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).
In this fishing video we discuss the things no one tells you about fall fishing and what I consider my cheating rig – a micro swimbait + jig rig. Fall fishing patterns and techniques all revolve around bait – whether it’s shad or herring and finding that bait on the lake you’re fishing and having a range of fishing lures that mimic the forage are key to catching fish. I teach you about the finesse swimbait rig I love for fall – blade baits, jigs, topwater lures, ned rigs, spinerbaits, chatterbaits, and even a worm rig that works on any spotted bass like lake like Lanier.
In this fishing video we learn about the new Headwaters Lake and @JT Kenney Fishing shows us what happened to his hand after topwater fishing in an epic pond on the lake. Fishing so good it hurts!!! We learn how to fish a Whopper Plopper and a magnum spook and other fishing lures in and over the grass for giant bass. Top fishing lures: Whopper Plopper, chatterbait, and a Strike King magnum spook style bait.

Swimsuit girl, she hates fishing. She comes fishing on the boat with me but never actually casts a fishing rod or catches fish so we are going to change that. I took swimsuit girl fishing to catch a variety of species of fish that all live in the river. I teach her some beginner fishing tips on setting the hook, landing fish, as well as how to fish a small swimbait lure for bass, catfish, walleye, and other fish.
In this fishing tips and techniques video I go though what the pros don’t tell you about flipping and punching for heavy cover bass in summer and fall. One of my favorite techniques to catch bass, I teach you what soft plastic lures to use, how to rig them for flipping, and what to look for when pond fishing or lake fishing to go punching for bass. It is one of my favorite fishing techniques and works great anywhere you have super heavy cover that mats up. It is also an epic way to catch bass – heavy fishing rods, heavy braided fishing line, and a heavy tungsten weight.

In this video I show you my favorite place to fish for and catch PB bass – you really don’t need to fish anywhere else in Florida if you are trying to catch a trophy bass, it’s cheating!!! The Sebring and Highlands County lakes offer any angler the chance to use a ton of fishing techniques – from frog fishing, flipping and punching, to fishing ledges and offshore structure with crankbaits, spoons and jigs! In this video I teach you one of my favorite ways to catch bass in late summer and fall by using my HDS LIVE sonar to locate brushpiles and fish them with jigs, spoons, and hair jigs!
No one has this fishing lure as of yet. I finally prototyped and designed a ned rig jig that has everything to fish big bass and heavy cover and will end bait slippage when fishing docks or just power fishing a Ned Rig. We head out to Lake Guntersville to test out my homemade jig and see how it performs around grass, fishing rock and other types of structure and cover for bass. My goal was to take the things that I don’t like about a Ned Rig – the finesse hook, the lack of a good keeper, the inability to throw it on a bait casting fishing rod – and turn those things around to make a more heavy cover, more functional, fish anywhere type ned rig jig. I also wanted it to be better suited for mag ned fishing and fishing soft plastic worms like like senkos or my Gambler Ace stick baits. We test the prototype on one of the best bass fishing lakes to see if my homemade lure catches bass and will make the cut!
There are a few summer fishing lures that never fail to catch bass. Baits and techniques that I have a ton of confidence in to trigger fish to bite in the summer heat. Most of theses lures rely on getting bass to react to the lure such as crankbaits and swimbaits – their action never fail to catch bass this time of year that are active and pursuing forage like bluegills and shad. There’s also a couple lesser known baits such as the scrounger trailer combination that has become a staple technique for ledge fishing and structure fishing. And although I love fishing moving lures this time of year to catch bass you always need to have some finesse techniques for those fish that are failing to respond to your reaction lures. It seems fish never fail to bite a ned rig or a drop shot with a small stick style bait especially a wacky rigged drop shot!
There is 1 thing that is a huge fishing cheat you never want to forget when trying to catch summer bass – either fish them super fast and try to trigger them with crankbaits, big swimbaits, spoons, and reaction style fishing lures; or fish them super slow with soft plastic Texas Rigged Worms, Ned Rigs, drop shot rigs, Neko Rigs, and all the finesse techniques you can think off. The fish seem to either be in one mood or the other when fishing in summer and that means the techniques you use to catch bass need to mimic that mood. Warmer water temps and clearer water leads to more stable fishing so once you figure out a fishing pattern you can stick with it but when it comes to lakes with a lot of fishing pressure or boat traffic you may have to adapt your approach and cheat a little with more finesse style lures or highly reaction oriented baits.
