What do you use to catch bass in a lake?

A fishing rod is used with baits. There are several kinds bass baits used in bass fishing, and the bait you choose will depend on the time of year you're fishing, where in the water you want to fish, what the fish are currently eating, weather and time of year. You'll need to know the local law. Not all baits are allowed in all areas or at all times of year.

Live bait commonly consists of small fish, crayfish, frogs, leeches, polliwogs, salamanders and earthworms.

Hard baits are solid and made from artificial material. Top water baits skim the surface of the water. Diving baits are broken down into categories such as shallow, medium and deep diving based on the depth they dive while being reeled in. There are crank, rip, spoons, blades, jigs and many more.

Soft baits mimic the soft bodies of live bait. They are broken into categories such as tube, jerk, goby and grub. These baits are generally used to fish the bottom of a lake.

Soft plastics work very well in warm water. Some of the best are plastic worms, lizards, and crayfish imitators.

What are the best fishing lures to use for largemouth bass?

It all depends on the time of year of course and what the fish are feeding on. The best year round lure would be a black and blue 3/8 ounce jig with a black, or blue trailer. But that is for Nebraska fishing where the water is always dirty. Can't go wrong with a Texas rigged plastic worm or lizard. My other go to lure is a YUM brand Junebug (color) dinger rigged just whacky style which is just a 3/0 hook with the worm hooked one time right in the middle where it flops over both sides. Don't know why but it drives bass nuts usually on the initial fall.

I found one better than anything. Zoom Ultravibe Speedcraw, in green pumpkin color.

Texas rigged or Carolina rigged.

How do bass reproduce?

They spawn on beds. The males typically make a bed in the spring and the female lays her eggs in it. Then the male releases his sperm on the eggs and guards the bed until the eggs hatch and the fry are old enough to be on their own.
