How To Fishing
I’ve had a lot of folks ask about “How To” use various types of lures, so I’m starting a “How To Fishing” series.
I will offer tips and advice on techniques to catch big bass. Or at least to catch SOME bass!
These won’t be limited to my own experience, though whenever I’m able to add my own personal perspective on each technique.
So often, it will be the top bass fishing professionals, or other trusted experts I’ve discovered, who offer the advice. And other times, it will be me, your very own Smiling BassHole, doing the honors with my, er, maybe “wisdom”?
This page will offer links to the posts with the information. Whenever possible, I will include opportunities for the reader to purchase the products being discussed. But should you see something and want to know more about it, please don’t hesitate to ask! I’m always happy to answer questions!
I’ll also include categories. If some posts cover more than one topic (such as spinnerbaits AND plastic worms), I’ll include the post in all appropriate categories.
Come back and visit this page often, as I’ll be adding links to posts as they are created, and you can keep on learning!
Thanks for visiting, and I hope these tips help you improve your bass catching!
