It can be challenging to know what bass fish want. Sometimes it’s the little details that can make all the difference. Pay attention to how the bass are reacting to your lure movements… sometimes they don’t even want it to move.
Do you know what’s going on at the end of your line? I mean, do you really know what your lure is doing? Do you know what it just hit? Was it a rock? A log? A fish? Do you even feel your lure? It must seem like these questions are silly, but most anglers can’t answer them correctly. After the third or fourth cast some anglers slip into the repetitive mode or worse yet they don’t know how the lure is supposed to feel.
