    Yikes.where to start? What are you fishing for, where are you fishing? But the bait of choice for bass last year was Powerbait 6" worms colored tequila sunrise. I never caught so many bass in my life as I did last year.

    a pretty general good setup is a trick worm texas rig. i like pumpkin with chartreuse tip. berkley smooth cast is a good line. can't go wrong with an ugly stik rod. reels you could go on and on and on about whats best and what works for everyone. if you only can have one i would recommend a shimano spinning reel

    For a beginner I wouldn't spend alot of money for top quality expensive equipment. An inexpensive rod & spinning reel combo from walmart will do. I like the medium heavy rods. 10-12 flourocarbon line is a good starting point for bass. Check Bass pro in Macon for any free classes. You can learn alot from those. Last week I took a crappie class. I know the bass pro in Lawrenceville is having a spring bass class march 12th @2pm.

    Depending on the lakes you fish & the color of the water. Makes a difference on the lure color. For muddy lakes, like sinclair. Anything in chartruese or white is best. For clear lakes, watermelon seed or white worked best for me. 3/8 oz Spinnerbaits on windy days.
    There are so many lures for different situations & seasons. The best thing is to fish with an experienced friend or go with a lake guide. Then there is also lots of info on the web.
    Try havefunfishing.com as a starting point. Or another board I'm a member on devoted to fishing. Bassboatmagazine.com

    I just upgraded my fishing rod to a Carrot Stix and by far the lightest most perfect rod i have seen ever. Plus it has a lifetime warranty. Bought it on Ebay for 75 bucks. Just picked up a Penn real to company with it.... :D

    It's something you see alot on the Bass Tourney's on ESPN. The rods will be orange in color. If you have a Bass Pro shop around check em out or see em on the net.......very nice quality........
