Catching fish punching mats in Florida is one of the most epic techniques to catch big bass during the winter and spring. Punching is probably one of my favorite ways to catch fish due to the heavy grass and intensity of the bit and the fight! This is punching heavy grass unplugged following the YouTuber vs Pro challenge with Glenn Browne and former NFL player Ellis. Just some #realfishing footage with a solid tips and techniques recap that should help you catch more fish in 2019 when you target and flip heavy grass.

The key pattern was targeting points and corners where fish were stacked up but tentative to bite until they were triggered by pumping the lure under the mat or suspending it.

This was a great highlight for the Gambler #GearUp PUNCHING ESSENTIALS box featuring Glenn’s picks of the must have punching lures when fishing heavy vegetation https://bit.ly/2se5jAt

Ever wonder if Youtubers can beat pros at fishing in a punching challenge fishing tournament? The challenge is on punching for bass on Lake Rousseau against pro angler Glenn Browne and a former NFL football player Ellis vs Mikeybalzz Fishing and Chris of 44 Tackle! Punching is an awesome winter and spring technique for catching bass on their way to spawn in Florida. Heavy cover and heavy vegetation like hydrilla, milfoil, and hyacinth retain heat and offer a great hideout for fish as they stage up. Glenn is one of the masters at punching heavy cover and he used a 1.5oz tungsten weight a heavy Lews fishing rod and a new Lews fishing reel made specifically for punching spooled up with 65lbs braided fishing line.

This was an epic matchup versus some insane anglers and we had a ton of fun. The key pattern was targeting points and corners where fish were stacked up but tentative to bite until they were triggered by pumping the lure under the mat or suspending it.

I love to fish for bass on any lake with a gigantic crankbait. There’s a variety of fishing lures out there that dive deep and draw an epic reaction from fish when it goes by – and these things are pretty large, many weigh over 1 ounce. The trick is however you never know how a fishing lure will work until you actually get it out on the lake to fish for bass. What we’re going to try to do here is go through a review and break down of the #realfishing features of each one of these gigantic crankbaits – how they really fish wne you get them underwater and which ones I absolutely LOVE!

We all have rigs and fishing lures that we believe in and and always have tied up. My confidence fishing rig shows off in this video – the Mag Ned Rig and the Neko Rig are standards whenever I get on the lake. I have caught a lot of big fish as well as numbers of bass fishing these rigs and that really leads me to having the confidence that I can get a bite on them on any body of water – lake, ultra clear water, river – even outside Florida. The are both especially good fishing techniques for winter fishing down here in Florida when pre spawn bass feed to move up to spawn.

Here are the rigs, lures and fishing rods in the vid:

Now that we’re back in Florida we took an adventure to the Gambler Lures warehouse and broke in to steal some fishing lures and finally caught up with Val and asked him some questions about where the swimbait design came from and what got him in to fishing and Gambler Lures in the first place.

Now that we’re in Florida we’ll be shooting a bunch of vids on Lake Okeechobee, Lake Kissimee, maybe Stick Marsh and all the deep water fisheries. Winter is the best time of year to fish Florida because bass are staging up to spawn and eating a ton!!!! Not to mention winter temps in the mid 70’s. If we get a warm spell we may even be able to do some sight fishing!!!!

Is it worth it to buy the most expensive jerk bait fishing lure? The answer is yes. The Megabass Vision jerk baits are INSANE! On this clear water fishing trip to the lake I used them to target bass that were schooling on shad and suspending in ultra clear water and caught my biggest fish on the Vision 110! I throw it on a 7′ fishing rod with a moderate action made for crank bait fishing and use 12lbs flourocarbon fishing line. The lures are no doubt crazy expensive but imo totally worth it in the way they draw bites from fish that just don’t seem to be interested in any other fishing lure or jerk bait.

Funniest part of the day is I had to go on a polar swimming adventure because my bass boat drifted away from the boat ramp – water temp was a freezing winter 52!!!!! Always make sure you tie up your boat – don’t just rely on Power Poles!!!

I always thought I hated shady anglers and bass fishermen that threw shade all over the place. Come to find out in fact I’m shady and I love to throw shade when I’m using my C-Map on lakes. So I just started fishing these lakes and I’m looking for any way to be more efficient and practical with my search for fish. In this video we use a custom shading tool on my C-Map lake maps to do some depth shading in order to identify the most productive water for fishing on different kinds of lakes. this process also helps when navigating your bass boat on a new lake as well as highlighting differences in depths and changes through contrasting colors and custom palettes that work best for you. So watch this tutorial and throw some shade on shady anglers by catching more bass faster on any body of water.

We caught a MASSIVE blue crab fishing in Florida for bass and it wanted to fight. My best friend used a net to trap the crab as it swam right down the middle of a Miami canal. I have no idea why it was there or what it was doing. The Atlantic Ocean is not too far away but for a blue crab to travel that far is amazing!

This is the vlog of my peacock bass fishing trip with my best friend to Miami – the one of the only place in the whole U.S where you can catch exotic species like the Peacock Bass. We targeted fish sight fishing with small swimbaits as well as using topwater poppers which ended up being the key to getting bigger bites.
