Other Lakes in North America

There are lakes all over North America that offer some of the best Bass Fishing and like I had mentioned in another article if you get a chance to visit Lake Fork in Texas, I can tell you the last part of February thru the end of March is the prime time to hit that lake for some outstanding Florida Strain Bass. 

Mexico is reporting catching the largest day I will make it down south the catch a few 13 and 14 pounders. 

If you have a great bass lake in your area, let me know and I'll list it on my Lakes to Bass Fish page. 

Fishing Private Lakes and Ponds

If you find a lake in your area that is owned by a land owner sometimes if you're real nice and explain to him you would like to be able to fish his lake in return for helping him with the up keep of the lake they will let you. 

Ask him then if he wants you to return the fish that you catch back to the lake, or remove a few small ones for supper that night, even go as far as to offer the land owner if he would like some fish that you catch and clean for him. 

A little kindness can go along way. Always respect his wishes and never leave any trash when you're done and that includes fishing line. I can not tell you how many times I have walked around a lake and get all tangled up in someone's mess that they have left on the ground. 

I carry a small kitchen bag with me to pick up the trash as I come up on it. Believe me, the land owner will be watching you and that alone impresses the land owner. 

One rule to stick with if he will give you a written permission slip that is for you and you only to fish his lake, don't show up with your whole neighborhood the next day to fish. 

The only things that I ask are Please practice Catch and Release and do the following when bass fishing. 
Take a picture and measure the fish length wise and around the belly then turn it loose for another battle another day. I have seen replicas made from the picture taken that look better than the real fish. 

Keep The Hooks Wet!
