I think that bass are so popular because they put up a huge fight. Even a 1 lb. bass feels like a trophy, and you never know how big it is until you pull it into the boat.

Fishing in July is kind of a tough time for bass. You don't want to fish too deep, and try to fish cover and in the shade. Plastic worms are a very good choice. Use a plastic worm carolina rigged for open water cover. The texas rig also works good and a Slug-go lure works when fishing weed lines. Many people try using jig-and-pig combos, as well as weedless tube jigs and spinnerbaits. And most important of all, fish slow and try to reach all the cover you can.
Spinnerbaits work very good for bass all year around. Bass move in shallow in the spring, so you will find them near cover or just out in shallow open water. In Spring look for riprap, root beds, fallen trees, boat docks, stumps, flooded brush, and rock beds. On sunny days bright colors work best, like chartuse, red, and white. When it is dark and it looks like it will rain try using dark colors like dark blue, purple, brown and black. Bass often spook easily so when you feel that the bass are skiddish try using copper or gold, because silver puts out too much flash. Single spinner baits put out more vibrations than double blade, but the double blades put out more flash for when bass are very active. When you are looking for big bass try adding skirts and tails. The kinds of spinner blades also plays an important role. Colorado blades spin quickly and they require less action to move the blade.
