At this rate I’ll never be a pro LOL!!!! We hit a new lake for a 1v1 head to head fishing challenge with my friend Charlie to see who could catch the biggest bass on a clear water lake we have NEVER been to! We used our Lowrance sonar and C Map to find structure and locate fish and then experimented with a variety of fishing lures. There is no doubt the highlight was a swimbait. Both Charlie and I ended up turning to a hollow body swimbait – styles and sizes below – rigged up with 3/4oz swimbait jig head with stout hook. The 1v1 competition added some fun and some hilarious smack talk to the whole fishing trip. Watch the whole vid to see who wins this challenge and what lures worked on this ultra clear lake!

This was one of the most unbelievable days fishing I’ve ever had. WE seriously saved her life by catching her choking on a giant carp on Lake Kissimmee! I was out with FLW Pro Tyler Woolcott and he snagged a fish with a trap fishing lure and it turned out she was choking on a fish she tried to eat. We saved her life by pulling the carp out of her mouth…serioulsy! I’ve only seen this twice before in all my fishing and each time the fish was choking on bream. I’ve never seen a fish eat something so big and seriously be on it’s way to other world. It’s suck a cool thing too, this fish was giant – all of 8-9lbs and without us catching her the way we did she would have never survived. I have spent a lot of time on the lake but I still run into some crazy things out on the water and this one was epic. Any time you can see a fish that big and play a role in saving her life is a good day on the lake, I can’t wait to see what our next adventure will bring

Some simple strategies for pre fishing Lake Okeechobee when targeting bass for a tournament. I’ll be fishing the RMMC tournament on Lake Okeechobee in a couple weeks so here are a couple ways I get started pre fishing when I can’t be on the water looking for bass. 2 awesome resources are Google Maps and Water Level graphs. They can tell you a whole bunch about the lake before you even start fishing it. Especially for guys like us that work during the week, getting a jump start on pre fishing and tournament prep is huge and all it takes is an internet connection and a computer!

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.

Caught it all on video with the GoPros, another epic tournament finish with my friend Donny Bass make sure to check him out https://www.facebook.com/donny.bass.3

Fished the Work Horse Tournament Trail bass derby yesterday and caught big fish for the tournament 7lbs 3oz and decided to put a new reel to the test for the first time tournament fishing. The reel I bought to try out for the first time was the KastKing Stealth http://amzn.to/2mT5srq I was pretty pleased – the reel comes in at a very comptitive price around $60 and frankly performs as well as my Lew’s Speed Spools which retail at $100.

The New No hook Wrecking Ball is pretty sweet.  It offers options for using different hooks, skirts and even some tweaks for targeting bass relating to structure and offshore cover.  Versatility – cast it or drag it – and for some reason it just gets more bites than your tradtitional Texas Rig or football jig.
