Baits for Bass Fishing
As noted above the present tendency of anglers in the matter of baits for bass is to use artificial ones almost entirely. There are a great many of these baits on me market but only a few of them are either practical or sportsmanlike. The beginner at bait-casting will do well to use one of the floating baits; when he gets into trouble with the reel, as he most assuredly will, the bait will not go to the bottom with the probability of getting fast when the angler is picking out the tangle. The floating baits induce a great many strikes. Personally I use a small buck tail spoon a great deal, and the small spinners fitted with single-hook bass flies are very satisfactory; with these last a quarter-ounce dipsey sinker should be used. Pork-rind baits are usually very successful and these the angler may cut himself or they may be had in preserved form from the tackle dealers. The pork-rind bait is best used on a small white enameled spoon. The various artificial minnows are much used and very successful lures for bait-casting.
