Frog fishing for bass is almost as fun as punching. We broke down 3 types of frog fishing anyone trying to fish catch fish must know about. We also threw in our top frog lure picks as well as what kind of fishing line and what type of fishing rod to throw them on to catch more bass wherever your lake is at! Bass Quest also let the secret out on frog lure colors and what you REALLY need to look at when picking a frog to fish with. There’s been such a hot frog bite on Lake Okeechobee lately – and in general summer is a great time to be using frogs to catch bass – I thought it was time to get in depth on this fishing technique and cast some fishing tips your way to catch more and bigger bass the next time you head to the water!

Crush some late spawning bass with this pattern fishing Lake Okeechobee or just about anywhere. We run thru a day of fishing for bass on the Big O targeting late spawning fish with a crazy jig and stick bait rig as well as a chatterbait in super shallow water. These are some fishing tips and techniques you can use fishing in spring for bass staging and spawning in and around shallow heavy cover. And we got to do a subscriber meetup with James who is fishing a high school fishing tournament on Lake Okeechobee!

Fishing for bass I was thinking about bass lures and the Ned Rig. I had fun learning how to fish a Ned Rig and wanted to stick with the same finesse principles but go mag style like usual. What I came up with is a blend of a slightly heavier Ned Rig jig head paired up with a magnum ned style worm – super fat and a little bit longer. After this vid I put the rig and fishing technique to work and unlike most of my other fishing lure experiments it worked flawlessly and we caught a couple 6+ pound fish. Once again the best approach was to basically dead stick and/or shake the bait and target small areas. In my opinion it’s a spot fishing technique not so much for broad areas but a great way to coax bigger bass when you have them pinned down.

Had my first time fishing the Ned Rig for bass – and the fish eat it! It’s a finesse fishing technique that I had heard about but never tried. Took it out to the lake fishing for fish schooling in deeper water but that were in a very negative mood due to heavy fishing pressure and one of the biggest winter cold fronts of the year in Florida. The bass loved it! My first fish was over 5lbs and I can’t tell you how many bites I got where as throwing a drop shot rig, swimbait, Neko Rig and other finesse style fishing lures would not get bit. Learning a new fishing technique is a blast but when the results are like this, it’s something to note. Stay tuned as I play with some variations on the standard Ned Rig for bass and spruce it up a little bit Florida style for huge finicky fish!

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!

This bass is insanely huge – fishing for bass with crankbaits, a great winter fishing technique, this fish runs me nearly out of fishing line but I barely land here and call my buddy to show off because she’s that BIG! As far as fishing techniques are concerned using reaction baits during cold water fishing periods is one of the only ways to get them to bite – especially huge bass like this. For some reason when water temps drop into the 60’s it’s tough to catch big fish on most soft plastics. This is a great example of adapting to the conditions and targeting less but bigger bass to come up with a trophy fish in late winter/early spring in Florida!

Winter fishing in Florida is probably the best time to fish for bass. Fish are eating for the spawn and also in a mode to feed up for the winter making fishing at it’s best. There’s a few fishing tips and techniques that seem to show off for huge fish this time of year and we highlight them in this video. From how to throw and umbrella rig and swimbaits to how to long line with crankbaits – I even lose a monstrous 9+lbs bass right at the boat!

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.
