Why target fishing for bass? Pete Gluszek and Mike Iaconelli talk about the excitement of fishing in general, but why they have a passion for bass fishing. Bass are almost everywhere in the US, so it's accessible. Also, a bass is a very exciting fish to catch, they're aggressive, they often jump out of the water, and are likely to bite artificial baits. Nothing beats the excitement of fooling a bass into biting a piece of plastic!
