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!
Want the crankbaits in the video? Links to them at Tackle Warehouse below:
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!!!!
I just made the biggest decision of my fishing life – of my fishing career – this is big news and it’s time to share with you! I am moving to Alabama to pursue my dream of bass fishing on Lake Guntersville, Lake Pickwick, Lake Chickamauga and more! SUBSCRIBE https://www.youtube.com/user/mikeybalzzfishing
This does not me an I am leaving beautiful Lake Okeechobee forever. I will be spending time in Florida fishing for bass and shooting videos but I am taking a huge leap and headed to buy my first house in a fishing mecca of the world!
I’m afraid if this continues it could kill Lake Okeechobee – one of the best freshwater fishereis in the country. Who is doing it? The REAL STORY is not in the news but you’ll hear about the toxic algae blooms on the coast. Killing grass on the lake has increased annually since 2010 and it’s not just invasive species being targeted anymore. Lake Okeechobee water levels have marched up – a story that should have made news in 2013 but was passed over until the crisis we find ourselves in now. I don’t have the answers and you need to remember no matter what “real story” you listen too there is an agenda and bias behind it. This is how I’ve watched the killing of Lake Okeechobee unravel since 2010 when I first arrived in South Florida. There isn’t one person to blame for the destruction of the lake but Okeechobee has been victim to a wide range of interests and politics which all in in all jeopardize the future of Florida’s greatest freshwater fishery!

Crazy square bill and jig fishing on a private Florida lake in the scorching summer sun! Charlie and I whack over 20lbs of Florida strain largemouth fishing mid depths on a sunny calm day out on the lake. Charlie told me there were giants in here and he was right! We only fished for 4 hours and caught some big fish even a 5lbs bass on while the drone was flying! It’s always fun hanging out with friends and hunting for big bass and that’s what happened today. We even found a sunken canoe with treasure bass on it! It’s always an adventure going out on Florida lakes with the potential for big bags – the week before Charlie caught 2 30lbs limits in one day! That’s insane, flat out!
Conditions: partly cloudy, upper 80’s and calm

Douchebags are real and in this video I ran inot a real one. Bass fishing is made worse by these kind of people adn fishing in general. Don’t be that guy. But in this case I won and found what he didn’t want me to find and scored a massive bag of largemouth bass because of it.
Donny Bass and I finished 2nd in the Roland Marin Marine Series Tournament on Lake Okeechobee doing what we love to do – punching heavy cover for big fish! Full day video and weigh in, all the deets and all the fish using big tungsten weights to target big bass on the bass capitol of the world Lake Okeechobee.
One of the best tournaments in Florida paying over $5k for the win. We managed 2nd place thanks to some awesome punching and flipping fish staked up in the mats. Go to baits was a Gambler Crawdaddy and Why Not (links below), heavy braided line, and heavy action fishing rods.
Conditions: sunny with partial clouds, highs in the 80’s and fish staging up to spawn.
Took my best friend fishing and we caught a bunch of peacock bass and some snook with swimbaits targeting bedding areas just before the full moon. What people don’t know is peacock bass behave a lot like blue gill or bream because that’s their closest relation. We managed to fish for bass at just the right time.
Weather was hot balmy summer conditions, no wind no rain and temperatures in the 90’s. The whole key was these fish were spawning and locked on beds and we could sight fish for them which made it amazingly fun!
