I always share secrets and YouTuber Bass Quest threw down on some advanced lipless crankbait fishing. One of bass fishing’s oldest lures, a lipless crankbait can catch them anywhere and at anytime. The key though is the style of bait your fishing and technique you’re using to fish it. Bass Quest runs through all the details he looks at in lure choice and lays out what he uses to catch bass all year round.

We also continue our road trip fishing trip in Michigan with a fish fry and hang out with 2nd place finisher in the Uploaded Fishing bass boat competition.

Prep for the 2nd day of smallmouth bass fishing and what will become my best day of smallie fishing ever with 2 great YouTube anglers!

Punching Lake Okeechobee for bass is always epic and one of the most techniques when fishing for trophy largemouth bass. With Florida spring coming it’s time to brush up on our punching skills and lay out some of the inside details from fishing rods and reels, baits, terminal tackle, and fishing tips for where – when – and how to target bass in heavy vegetation.

On Lake Okeechobee the best time of year to use this fishing technique is from October to April – basically what most people call winter is an elongated spring pre-spawn period for fish. This means waves of bass staging and spawning throughout these months and punching is a great way to target them. in the vid we highlight how to fish for bass in emergent vegetation like cattails, bully whips, and lily pads, as well as mats like hydrilla, penny wort, and hyacinth. If you want to learn how to punch for bass it’s all right here.
