Do You Want to Catch a Giant Bass?

Matt was invited to do a seminar at this year's International Sportsman's Exposition. His topic was the same as last year, but it came with a twist. Instead of giving a demonstration people had already seen Matt broke it into two seminars in one. The first focused on FOOLING a trophy bass, the second focused on TRIGGERING a trophy bass.

For those that weren't able to see it in person, Tim was able to video the entire seminar. This Tacticalbassin exclusive video gives you a front row seat to the entire 46 minute seminar covering both topics. Enjoy!

In this video you'll discover that targeting trophy bass is easiest when you separate them based on what they eat and target them accordingly. In other words, you don't throw the same baits for a bass that primarily eats trout that you would for a bass that primarily eats bluegill. Additionally, you throw different baits if you want to fool them than you throw if you want to trigger them.

The baits that are going to be broken down in this video can be found below...

Natural Baits to FOOL a trophy bass:

-The Huddleston is a great swimbait that is widely available and has fooled countless trophy bass.

-The Jig with Beaver Trailer is another deadly option for targeting trophy class fish

-The JSJ Hitch 6 Softbait is a new swimbait that perfectly mimics a baitfish, great for getting those monster bites!

-The California SwimJig has been catching giants for years, if you haven't added it to your arsenal yet the time has come.

REACTIVE Baits for Trophy Bass:

-S-Waver 168 and 200 are both GREAT options for triggering a trophy!

-The Flash Pointer 115 or Vision 110 both put trophy bass in the boat when used properly.

-The Magnum Fluke is an overlooked bait that puts monster bass in the boat!

The LV-500 Lipless crankbait is a western secret to target monster bass. This isn't a regular lipless and we don't fish it like you'd expect.
