I’m always interested in the mental game of tournament fishing because I FAIL at it most of the time. My friend Donny Bass however is awesome at fishing and winning tournaments. So I cornered him and asked him for tips and techniques on being more successful when competing in bass fishing tournaments on places like Lake Okeechobee, Lake Toho, and other renowned Florida bodies of water!

Fishing for bass on the weekend – especially on a popular river – means you’re going to have to deal with jet skis and total douche bags on the water. Still think it’s CRAZY how this jet ski cut me off running full wake thru a back water area – NOT SAFE!!!!!! That said we caught some bass targeting a local river in a high pressure period with a bunch of leisure boaters out. Goes to show fish will bite all the time just have work for it. Revealed a few fun techniques and tips here to focus on when heading to a local river to fish for bass!

Crush some late spawning bass with this pattern fishing Lake Okeechobee or just about anywhere. We run thru a day of fishing for bass on the Big O targeting late spawning fish with a crazy jig and stick bait rig as well as a chatterbait in super shallow water. These are some fishing tips and techniques you can use fishing in spring for bass staging and spawning in and around shallow heavy cover. And we got to do a subscriber meetup with James who is fishing a high school fishing tournament on Lake Okeechobee!

It’s the final fishing tournament with the old bass boat before we move all the gear and graphs to the new Triton fishing rig! Fished a super clear lake with my good buddy Charlie who is a stick out there! Different format tournament than your standard fishing derby – got to sleep in and rig rods in the morning . Had time to shoot some video about the rigs we’re using out there too and what catches fish in super clear water situations during the transition between spawn to post spawn. But all in all it’s the final voyage with the old fishing boat. She will be missed but change is good! Can’t wait to get the new girl out there and break her in with some giant bass!

My boy and subscriber Brent catches a ridiculous PB out bass fishing with me – it’s THE ONE! This was a SUBSCRIBER trip test fishing for bass and it turned out insane! Could not of asked for perfect day, Brent scored a PB – personal best – and we caught it all on video. Aside from the huge bass we were also able to make a ton of catches on my new favorite finesse tackle – the Ned Rig. If the PB was ridiculous for it’s size, the numbers of bass we caught was equally epic. These schools of fish can be moody but when they are set up in such a concentrated pod once you figure out the right lures and presentation it’s game on for catching a ton of fish. Kind of a crazy day too as we had a front gradually passing through and it actually ended up colder at the end of the day then when we first got to the lake. The low pressure system didn’t hurt us and probably triggered a bit of a feeding frenzy for the bass as well.

Took an awesome SUBSCRIBER out fishing for bass and we crushed it. Caught my 2nd biggest PB fish EVER! The crazy part is how I caught her – I seem to have a reputation for catching giant fish on accicdent, you have to see it to believe it!

A little about the SUBSCRIBER: Brent is a family man from the west coast of Florida and Tampa Bay Lightning fan (double thumbs up there!!!!). Wanted to learn some fishing tips and techniques for searching for bass and catching them outside your traditional Florida fishing patterns…..and maybe bet a shot at a PB bass! He got super close to breaking his PB in this vid but you’ll have to tune in for part 2 to see if we shatter his PB with a giant Florida largemouth!

40lbs+ 5 fish limit of bass fishing the juice – what just happened!!? This is insane, fishing techniques aside we are on the best lake in the country right now and the best spot for huge fish I think I’ll ever find! Once again getting reaction strikes from fish using crankbaits in deeper water deflection off shell and focusing on an underwater point, these fish are moving up to spawn and they all seem to be stuck in this small area and they are the biggest fish on the lake. My goals was to target a mega giant fish but when you’re catching nothing but 8lbs+ bass in Florida how can you stop fishing for them. This is literally the best fishing I’ll ever experience in my life so I’m going to live it up as long as I possibly can. We have them dialed in and they’re eating just as long as you’re using the right fishing technique and presenting the lure correctly!
