In this video, we explore the southern bays of Lake Ontario and catching some #bruiser Smallmouth and Largemouth bass on big spider jigs. Although we had some local information leading up to our trip, conditions changed and we had to make adjustments. In the end, we had a great time and caught lots of bass over 4 pounds.
Here’s a quick and easy bass fishing tip to help you present your lure to suspended fish. Yeah… it’s old school, but that’s what makes it work so well. Were using a Keitech Fat Swing Impact 2.8″ on a 1/4 ounce jig head and counting it down to a specific depth to trigger strikes from smallmouth bass that are keying in on open water baitfish.
In today’s highly pressured and competitive bass fishing world, you can no longer just master one type of fishing technique or lure. If you do, when the checks are handed out at the end of a long day, your name will not be called. You need to be skilled in as many techniques as you can learn. If you have noticed over the past few years, some of the biggest names in Professional Bass Fishing who once where known for fishing specific baits such as jigs, crankbaits or topwaters have started winning tournaments by fishing other baits. You have to look at your tackle box the way a mechanic looks at his toolbox.
Have you ever been a guided bass fishing trip? If you haven’t, you might be missing out on some of the best fishing around the country. While the rest of us are holding down the typical 9 to 5 job, these guys are on the water almost every day… they have to… because it’s their job.
Now before you head out and book a trip, take some time and do your research. When selecting a guide, ask for references and make sure to contact them and find out how they liked their fishing experience. Not all guides were created equal and some should seek another line of work.
