About the author


  1. Nice high level presentation.Β  too many factors involved to be as simple as you make it sound.Β  Current, wind, fronts, barometric pressure, temp, rain/flooding, lake elevations, tournament pressure.

  2. Was the thumbnail intentional?

    In the fall bass think with their mouths (gorging on baitfish)

    In winter they think with their stomachs( chasing after big meals , slow lethargic like when we eat alot)

    In spring they think with their crotches (spawn)

    And in summer they think with their tails( aggressive, super active)

  3. is this the same kind of general movement for all fish or do other fish have different patterns throughout the seasons? Could you do a seasonal behavior for other fish l8ike trout crappie catfish etc

  4. Great bass fishing video. You literally summed up a majority of the questions I'm constantly thinking about when bass fishing. Your time and effort in this video does not go unnoticed bud. Thanks and keep up the great work

  6. So for pre-spawn, like it is now in SC, would it be good to through a med. depth crankbait (2-6ft)? Thanks ​and your videos are great and I subscribed!

  7. I tell you what!
    I use a 4" watermelon red lizard in Spring and absolutely crush most size Largemouth. 1lb to 5lb range in the Northern CA area. As spring starts into Summer a Frog will produce the big 6lb to 10lb bass which is huge in my area. Also using a much larger Lizard will produce bigger fish. Don't ever count out the effectiveness of a small presentation bait in Spring. Bass do not give a crap!
