We linked up with Halo Fishing Rods for a fishing rod challenge on Lake Guntersville. Walt is an absolute stick out on the lake so we learned about summer bass behavior as well as the technology that makes up some of the fishing rods I love. What was most interesting to me is how the Ti series fishing rods – the ones I use for fishing a Mag Ned Rig or other soft plastic worm lures – have a solid tip vs. a tubular tip, creating a soft fast taper for casting and loading up during a hookset.

Lojo Fishing called to fish with one goal – catching his first smallmouth bass. The challenge was on and it turned into quite an adventure. First all we could get to bite were small largemouth bass. Then we got stopped by the lake police and after that they started chewing our lures. Did Lojo catch his first smallmouth bass????

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 !!!

Hair jig fishing for bass is an art form. It’s a fishing technique you need to take time to learn the details of because you’re basically fishing the lure in the ether column of the water – the middle of nowhere. Hair jigs are perfect for targeting finicky schools of fish as well as suspended bass that are elevated in the lake. It mimics shad and other bait fish that are known to dart and dive in the water. 3 keys you need to pay attention to when hair jig fishing are the action of fishing rod, fishing line size, and what depth the fish are focused in . Watch the video for all the details and hopefully to became a better hair jig angler!!!!

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:

I decided to go on an adventure to punch for bass on a new lake I’ve never fished before! We went bass fishing on Garcia Lake right near the famous Stick Marsh. The focus for the day was punching heavy vegetation and matted cover to target fishing moving in to spawn. The water is very low in Florida in 2019 and I even managed to hit a small stump so be careful if you’re running around the lake fishing in Florida right now. It was a fun day and the key really was isolated vegetation, punching through, and pumping the bait until the bass committed to biting. We missed a lot of bites but fishing a new lake is always a cool experience and it leaves you wanting to come back for more!!!

There are a lot of fishing techniques you can use to catch fish behind other bass boats fishing a lake – and this one they hate me for!!!! In this video we catch some bass and get in depth into how to longline for bass using smaller crankbaits on light fishing line to trigger reaction strikes. I love this kind of fishing – but I’m sure I’ll get some hate for it being trolling. It’s a super efficient winter tactic in Florida for combatting googans and continuing to catch fish on highly pressured lakes.

I love to catch bass but am I willing to get my truck stuck in the middle of an orange grove to punch for fish???? YES!!! This is the sketchiest fishing adventure I’ve ever taken to a lake I’ve never seen but it had mats and big Florida bass in mats are irresistible! I try to shoot fun vids and when my friend said he knew about a lake that had a dirt boat ramp where you could get your truck stuck but their were mats everywhere I couldn’t turn it down. We went out and punched for spring bass and it was a grind – some of the toughest but most fun fishing I’ve done yet this year down in Florida! Of course I lost a giant and so did my friend but the best part was going on the adventure and finding a new fishing hole!!!

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.

Want to test the Tokyo Rig and the DIY MOD yourself? Here’s what I used:
