •           Now for casting, we use jig-n-bobber method This is where we fasten the jig anywhere 12in to 48in below the float. We are aiming for the jig to be a bit higher from the fish. We can also just drop the line to the depth, reeling it up slowly.Now let’s find the best crappie fishing jigs

Does Noise Have An Affect When Fishing

  •            Now here is another big bass fishing tip. Noise is a contributing factor while fishing. The older fish are loners. Older fish respond to noise quicker and will stay down. They also avoid the bait too. The older fish pick up on boat motors and peoples voices as well. They are in “red flag” stage. So we want to be going slow when a boat. And we sure don’t want to be driving our boat over the spot we want to be fishing.
  •            We will need to have a strong pole and a reel with 17 lbs or higher, that casts a good distance. Farther the line goes, the less noise there is for the fish out there. This is a Big Bass fishing tip worth hearing about.The Fisher Women

Weather Conditions

  •               Cloudy conditions work well for catching big bass. Now on these cloudy days before a storm, it triggers feeding. And the day after its hard to get the fish to eat. Early morning and nighttime is also a good time to go fishing. When we are expecting rainy weather and its raining is a good time too. The weather change impacts when the Big Bass are biting because of the air pressure dropping.
  •                  November thru March is the prime time to be catching Big Bass. Now November is the month to be catching that trophy fish. Now that’s a Big Bass fishing tips.
  •                 The sun plays a role too. When the UV index is low you will find fish in the shallow waters. When the UV index is high it causes shadows and the fish stay in pockets.
