Part 1: Understanding Bass Behavior
ANGLR Expert Jonathan Dietz takes you through everything you’ve ever wanted to know about bass behavior. He dives into how they’re affected by the weather and what motivates them before getting into what types of food they eat, which can help you to choose which type of bait to throw. He finishes off with some notes on figuring out when the best time to hit the water may be.
Part 2: Bass Fishing Gear Basics
In this section, Dietz takes us into what a bass anglers tackle box should hold. He details how to choose your rods, reels, and configure your setups and talks about not only choosing your hooks, but how to keep them functional and effective for a long time to come. Dietz goes into detail about terminal tackle; from how to choose and care for your hooks through choosing bait heads.
Part 3: Basic Lures, Baits, and Rigs
This section contains a vast array of content on every type of bait you could possibly need on your line when getting started bassin’. This section is vast and takes you through seven categories of baits, lures, and rigs, giving you a huge advantage over most anglers. All you need to know about jigs, topwater, rigs, spinnerbaits and chatterbaits, hard baits, swim baits, and soft plastics.
Part 4: Where to Fish For Bass
No matter where you decide to fish, Dietz is able to take you through how to find the right location of those fish in ponds, lakes, rives, and tidal fisheries. He teaches you how to break down the water and find where the forage is. He even gives you the skills you need to fish in challenging rivers and the knowledge you need to find success.
Part 5: Flipping vs. Pitching
These two techniques, though often confused with each other, should be a staple in every angler’s arsenal. Dietz dives into how you can master these two techniques.
Part 6: Bass Fishing Jigs
This is a section so massive, it needed its own space. Since jigs aren’t just for large mouths, every bass angler should have a familiarity with these jigs: flipping jigs, structure jigs, swim jigs, skipping jigs, and finesse jigs.
Part 7: Bass Spawning and Activity
We round out this series with Dietz giving you a lesson in bass activity throughout the year. He takes you through movement from the wintering pattern into pre-spawn, and then through a variety of spawns that may occur, dictating the bass activity for the rest of the year.
Bass Fishing Tips and Tactics Series
Not to be outdone by the exhaustive beginner series, Bass Fishing Tips and Tactics Series is an ever-expanding section dedicated to the more serious angler. Here is where you can turn when you’re ready to get down-and-dirty, nitty-gritty, delving deep into specific aspects of bass fishing.
For instance, in the section on Chatterbait: Master the Vibrating Jig, ANGLR Expert, Shaye Baker dives deep into an expert tutorial on these bladed jigs, from choosing a jig to matching your gear to your needs.
