There is seriously 1 bait that can catch fish no matter if you’re fishing a lake, bank fishing, even spillway fishing. It is probably one of the most versatile soft plastic lures ever created for fishing and this weeks video theme is back to basics so we are going to break down 4 techniques you can use with a Senko style fishing lures. If I were to have one soft plastic worm in my boat for late winter and early spring fishing this would be it. I think as anglers sometimes we forget how versatile it is and all the rigging and technique options you have to fish them. In this video we go through the Texas Rig, wacky rig, ned rig, and weightless Texas Rig.
Should I be banned from fishing? I’m getting spoiled by mega bags bass fishing in Florida. We almost caught 40lbs fishing a crankbait and now we came out today and had to slow down and throw a neko rig and ned rig but still caught 5 fishing pushing 30lbs – absolute insane mega bag. It was an interesting example though of how you have to adapt daily to different fishing conditions and bass that are just in different feeding moods every time you go to the lake. The fish would not react to the crankbait like I wanted them too and I turned to fishing soft plastic worm rigs insanely slow over hard bottom like shell and sand. Another amazing day on the water in Florida!
Last year around this time we went flipping and punching on Lake Rousseau with Glenn Browne to shoot an OG challenge fishing video. Of course the master of flipping beat me and Chris from 44 Tackle! So on my way back home I stopped at the bait shop and headed out to Lake Rousseau to pay homage to the master of punching who is sadly no longer with us with a good buddy and mentor of mine Sean Blucher. Sean is a big fish master himself and loves to flip and punch heavy cover as much as I do for bass! Sadly what we found is the FWC had done some environmental herbicide treatments and destroyed the bass ecosystem just as it was beginning to thrive.
There are a few fishing lures that I have supreme confidence in when fishing for 10 pound plus bass on some of the trophy fishing lakes in Florida. They are big reaction style baits – a magnum crankbait, a magnum spoon, and a custom swimbait. I’ve had more success catching monster bass on these baits than almost any other reaction style fishing lures. We got though some tips to fishing them, why these lures catch big bass, and some of my favorite fishing video clips using these lures out on the lake. What’s your go to lure for catching monster bass?
You want to know how I store 1000 fishing lures, fishing rods, and fishing tackle I need to fish the southeast? This boat walk through highlights some changes, upgrades, cam mods, and the most epic fishing lure storage and tips going in to 2020. An updated boat walk thru showing how I try to keep the baits that I need, the power that I need, and the vids that you love flowing by modding my bass boat. We talk about my Battle Born Lithium Batteries and why it’s worth taking the leap. Also have a new Yolotek camera mod I built inspired by my old design as well as seeing how Flukemaster had his boat set up while I was on Lake Chickamauga. Finally the most important part how do you stay organized with so much fishing gear when you’re travelling – I got a few cool solutions to make your bass boat more efficient on the road.
It’s winter, the water is cold, but the lake is fishing INSANE!!! We caught 2 massive bass using 2 lures I love to fish when it comes to winter and they provide a perfect cold weather pattern to cover fish that get tight to cover as well as those that suspend. Both baits trigger fish into biting which is key when the water gets extremely clear and cold. Crankbaits and swimbaits along with a jerkbait are my go to’s when water temps drop into the 50’s. The spinnerbait comes in handy too as a more compact rig that I can throw around cover. We targeted creeks and pockets with hard bottom such as rocks as well as pockets with downed trees on the bank that stuck out into the water and provided a place for fish to suspend near as well as holding shad and other baitfish.
I like tournament fishing but when you see a bass fishing tournament devastate and destroy a lake like this it’s a trigger. Taking care of fish is very important in our sport because it means we can continue to enjoy the lakes and places we love to spend time so when you see fish wasting away at a boat ramp like this I’m disgusted. On a happier note I caught over 30lbs of bass – including 3 7 pounders on consective casts with a giant crankbait! Don’t miss the double up giant that comes off right next to the boat – probably would’ve been my PB but who knows. Key to catching fish was finding isolated structure using my C Map and scanning it with my HDS Live to look for just a couple bass and then fishing for micro schools of 2-4 fish. It was all a reaction bite – tossing a giant crankbait like the Strike King 10xd on 12lbs flourocarbon and grinding on the bottom!
I like fishing a spinnerbaiit but nobody knows more about it than JT Kenney so I had him talk about some cold water winter fishing techniques with a spinnerbait and chatterbait while we were on Lake Guntersville. I never knew about the weight trick with spinnerbaits to DIY Mod your own mini blade bait which is pretty cool along with some other awesome tips JT lays out for catching more fish on blade baits in the cold water fishing season.
We went to Lake Guntersville to go fishing and stopped at GTO and Paul the owner revealed to us the most realistic fishing lure I have ever seen! It is a jig angler’s dream when it comes to crawfish!!! Paul also gave us a winter fishing report of the lake and recommended some fishing lures and baits including Alabama Rigs, jigs, and swimbaits to use to catch big bass in cold water. We went out fishing and used some of Paul’s tips but ended up having to get insanely finesse to catch fish using a Mega Bass Vision 110 jerkbait around points and in creek pockets where we found bait balls and shad.
