One of the keys to consistent success is to match the hatch. Learn what the fish in your lake like to eat. If they eat shad, kokanee, trout, bluegill, crappie, or other baitfish you can choose the baits that will best trigger those bass into feeding. 

Matt also explains how to fire up a school of fish and creating a feeding mentality. Using this method you can use the behavior of small fish to trigger giant fish into feeding aggressively, even when they don't want to bite!

Depending on the food the bass are eating Matt explains how to target them by fishing swimbaits and glidebaits, jig fishing, or switching to reactive baits like the swimbait, underspin, or jerkbait. The last method we recommend using to catch trophy bass is night fishing. We break down how to catch those night fish with swimbaits, swim jigs, or jigs (jig and pig). 

If you use these tips and tricks to catch bigger bass, you're going to have an amazing year on the water! Trophy bass fishing doesn't have to be a mystery. These are the exact baits and methods we use to catch bigger fish and you can use them too!

Fishing muddy water is second nature to many anglers but if you're a Western fisherman these recent storms have completely changed the way you fish. Don't be afraid of the rising muddy water as our lakes hit flood stage. The bass are adapting to their new home and will continue to feed. 

Which Color Lures Should You Be Using This Spring?

Don't let murky water or changing conditions keep you from catching fish! Matt explains how to simplify your color selection and adapt to changing water clarity when fishing in the Spring.

Remember the key to success during Spring fishing is to simplify and focus on key color combinations. By applying simple principals to color selection you'll be able to spend more time fishing effectively.  Don't let cold, muddy water scare you. Bass still need to feed and by adapting from ghost colors to bold colors you can easily trigger those bass into a frenzy.

Crazy Underwater Video!! | Freediving With World Record Bass!

We teamed up with world renowned freediver, Paul Young, to get footage of the World's biggest Spotted Bass in their natural habitat! Watch and learn as we study these schools of fish.


Its amazing to think that you can literally dive underwater and come face to face with spotted bass that are bigger than the world record bass. They're down there, they just haven't been caught yet! 

Huge Thanks to Paul for sharing this amazing underwater fishing video with us! If you'd like to follow Paul's exploits you can see him here:

Want to shoot your own underwater video? Here's what you'll need:

The Camera: http://bit.ly/2iwZqqU
The Housing: http://bit.ly/2kyPQbn
The Filter: http://bit.ly/2lqsczo

Getting to watch underwater video like this is an amazing way to learn about bass behavior. Whether your lake has spotted bass, largemouth bass, or smallmouth bass it really doesn't matter. The behavior patterns are similar enough that you can gleen knowledge by watching these fish in their natural habitat. 

We were fascinated to see the giant bass breaking away from the schools and using shadows from cover, trees, grass, etc. to conceal themselves. We can definitely put that to work the next time we're trying to figure out where to fish!
