Hey! Im absolute trash at bass fishing. I need some help with catching and finding bass in a new lake. I would like to know where to find the fish, if they are mainly on the bank, out in the middle etc. What lures to throw along the bank and lures to throw fan casting. I need big help on finding the fish though.
That will narrow down your search. Use what the depth your fishing calls for.
The other recommendation would be to fish a weightless senko. Again Texas rig it just don't have a weight on and fish it through and near any cover you can get to. I haven't found many ponds where a bass won't eat a Texas rigged senko.
For both I'd start with a good overall Florida color like junebug.
The other advantage is if you master these worm techniques it will only help you down the road if you get really into bass fishing down the road since they'll transfer to a lot of other methods.
I suggest throwing top water type lures, so you can see the strikes. I find it a lot more entertaining than throwing worms or swim baits I can't see, plus it limits your possibility of snags.
Another thing that might help you, down size all your gear. For fresh water fishing you don't need anything larger than 10# test and make sure your hooks fit you plastics correctly. No 30# or wire leaders. You really don't even need a swivel. Just have fun with anything you can catch. If you get broke off... at least you have found a fish :-}
