FAIL - 10 Pound Bass Comes Off At The Boat!!

Matt hooked a truly giant bass! The giant fish tail walked up and down the side of the boat giving huge head shakes as she went. Everything looked like it was going perfectly until disaster struck! No matter how much preparation you do, sometimes the big bass get away. Let's check it out...

This fish ate a heavy flipping jig rigged with a big senko as a trailer. Its not a traditional rig but its incredibly effective! Sometimes the key to getting big bites is just showing the bass something they haven't seen before. Think outside the box this Spring and you might get your own shot at a fish of a lifetime like this.

Whether you're fishing for monster bass with a 3/4 oz jig or downsizing to a little finesse jig, trying the senko as a trailer might be worth your time. Match a big jig with a 7" senko, smaller jig with a 5 or 6", etc. Below is a breakdown of the gear used in this video.
