There are a few summer fishing lures that never fail to catch bass. Baits and techniques that I have a ton of confidence in to trigger fish to bite in the summer heat. Most of theses lures rely on getting bass to react to the lure such as crankbaits and swimbaits – their action never fail to catch bass this time of year that are active and pursuing forage like bluegills and shad. There’s also a couple lesser known baits such as the scrounger trailer combination that has become a staple technique for ledge fishing and structure fishing. And although I love fishing moving lures this time of year to catch bass you always need to have some finesse techniques for those fish that are failing to respond to your reaction lures. It seems fish never fail to bite a ned rig or a drop shot with a small stick style bait especially a wacky rigged drop shot!

There is 1 thing that is a huge fishing cheat you never want to forget when trying to catch summer bass – either fish them super fast and try to trigger them with crankbaits, big swimbaits, spoons, and reaction style fishing lures; or fish them super slow with soft plastic Texas Rigged Worms, Ned Rigs, drop shot rigs, Neko Rigs, and all the finesse techniques you can think off. The fish seem to either be in one mood or the other when fishing in summer and that means the techniques you use to catch bass need to mimic that mood. Warmer water temps and clearer water leads to more stable fishing so once you figure out a fishing pattern you can stick with it but when it comes to lakes with a lot of fishing pressure or boat traffic you may have to adapt your approach and cheat a little with more finesse style lures or highly reaction oriented baits.

Frog fishing is some of the most fun you can have fishing for bass. That topwater pattern is insane! Frog fishing is a technique of patience though and placing your fishing lure where the bass live. Fishing frogs for bass requires a focus on cadence and there’s really 2 things that no tells you enough before you get out to the lake – don’t set the hook until you feel the fish, and don’t think about your cast with your fishing rod. Often times anglers set the hook early and tournament anglers will tell you that’s a big oops when it come to hollow body frogs. Also skipping the frog under bushes, under docks, and even casting it around heavy cover you need to not think to much otherwise you end up overthinking your cast. Whether you’re bank fishing, pond fishing or tournament fishing get out a frog – the warmer water temperatures and vegetation growth means fish are shallow and relating to cover – a perfect time to cast a frog!

There is only one lure you need to catch bass in spring and honestly the way it triggers fish it’s like cheating!!! The Ned Rig is one of the best fishing lures for a couple reasons – it catches small fish and giant bass but also any angler can fish it from a beginner to an expert angler. It’s a finesse style technique that catches all species of bass and especially in late spring fishing a Ned Rig is just like cheating because the fish can’t resist it! I rig my ned rig jig with a small soft plastic worm stickbait that I cut down – a Gambler Ace and it’s tough to beat a color like green pumpkin. Since the water was not super clear and we were fishing for smallmouth and largemouth bass I used some chartreuse dip on the tail as well.

A Ned Rig jig and a soft plastic is a perfect technique to catch spring bass moving up to spawn. The versatility of the lure really makes it shine and it’s finesse features allow it to catch fish in nearly any conditions – clear water, deep water fishing, skipping docks…it’s one of the most adapatable spring fishing techniques that works for any angler. There’s a little trick I figured out that I don’t even think the pros are doing on Lake Guntersville where you flip a ned rig on light action fishing rod like a spinning rod to holes in the grass – you need clear water but basically you’re triggering spawning and staging bass using those sandy areas as pathways. It catches fish and any angler can do it – it’s easy!

As you know I put a Lowrance Ghost trolling motor on my bass boat a few weeks ago and one thing that frustrates me is no pro angler will be honest in reviewing positives and negatives of a product. In this video we review the Lowrance Ghost – taking a look at the spot lock feature, sonar and graph integration, some of the creature boat comforts it offers, as well as some of the quirks that stand out. Overall, I love the trolling motor but there are a few things that need a little TLC or aftermarket tweaks to take full advantage of. I’m no pro angler but I hope this honest review will help you get a better idea of what the Ghost has to offer.

It doesn’t matter where you’re fishing, googans exist everywhere. A reminder, what is a real googan – someone that doesn’t want to put the work in to find fish. So I’m out ledge fishing and I understand a lot of fishing holes are community spots but this guy pulled his boat up right next to mine and we even crossed fishing lines!!?! I don’t own the lake but I don’t think I would’ve done this to someone?

On a more fun subject we had a blast summer fishing using our electronics and noticing some bait fish to locate and dial in the bass. One thing I recommend is trying to fish during low light periods such as morning or sunset – it truly changes the way the fish behave and you will catch more fish.

Shoot Video, Fish – do what you love.

Fishing for bass is never the same even if you go to the same lake. I’ve found on this new adventure that these fish can deceive you a bit especially since I don’t have a history of patterns, techniques, and tunnel vision on what parts of the lake are best at certain times. I’m starting to figure it out though and one thing I’ve found is during the summer these bass will deceive you and mix with other fish species in large schools giving the impression that what you’re seeing on your Lowrance isn’t bass….but it actually is, just not totally bass.

Shoot Video, Fish – do what you love.

Last year around this time we went flipping and punching on Lake Rousseau with Glenn Browne to shoot an OG challenge fishing video. Of course the master of flipping beat me and Chris from 44 Tackle! So on my way back home I stopped at the bait shop and headed out to Lake Rousseau to pay homage to the master of punching who is sadly no longer with us with a good buddy and mentor of mine Sean Blucher. Sean is a big fish master himself and loves to flip and punch heavy cover as much as I do for bass! Sadly what we found is the FWC had done some environmental herbicide treatments and destroyed the bass ecosystem just as it was beginning to thrive.
