It feels like cheating to catch bass on Lake Okeechobee with a topwater frog like this! I’m practicing for a big fishing tournament on the lake and this is the first of a few vids capturing the experience running up to tournament day. Pre fishing, looking for bass, testing lures, it’s all here and today was an insane start! The frog fishing was on fire! I even caught a HUGE bass on my modified mag ned rig casting to sticks and isolated cover in a super shallow bay on the lake. These are all just pieces of the puzzle for anglers and the process is about building confidence and executing on tournament day – catching the right bass to take away the win! Aside from all that tournament fishing provides a great sense of community and you get to meet the diversity of anglers on the water, learning throughout the entire process.

Fishing for bass is a contact sport on Lake Okeechobee and sometimes you end up bleeding from injuries – especially when you punching for bass! Well that’s what happened to poor Bass Quest when grabbing a 7+lbs Lake Okeechobee bass that I had punched out of heavy cover and he ended up bleeding all over the place! In summer you can’t beat targeting heavy cover using the pitching technique to present fishing lures to fish setup in water around heavy cover. When it comes to fishing techniques it’s one of my favorite and it’s such an intensely INSANE way to catch fish on any lake.

Sorry Bass Quest for making you bleed!!!

Key fishing lures were a punching rig with a Hawg Tech Tungsten weight and a Gambler 4″ Flippn Tube paired up with a 5/0 Owner Hook.

I didn’t cheat but this wasn’t supposed to be a bass fishing challenge with a spoon! I forgot all my soft plastic lures for offshore fishing so this turned into a hardbait challenge fishing for bass in summer! Which turned out INSANE since we landed over 30lbs of bass – MEGABAG and caught a 9lbs 9oz fish and my PB on a Nichols Ben Parker Spoon an 11lbs 6oz bass – HUGE! Summer can be a great time to fish for bass with hard baits since the lake water is super warm in Florida and fish metabolism is up. Reaction style lures tend to shine in that situation. Because these fish were suspended – up off the bottom – the spoon lure was perfect since it reaches higher in the water column and we were able to target the schooling fish – the lasagna – we were seeing on the sonar!

The fishing road trip is wrapped up and now it’s time to break down the patterns, baits, as well as the rod and reel arsenal we used to catch smallmouth bass up in Michigan! The pattern highlights really focused on 2 different baits, a jerkbait and a Ned Rig. I caught my PB smallie on the jerkbait right off the bait but when fishing Lake Huron got super close to beating it fishing the Ned Rig. These are a different class of smallmouth bass and triggering bigger bites was key in making this an epic trip. The break down and recap on techniques and everything we did and figured out when it came to fishing these giant spring smallmouth bass is layed out in the video. Hope it helps someone making the trip to the lake searching for the right rods, reels, and tackle for capturing giant smallmouth bass.

I fish for bass in Florida and shoot video of my time out on the lake whenever I go out. I’ve captured tons of giant fish with my GoPro and post my edits every week on YouTube. I go fishing on many lakes like Lake Okeechobee, Rodman Reservoir, Lake Rousseau, Lake Kissimmee, Lake Toho and more. My goal is to capture my experience on video to help other anglers pursue fish on their home waters all over the country. I love punching mats, flipping, fishing offshore, and throwing big swimbaits but also enjoy more finesse fishing as well like drop shotting, jig fishing, Neko rigs…if bass bite it, I want to have it tied on to my rod and reel. Find all products used in the videos at http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/?from=mkfish

fishing for bass, bass fishing, flipping, punching, outdoors, florida bass, heavy cover, big bass, tournaments, tips, techniques, how to – all about fishing.

I always share secrets and YouTuber Bass Quest threw down on some advanced lipless crankbait fishing. One of bass fishing’s oldest lures, a lipless crankbait can catch them anywhere and at anytime. The key though is the style of bait your fishing and technique you’re using to fish it. Bass Quest runs through all the details he looks at in lure choice and lays out what he uses to catch bass all year round.

We also continue our road trip fishing trip in Michigan with a fish fry and hang out with 2nd place finisher in the Uploaded Fishing bass boat competition.

Prep for the 2nd day of smallmouth bass fishing and what will become my best day of smallie fishing ever with 2 great YouTube anglers!

My first ever Michigan smallmouth fishing ULTRA CLEAR natural lakes on my fishing road trip to the north!!! Big thanks to YouTuber Benjamin Nowak for making this happen – it was a grind but that’s what makes fishing for bass such a passionate and emotional sport! Keys for the day were fishing hard baits rip baits however my first ever ULTRA CLEAR lake bass was caught on a Ned Rig right at the end of the day. It’s finally spring in Michigan and these fish are a pre spawn and staging to spawn mode.

Stay tuned for some advanced Lipless Crankbait tips from YouTuber Bass Quest and then day 2 of the #SeekingBronze tour which will turn out INSANE!
