Matt Broke His PB with a MONSTER!

GIANT BASS on BIG SWIMBAITS! Does it get any better??? Come along for a first person look as Matt and Shawn chase down GIANT Striped bass with glide baits!

Breaking a personal best is a rare opportunity, to do it back-to-back, incredible! Its hard to convey just how hard these fish hit, how much power they have, and how tenacious they are with their fight. If you've never had the opportunity to fish for giant striper you need to try it!

Thank you for coming along for this special moment! The two striper weighed 31.6 lbs and 38.0 lbs respectively and both fell for the same glide bait. The key to success with fish of this caliber is having quality equipment. If you come after them with standard bass tackle, sub-par knots, and stock hooks you're going to lose every time. If you take the time to upgrade hardware, tie clean connection knots, and replace worn line, you stand a great chance of being successful when the fish of a lifetime hits!

Two Bites, Two Fish, 55 lbs!!!

CRAZIEST FIGHT EVER! Two Stripers weighing a combined 55 lbs both smashed glide baits at the same time! The amount of power these fish had was incredible! Come along for the ride!

Even guys that don't like fishing for Striped Bass know how hard they can pull. There is no denying the torque these fish can put on your equipment! Add in some current and you better hold on tight! These two monsters bit back to back on glide baits and went ballistic!

 Here is the equipment the guy's used to tame the fish...

Explorer Glide Bait by Baitsanity - Swimbait Review

If you're a swimbait fisherman this video is for you! Its not very often we pick up a bait and start catching big bass right away. The Explorer Glide is one of those baits we "connected" with and we felt compelled to do this review and share our experiences with you.

 Matt caught a 31 lb Striped Bass on his 3rd cast with this swimbait and that was only the beginning! Its a true swimbait at 9.5" in length and 5 ounces in total weight. It is offered in two colors (Trout and Carp) and we've been told there will be a variety of tail options available in the future.

You'll need a dedicated rod designed for this style of fishing to throw the bait effectively but if you're into throwing big baits, this is a bait you need to check out!
