Best Ways to Learn

Recommended Posts

Hi all you fisherwomen out there! Got a question for you. I need to teach a woman to fish for Bass. She fishs already but has never specifically targeted Bass. We will be entering some tourneys this coming spring and summer. What is your opinion on what was easiest for you to learn and what was hardest? Do any of the women out there have any suggestions on how to approach this? I have taught a lot of kids to fish adn continue to do so but I have never really tackled an adult. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi Chevy, Good question. I'd sugested spending the winter watching some Bass fishing vidio tapes. Make sure she has a good rod and reel to fish with. After that it just getting out there and doing it. My biggest problem is to remember to keep an eye on my line so I don't get a big mess. Maybe some books on Bass fishing and magizine articles. For me the best way to learn some thing is to just get out there and do it. Lots of casting practice. If she fishes already and this is some thing that she wants to do she will pick it up easy as any body else. And don't get mad when she out fishes you grin.gif

chevy one thing i found out ; is every time you have her use a different type of lure or presentation. explain what it is suppose to mimic and how it should feel while using, and what a hit will feel like.( a light hit, a bump, slam or just a bit of extra weight!) Mary is right. be shure she has the proper equipement for the types of fishing and that it is good shape. most gals i have delt with pick up on these things fast. and seem to have a better feel for the lure than many men. del

Hey thanks! Any Other Suggestions?

I have been teaching this 11 yr old to fish for bass. Cranks, Worms, Tubes and all the other fun stuff. You don't find very many 11 yr olds with the patience he has. Anyway the last couple of times we were out he out fished me BAD! smile.gif He has come a long way and it was fun to see him catching so many fish. I still hear about the couple times he beat me. hahaha He's a Good Kid though. So I am well prepared to get outfished!
I'll have to tell ya a story some time of the last girlfriend I had!
Later

I agree with Mary and del. I like videos better than magazines because they hold my interest better and I can rewind and watch them over and over. But I have always learned better by listening than reading.

Another thing I really enjoy is the presentations that the pros give at the sport shows. These are really interesting.

Just don't treat her like she is an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly if she asks a question and listen when she talks and smile when she out fishes you even using all the wrong things and you will be fine.

And I am waiting for that story! grin.gif

Hey thanks,

Ok, Story Time.

I taught an old girlfriend to fish and she really liked it. So I hooked her up with all the stuff she needed. Taught her to throw cranks, worm, tubes and all that other fun stuff. So we went to the Whitefish Chain in the Brainerd area to fish for the weekend. We were catch lots of fish but nothing with any size. Well we approached this weedbed and I threw my worm in and pulled out a nice 4#er. Well she looked at me and told me she was gonna catch one of those. I smiled and sort of chuckled to myself thinking "yeah right!". Well she was fishing with a small floating shallow running rap. She fired the lure at the weedbed but over shot it badly. The lure landed about a foot from the shoreline. I was in the process of telling her that she probably was not gonna catch anything that close to shore when all of the sudden a big bass busted outta the water and took the lure! At that exact moment it must of looked like world war 3 in the boat. She was yelling cause she had a fish on and I was tearing through the boat for the net. Well after a good fight she pulled it up to the boat and I netted it. 6.2 # was the final weight! I was in amazement how could a bass that big be in water so shallow. Darn thing must have been laying sideways! grin.gif
Well she told that story about a 100 thousand times after that. I was happy for her. It was a really nice fish. That is my story of one of the many times I got out fished! smile.gif

Happy Fishing smile.gif

Nice story, Chev. I had a dog named Chevy, once. She was a pund find and a wreck. I named her chevy 'cause she ran good, but needed work.

Anyway, my son (4) outfishes me all the time. It's Neptune's way of keeping us humble when we start to think we're "all that".

Hardest thing for me to learn from trout to bass, and probably from walleye/panfish to bass too, is that little window of time for the hookset. Most other species she's probably fished for do a little 'nibble-nibble-wander off' or a 'slam-it's-me!', but that bucketmouth's 'inhale-think-exhale' is a thing unto itself.

    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
