Bass Fishing is very popular activity of angling for the black bass or the North American gamefish. Several black bass species are considered as gamefish, such as Spotted bass (Kentucky bass), Guadalupe bass, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass etc. The bass fishing as a sport has its beginnings in the late 19th century and it  has been changing drastically since that time.

Bass fishing had been formally established as a sport by the early 20th century. Generally, bass fish anglers use spinning tackle or bait casting, with either live bait or artificial lures.

Black bass fish are known to be strong fighters and they can be found in lakes, rivers, reservoires, creeks depending upon species and numerous factors such as food availability and water quality. Smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomieui) tends to jump more and is a very aggressive fighter on the water surface in order to throw the hook away. Largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) has great over-all resistance and size and it favors powerful short runs to escape when hooked. Black bass can smell any foreign scent, because they are scent predators, and that is why it is recommended not to use some chemicals and to contaminate line, reels, artificial baits. Bass fish are visual predators as well. Fishing is not an exact science, as we all are aware, but there are some bass fishing techniques that are useful and helpful in catching a fish.
