Winning at fishing means catching bass with fishing line and equipment that doesn’t challenge your budget too much. When it comes to fishing line I’ve figured out a few fishing hacks to getting around throwing out that braided line or flourocarbon and recycling it to other spools. Little tricks like these make the challenge of fishing on a budget successful so we can focus on what we love to do – fish for bass!!! Hopefully these fishing tips will help you conserve and reuse some fishing line and keep you on the angler budget challenge – owning quality gear and tackle that gets the job done without spending all of the dollars!!!

Who doesn’t LIKE to fish for bass with topwater LURES? During the shad spawn there’s a few fishing lures that you need to have to catch bass. The crazy part is some of them are not even topwater baits but when you fish they focus on the surface of the water column! The shad spawn is when forage like shad spawn on grass or hard cover -just like bass in a way. It leads to a fish feeding frenzy during low light periods of the day. Thus you don’t get all day to target them and usually it’s just a small window in the morning when you get to the lake. On Lake Okeechobee the weird part is this spawn lasts all summer where as on most bodies of water it only occurs when the water is under 80 degrees.

If you’re crazy about fishing for bass this bait shop will make you drool. Franks Great Outdoors in Michigan makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop. Not to mention that before even walking in to the shop we met a guy that makes a crazy fishing scent and he threw Benjamin and I some swag to take smallie fishing. The road trip series continues as we get close to a shot at my PB smallmouth bass. This bait shot blew my mind though! Every aisle made me drool and want to grab all kinds of crazy fishing lures that. There is something here for every technique for bass and my mind was blown – absolutely insane selection right next to some of the best bass fishing in Michigan. Like epic bait shops? You’ll be drooling as we check out Frank’s Great Outdoors! Stay tuned for more as we get the inside VIP tour before heading out for PB smallie fishing!

I have goosebumps from a totally unscheduled fishing stop on my road trip north at Kentucky Lake. Bank fishing for bass I managed to catch my PB spotted bass fishing a drop shot rig in a small bay right next to the dam. Headed on a road trip to my brother’s wedding and some epic smallmouth bass fishing in Michigan I just randomly stopped and got a hotel for the night down the road from Kentucky Lake, grabbed a fishing liscense, and went out OG style trying to catch my first Kentucky Lake bass – I would’ve never known it would be my PB!!! This is just the beginning of a road trip series chronicling my trip to search for my PB smallmouth bass with my buddy Benjamin Nowak. So stay tuned!

Finnaly fishing for bass and popping the cherry on the new bass boat rig! Such a huge day and the fishing cooperated. This time of year fishing can be a little spotty but swing head jigs, stick baits, jigs and a little bit of neko rigging did the trick getting bites. Florida fishing is about to get super good – epic good – as these fish settle in to pre summer patterns. So stoked and thankful to have this rig and pop the cherry on one of my favorite lakes with some solid bass!

Icicles in Florida? Winter fishing is the ideal time to go fishing for bass and target huge fish with crankbaits! I always try to mix in fishing tips and techniques and this is a big one when it comes to crankbaits and fishing plugs – it’s all about wobble, vibration, body shape, and in general – water displacement. I bought a bunch of stuff at Tackle Warehouse to show off what I’m talking about. Not every big, super deep crank is the same, and it’s the subtle differences that mattter. So on the coldest day this winter we’re going to break down the best crankbait fishing secrets I have and then head out to the lake on a freezing winter day when nobody goes fishing but the crazy people (i.e. me) – and yeah we catch a #thunkdonkey!

Punching heavy cover flipping mats on Lake Kissimmee fishing for bass. This is winter fishing in Florida as bass move to stage and spawn while it’s snowing in the rest of the country. Thick grass like hydrilla, hyacinth, and pennywort attract huge bass this time of year and I love using the fishing technique of punching to target them on lakes like Kissimeee, Lake Okeechobee, and other shallow Florida natural lakes. This is part 2 of a crazy day catching a lot of fish including a near 7lbs bass even though fish seemed to be in a negative mood.

Weather was partly sunny lows in the 60’s highs in the mid 70’s. Fish are in a winter staging pattern moving up to spawn when the moon and the weather get right.
