There is nothing for fun for an angler than exploring a fishing tackle store! We walk thru GTO – Guntersville Tackle and Outdoors just down the street from Lake Guntersville. Paul the owner is stocked up with Gambler stuff for the upcoming free tournament September 28th and there’s also a bunch of cool local fishing lures! One of the most interesting things I found was a topwater chopper lure I’ve never seen before from Jackall and a Megabass Big M 4.0 Crankbaits, a monster squarebill crankbait which I can’t wait to try out grass fishing!
If there is one fishing technique I love it’s flipping and punching heavy cover for bass. And right now on Lake Guntersville the mats are stacked with bass to target with heavy Hawg Tech tungsten weights, a heavy action fishing rod, and big braid. You can do it too by targeting matted vegetation on your home lake or body of water, all you need to do is find vegetation that makes a canopy for bass to live under. We go through how to catch fish in heavy cover late summer though fall and you’re going to love they way they bite !!!
I love exploring tackle shops in the U.S. so we stopped at Hammond’s Fishing Center on Lake Lanier and did a walk thru. This tackle shop is crazy – it looks like a log cabin and is piled high with fishing lures, fishing rods, and even crazy epic live bait tanks with Herring, Minnows and more!!!! Tim owns Hammonds and he’s a good friend so he tooks some time to walk us through the shop and tell us a bit about fishing Lake Lanier, spotted bass, largemouth bass, and local custom swimbaits that I thought were crazy cool!
It’s time to update you about the awesome bass boat you helped me win from Uploaded Fishing last year! I’ve made some boat modifications, had some time to test out some equipment, and I’m ready to give you some updated feedback about the most epic thing I’ve ever won in my life!!! Not to mention, we threw in one of the funniest and most bizarre fishing stories I’ll ever have! Got some tackle organization tips, some diy bass boat mods, and some overall boat recommendations that hopefully will help you get your rig just a little bit more pimped out for bass fishing!

Gear I put on the boat and fun stuff it came with!!!
A walk through the new Triton BASS BOAT before all the mods and fishing tweaks we’ll be making to get her ready for her debut out on the lake. This boat is rigged up already with power poles, a jack plate, a bunch of accesories – but I’m going deck it out exactly the way I want to fish it. Also need some advice on both the boat and looking for a new truck to do some mini adventures to shoot video fishing for a few days here and there.
