I decided to go on an adventure to punch for bass on a new lake I’ve never fished before! We went bass fishing on Garcia Lake right near the famous Stick Marsh. The focus for the day was punching heavy vegetation and matted cover to target fishing moving in to spawn. The water is very low in Florida in 2019 and I even managed to hit a small stump so be careful if you’re running around the lake fishing in Florida right now. It was a fun day and the key really was isolated vegetation, punching through, and pumping the bait until the bass committed to biting. We missed a lot of bites but fishing a new lake is always a cool experience and it leaves you wanting to come back for more!!!

There are a lot of fishing techniques you can use to catch fish behind other bass boats fishing a lake – and this one they hate me for!!!! In this video we catch some bass and get in depth into how to longline for bass using smaller crankbaits on light fishing line to trigger reaction strikes. I love this kind of fishing – but I’m sure I’ll get some hate for it being trolling. It’s a super efficient winter tactic in Florida for combatting googans and continuing to catch fish on highly pressured lakes.

Why did one of the coolest pro anglers on tour – JT Kenney – quit pro fishing? JT and I hung out to shoot some video and talk about fishing and he revealed not only why he quit pro fishing but also the best secret lake for bass fishing in Florida right now!!!! Although he’s out of pro fishing from the tour level tournament standpoint he’s going to be announcing the new Major League Fishing Bass Pro Tour!! Should be hilarious and insightful at the same time – not to mention quitting fishing tournaments means he’s going shoot a bunch of tips and techniques videos on his YouTube Channel JT Kenney Fishing!!!

Catching fish punching mats in Florida is one of the most epic techniques to catch big bass during the winter and spring. Punching is probably one of my favorite ways to catch fish due to the heavy grass and intensity of the bit and the fight! This is punching heavy grass unplugged following the YouTuber vs Pro challenge with Glenn Browne and former NFL player Ellis. Just some #realfishing footage with a solid tips and techniques recap that should help you catch more fish in 2019 when you target and flip heavy grass.

The key pattern was targeting points and corners where fish were stacked up but tentative to bite until they were triggered by pumping the lure under the mat or suspending it.

This was a great highlight for the Gambler #GearUp PUNCHING ESSENTIALS box featuring Glenn’s picks of the must have punching lures when fishing heavy vegetation https://bit.ly/2se5jAt

Ever wonder if Youtubers can beat pros at fishing in a punching challenge fishing tournament? The challenge is on punching for bass on Lake Rousseau against pro angler Glenn Browne and a former NFL football player Ellis vs Mikeybalzz Fishing and Chris of 44 Tackle! Punching is an awesome winter and spring technique for catching bass on their way to spawn in Florida. Heavy cover and heavy vegetation like hydrilla, milfoil, and hyacinth retain heat and offer a great hideout for fish as they stage up. Glenn is one of the masters at punching heavy cover and he used a 1.5oz tungsten weight a heavy Lews fishing rod and a new Lews fishing reel made specifically for punching spooled up with 65lbs braided fishing line.

This was an epic matchup versus some insane anglers and we had a ton of fun. The key pattern was targeting points and corners where fish were stacked up but tentative to bite until they were triggered by pumping the lure under the mat or suspending it.

We all have rigs and fishing lures that we believe in and and always have tied up. My confidence fishing rig shows off in this video – the Mag Ned Rig and the Neko Rig are standards whenever I get on the lake. I have caught a lot of big fish as well as numbers of bass fishing these rigs and that really leads me to having the confidence that I can get a bite on them on any body of water – lake, ultra clear water, river – even outside Florida. The are both especially good fishing techniques for winter fishing down here in Florida when pre spawn bass feed to move up to spawn.

Here are the rigs, lures and fishing rods in the vid:

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 always thought I hated shady anglers and bass fishermen that threw shade all over the place. Come to find out in fact I’m shady and I love to throw shade when I’m using my C-Map on lakes. So I just started fishing these lakes and I’m looking for any way to be more efficient and practical with my search for fish. In this video we use a custom shading tool on my C-Map lake maps to do some depth shading in order to identify the most productive water for fishing on different kinds of lakes. this process also helps when navigating your bass boat on a new lake as well as highlighting differences in depths and changes through contrasting colors and custom palettes that work best for you. So watch this tutorial and throw some shade on shady anglers by catching more bass faster on any body of water.
