In this video I have an insane day of fishing for bass and there was really one reason. I teach you about a few fishing tips and techniques I use to fish for bass in the wind as well as lures selection. We also go fishing and have an insane day catching a couple huge bass on a a Ned Rig and a crankbait.

I got the most insane sight fishing bite fishing for bass in a tiny clear creek on Lake Lanier. It was unbelievable!!! Reeling in a Nichols Ned Rig Jig with a Gambler Ace I had two bass follow the bait all the way to the boat. I flipped the bait back out while looking at the fish and it bit!!! Absolutely insane!!! Probably the best sight fishing bites I have ever had. We caught some other spotted bass on a range of techniques from throwing Sebile swimbaits to casting micro swimbaits on ball jig heads. Lake Lanier is super clear and the creeks were no exceptions so using light line and more finesse fishing techniques was key.

At this rate I’ll never be a pro LOL!!!! We hit a new lake for a 1v1 head to head fishing challenge with my friend Charlie to see who could catch the biggest bass on a clear water lake we have NEVER been to! We used our Lowrance sonar and C Map to find structure and locate fish and then experimented with a variety of fishing lures. There is no doubt the highlight was a swimbait. Both Charlie and I ended up turning to a hollow body swimbait – styles and sizes below – rigged up with 3/4oz swimbait jig head with stout hook. The 1v1 competition added some fun and some hilarious smack talk to the whole fishing trip. Watch the whole vid to see who wins this challenge and what lures worked on this ultra clear lake!

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
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!!!

Fishing for bass with huge swimbaits is crazy fun in any day but when you catch a GIANT 10lbs 12oz fish it’s an epic day. There are some fishing tips and techniques you need to know when targeting trophy bass if you want to catch your PB and we break them down in this bass fishing video. The action of the the Bull Shad swimbait is insane and I’m not going to lie I was intimidated throwing such a big fishing lure but the results speak for the themselves.
This is the best time of year to be fishing for bass in Florida! Another insane day on the lake using crankbaits to draw reaction strikes from fish including a massive 9lbs trophy catch and another over 7lbs. Absolutely epic bites either fishing lures super slow or turning to high speed power fishing techniques like a 10XD grinding on the bottom.
Weather was key as yet again cloudy conditions and a front made fish more active with wind creating current throughout the lake.

Winter fishing for bass in the most epic cold front of the year means insane fish activity and even catching a personal best bass over 10lbs on a crank bait. I’m not saying it’s fun fishing on days like this but pre-frontal conditions, strong winds, usually rain, and overcast skies have been the ideal times to target trophy fish this year. The west wind, a normal signal of a front passing through in Florida, sets up perfect on some offshore structure I’ve found and that current supplied by the strong winds lines the fish bass up in an eating mood! For the most part the most successful fishing techniques all related to power fishing – and mainly grinding a crankbait on the bottom in 15-24ft of water. We did catch a few fish dragging a Wrecking Ball and Carolina Rig but fish seemed to want the bait moving fast and digging into the bottom.
Weather: winds WSW 15-25mph (we took water over the bow of the boat many times), overcast with occasional heavy rains – note temps were in the low 60’s-70’s, the next day saw lows in the upper 30’s – i.e. it was a massive cold front!
