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!!!
Want to grab the spinnerbaits, punching gear, and topwater JT mentioned – grab them here:
Donny Bass and I finished 2nd in the Roland Marin Marine Series Tournament on Lake Okeechobee doing what we love to do – punching heavy cover for big fish! Full day video and weigh in, all the deets and all the fish using big tungsten weights to target big bass on the bass capitol of the world Lake Okeechobee.
One of the best tournaments in Florida paying over $5k for the win. We managed 2nd place thanks to some awesome punching and flipping fish staked up in the mats. Go to baits was a Gambler Crawdaddy and Why Not (links below), heavy braided line, and heavy action fishing rods.
Conditions: sunny with partial clouds, highs in the 80’s and fish staging up to spawn.
junk fishing at it’s finest out on the caloosahatchee river. spring time transition with fish in the creeks as well as on the main river. putting the squarebill to use on bushes, eddies, and around creek mouths. tossing plastics like the ace and why not in the creeks to thicker cover.
Got out on the water with awesome Everglades guide Captain Shane Procell! Shane is a topwater connonsieur but he wanted to take a look at some of the close quarters flipping applications we use up on Lake Okeechobee to bust thru heavy cover. Fish being pre-spawn and moving to some the heavy stuff it was a great opportunity to punch some mats and canopied vegetation.
