LEARN ABOUT BANK FISHING FOR BASS (REALITY VS FANTASY)

One of the most important things you’ll learn from me is the reality of Bass Fishing from the Bank and how many Youtube Videos make Bass Fishing look like a Fairy Tale.  Realistic Fishing is here to remind you that it’s not. I’ve seen how this trend can really deter a lot of people who are new to fishing – especially kids from wanting to continue. 

It’s important to remember that most creators choose the best parts of their fishing trip or trips to form a single ideal fishing trip. Often times what you see has been scrubbed to make it appear easier than it is. Using B-roll and those dope beats, busting out some pranks and stunts are all there to add life to an otherwise uneventful experience.

If you have a real love for fishing and a desire to learn, and if you can make it through the tangles, snags, snapped lines, lost fish, biting bugs, fees, laws and rules, etc., then you just might learn to catch bass from the bank. Fairy Tale fishing puts a lot of attention on success, but it doesn’t reflect what a typical fisherman will experience. Learning anything can be a GRIND. Most Youtube fishermen don’t make it to the top but if they love fishing first, and practice practice practice then everyone can learn from their fishing skill and not their editing magic.

BASS FISHING FROM THE BANK FAQs

There are easy and affordable ways for anyone, especially beginners, to start bass fishing. First of all, start simple. Fishing with simple fishing rigs is the best place to start. Something as easy as a hook and a worm can catch a bass.

It helps to be familiar with the area you are fishing – one way to do that is to continue fishing in the same area until you feel comfortable.

You may also find inspiration from beginner bass fishing videos like this:


Everyone knows about plastic worms and spinnerbaits but depending on where you’re fishing, other lures can be just as easy to use.

Swimbaits, crankbaits, and even crawfish can be easily learned and catch more bass. Fishing conditions determine the easiest lure for you to use. In the weeds, you want to use a weedless lure like a Texas Rig Worm. In deep clear water, something like a crankbait might be more appropriate.

Remember the conditions determine which lures would be easiest to use.


It is important to know what’s in the water where you are fishing. Are there weeds, rocks, logs or nothing at all? Bass relate to structure in the water. When fishing from the bank, focus on these areas. Docks, logs, boulders, even bushes are the features you want to focus on. Fishing around these will greatly increase your chances of catching bass.

During the spring months when the water is warming up, the bass will start the spawn. This is one of the best times of the year to catch bass because they are hungry and / or aggressive. They need food energy to reproduce. They also attack lures while defending their nests which are often close to the bank.

Fall is another great time to catch bass as they feed up before a cold winter. Bass are often chasing bait fish near the bank and can be easily caught on lures that resemble those same fish like shad, shiners, etc.
