One of the absolute best places to catch pinckney bass are lakes Merritt and Lake County. In addition, there are some creeks located in these waters and some rivers that flow into the lakes also hold large numbers of bass. Another great reason to fish these lakes and rivers which hold so many bass is the fact that they can be found relatively close to where people are. This makes it an easy task to toss a bobber or worm for a stream weigh, getting a feel for the current. If you do decide to fish these lakes with other anglers there are some tips to consider. First of all, be sure that the person fishing the lake is aware of the regulations. Super loudinators (water spas) and gusty winds can easily push bass out of permitted areas which may have been marked for only bobber and worm fishing. There are also areas designated for only live bait anglers. Be sure to read and understand any and all rules and regulations pertaining to the lake.

You should feel inclined to stay with your preferred lure type and allow the bass to follow your bobber, worm or other lure. If this is not happening, switch to an alternate lure. When the weather is really cold, you should think about the fact that bass are cold blooded, therefore their body temperature will fall when they are not eating. Switching your lure to a surface bait will in most cases trigger a reaction and a strike from a fish that is not blow bitten or snagged. Picking out the right bass fishing tackle which includes live bait which are key to catching larger bass is quite simple. The number one mistake that most anglers make is to let the tackle stand in the sun and go be unused all summer. The tackle should be stored in a cool area when not in use.
