Bass fishing tips

The first tip for better bass fishing is to use fishing line that's as light as you can. Many bass anglers tend to use fishing line that's much too heavy. I realize that if you fish for bass in heavy cover heavier line is necessary, but in most bass fishing situations it's not. For example, did you know that 8 pound test monofilament fishing line can hold 8 pounds of dead weight without breaking at its weakest point? This doesn't take into account the bend of the rod and the drag of the reel, which both take pressure off of the fishing line as well.
