We tested the VMC Tokyo Rig to see if it’s worth fishing as well as did what I think is a pretty epic DIY Mod for ultra finesse fishing. Overall I think it’s a pretty cool rig! The Tokyo Rig combines a hook and a wire leader with a swivel so that the plastic worm you add fishes above the bottom. With our DIY Mod we’ve taken the rig to a more finesse fishing level adding a small cirle hook or drop shot style hooks so we could nose hook small plastic finesse worms for fish under a lot of pressure in clear water situations. We used the lure on a school of pre spawn bass that have been hard to catch on more power fishing techniques.

Want to test the Tokyo Rig and the DIY MOD yourself? Here’s what I used:

I love to fish for bass on any lake with a gigantic crankbait. There’s a variety of fishing lures out there that dive deep and draw an epic reaction from fish when it goes by – and these things are pretty large, many weigh over 1 ounce. The trick is however you never know how a fishing lure will work until you actually get it out on the lake to fish for bass. What we’re going to try to do here is go through a review and break down of the #realfishing features of each one of these gigantic crankbaits – how they really fish wne you get them underwater and which ones I absolutely LOVE!

Now that we’re back in Florida we took an adventure to the Gambler Lures warehouse and broke in to steal some fishing lures and finally caught up with Val and asked him some questions about where the swimbait design came from and what got him in to fishing and Gambler Lures in the first place.

Now that we’re in Florida we’ll be shooting a bunch of vids on Lake Okeechobee, Lake Kissimee, maybe Stick Marsh and all the deep water fisheries. Winter is the best time of year to fish Florida because bass are staging up to spawn and eating a ton!!!! Not to mention winter temps in the mid 70’s. If we get a warm spell we may even be able to do some sight fishing!!!!

Interested in the baits we showed off when we broke in to the warehouse? Find them at Tackle Warehouse!!!!

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.

Skin cancer sucks and it’s a huge problem for anglers summer fishing. Here are some tips to protect your skin against damaging rays. We also discovered a crazy new species for my lake. A type of catfish I have never seen before in the waters around Florida. Super rare for the clear water lake I love to fish!!! Maybe there are other new species swimming around in the lake for me to discover! I have seen some crazy fish on the sonar unit I use to see down in the depths!

We also explore a new technique I call twerking a Ned Rig you can use when fishing for bass that are suspended up in the lake depths. A full technique review and explanation and we get to hang out with Bog the pitbull – the fishing pitbull!!!

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:

10 crazy awesome facts about bass fishing on Lake Okeechobee that fans always ask me. I collaborated with my friend Captain Joey Berg to go thru fishing tips, seasonal lake patterns, your YouTube questions, and break down Lake Okeechobee myths and facts so if you are fishing for bass you know where and how to start. We talk about what type and what size fishing line, what are the best color soft plastic worm colors to use on the Lake, what are the facts about summer fishing versus bass fishing in winter, as well as the craziest times to catch GIANT bass during the year. These are all facts and tips I wish I would have known when I arrived in Florida LOL! So I hope they can help to lead you to more fun on the water and a better more diverse fishing experience!!!

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!!!
