Black Bass-Hook and Lure-What is the best way to catch black bass with hook and line? What bait do they generally take best? Is the “fish luring bait” advertised any good?
If there is any one way that is better than all others for taking this fish with hook and line it is with a live minnow, a shiner. The minnow is hooked through the lips, inserting the hook in the lower lip, underside and passing it out through the nostril. A snelled hook, about No. 1 or 1/0 is used, and a small swivel is tied between the snell and line, and the bait is cast to the place where the fish is supposed to be, allowed to sink and dart a bit, then slowly drawn in, pausing occasionally.
