You Canít Pattern Bass
The black bass, either the large- or small-mouth, is one of the most erratic of game fishes. Bass fishermen of long experience generally come to the Bass Habits conclusion that, no matter how well acquainted one may be with the waters fished and the customary habits and habitats of the bass therein, it is impossible for one to forecast with any certainty where the bass may be found or what sort of food or bait they may at any time prefer. In general bass habits are in great measure a matter of locality. Not only will a bass taken from a certain lake differ appreciably in coloration, and sometimes slightly in formation, from one taken from a lake closely adjacent, but in the contrasted waters the habits of the fish will differ considerably. As above suggested you cannot do better, when about to fish new waters, than to rely upon the guidance of a resident angler. It is possible that you may know more about bass fishing than he does, but he will know more about the bass in that particular lake than do you.
