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.

Want the fishing rods and fishing lures to try long lining?

I’m always interested in the mental game of tournament fishing because I FAIL at it most of the time. My friend Donny Bass however is awesome at fishing and winning tournaments. So I cornered him and asked him for tips and techniques on being more successful when competing in bass fishing tournaments on places like Lake Okeechobee, Lake Toho, and other renowned Florida bodies of water!

This is one technique I love for tournament fishing on Lake Okeechobee. We just fished bass fishing tournament and we had a one in a million clutch finish! By the end of the day we won a 2nd place finish against some of the best anglers on the lake. The Roland Martin Marine Series is the biggest fishing tournament on the lake and a first place finish in that derby is huge. The last few events we’ve struggled and our tournament finishes have not been what we were hoping for – but that’s why I love this lake. It’s so dynamic the bass fishing can absolutely go off in a matter of minutes!

Tournament fishing is always a challenge but when it comes together it’s insane. This video runs through a recap and reliving of the punching and tournament strategies we used during the derby. Fishing lures, Texas Rig setup and knot, and lake pattern factors.

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!

We fished a HUGE Lake Okeechobee bass fishing tournament and we had a one in a million clutch finish! The waves were rolling the water was crazy and at the end of the day we won a 2nd place finish against some of the best anglers on the lake. The Roland Martin Marine Series is the biggest fishing tournament on the lake and a first place finish in that derby is huge. The last few events we’ve struggled and our tournament finishes have not been what we were hoping for – but that’s why I love this lake. It’s so dynamic the bass fishing can absolutely go off in a matter of minutes!

We had one of the craziest and luckiest final hours of tournament fishing I think I’ll ever experience – it just went off! We ended up weighing over 26lbs of bass and winning big fish with an 8+lbs monster bass! Tournament fishing is always a challenge but when it comes together it’s insane – not to mention it came together doing something we love, punching for bass in heavy cover!

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:

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!!!
