The Best Bass Fishing Techniques

Fishing is not only a hobby for many people, but it is also one of the biggest sources of healthy meats. Fish meat is white and high in protein, making it one of the preferred meats in most countries, although in some places, it could be costly. In this article, we would like to discuss fishing, mainly focusing on the best bass fishing techniques. This way, the next time that you’re out fishing for bass, you’ll have an idea of how to succeed better.


Pitching and flipping are two techniques that can be used to catch those elusive bass, although pitching is the easier one, although not as precise as flipping. The line that you let out should be even with the reel, and the reel should be kept open. It involves swinging the reel away from yourself, towards the target, and the reel should be closed as soon as you pitch because bass are very fast.


Flipping is a little harder than pitching, but with practice, it becomes a walk in the park. One can let out at least 8 to 15 feet of line, close the reel, and then with a pendulum motion, swing the bait to the location where the bass is.


Topwater refers to top water bait, whereby the fish comes for the fish at the top as you watch and prepare for the strike. This usually targets hungry fish, and it attracts with noise and dramatic movements. The baits include poppers, jitterbugs and frogs.

There are other fishing techniques such as crankbait and drop shotting, but we will look at those another day.

Everything You Should Know About Purchasing a Fishing Reel

In order for you to fish, you’re going to need a fishing reel, and that is what brings us to our next topic. This is a guide to fishing reels that will help you out when you go shopping for one. There are a number of types of reels that we will mention, and also explain how to spool a spinning reel.

Types of Fishing Reels

  • Spinning Reel (fixed spool reel)
  • Spincasting Reel
  • Baitcasting Reels
  • The Fly Reel
  • Centerpin Reel
  • Underspin Reel
  • Anti-Reverse Reel

How to Spool a Spinning Reel

When spooling a spinning reel, the size of the line should be proportional to the size of the reel. Spinning reels are different from bait casting reels because spinning reels have lighter lines. Look at some of the tips of spooling spinning reels below:

  • Watch how the reel bail turns.
  • Turn the handle as if you were reeling in a fish.
  • Watch how the line is wound around your filler spool.
  • Tie the end of your reel spool using arbor knot or an uni-knot.
  • Start reeling the line to your spool, adding the new line to the reel. Passing the line between the fingers can increase the tension.
  • Monitor the line for twisting after a few rotations.
  • Continue filling the spool within 1/8 of an inch from the rim. The reel could come with a mark on the spool showing when it fills to the right level.
  • Under-filling the reel will mean shorter casts, while over-filling could absorb water to slip past the flange and cause backlash when casting. Cut the line off the filler spool when filled.


I guess that you’re now looking forward to your next bass fishing trip. Armed with the tips mentioned above and the right reel, you’re sure to find some luck with a little experience.…
