  1. Use Your Boat’s Storage for All Your Needs Aluminum bass boats and crappie boats have plenty of storage space for all sorts of different bait and lures. Bass tend to eat different types of bait depending on what time of year it is. If you’re fishing early in the season, use peach-colored patterns in your bait. During this time of year, bass are looking for crawfish, which peach-colored bait can mimic. Tell your friends who take their welded aluminum Jon boats out in the summer or fall they should use chrome or silver baits, which mimic the shad bass are looking for. Fishing with Your Bass Boat

  2. Don’t Bother The Bass Bass are ornery fish. If you keep tapping at them with your lure, they’ll eventually attack your hook. Bass aren’t going to just swim up to your aluminum boat. They like to position themselves in cover (like seaweed or under old docks), and prefer when the lure is presented to them from various angles. You may have to stop and anchor your small fishing boat, and toss the lure into the same area 100 times before finally getting a strike. Don’t Discard Damaged Worms When your plastic worms and leeches get torn up, save them. Bass like ambushing wounded prey, so a damaged plastic worm can be the perfect bait to use, especially in shallow water. Loading up the livewell in your aluminum boat with a lot of bass is the ultimate goal.

  3. Cast Against the Wind You will lose some distance in your casts, but it’s best to fish with the wind in your face. Bass swim with the current. If you cast against the wind, they will see your bait before they see your small boat. Also, the slapping sound of the water against your hull will carry away from the area that you’re fishing. Fool the Bass with Red Lures In shallow cover – stumps, wood, clusters of grass – try using a spinner bait with a pink or red head, or a crank bait with red hooks. The red color will make the fish think the bait is alive and injured, and they will bite at it. Aluminum jon boats from Lowe Boats, Lund Boats, Princecraft Boats and Cresltiner Boats are great shallow water fishing boats.

  4. Check the Water in Your Livewell Aluminum boats with livewells give you an added advantage. Bass are notorious for spitting up whatever they’re feeding on when you place them in a livewell. With this info, you can tell what color lure or kind of lure is most likely to attract additional bass the rest of the day. The Calm Before the Storm The best time to fish for bass is before a storm front comes through. The worst time to fish for them is after a storm. The pressure of an oncoming storm makes the bass much more active, so keep an eye out for clouds moving in. If the weather is absolutely perfect, the bass are much less likely to strike at your bait.
