I'm a novice who fishes for largemouth bass on lakes in Frontenac County, Ontario. I use a worm, large single-hook, and a large round red/white bobber from a dock.
Unfortunately, even with the large hook, I end up catching lots of small panfish. I would prefer to avoid catching panfish unnecessarily, and instead only catch larger fish, such as largemouth bass (example photo here).
Is there a way to avoid catching small panfish -- and instead only hook larger fish, such as largemouth bass?
