General Tips and Advice for Catching Bass
Bass will hide out in areas with natural or man made cover. Look for weed beds, tree limbs that have fallen in the water or large patches of Lilly pads. They are an ambush predator so they will wait in these areas until they spot a meal that swims by.
Early morning or late afternoon’s produce good fishing activity while bass fishing. Overcast days or other days with low light conditions produce good results. A few hours before sunset through a few hours after are the hours that produce best while Bass fishing.
In general the smaller bass’s diet consists more of small insects, whereas the larger adults consume small fish, frogs, salamanders, craw fish ect.
Rooster tails or spinner baits work well in low light days. My advice is to keep to the live bait whenever possible. Skimming a rubber frog over a pond that is covered by Lilly pads produces excellent and exciting results.
Tight lines and good luck Bass fishing in Oklahoma.
