bass fishing equipment

Recommended Posts

After watching you guys catch those nice bass on the IceLeaders video,I have a few questions since I've never tryed for them. What action rods do you prefer for bass? and which line is best, mono or Fireline? Any thoughts on live bait vs plain or tipped lures? Thanks for the help.

Good question. We caught those bass fishing with your typical walleye gear. Basically a medium action rod with a fast tip but solid backbone. I prefer 6-8 pound test mono or flourocarbon, both are good choices. Some people like Fireline and thats fine too. I always rig up a rod with a 1/16 or 1/4 oz jig head for jigging a live lake shiner. I also try a plastic tube, in either white or pearl. Jigging spoons will catch some fish once in a while too. There are times when the fish will be negative and you'll have to downsize, I prefer a Fatboy style jig with a split shot about 10 inches up or so, that always seems to work on those negative fish.

These fish are hard fighters and they are a blast to catch! Sometimes they hit hard and sometimes they are light biters. Make sure you have a strong hook smile.gif

Good Fishin,
