Bass Fishing For GIANT Smallmouth | Swimbaits, Crankbaits and 100 Mile Runs!

100 miles through floating debris fields, 44 degree temps, but the Smallmouth were chewing! Tim caught his 7 lber the evening before so no matter what was in front of us we were going to make it back for more!

The smallmouth were sitting on current seams and ledges in 5 to 18 feet of water. We used a combination of swimbaits and crankbaits to trigger the schools into feeding and then the slugfest began! This was one of the most viscious feeding sessions we've ever seen with smallmouth bass.

Teckel Sprinker Frog | Insane Slow Motion Blow Ups!

We tried the new Teckel Sprinker Frog this week and the fish were going crazy! The bites were explosive and the impacts were insane!

The Sprinker combines the weedless benefits of a hollow body frog with the sound of a whopper plopper style bait. Now you can cover water, draw fish in from a larger area, but still still fish over the top of vegetation. Its a great combination! 

If you haven't tried the Sprinker yet, tie one and see how the bass in your lake react to a new sound and movement they've never seen around the mats before. Good luck!

River Fishing Trophy Smallmouth On Crankbaits | How To Catch Bass In Current

Big bass are stacked up in moving water, how would you catch them? We decided on a crankbait and it was a blast! We started a feeding frenzy and the fish were lining up for their turn at the deep diving crankbait!

We were positioning our boat downstream and working the crankbaits with the current along the edges of current breaks and seams. Most of the fish ate the crankbait on the pause, resulting in hard hooksets to catch up to them on the slack line that was drifting in the current. The current was fast but the smallmouth were even faster!

There is something special about getting away from the lakes and bass fishing in creeks, streams, and rivers. Its a peaceful change of pace from our typical fishing experience. If you get a chance to get out and catch smallmouth in current be sure and do it, you won't regret it!
