In this video I catch a GIANT bass using a finesse fishing technique on a spinning rod – one crazy fight and teetered on the edge of scary! I was using a drop shot rig on a spinning or spin cast rod and reel with a small soft plastic worm (finesse).
We all have rigs and fishing lures that we believe in and and always have tied up. My confidence fishing rig shows off in this video – the Mag Ned Rig and the Neko Rig are standards whenever I get on the lake. I have caught a lot of big fish as well as numbers of bass fishing these rigs and that really leads me to having the confidence that I can get a bite on them on any body of water – lake, ultra clear water, river – even outside Florida. The are both especially good fishing techniques for winter fishing down here in Florida when pre spawn bass feed to move up to spawn.
Here are the rigs, lures and fishing rods in the vid:
If I had to pick one I would say the most hated rig in the bass fishing community overall is the Carolina Rig. I’ve run into more guys who recognize it’s value, the Carolina Rig’s ability to catch fish in a wide range of situations, but still flat out hate the setup with a vengeance. I too am one of those who is not a fan of the rig but knows it’s something you need to know how to use and throw if you want to be decent at bass fishing.
Threw some summer fishing tips down for you right here along with some horrible singing! LOL! it’s not always about huge bass, sometimes it’s about getting out and getting bit and especially during summer that hated rig can play in to your hand if you can find some mixing water or current to locate fish on structure, which is exactly what we did here.
