When you begin to have more bites in the area you are fishing, you might want to increase the lure size so that you can attract bigger fish in the area. The bigger fish will be able to take larger bait so you will attract them the most.
Worms can easily slip off your hook when you cast or when a fish nibbles, so you need to ensure that the worm is secured on the hook correctly. Fish are far more likely to be attracted to and eat bait that is threaded properly. You also want to use smaller hooks when you can.
When fishing for bass, it is best to do so late at night or first thing in the morning. These are times when bass are out to do feeding. Overcast days may cause feeding all day, so keep that in mind also.
Bury the parts of the fish you don't want to eat to keep the smell away from camp or your garbage. Just be warned that if you have a digging pet, this solution could turn into a bigger problem when your dog or cat becomes very curious about your yard.
