Now that you’re aware one of the most important bass fishing tips, you’ll have it easier if you’re told that basses are game for ‘red herrings’. That is just a literary expression meaning diverting attention from the real issue and misleading an individual. Basses are readily misled into believing that the bait or prey is injured if the same has a reddish hue. So, when you move to shallow areas inside a glade or wood, make sure to dangle the bait with a red hook. If basses happen to be swarming in the area, surely some will bite the bait hook, bass lures, and sinker.
