Is it worth it to buy the most expensive jerk bait fishing lure? The answer is yes. The Megabass Vision jerk baits are INSANE! On this clear water fishing trip to the lake I used them to target bass that were schooling on shad and suspending in ultra clear water and caught my biggest fish on the Vision 110! I throw it on a 7′ fishing rod with a moderate action made for crank bait fishing and use 12lbs flourocarbon fishing line. The lures are no doubt crazy expensive but imo totally worth it in the way they draw bites from fish that just don’t seem to be interested in any other fishing lure or jerk bait.

Funniest part of the day is I had to go on a polar swimming adventure because my bass boat drifted away from the boat ramp – water temp was a freezing winter 52!!!!! Always make sure you tie up your boat – don’t just rely on Power Poles!!!

We caught a MASSIVE blue crab fishing in Florida for bass and it wanted to fight. My best friend used a net to trap the crab as it swam right down the middle of a Miami canal. I have no idea why it was there or what it was doing. The Atlantic Ocean is not too far away but for a blue crab to travel that far is amazing!

This is the vlog of my peacock bass fishing trip with my best friend to Miami – the one of the only place in the whole U.S where you can catch exotic species like the Peacock Bass. We targeted fish sight fishing with small swimbaits as well as using topwater poppers which ended up being the key to getting bigger bites.

This is the best time of year to be fishing for bass in Florida! Another insane day on the lake using crankbaits to draw reaction strikes from fish including a massive 9lbs trophy catch and another over 7lbs. Absolutely epic bites either fishing lures super slow or turning to high speed power fishing techniques like a 10XD grinding on the bottom.

Weather was key as yet again cloudy conditions and a front made fish more active with wind creating current throughout the lake.

Punching Lake Okeechobee for bass is always epic and one of the most techniques when fishing for trophy largemouth bass. With Florida spring coming it’s time to brush up on our punching skills and lay out some of the inside details from fishing rods and reels, baits, terminal tackle, and fishing tips for where – when – and how to target bass in heavy vegetation.

On Lake Okeechobee the best time of year to use this fishing technique is from October to April – basically what most people call winter is an elongated spring pre-spawn period for fish. This means waves of bass staging and spawning throughout these months and punching is a great way to target them. in the vid we highlight how to fish for bass in emergent vegetation like cattails, bully whips, and lily pads, as well as mats like hydrilla, penny wort, and hyacinth. If you want to learn how to punch for bass it’s all right here.

Punching for Florida strain bass out on Lake Kissimee. One of my favorite ways to fish for bass and it’s becoming the time of year where that seasonal pattern can be key to finding staging and pre spawn fish moving in. I spent the day out on the Kissimee Chain and focused on Lake Kissimee targeting hydrill and chop grass mats in lily pads with a 1.5 oz Reins Tungsten weight and baits like a Gambler Why Not and Crawdaddy. The water is high and it’s the early part of the season, thus the reason fish are spread out and and we’re seeing so many male bass in the mats. It’s probably one of the most fun ways to fish down here in Florida and the bite should only get better as the temperature cool and fish move in to spawn.

Weather: just a few clouds, highs in the mid 80’s, no wind until the end of the day when a storm rolled up. Water temps still in the low 80’s with high water levels due to heavy rain.

Fished a local Florida fishing tournament and pulled off the win with my buddy weighing in almost 23lbs of bass. We fished a variety of baits – soft plastic worms Texas Rigged, Neko Rigs, crankbaits, and a JTK Hair Jig. Big Bass and Trophy Catch came on a Gambler JTK Hair Jig 5/8oz with 12lbs Sunline Flourocarbon fishing a ledge with shell dropping into deeper water. Conditions were post cold front with bluebird skies and winds becoming very strong by the end of the day (15-20mph out of the north). The bite was good overall regardless of the weather and it was another great local tournament hanging out with friends and fishing one of my favorite lakes in Florida for trophy bass. Ran the GoPro all day and captured pretty much everything. Raw, straight up , tournament fishing at it’s best!

Fishing for bass is a challenge, even aggressive peacock bass. We decided to bust out a traditional fishing technique I haven’t used in ages, using live bait. In this case we grabbed some shiners from a local tackle store and went out to sight fish for spawning bass on South Florida canal system that holds a range of species from snook and tarpon all the way to peacock and largemouth bass. It was sort of an adventure since neither me nor my best friend has ever tried live bait rigs for this kind of bass fishing – we were total novices but made it work to hook up with some nice fish and some ball busting in between.

Weather: partly to mostly cloudy, highs in the low 90’s becoming sunny and breezy later in the day (that’s when the bite seemed to improve too)

The rawest fishing I’ve had in a long time – smashing over 31lbs of Florida bass on 2 spots in one day. Totally challenging day with not a ton of bites but when i found them they were huge fish and totally aggressive once I figured out the little nuance. That nuance was ripping the bait of fishing lure off the top of underwater structures and drawing reaction bites from suspended fish that no one else was targeting.

Weather was partly to mostly cloudy, even turning into some rain at the end of the day when I caught that final 7+lbs fish.

Magical day of fishing, the kind you dream of and it has everything to do with putting time in on the water and paying attention to details of your bites and retrieves.

The first Gambler Gear Up fishing package is out and I got my hands on one early! It includes 14 bags of Gambler fishing baits all selected by pro angler JT Kenney as well as a 5 Liter Gambler Tek Dry Bag and a Gambler Buff.

Want yours? Get it here: http://www.gambler-lures.com/product_p/gub1.htm

I go through and look at the colors and bait styles incorporated in the package. I also look at some of the fishing techniques and applications I use these types of baits for. I like JT Kenney and really agree with his fishing bait picks especially if you’re looking to simplify what kinds of plastics you have with you for fishing a range of lakes and bodies of water. These are the right colors and the right styles to do anything from fish shallow grass to targeting offshore bass.
