Dock Fishing Made Easy - How To Catch EVERY Bass!

Stop wasting casts and scaring fish!  These tricks will change the way you approach docks, the casts you make, and the fish you will catch. Ever wondered how many fish are really under the docks? You're about to find out! 

Tim uses a handful of baits but his method is very simple. He approaches docks from the outside in, and darkest shadows to lightest shadows. He also treats shadows and shadow edges the same way he does a piece of hard cover. 

By mixing finesse and reaction baits and fishing the key cover pieces, you will effectively reach every single fish under the dock. These tricks work!  Stop making the easy casts, catching the small fish, and scaring the big ones. Use these tips to immediately improve your catch rates.

Spring Jerkbait Fishing: Beginner and Advanced Tips!

Ready to "Trigger" fish to bite like never before?! These tips are the real deal! Learn to force bass to react instead of waiting for them to want to bite. The power of a properly fished jerkbait is unlike any other lure. 


The jerk bait draws on a bass' core response. It can trigger an instinctual feeding response from a fish, regardless of their desire to bite. You're about to learn how to use a jerk bait to its fullest potential! Be sure to pay careful attention to the portion on how to work the baits with crisp snaps rather than slow pulls. 

There are a lot of great baits on the market but some seem to be more consistent than others. Below is a list of the baits we fish with confidence from prespawn to postspawn. 

Large baits...
Megabass Kanata: http://bit.ly/2jG4Q85
Jackall Rerange 130: http://bit.ly/2ge0qED
Megabass Vision 110 Magnum: http://bit.ly/2vdZOWf

Smaller baits...
Jackall Rerange 110: http://bit.ly/2ge0qED
Lucky Craft Flash Pointer SP 115 and 100: http://bit.ly/2aHz588
Lucky Craft Staysee 90: http://bit.ly/2dBzMmz
Damiki Striker 90: http://bit.ly/2FeVW7I

Replacement Hooks and components...
Treble Hooks- Gamakatsu Finesse Nano Treble (Size 4,5,6): http://bit.ly/2dWWAut
Owner Hyperwire Split Ring (Size 2 and 3): http://bit.ly/2v8ArBX

Jerkbait Storage...
Bass Mafia Casket 3700: http://bit.ly/2fg5ouM
Plano Waterproof 3740: http://bit.ly/2fvjcFB

Matt's Jerkbait Combo...
Rod- Shimano Expride 6'10" Medium: http://bit.ly/2nTq9FL
Reel- Aldebaran 50: http://bit.ly/2fdX1Uy
Line- Sunline Assassin 12 lb: http://bit.ly/2h4LNjm

All-Around Jerkbait Combo...
Rod- Shimano Zodias 6'10" Medium: http://bit.ly/2cgmMAe
Reel- Curado 70 7:1 ratio: http://bit.ly/2apmDJt
Line- 20 lb Sufix 832: http://bit.ly/2ae93Ji
Leader- 12 lb Maxima Ultragreen: http://bit.ly/2ae97J9

Softbaits and hooks...
Zoom Super Fluke: http://bit.ly/2aqys0H
1/0 Finesse Wide Gap Hook: http://bit.ly/2aKGmHM
Owner CPS Spring Medium: http://bit.ly/2b2YgDf
Gamakatsu Superline 4/0 EWG Hook: http://bit.ly/2ac92XG

The "nose rig" method for the fluke is very simple. Take the medium CPS spring and screw it directly into the nose of the fluke. Once fully twisted into the nose take the 1/0 hook and thread it through the nose of the bait AND the spring. The will give you maximum action and longevity. For the superfine hook its just a simple Texas rigged presentation. ________________________________________________________________

Bass Moving Shallow? No Problem With These 5 Baits!

The Bass flood into the shallows every Spring to feed and spawn. With the shallow water comes a whole new set of problems. Shallow snags, finicky bass, vegetation, and thick cover can all make it difficult to catch Bass in Spring. Instead of fighting it, embrace the shallow water this year!


These baits make it easy to fish shallow! We use a 2-part system, combining power and finesse to coax bass into biting. When one doesn't work, the other certainly will. Throw in a couple really unique baits and fall rates and you've got a sure system that will produce bites throughout the coming months!

Spawning Bass Tips! Muddy Water? Cold Water? No Problem!

Forget the old rules! This isn't about white baits and spawning coves! Muddy Water? Cold Water? Get ready!! its about finding bass before everyone else, in places no one else looks, and catching fish when no one else even knows the spawn is happening! 

We all grew up reading about how to catch bass during the spawn. We don't need to cover the basics again (we already did that in previous videos). Today we want to completely change the way you approach spawning fish. 

Let's talk about cold water spawns, targeting bass in muddy water, and even false spawns in the Fall. Get ready!
