Physics of Bass Fishing



In the sport of bass fishing there is a lot of physics that are taking place. First of all when you even start your expedition to catch a fish you must cast your rod. This is a small kinematics problem because you have to make your hook travel a distance that you have already pre-decided. This is a kinematics problem because not only is your hook traveling a vertical distance but a horizontal distance. While trying to travel the vertical distance you must go against the force of gravity. Then once you have your hook cast out you begin the waiting game for a bite. Once you have a bite and have the fish on you are doing another physics problem because you must accelerate the rod the take your line back in so you can catch the fish you worked so hard for. This is how there is physics in bass fishing.
