How to catch bass: locate largemouth bass habitat


If you want to learn how to catch bass, the first thing you need to know is how to locate the ideal habitat for this warm water fish species. Largemouth bass prefer shallower areas of freshwater ponds, lakes, reservoirs, and slow-moving rivers that have some type of cover in the form of vegetation, brush, trees, or structure.


One of the key largemouth bass fishing tips to remember is that you will most often find these fish close to cover. Regardless of whether you are fishing from the shoreline or from a boat, try to locate any submerged trees, vegetation, docks, bridges, or changes in bottom depth. Just as when learning how to fish for any other species, finding spots that offer cover or structure is a good first step.
