Largemouth Bass Fishing With Monster Worms

By Scott R

Big bass love to try and get their mouths around gigantic creations. Some like to finesse big fish, and outdoors magazines are often filled with "Micro lures for Giant Bass" articles. We are they kidding, big fish like to eat big lures, these articles are just filling space for their advertisers. Sure, big fish will attack small lures if it's the only lure in the water, but they much prefer attempting to maul a meal that will satisfy them instead of grazing on micro minnows.

With the internet, has come the ability of specialty bait companies to offer their wicked creations to the public without having to go through huge discount retailers. Specialty pourers have come up with some of the most incredible plastic baits ever seen in fishing history. They have no strict profit margins, they are beholden to no shareholders, and thus they are allowed to be creative. And the common fisherman can actually get their hands on some truly innovative baits.

A fisherman can pretty much get his hands on any bait his imagination can conjure up. Giant frogs, snakes, lizards, salamanders, and the wonderful creature baits. And, importantly, when you buy from independent individuals, the the prices are actually reasonable.

Now, with the competition of the internet, prices are driven down-way down. Paying 5 bucks for 5 pathetic looking plastics worms because it's the only choice in the store is gone. Manufacturers of over priced plastic junk actually have to do some market research these days to keep customers. Take advantage of all the internet tackle makers and make your fishing more enjoyable.

Fly Fishing at Night For Brown Trout - the Ultimate Secret For Small Stream Beasts

By Scott R

The biggest brown trout have always been nocturnal. And eventually a fly fisherman enters his big fish phase, after he exits the catch as many fish as I can phase. For a short time, the fly man will beat the waters in search of his monster during the day, until he realizes that he can not seem to get a fish over the 18 inch mark on any of his creations while the sun is still out.

On Western streams, big browns are not exactly hard to come by, but in the more earthly locations that most people are forced to fish, slob browns are very difficult to come by. A fish breaking 20 inches is quite an accomplishment, especially on a fly. So while a wooly bugger on a size 4 hook might land a 20 incher in the west, in most places with poor water quality and tons of fishing pressure, big trout look for considerably bigger meals, and to catch them, you need to beef up your offerings considerably.

In small, deep streams that get a decent amount of fishing pressure, night fishing with big flies is often the only way you are going to see a fish over 18 inches. Letting a fly sink is often impossible in snag infested streams at night. The only option is to get a fly that rides the surface or slightly below the surface. A hand tied fly on a size 1 or 2 hook is perfect for the job. Considering you will be night fishing, there is no need to get pretty with the tying. Simply tying a gob of deer hair near the eye of the hook to create a wing effect that floats on or slightly under the surface is all you need to make an amazing night brown trout fly
