TacticalBassin's Crankbait Fishing Buyers Guide

Crankbait fishing for bass can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. You can do everything with one crankbait rod and catch a lot of fish or you can fine tune it into a variety of baits, rods, etc... and take it to another level.  In this fishing video we break down the gear and the baits that will let you push your bass fishing to new heights.

The Holiday Buyer's guide has already been a huge success! You requested a video on crankbait gear and we're delivering. If you have other interests please let us know and we'll continue the series.

Enormous Tackle Warehouse Unboxing

We usually stay away from the unboxing videos but once in a while an order is so ridiculous that people just want to have a peak inside. More imporantly its a great way to see what we're really using and that the information we share on Tacticalbassin is the real deal.

In this video Tim opens up an enormous tackle order he placed at Tackle Warehouse. (If you're doing the same, please consider using this link to get there so you can support Tacticalbassin while shopping http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/?from=tbassin ) He walks you through everything in the box and explains what the items are for. 

All of the baits shown in this video are effective during the Fall and the Winter Transition. Of course there are many others we already own and didn't need to stock up on but these are a great start. Below is a break down of the LONG list of baits and components that were in the box if you would like to take a look at them.
