JT Kenney spent some time with me on Lake Guntersville and broke down why his Nichols Mag Ned Rig works. As you know love throwing a Ned Rig finesse fishing for bass – largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass. It’s a technique that works fishing anywhere in the country. I caught my biggest bag of bass to date using the Nichols Mag Ned and I wanted to know what are teh key features of the fishing lure that set it apart from other jigs and allow it to come through cover more efficiently than other Ned Rigs.
Why did one of the coolest pro anglers on tour – JT Kenney – quit pro fishing? JT and I hung out to shoot some video and talk about fishing and he revealed not only why he quit pro fishing but also the best secret lake for bass fishing in Florida right now!!!! Although he’s out of pro fishing from the tour level tournament standpoint he’s going to be announcing the new Major League Fishing Bass Pro Tour!! Should be hilarious and insightful at the same time – not to mention quitting fishing tournaments means he’s going shoot a bunch of tips and techniques videos on his YouTube Channel JT Kenney Fishing!!!

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!!!!!!

Revealed a few fun techniques and tips here to focus on when heading to a local river to fish for 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.

The bass that didn’t make the cut – the B Team from the single best day of fishing ever 49lbs 3oz. According to Phytobedo with all the fish caught we were looking at a near 100lbs day!!! Absolutely crazy!! If you haven’t watched the biggest bag cast to catch on YouTube check it out right here https://youtu.be/K3rVg2BsBOE No doubt this is the best day of fishing I’ll ever have and got to share it with fellow YouTuber Phytobedo. Bait of the day was no doubt a mondo deep diving crankbait however also got to catch a 6 pounder throwing a huge Bull Shad Swimbait as well. The didn’t want soft plastics, theses big Florida largemouths were all about hard fishing lures, fished fast.
This bass is insanely huge – fishing for bass with crankbaits, a great winter fishing technique, this fish runs me nearly out of fishing line but I barely land here and call my buddy to show off because she’s that BIG! As far as fishing techniques are concerned using reaction baits during cold water fishing periods is one of the only ways to get them to bite – especially huge bass like this. For some reason when water temps drop into the 60’s it’s tough to catch big fish on most soft plastics. This is a great example of adapting to the conditions and targeting less but bigger bass to come up with a trophy fish in late winter/early spring in Florida!
I finally picked up my new bass boat and I can’t wait to get it fishing! We had the maiden voyage and got to see underwater bass on our trip to pick up the boat in North Central Florida. It’s all getting real! We passed through Silver Springs to pick it up and got some see some epic fish underwater on glass bottomed boats! So the new boat is home and the next step is to get her rigged out to be a fishing machine! Stay tuned! You won’t see her in the vids right away but I’ll keep you updated as the process unfolds and no doubt we’ll be shooting a boat walk thru vid once she’s all ready for the water! Gotta send a big thanks out to you guys for making this happen and a shout out to Shaye Baker and Uploaded Fishing for putting on such a huge contest for us average YouTube anglers who are trying to share our passion and #RealFishing on the web!!
Fishing for bass targeting a PB in the Florida winter cold can be insanely epic when you have the fish honed in to a pattern! Took fellow YouTuber Benjamin Nowak to the lake for a few days while he was down from Michigan to target huge pre spawn largemouth bass. We had some trials and we had some travails and hands down this was our craziest day captured all on video! We lay out a few fishing tips and techniques for what to do when faced with a grind day of fishing and it all pays off in the end with Benjamin catching his personal best bass on a crankbait right after locating a school of giant fish on the sonar!
