I am fishing a major tournament lake for the next 3 days and it’s going to be all about making clutch calls to figure out what lures and what fishing patterns are happening on Lake Toho and Kissimmee.

Want the fishing lures that caught bass or a MonsterBass hoodie sunshirt?

Fishing a tournament – mental game, pull out an epic trophy bass late in the day weighing over 8lbs; who doesn’t love fishing a bass tournament! No doubt it turned out pretty clutch. We caught a ton of fish using a wide range of techniques – drop shotting, longlining, Texas Rigged worm, spinnerbait,. Alabama Rig and a Neko Rig. Overall the bass were schooled up and fishing for them required using your graph to identify how the groups had shifted throughout the day. My worry was guys fishing spawning and pre-spawn fish in the grass – there had seemed to be a lot of big fish caught earlier in the week focusing on more traditional bass fishing techniques – topwater, flipping, sight fishing. However we focused on fishing for bass that were offshore staging to come in to spawn and it paid off with this crazy win!

Weather: morning lows in the lower 60’s, highs reaching the mid to upper 70’s; slight breeze in the P.M. and pretty much clear blue skies all day long.

Fished a local Florida fishing tournament and pulled off the win with my buddy weighing in almost 23lbs of bass. We fished a variety of baits – soft plastic worms Texas Rigged, Neko Rigs, crankbaits, and a JTK Hair Jig. Big Bass and Trophy Catch came on a Gambler JTK Hair Jig 5/8oz with 12lbs Sunline Flourocarbon fishing a ledge with shell dropping into deeper water. Conditions were post cold front with bluebird skies and winds becoming very strong by the end of the day (15-20mph out of the north). The bite was good overall regardless of the weather and it was another great local tournament hanging out with friends and fishing one of my favorite lakes in Florida for trophy bass. Ran the GoPro all day and captured pretty much everything. Raw, straight up , tournament fishing at it’s best!
