In this video I talk about the only lure you need for fall bass fishing – a classic soft plastic bait on par in OG status with a plastic worm. The soft plastic jerk bait looks just like a bait fish and you can fish it deep, shallow, around grass – basically anywhere. I go over how to rig up a soft plastic jerk bait, how to fish it, what rod and reel to use as well as a lure mode for jerkbait fishing.

In this video we capture a fish eating a fishing lure in real time on my Lowrance HDS LIVE using forward facing sonar. You can see the bait go down underwater to the fish and the bass swim down and eat the lure!!! I also show you how to fish a bait vertically with a spinning rod below the boat.

In this video I catch a GIANT bass using a finesse fishing technique on a spinning rod – one crazy fight and teetered on the edge of scary! I was using a drop shot rig on a spinning or spin cast rod and reel with a small soft plastic worm (finesse).

Don’t ever fish for bass in summer with trying a jig. It’s a great fishing technique for ledge fishing and offshore summer bass to mimic forage like shad and other bait fish that move to deeper water during summer for more oxygen, cooler water, as well as in reaction to fishing pressure in clear water. There is no right or wrong way to fish a jig. I have a couple rod and reel retrieves I use all the time that seem to trigger fish on any lake. In this video we talk about how to fish a jigs, how to make your own jig skirt, and other fishing lure mods to catch more fish.

Is this cheating or fishing? Many anglers go back and forth when it comes to catching bass out deep. In this video I show you how to use your electronics to find and catch fish out deep on brushpiles. We also go through fishing rod and reels setups as well as what lures catch bass when fishing deep water structure (crankbaits, hair jigs, jigs, drop shot, ned rig, swimbait, etc).

If you don’t do this with a chatterbait when fishing for bass, you might be missing out on catching fish. In this video we go over some chatterbait modifications, chatterbait tips, as well as some chatterbait techniques for catching bass in summer. We also talk about the best chatterbait trailers for fishing bladed jigs around cover and why this lure is probably the most important fishing lure of the last 15 years.
