Most reports about bass fishing mention recent weather and water conditions to help anyone who is about to visit the same area to fish. For example, water conditions may be important to ensure fishermen know what areas of a lake or a river are unsafe, if ice is present or if there are trees or debris floating around the water. Weather reports are often included to ensure safety and to give an idea of fish activity in the water, as fish moves to different water depths depending on external weather conditions.

Water temperature can have a big impact on the way groups of bass move in the water, so this is generally included in fishing reports. Many fishermen mention locations where fish was observed and give tips on the best type of equipment to use in specific areas. In some cases, reports also include historical data from previous years that some fishermen try to interpret to forecast fish movements and availability in the same area for the current year.
