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!
