Real fishing at it’s finest crushing post spawn bass out fishing a local lake! When the pieces come together during the post spawn bass fishing can be epic! They did today not getting a lot of bites but getting the right fish to eat the crankbait and, as you’ll see in part 2, the mag ned rig. All culminating in a 30+lbs megabag. The post spawn usually crushes anglers but it’s one of those bizarre times of year that can group fish up who really need to eat following the spawning period. Focusing on the 2 ends of the spectrum – reaction strike type baits and super slow dragging lures seems to be key this time of year in coaxing big bass to commit. Make sure to tune in for part 2 coming next week when we break a dirty 30 in the new boat for the first time!!!!!

Some simple strategies for pre fishing Lake Okeechobee when targeting bass for a tournament. I’ll be fishing the RMMC tournament on Lake Okeechobee in a couple weeks so here are a couple ways I get started pre fishing when I can’t be on the water looking for bass. 2 awesome resources are Google Maps and Water Level graphs. They can tell you a whole bunch about the lake before you even start fishing it. Especially for guys like us that work during the week, getting a jump start on pre fishing and tournament prep is huge and all it takes is an internet connection and a computer!

Fishing for bass on the weekend – especially on a popular river – means you’re going to have to deal with jet skis and total douche bags on the water. Still think it’s CRAZY how this jet ski cut me off running full wake thru a back water area – NOT SAFE!!!!!! That said we caught some bass targeting a local river in a high pressure period with a bunch of leisure boaters out. Goes to show fish will bite all the time just have work for it. Revealed a few fun techniques and tips here to focus on when heading to a local river to fish for bass!

The new Bass Boat is getting some final touches and I made the best decision yet mounting Transducer Shield brackets for my trolling motor and transom Lowrance transducers. There’s also a bonus install of the Grass Deflector and Grass Shredder. We walk through how to install the Transducer Shield accessories I purchased for the new bass boat. Just trying to make this thing as perfect as I can possibly afford and these graph brackets are the best mounts available for my transducer mounts.

Real Fishing, YouTube, grassroots bass anglers, weekend warriors – has the fishing industry got on board? Why does it seem that the industry HATES this class of anglers. I’ve been been shooting videos for years and it still seems to me like there is a disconnect even a hateful relationship between the fishing industry and those of us average people creating content, fishing the tackle and equipment, and creating an alternative media to the mainstream tournament scene that has been the industry tradition. Real fishing is happening every day – from a bank, from a boat, from a kayak – maybe the word hate is an overstatement but there’s definitely a sense that we’re looked down upon – even though what we’re doing is highlighting real fishing in real time. The Googan Squad and guys like Andrew Flair are perfect examples of this. He’s been able to tap into an audience of anglers that has been totally neglected by the fishing industry. Even now, that audience seems to be disregarded even though its obviously starving for real fishing content – as well as the fact that these are the anglers that will form the fishing scene 10 years from now!

What’s you’re opinion – where are we at when it comes to fishing and the fishing industry? Is it diverging, is it coming together, is it just going to get even more segmented and specialized? Throw your comments below!

Crush some late spawning bass with this pattern fishing Lake Okeechobee or just about anywhere. We run thru a day of fishing for bass on the Big O targeting late spawning fish with a crazy jig and stick bait rig as well as a chatterbait in super shallow water. These are some fishing tips and techniques you can use fishing in spring for bass staging and spawning in and around shallow heavy cover. And we got to do a subscriber meetup with James who is fishing a high school fishing tournament on Lake Okeechobee!
