My first ever Michigan smallmouth fishing ULTRA CLEAR natural lakes on my fishing road trip to the north!!! Big thanks to YouTuber Benjamin Nowak for making this happen – it was a grind but that’s what makes fishing for bass such a passionate and emotional sport! Keys for the day were fishing hard baits rip baits however my first ever ULTRA CLEAR lake bass was caught on a Ned Rig right at the end of the day. It’s finally spring in Michigan and these fish are a pre spawn and staging to spawn mode.

Stay tuned for some advanced Lipless Crankbait tips from YouTuber Bass Quest and then day 2 of the #SeekingBronze tour which will turn out INSANE!

Took an awesome SUBSCRIBER out fishing for bass and we crushed it. Caught my 2nd biggest PB fish EVER! The crazy part is how I caught her – I seem to have a reputation for catching giant fish on accicdent, you have to see it to believe it!

A little about the SUBSCRIBER: Brent is a family man from the west coast of Florida and Tampa Bay Lightning fan (double thumbs up there!!!!). Wanted to learn some fishing tips and techniques for searching for bass and catching them outside your traditional Florida fishing patterns…..and maybe bet a shot at a PB bass! He got super close to breaking his PB in this vid but you’ll have to tune in for part 2 to see if we shatter his PB with a giant Florida largemouth!

40lbs+ 5 fish limit of bass fishing the juice – what just happened!!? This is insane, fishing techniques aside we are on the best lake in the country right now and the best spot for huge fish I think I’ll ever find! Once again getting reaction strikes from fish using crankbaits in deeper water deflection off shell and focusing on an underwater point, these fish are moving up to spawn and they all seem to be stuck in this small area and they are the biggest fish on the lake. My goals was to target a mega giant fish but when you’re catching nothing but 8lbs+ bass in Florida how can you stop fishing for them. This is literally the best fishing I’ll ever experience in my life so I’m going to live it up as long as I possibly can. We have them dialed in and they’re eating just as long as you’re using the right fishing technique and presenting the lure correctly!

The first Gambler Gear Up fishing package is out and I got my hands on one early! It includes 14 bags of Gambler fishing baits all selected by pro angler JT Kenney as well as a 5 Liter Gambler Tek Dry Bag and a Gambler Buff.

Want yours? Get it here: http://www.gambler-lures.com/product_p/gub1.htm

I go through and look at the colors and bait styles incorporated in the package. I also look at some of the fishing techniques and applications I use these types of baits for. I like JT Kenney and really agree with his fishing bait picks especially if you’re looking to simplify what kinds of plastics you have with you for fishing a range of lakes and bodies of water. These are the right colors and the right styles to do anything from fish shallow grass to targeting offshore bass.
