Bass Fishing Equipment

Bass fishing equipment is too costly to not buy the right rod, reels, fishing line and other fishing supplies the first time. 
What is the best and again, more importantly, the right bass fishing equipment to purchase? What works to land the bass hog? 
With so many types of equipment to choose from when you walk the aisles at the store, it is easy to stand there scratching your head as you try to make a decision. 

Proper bass fishing equipment landed this hogI am out to make it easy for you with the bass fishing equipment section of my website.

You'll find articles about existing equipment I personally use now and future articles will be about new products on the market that helped me land the trophy bass.

Be sure to add my web site as a favorite to keep up with what really works on the lake.

Knowing first hand the cost involved in enjoying the great hobby of pursuing the bass hog, my articles also include tips to maintain your reels, rods and other equipment used for fishing. 

What can you learn from my fishing equipment articles listed below?

  • How to properly operate baitcaster and open face spinning reel 
  • Why fishing line comes off in circles from the reel when using open faced reels 
  • Why the bail ball bearing wears out prematurely 
  • What happens if you leave the drag on after finishing fishing for the day 
  • The proper way to store fishing rods 
One tip or recommendation alone could possibly save you some big bucks, definitely some big headaches or may even help you land a record breaking bass. 
I live to be on the lake and love sharing my knowledge of bass fishing with you. 
Remember to Take A Kid Fishing, Senior Citizen, or a physically challenged person out for a day on the lake. 
You'll be glad you did! 
Keep the Hooks Wet!
