Matt's Back! A Day Of Topwater Fishing!

Matt is recovering nicely from his horrible accident and the Doctors have cleared him to do some light fishing. Come along for a few action packed hours on Clearlake throwing topwater! The smoke from the Mendocino Complex Fire (The Largest fire in California's history) isn't going to keep us from setting the hook on some big bass!

Matt hit the water today after not being on his boat since mid May! He's a little rusty and has a long way to go to recovery but the fish still cooperated. He combined the buzzbait, hollow frog, and soft body frog to catch a handful of really nice bass. Pay close attention to the tips on rigging a buzzbait and the best hook for frog fishing. 

Here is the gear Matt was using...

Derek's Update - Prayers Needed! Surgery Today!

Thank you all for supporting Derek! For those that missed the previous video, Derek Sonnenfelt is a subscriber and member of the TacticalBassin family. A few weeks ago he was at a grocery store when an elderly man hit the wrong pedal, jumped a curb, and pinned Derek between his car and a concrete wall. 

Derek's leg will be amputated today (July 28th). The 3 hour surgery is scheduled from noon to three (Pacific Time). Your prayers are needed! We are praying for the doctor's wisdom as they make decisions that could alter the rest of Derek's life. We also pray for peace for Derek and his family throughout both the surgery and the recovery period after. 

For those that want to continue to support Derek and his son through this time, a Go Fund Me has been set up. 

The Tacticalbassin community has come around Derek already but he needs all the help he can get. Adapting to life as an amputee will take time. If you feel compelled to support him financially use the link below. 

GoFundMe for Derek: http://bit.ly/2zrPkVY

We appreciate you! THANK YOU for being a part of the TacticalBassin family!

Matt Allen & Tim Little
