Boat Flipping Frog fish!

Want to boat flip your fish instead of using a net? Stop breaking rods! Stop hurting fish! We're going to quickly teach you how to boat flip safely and consistently. The next time you're on the water with heavy tackle and want to flip a fish, you're going to know exactly what to do! 

The technique of flipping fish into the boat instead of lipping them or using a net is very simple. Once you've learned the method you can replicate it over and over. Whether using heavy tackle and braided line or moderate tackle with mono or fluorocarbon, you can do this effectively. 

Below, we've broken down the gear we were using in this video. We're also going to include a handful of product lines from different companies that we recommend for boat flipping. Keep in mind that "higher end" tackle tends to be more brittle than "lower end" product so the key is to find the product lines that offer the best compromise of sensitivity, strength, and consistency.

Summer Bass Fishing: How To Catch Deep Schooling Bass

Summer is here and the big bass are moving off shore to deeper water. Has it left you stumped, wondering how to catch them? Tim explains where the fish are headed, how they position, and what baits are most effective for this style of fishing.

Start by locating tapering points, ledges, and areas that have quick deep water access. Once you've located these likely areas you're already ahead of the curve. Using electronics you can quickly locate the "sweet spot" where the fish are sitting on that piece of structure. If you don't have electronics you simply need to put in some time, fish the entire structure, until you begin catching fish. 

Below is a breakdown of the baits Tim has confidence in for locating and activating these schools of fish.

Easy Tips To Catch Shallow Bass All Summer

Summer has arrived! Should  you go out deep or move up shallow? If you want to have fun, its time to head shallow! The question is how shallow should you go and how do you catch them? We're here to tell you EXACTLY how to catch those bass!

The key to fishing shallow in the Summer is to understand when and how the bass feed. They typically feed aggressively early and late in the day but that doesn't mean you can't target them all day long. By combining aggressive reaction baits with slower, more methodical approaches you can catch fish all day long, all summer long.

Where Do Bass Go After They Spawn? (And How To Catch Them)

Post Spawn is the MOST DIFFICULT time of the year to consistently locate bass but not with these tips! Tim explains the bass' movement back to deep water as well as up into the shallows. 

The biggest mistake anglers make this time of year is targeting the shallow bass or the deep bass instead of targeting BOTH. If you can locate both groups and learn to predict their future movements, you'll consistently catch bass all the way through Fall. 

Shallow bass are much more cover oriented than deep bass and typically do not roam far. Deep bass tend to gather in schools but move rapidly from place to place in search of food. Finding the "sweet spots" where ideal cover is present on ideal structure with a food source is all it takes. Once you've located one of these areas you're set! If the food moves the bass will follow but by understanding the need for deep water access on main lake structure with cover present you can quickly relocate them. 

Below are a list of our favorite baits for both deep and shallow fishing from the post spawn through the summer months.
