Black Bass ID
The first one, the soft lure which is one of my favorites. It allows to prospect different areas depending on the weight of the lure. In the weed beds it is preferable to fish with a Texan lure in order to avoid getting hooked. Indeed, this technique consists in integrating the hook in the lure and avoid any possibility of hooking in the weeds. In soft lures you can use fish imitations of all types but also creatures like Craws. These Craws which are imitations of Crayfish are rather useful when the water is cold and it is necessary to gently scrape the bottom in order to irritate fish that are not very active.
Then there are the hard Stickbaits and poppers. These lures produce incredible strikes. This technique is great in shallow lakes or when bass are on the surface. My advice is to use popper in areas where there is a tree or branches in the water very close to the surface: Black Bass loves to hide in crowded areas. Still in the hard lures category, the cranckbaits are perfect to go scratch the bottom of the lake. Also existing: spinnerbaits and chatterbaits which are for me the lures that work all the time with these metal paddles to make the Bass angry. The spinner is for me the "magic" lure when nothing works. There are several weights allowing to fish more or less far and more or less deep. Finally, there is the Frog technique which is simply a frog imitation surface lure that is perfect for fishing weedbeds or lily pads. This technique also triggers incredible attacks.
