Five better-bass-fishing tips

As the old saying goes, “the devil is in the details.” This couldn’t ring more true than when bass fishing. When the bass-fishing action is hot on your favorite lake, it may be easy to overlook small slip-ups, but those same errors can cost you when you’re really having to work for bites. Field and Stream‘s Dave Wolak recounts five common bass-fishing mistakes and how you can fix them.

“The thread I’ve noticed that ties many common bass fishing foibles together is poor concentration-keeping practices during the mundane, monotonous times when the action isn’t hot. It’s easy to be on your A game when the bass are biting with regularity, but it’s just as easy to lose focus when it’s slow, which often causes you to screw up during those explosive moments peppered among the doldrums.”
