Fall Bass Fishing with Underspins and Swimbaits

This time of year is all about schooling bass. If you can find the schools, you can catch a ton of fish in a hurry! In this video Matt and Tim head to Lake Berryessa, a fishery they haven't visited in months. They start out working scattered fish but it doesn't take long to locate the schools of offshore, deep water Bass and that's when the fun starts!

The guys use a combination of topwater, finesse swimbaits, and good electronics to initially locate the bass. Once they find the school they begin using a combination of spoons, underspins, swimbaits, and tail spinners to keep the fish fired up.

Offshore bass fishing, especially for suspended fish, is one of the most technical ways to fish. But don't let that scare you, as you can see in this video its not that difficult to get these fish biting.

How To Skip Under Docks & Trees

These are the tricks you need to know to skip your jig wayyyy back under cover. If you're the guy fishing the edges of docks and fronts of trees, your fishing is about to change! Tim goes in depth with the methods he uses to consistently reach deep into the dark corners of overhead cover.

Skipping is an amazing way to catch bass that no one else is even fishing for. Once mastered, you can reach fish so far back in the shadows that they're rarely approached. The method is best learned with a spinning rod but ultimately can be done with virtually any tackle.

Below is a breakdown of the rods, reels, and lures that Tim is using to skip in this video:

Flutter Spoons: Everything You Need To Know

Flutter spoons are AWESOME Summer and Fall baits for targeting bass that are feeding on baitfish. The technique remains a mystery for most anglers but Tim has refined his methods for both rigging and fishing this unique style of spoon. In this video he breaks down all the details to help you become successful with a Flutter Spoon. 

Whether you want to throw a small 4" spoon, the standard 6" or the giant Magnum spoons, these tips will help you be more successful. Tim breaks down several different retrieves as well as the rigging you'll need to hook more of your bites. 

Below is a breakdown of Tim's favorite spoons. The main difference between brands of spoon is thickness and weight. You'll want to try several of them to experiment with fall rates and figure out if the fish you're targeting prefer a faster or slower fall.

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.
