46 lb Striper Eats a Swimbait!!

Watch this GIANT bass DESTROY Shawn's S-Waver 200 Swimbait! He's fast-cranking the bait in heavy current when the giant inhales it. Ever wondered what it looks and feels like to catch a true MONSTER Bass? You're about to experience it first hand!

These giant striped bass eat a tremendous amount of food to maintain their size. A large swimbait is an easy snack to these predators and the perfect lure to fool them. These fish don't reach these sizes by making mistakes but its hard for them to pass on a big swimbait. 

Shawn is a fishing guide that specializes in these monster bass. If you're interested in fishing with him in pursuit of a giant, you can contact him by email. He's currently booking trips for the fall bite. His email is buttebassin@gmail.com

3 Ways To Fish A Worm For Bass This Summer

Its time! These 3 methods are so effective and almost no one uses all of them. We aren't talking about how to rig your worm on a shaky head... we're talking about how to snap the rod tip to trigger a feeding frenzy, watching the rod to detect bites that the most sensitive rods can't feel, and more!

Summer time is prime time to fish a straight tail worm. We love to rig them on a shaky head and combine these 3 very different methods to trigger bites. The goal is to create a feeding frenzy so you can get bite after bite. Matt also breaks down where bass are positioning and how to choose the right areas.

Matt's Back! A Day Of Topwater Fishing!

Matt is recovering nicely from his horrible accident and the Doctors have cleared him to do some light fishing. Come along for a few action packed hours on Clearlake throwing topwater! The smoke from the Mendocino Complex Fire (The Largest fire in California's history) isn't going to keep us from setting the hook on some big bass!

Matt hit the water today after not being on his boat since mid May! He's a little rusty and has a long way to go to recovery but the fish still cooperated. He combined the buzzbait, hollow frog, and soft body frog to catch a handful of really nice bass. Pay close attention to the tips on rigging a buzzbait and the best hook for frog fishing.
