You're straining for a glimpse of it, or a hint of one of those hidden places where you know it might lurk, hiding among the weeds and outcrops, perfectly blended into its surroundings among the rotting tree stumps, as still as a rock, waiting and watching for prey. But you're not just looking for any bass. It's the monster, the giant, the tackle-buster, the solitary, the elusive, or the unattainable, it's the unrealizable dream that you carry out and return home with everyday you spend on the water....Bass fishing is a passion for millions for fishermen. Their pursuit for these powerful freshwater predators spans North America and takes place year-round.
