There are so many options when fishing a Ned Rig but I never thought I would put anything but a finesse style plastic worm on it. Today the lake offered extremely windy conditions which caused what is normally clear water to become slightly dirty and stir up. We used the wind to find bass set up on a ledge facing in to current and then adapted our Ned Rig to fish finesse but also displace water with a tailed fishing lure to attract fish with all the turbulance the wind was creating. We ended up doing a mod with a Gambler Burner Worm and then a Burner Craw. The key being the kicking tails on the baits and creating more action to call the fish in versus using a more traditional stick bait or Z Man TRD.

Here are the fishing rods, fishing line, and fishing lures we used:

We all have our confidence fishing lures but there is one way to rig and fish a plastic worm that by far is my FAVORITE!!! WACKY RIGGING is to bass what candy is to humans. I don’t know why but rigging a soft plastic worm like a stick bait or finesse worm wacky style just draws fish to bite – and not just little bass but big ones as well. It’s a subtle technique where the hook is placed through the middle of the worm to create a flexing type motion when twitched with the fishing rod. It’s not just a finesse fishing technique either, I wacky rig giant worms when Neko Rigging for trophy bass in Florida as well.

We tested the VMC Tokyo Rig to see if it’s worth fishing as well as did what I think is a pretty epic DIY Mod for ultra finesse fishing. Overall I think it’s a pretty cool rig! The Tokyo Rig combines a hook and a wire leader with a swivel so that the plastic worm you add fishes above the bottom. With our DIY Mod we’ve taken the rig to a more finesse fishing level adding a small cirle hook or drop shot style hooks so we could nose hook small plastic finesse worms for fish under a lot of pressure in clear water situations. We used the lure on a school of pre spawn bass that have been hard to catch on more power fishing techniques.

Now that we’re back in Florida we took an adventure to the Gambler Lures warehouse and broke in to steal some fishing lures and finally caught up with Val and asked him some questions about where the swimbait design came from and what got him in to fishing and Gambler Lures in the first place.

Now that we’re in Florida we’ll be shooting a bunch of vids on Lake Okeechobee, Lake Kissimee, maybe Stick Marsh and all the deep water fisheries. Winter is the best time of year to fish Florida because bass are staging up to spawn and eating a ton!!!! Not to mention winter temps in the mid 70’s. If we get a warm spell we may even be able to do some sight fishing!!!!

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!!!

Always makes you wonder if you could win $300k at a giant fishing tournament like the FLW Forrest Wood Cup…we do know the wobble head fishing pattern it took to win and we’ll reveal that right here. It’s a fishing technique I have been using to fish for bass on brushpiles for years. It’s like many other winning techniques – just take something that catches fish and re-imagine how to use it in order to address another fishing need.

That’s what Clent Davis did in the Forrest Wood Cup to win over $300k on Lake Ouachita in August. It’s an epic summer fishing pattern that reveals how you never have to fish a fishing lure the way it’s supposed to be fished. Any fishing bait can be used in a million different ways. The wobble head is such a versatile fishing lure and dragging it on offshore structure is a less known method that you need to try if you’re targeting brush piles, shell bars, or fish in the deeper depths of your lake.

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!!!

Who doesn’t LIKE to fish for bass with topwater LURES? During the shad spawn there’s a few fishing lures that you need to have to catch bass. The crazy part is some of them are not even topwater baits but when you fish they focus on the surface of the water column! The shad spawn is when forage like shad spawn on grass or hard cover -just like bass in a way. It leads to a fish feeding frenzy during low light periods of the day. Thus you don’t get all day to target them and usually it’s just a small window in the morning when you get to the lake. On Lake Okeechobee the weird part is this spawn lasts all summer where as on most bodies of water it only occurs when the water is under 80 degrees.

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!
