Skin cancer sucks and it’s a huge problem for anglers summer fishing. Here are some tips to protect your skin against damaging rays. We also discovered a crazy new species for my lake. A type of catfish I have never seen before in the waters around Florida. Super rare for the clear water lake I love to fish!!! Maybe there are other new species swimming around in the lake for me to discover! I have seen some crazy fish on the sonar unit I use to see down in the depths!

We also explore a new technique I call twerking a Ned Rig you can use when fishing for bass that are suspended up in the lake depths. A full technique review and explanation and we get to hang out with Bog the pitbull – the fishing pitbull!!!

My first ever Michigan smallmouth fishing ULTRA CLEAR natural lakes on my fishing road trip to the north!!! Big thanks to YouTuber Benjamin Nowak for making this happen – it was a grind but that’s what makes fishing for bass such a passionate and emotional sport! Keys for the day were fishing hard baits rip baits however my first ever ULTRA CLEAR lake bass was caught on a Ned Rig right at the end of the day. It’s finally spring in Michigan and these fish are a pre spawn and staging to spawn mode.

Stay tuned for some advanced Lipless Crankbait tips from YouTuber Bass Quest and then day 2 of the #SeekingBronze tour which will turn out INSANE!

We were fishing for bass and then all of sudden sploosh! One GIANT freshwater snook! While out fishing for peacock bass with my best friend from Wisconsin the Rebel Pop R topwater bait strikes again during our annual fishing trip enticing a monster snook to explode on top. Using light light braided fishing line and medium action spinning tackle this fish fight was one to remember! Even though we were targeting Peacock Bass this catch made day 1 of our trip a successful one! Stay tuned for day 2 when we do something I’ve never done – use live bait in the form of shiners to sight fish bedding Peacock Bass in South Florida!

Punching, flipping, swimbaits, crankbaits, hair jigs – fishing for trophy bass mash up on Lake Okeechobee and other Central Florida big bass factories! I thought it was time to throwback to some of the greates fish catches of the year and highlight fishing for bass in a wide range of situations – from targeting shallow grass and flipping mats with heavy braided fishing line to targeting fish offshore with flourocarbon, this is a bit of the best of everything.

When fishing for bass there are those times when things go CRAZY. If you like to fish for bass the shad spawn is one of the best times to fish hands down. Largemouth bass are eating reproducing shad in droves and targeting them can mean big fish and catching a lot of fish. Here are some keys though. On Lake Okeechobee it usually only happens during low light periods – sunrise, sunset, during overcast conditions – weather and sunlight is a high key to fishing this pattern. Here I’m targeting isolated grass patches near the main lake on Lake Okeechobee with fishing lures like a swim jig, Spro Poppin Frog , and almost any kind of topwater (see the bait list below). This is one fishing tip that needs to get out there because it can lead to catching a bunch of fish adn some big bass when you’re out on the lake or wherever you fish!

There are still secrets when it comes to fishing for big bass during the hot summer months. It starts with nuanced bait and lure presentations and adjusting them for how the fish set up in cover and on structure when water temps start to push to the boiling point. In the vid I caught over 26lbs of largemouth bass in Florida using some of these less known techniques and using them in a different way than what your average fisherman would. Baits that really stood out today were big swimbaits, hair jigs, Texas-Rigged soft plastics, a Neko Rig, and a Scrounger Jerky J rig. It was an EPIC day and it all came down to analyzing where the fish were at different points in the day, how they were located on structure like shell bars, as well as how the bass transitioned to suspending over heavy cover like brushpiles and offshore fish attractors.

Weather was standard Florida summer – high humidity, temps in the 90’s, partly to mostly sunny skies, and generally very minimal wind.

The first Gambler Gear Up fishing package is out and I got my hands on one early! It includes 14 bags of Gambler fishing baits all selected by pro angler JT Kenney as well as a 5 Liter Gambler Tek Dry Bag and a Gambler Buff.

Want yours? Get it here: http://www.gambler-lures.com/product_p/gub1.htm

I go through and look at the colors and bait styles incorporated in the package. I also look at some of the fishing techniques and applications I use these types of baits for. I like JT Kenney and really agree with his fishing bait picks especially if you’re looking to simplify what kinds of plastics you have with you for fishing a range of lakes and bodies of water. These are the right colors and the right styles to do anything from fish shallow grass to targeting offshore bass.
