How To Catch Striped Bass

From Topwater to Swimbaits, we show you how to target big striped bass! If you've ever wanted to catch Striper on artificial lures, this information will help you be more successful. Come along for an exciting day on the water!

We begin throwing big swimbaits in the early morning hours. As the day unfolds we transition to a combination of swimbaits, topwater both big and small, and swim jigs. This combination allowed us to maximize our time on the water, increase or shot a big bites, without catching too many smaller fish.

Traditional striper fishing involves cut bait, rattle traps, and small topwater lures. These are all incredibly effective ways to catch striped bass, but they're not great ways to consistently TARGET Big Striped Bass. We use a combination of swimbaits and topwater to eliminate the smaller bites and more effectively target the big bass that we're searching for.

The Chatterbait is one of the best bass fishing lures of all time! Its easy to use, even beginners catch bass on them. So why is one guy consistently catching bigger fish on a Chatterbait than everyone else? Are you the guy that's catching them or the guy that's wondering why someone else is?

How To Catch The Biggest Bass In The Lake | Full Seminar 2018

Matt Allen teaches you step-by-step how to catch the biggest fish in the lake. From swimbaits, to jigs, to reaction baits, he teaches you the techniques and tricks you'll need to fool the biggest bass in your lake. 

Its not complicated and anyone can do it, once you understand how to "trigger" a feeding response from bass instead of waiting for them to bite. From A-rigs to jerkbaits, jigs, and of course giant swimbaits, you'll learn exactly what it takes to consistently catch big bass. 

This year the tank was extremely crowded (Thank you to each and every one of you that joined us in person for this seminar! We couldn't do this without you and we're so grateful you took time out of your day to come see us!) Because of the crowded conditions we were not able to get camera angles on the tank to show the fish's reactions to the bait. We apologize for the single camera angle but we hope you enjoy the information!
