There are a few fishing lures that I have supreme confidence in when fishing for 10 pound plus bass on some of the trophy fishing lakes in Florida. They are big reaction style baits – a magnum crankbait, a magnum spoon, and a custom swimbait. I’ve had more success catching monster bass on these baits than almost any other reaction style fishing lures. We got though some tips to fishing them, why these lures catch big bass, and some of my favorite fishing video clips using these lures out on the lake. What’s your go to lure for catching monster bass?
Fishing for bass with spoons is awesome this time of year especially as we go in to winter fishing and the cold water periods. it seems hard baits like spoons that mimic forage such as shad can be key to triggering bass to bite. One of the most important tricks to fishing magnum spoons I have found is not allowing the fish to jump once they’re hooked. You basically reel down and drag the fish in and boat flip them no matter how giant they are. We go through some spoon fishing tips and how to find the right spoon bass on your graph.
The FISHING challenge with the Nichols Mag Spoon was practically cheating – the fish were set up perfect for that fishing lure! I’ve figured out some cheater tips and techniques that from that challenge and going to the lake a few more times that I think are key to catching giant fish on that magnum spoon. It’s a challenge to fish that lure in one way so having a few diverse techniques and tips to help you use it more efficiently on the water as well as showing you the trick that I think made the Spoon Challenge vid such a success go a long way to catching more and bigger bass!!!

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!
