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!

Ever wonder if Youtubers can beat pros at fishing in a punching challenge fishing tournament? The challenge is on punching for bass on Lake Rousseau against pro angler Glenn Browne and a former NFL football player Ellis vs Mikeybalzz Fishing and Chris of 44 Tackle! Punching is an awesome winter and spring technique for catching bass on their way to spawn in Florida. Heavy cover and heavy vegetation like hydrilla, milfoil, and hyacinth retain heat and offer a great hideout for fish as they stage up. Glenn is one of the masters at punching heavy cover and he used a 1.5oz tungsten weight a heavy Lews fishing rod and a new Lews fishing reel made specifically for punching spooled up with 65lbs braided fishing line.

This was an epic matchup versus some insane anglers and we had a ton of fun. The key pattern was targeting points and corners where fish were stacked up but tentative to bite until they were triggered by pumping the lure under the mat or suspending it.

This was a great highlight for the Gambler #GearUp PUNCHING ESSENTIALS box featuring Glenn’s picks of the must have punching lures when fishing heavy vegetation https://bit.ly/2se5jAt

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.

We’ve all been there strutting the angler walk of shame at the end of a hard fished tournament. It’s tough to swallow after having put in so much time and really committed to laying it all on the line – but that’s the reality of tournament fishing, especially on Lake Okeechobee. There’s no shame in losing – even badly if you’re able to reset as an angler and come back and fish again. And sometimes that’s all you can do – fish, fail, and get right back out there. The walk of shame is just a reminder of how humbling this sport can be and how mother nature is never predictable when it comes to fishing for bass.

Once again the topwater frog was a top fishing lure out here on Lake Okeechobee as well as punching with a jig and Mega Daddy combo or a 1/2oz. Hawgtech tungsten paired up with a bulk plastic bait.
