It can be challenging to know what bass fish want.  Sometimes it's the little details that can make all the difference. Pay attention to how the bass are reacting to your lure movements... sometimes they don't even want it to move.

Changing Lure Speed is Key [VIDEO]

Figuring out how fast or slow a bass wants your lure takes some trial and error.  When searching for bass on any body of water, start fast.  I like to begin with a quicker moving presentation regardless of whether I’m using a crankbait, spinnerbait, jerkbait or jig.  You want to locate active bass if you can quickly.  The option is always there to slow down your presentation as you cover water.  Try starting fast and then slowing down a little at a time until you get a strike.  This process will help you get on fish much quicker than slowly dragging a lure around waiting for a bite.
