I really hate punching heavy cover for bass on places like Lake Okeechobee and Lake Kissimmee…Florida bass fishing is terrible…SERIOUSLY?!?!? SUBSCRIBE https://www.youtube.com/user/mikeybalzzfishing

This is one of the most intense ways to cheat bass in to biting during high pressure situations and it’s flat out the funnest fishing technique I have ever learned. When you have semi clear water and heavy vegetation or cover using a heavy tungsten weight, a fairly heavy action fishing rod, and an attitude to grind whatever lake you might be on! There’s nothing more raw that targeting these type of fish when the situation is right. Heavy cover provides bass a hangout where they can live in low light water conditions and ambush whatever they want to eat as it passes by. Vegetation like hyacinth, penny wort, and water lettuce are some of the key types of vegetation we looks for as well a underwater hydrilla or milfoil. All provide those canopy characteristics that are perfectly suited for using this fishing technique. Braided fishing line, heavy guage hooks, and a solid snell knot. The fish bite is usually a slight tap or dead weight and sometimes you might be tricked thinking you are hung up on vegetation especially during fall and winter seasons when activity levels can be lower. Isolated targets are the best for bigger fish but that can be a challenge – it can mean targeting less fish more spread out.

So you want to try this fishing technique, punching for bass, what kind of fishing rods, fishing line, and terminal tackle do you need? Here it is:

The TOXIC red tide green algae slime covering Florida waters is a hot topic so we’re going to have a fishing challenge to see if you can actually catch fish in the slimy green water. With the spillway gates open a lot of current is pushing the algae down the river towards the coast and our challenge is to take advantage of the fishing opportunity moving water provides during the summer heat. One of the biggest summer fishing tips I can give any angler is find moving water or current so that’s what we’re going to do to try to win this fishing challenge!!! The biggest question is how much does the toxic blue green algae slime make the fish tough to catch. There are a some INSANE fishing twists in this video including a massive snook, gar fish, and tilapia so make sure you watch the whole fishing challenge and what fishing lures show off when put to the angling test!!!

The FISHING challenge with the Nichols Mag Spoon was practically cheating – the fish were set up perfect for that fishing lure! I’ve figured out some cheater tips and techniques that from that challenge and going to the lake a few more times that I think are key to catching giant fish on that magnum spoon. It’s a challenge to fish that lure in one way so having a few diverse techniques and tips to help you use it more efficiently on the water as well as showing you the trick that I think made the Spoon Challenge vid such a success go a long way to catching more and bigger bass!!!

Fishing for bass I didn’t know I could have a stalker on the lake!?! Out on Lake Okeechobee punching for bass I ran into the FWC – always awesome and super helpful to us anglers! So I decided to ask the officers about the fishing stalker I have while bass fishing on my deeper water. I’m sure you guys remember the videos talking about the angler that moves brush piles and harasses other boats fishing offshore structure – dude is crazy flat out. He’ll stalk you whenever the paranoia gets to him and that’s crazy!!! It was interesting to what the officers had to say and they even cited another social media occurrence where another angler was being harassed. It was good to find out what I can do if I run into that guy on the water and we got to flip reeds with a shot at a giant bass!!!

Going full HOBO – I got the new fishing truck I wanted to find a deal on a bigger truck like a RAM 2500 and I wanted to be on the road homeless but literally feel at home sleeping in the truck. This is step 1 in the process of travel video road trip fishing! I originally wanted a Ford F-250 but price point (poverty LOL) and some other travel features drove me to the Ram 2500. It’s gonna be like living in a van – almost literally but the larger bed and some of the DIY tweaks I make along with adding a topper are going to make homeless road trip life feel pretty homey!

I didn’t cheat but this wasn’t supposed to be a bass fishing challenge with a spoon! I forgot all my soft plastic lures for offshore fishing so this turned into a hardbait challenge fishing for bass in summer! Which turned out INSANE since we landed over 30lbs of bass – MEGABAG and caught a 9lbs 9oz fish and my PB on a Nichols Ben Parker Spoon an 11lbs 6oz bass – HUGE! Summer can be a great time to fish for bass with hard baits since the lake water is super warm in Florida and fish metabolism is up. Reaction style lures tend to shine in that situation. Because these fish were suspended – up off the bottom – the spoon lure was perfect since it reaches higher in the water column and we were able to target the schooling fish – the lasagna – we were seeing on the sonar!
