The soft plastic jerk bait looks just like a bait fish and you can fish it deep, shallow, around grass – basically anywhere. I go over how to rig up a soft plastic jerk bait, how to fish it, what rod and reel to use as well as a lure mode for jerkbait fishing.

In this fishing video we discuss the things no one tells you about fall fishing and what I consider my cheating rig – a micro swimbait + jig rig. Fall fishing patterns and techniques all revolve around bait – whether it’s shad or herring and finding that bait on the lake you’re fishing and having a range of fishing lures that mimic the forage are key to catching fish. I teach you about the finesse swimbait rig I love for fall – blade baits, jigs, topwater lures, ned rigs, spinerbaits, chatterbaits, and even a worm rig that works on any spotted bass like lake like Lanier.
In this fishing tips and techniques video I go though what the pros don’t tell you about flipping and punching for heavy cover bass in summer and fall. One of my favorite techniques to catch bass, I teach you what soft plastic lures to use, how to rig them for flipping, and what to look for when pond fishing or lake fishing to go punching for bass. It is one of my favorite fishing techniques and works great anywhere you have super heavy cover that mats up. It is also an epic way to catch bass – heavy fishing rods, heavy braided fishing line, and a heavy tungsten weight.

In this video I show you my favorite place to fish for and catch PB bass – you really don’t need to fish anywhere else in Florida if you are trying to catch a trophy bass, it’s cheating!!!

Some of the best fishing lures for catching bass are right in front of our faces but nobody seems to recognize them. This happens a lot when anglers don’t think to look at artificial lures designed for other species of fish like crappies and bluegill and even walleye. One of the best lures for fishing ultra clear lakes that have grass and rock is a fishing technique I learned from fellow YouTuber Benjamin Nowak -it’s basically throwing a marabou style hair jig and swimming it just like you fish a swimjig but more along the line of slow rolling it.
Whether you call them crawfish or crayfish bass love to to eat. Some of the best baits and fishing lures mimic these creatures and their darting action across rocks and sandy bottoms. On our road trip we fished Green Lake which is a renowned smallmouth fishery that also has some great laregmouth bass as well. One of the central baits that fish eat in this ultra clear lake is crawfish so along with trying to figure out a fishing pattern that works we play around with various fishing lures that imitate crawfish, what fishing rods, line etc to fish them on as well.
The late summer and fall flipping punching bite is here and I need a new punching rod for fishing heavy cover for bass. So I asked my buddy Walt who is an expert fishing rod builder at Halo what he would recommend and what my bud JT Kenney uses for catching big fish in heavy cover. We are also doing a road trip to Wisconsin to fish for smallmouth and largemouth bass so I needed some other technique specific fishing rods to throw tubes and finesse fishing lures for finicky ultra clear water bass up north.
If there is one fishing technique I love it’s flipping and punching heavy cover for bass. And right now on Lake Guntersville the mats are stacked with bass to target with heavy Hawg Tech tungsten weights, a heavy action fishing rod, and big braid. You can do it too by targeting matted vegetation on your home lake or body of water, all you need to do is find vegetation that makes a canopy for bass to live under. We go through how to catch fish in heavy cover late summer though fall and you’re going to love they way they bite !!!
