Winning at fishing means catching bass with fishing line and equipment that doesn’t challenge your budget too much. When it comes to fishing line I’ve figured out a few fishing hacks to getting around throwing out that braided line or flourocarbon and recycling it to other spools. Little tricks like these make the challenge of fishing on a budget successful so we can focus on what we love to do – fish for bass!!! Hopefully these fishing tips will help you conserve and reuse some fishing line and keep you on the angler budget challenge – owning quality gear and tackle that gets the job done without spending all of the dollars!!!

Fishing for bass using the technique of punching thick grass is an epic technique. High intensity one on one fishing combat! Probably one of my favorite fishing patterns, using heavy weights, big flipping stick fishing rods, and heavy braid makes for one of the best bites on Lake Okeechobee any time of the year. Catching well over 20lbs on a day that was truelly a grind!

Weather was partly cloudy, warm with a slight easterly breeze.

an unforgettable day captured by gopro fishing the florida everglades.  with the water low fish push out into the last remaining deep water – i.e. the canals; and it can make for a big bass smash.  it’s not about catching them, it’s more about catching the biggest ones you possibly can.  best 5 went around 37lbs all caught on magnum baits – D&M Custom Baits Flippin Craw and 1/2oz Reins Tungsten.
