Best Tackle for Large-mouth bass fishing

Recommended Posts

I'm using a Nero 12'10 rod with a Prima 2000 reel...really cant afford much else right now... (just managed to catch my biggest fish...16 lb flathead catfish on small minnows) Didn't have the license to keep it. I am in the Neherrin River to try and make some money up.

Really not sure what hook to use- from what I've seen, people have used a #2, #3/0, and a 4...but I seem to be just catching white crappies more than anything. Unsure if lines mean much besides higher weight of fish, but using an X-series Mono .02 at the moment. 


Not sure what gear/tackle I should be going for right now, traveling to other places is quite expensive.  I would like to get the hang of catching largemouth bass before moving on to another area.  Currently level 19.

Oh and I can't use spoons/jigs (any tackle that makes you stop and go) if my life depended on it..I can't get that technique down.

To perform Stop & Go (on the PC), cast the lure, allow to sink to the bottom, reel in for 3 seconds, stop (for 1 sec), reel in for 3 seconds again, repeat. Reel in speed of 2 normally works (drop down to 1 if the lure is coming to the surface quicker than you like).
