It’s winter, the water is cold, but the lake is fishing INSANE!!! We caught 2 massive bass using 2 lures I love to fish when it comes to winter and they provide a perfect cold weather pattern to cover fish that get tight to cover as well as those that suspend. Both baits trigger fish into biting which is key when the water gets extremely clear and cold. Crankbaits and swimbaits along with a jerkbait are my go to’s when water temps drop into the 50’s. The spinnerbait comes in handy too as a more compact rig that I can throw around cover. We targeted creeks and pockets with hard bottom such as rocks as well as pockets with downed trees on the bank that stuck out into the water and provided a place for fish to suspend near as well as holding shad and other baitfish.

Fishing for bass with spoons is awesome this time of year especially as we go in to winter fishing and the cold water periods. it seems hard baits like spoons that mimic forage such as shad can be key to triggering bass to bite. One of the most important tricks to fishing magnum spoons I have found is not allowing the fish to jump once they’re hooked. You basically reel down and drag the fish in and boat flip them no matter how giant they are. We go through some spoon fishing tips and how to find the right spoon bass on your graph.

It was an epic day on the lake! I caught my Lake Guntersville PB fish using a fishing lure I made for Gambler Lures for swimbait fishing. Alabama rigs are great lures this time of year for cold water and I stumbled on a pattern for fishing grass on shallow submerged points with small swimbaits. The bass were were keyed on shad and I would use the swimbaits to mimic bait balls in creeks and at the mouths of creeks. The way I fish an umbrella rig is really more like a spinnerbait. I use a shorter fishing rod and a smaller rig so that I can cast it more accurately and fish it all day with less fatigue and more efficiency. I’m so stoked I finally caught a GIANT bass out on Lake Guntersville – definitely my PB and it made it especially cool to do it with a homemade jig.

It’s swimbait time – big winter and spring bass are chewing and giant artificial lures like glide baits and jointed swimbaits are awesome tools for catching giant bass. I have been collecting some fishing lures – some of them rare and some of them available at tackle shops but I want to be ready to learn how to fish more glide baits and large swimbaits for bass this winter. I even got a crazy ultra realistic line thru glide bait that was literally designed from a real shad!!! I love catching big fish and there is no doubt swimbait fishing is a great technique for targeting trophy bass and it’s also an insanely cool way to fish for bass! Thanks to Kevin the Baitman Baxter – throw him a sub https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCup6q6q-j1i4OGjhsjrbLPA The Shizzard should be available soon more info @doubledigitbass on Instagram Huge thanks to Rod and make sure to give him a follow @rwhallman His artistry on the real shad line thru glide bait was amazing!!!

Our fishing road trip to Wisconsin has begun and it’s time to reveal one of the soft plastic worm rigs that no one talks about but used to catch me a ton of big bass. It’s a super simple diy rig or you can buy one pre rigged but in essence it’s a pre rigged straight tail plastic worm on a straight shank hook with a swivel. It’s best to use a 12-14lbs flourocarbon leader depending on how clear the water is as well as use braided fishing line behind it. When it comes to fishing rods throwing a medium action spinning rod about 7 foot seems to work best and really there’s no wrong way to work the fishing lure! Literally anyone can catch fish on this worm rig. One of the benefits as well is that it’s very easy to skip under docks or around cover and if you’re fishing really heavy vegetation you can always use a hook with a wire weed guard. A challenging but epic first day to the trip back to the old stomping grounds and the lakes and fisheries I grew up casting on. We’ll see if I learned anything while I was gone!!!

When you take big risks you get big rewards!! This is the most dangerous bass fishing on the planet, putting a big tungsten weight with a heavy action fishing rod under a mat can be totally + WORTH IT!!! Jacob Wall (FLW PRO) and I go to Lake Guntersville and flip mats and cast chattterbaits for big bass. Fishing heavy cover is worth it when it produces big fish and it did today we walk thru tip and techniques for targeting bass in late summer and fall – where, why, and how to find insane fishing in heavy vegetation and cover.

If there is one fishing technique I love it’s flipping and punching heavy cover for bass. And right now on Lake Guntersville the mats are stacked with bass to target with heavy Hawg Tech tungsten weights, a heavy action fishing rod, and big braid. You can do it too by targeting matted vegetation on your home lake or body of water, all you need to do is find vegetation that makes a canopy for bass to live under. We go through how to catch fish in heavy cover late summer though fall and you’re going to love they way they bite !!!

I love exploring tackle shops in the U.S. so we stopped at Hammond’s Fishing Center on Lake Lanier and did a walk thru. This tackle shop is crazy – it looks like a log cabin and is piled high with fishing lures, fishing rods, and even crazy epic live bait tanks with Herring, Minnows and more!!!! Tim owns Hammonds and he’s a good friend so he tooks some time to walk us through the shop and tell us a bit about fishing Lake Lanier, spotted bass, largemouth bass, and local custom swimbaits that I thought were crazy cool!

You can find out more about this crazy tackle shop Hammond’s Fishing Center right here http://hammondsfishing.net/

Stay tuned for our next episode when we get out on the water with Tim for some bass fishing and fishing tips for Lake Lanier and catching magnum spotted bass!!!

I got the most insane sight fishing bite fishing for bass in a tiny clear creek on Lake Lanier. It was unbelievable!!! Reeling in a Nichols Ned Rig Jig with a Gambler Ace I had two bass follow the bait all the way to the boat. I flipped the bait back out while looking at the fish and it bit!!! Absolutely insane!!! Probably the best sight fishing bites I have ever had. We caught some other spotted bass on a range of techniques from throwing Sebile swimbaits to casting micro swimbaits on ball jig heads. Lake Lanier is super clear and the creeks were no exceptions so using light line and more finesse fishing techniques was key.
