new to fishing. I've been a few times since I got my pole and license last month, but I've never caught anything yet. I live in Kentucky and there is NO LIMITS on Yellow Bass and everything I've read about them says they are tasty fish. I got into fishing for two reasons, for food and to keep my sanity.
So, my big question is for someone who has NO experience with knowing what a fish tugging on the end of a line feels like, and has already lost several hooks, jig baits, weights and bobbers to getting snagged in rocks and crap...what are the best types of hooks, lures, baits, weights, etc. for us noobs?
