Summer Bass Fishing: Senko And Frog Fishing Tricks

Wacky rig vs. Texas rig; which Senko will the bass prefer tonight? Surprise! The wind kicked up and the senko fishing is tough. Matt turns to a new hollow frog he's never used before to quickly load the boat. Summer fishing is all about adapting to conditions and choosing the right bait for the job, come along as Matt makes the best of a Summer evening on Clear Lake.

Matt hit the water with a simple plan. He rigged three rods and planned for a fun evening of senko fishing. While idling out he quickly realized conditions had changed and big waves were waiting to great him on the main lake. It took some adapting but his three baits all proved successful once he located a calmer area with fish holding along grass and shadow lines.

Below is a breakdown of the gear used in today's video. Matt included the baits with color recommendations, some bonus rigging options, as well as his gear.
