Improving Your Reach: Maximizing Your Casting Distance

By Ben Team

Even if you’re not catching fish, there’s something satisfying about slinging a lure 40 yards across the water with a flick of your wrist. But learning to cast farther is also a skill that will help you put more fish in the boat.  A longer cast not only helps get your lure in front of more fish; more importantly, it lets you keep your boat or your feet farther away from the target zone, dramatically reducing the risk that you’ll spook the fish.

Setting the Hook

Hook Setting: Sweep It, Snap It or Start Reeling

By Ben Team

It’s the moment of truth.

You’ve dragged your Texas-rig across the same point three times with no takers.  But on the fourth pass, you feel the distinctive tap-tap, signifying that you’ve just fooled your fish.  Somewhere in the murky green water below, a largemouth bass has just inhaled your lure.  Your senses lock in on rod, reel, line and water.  You tighten your grip and get ready to claim your prize.

But as we’ve all learned, often painfully, you aren’t home free just yet. Continue reading Setting the Hook

Bass Anglers and Inline Spinnerbaits: A Love-Hate Relationship

Weighing the Pros and Cons of These Classic Lures

By Ben Team

Many lures have a narrow range of efficacy.  Floating frogs, for example, are often extremely productive for catching black bass, but they are unlikely to fill your stringer with crappies, bluegill or catfish.

By contrast, other lures catch virtually anything that swims.  Inline spinnerbaits are a great example.  Perhaps most commonly used to elicit strikes from cold-water species like trout and salmon, they also catch stripers, walleyes, perch, pike, muskies and other warm water fish.  They even work for saltwater species.
