When is the best time to go bass fishing?

Author: Captain Steve Boyd | Posted: 09/30/2008

A bass is not a habitual creature that consistently runs the same pattern day in and day out because his world is not consistent. It's ever changing with differing weather patterns, influence from man and Season. Quite simply a bass is the most adaptive creature we pursue which requires us to be even more willing to adapt.

For the most part your specific body of water will dictate when is the best time to go fishing based on certain factors that influence bass behavior. Water clarity, depth of the lake, amount of vegetation, amount of vegetation or what type of structure is in the lake and finally if it is man made or a natural lake. It is important for us to consider all of these details because our prey the bass has to do this in order to feed and survive.

What is also important to consider is that while a bass may not be feeding it does not mean we cannot entice him into eating our lure. Many people catch the biggest bass right in the middle of the day when most anglers have stopped fishing for the day and gone home. How willing you are to adapt just as the bass do will determine whether or not you will continue to catch fish when others give up.

In the end their really is no best time to go bass fishing because we all want to get out there before the sun comes up and none of us wants to leave! So get out there and go fishing and remember. If you are not getting bites it doesn't mean the bass aren't there, it just means they are waiting for you to show them something they are interested in!
