Matt Catches a HUGE Double Digit bass with his Dad!

Come along as Matt and his Dad catch an 11 lb bass! The guys dial in the pattern as they search for the big females during the spawn. There are a lot of buck males on beds but most of the quality fish are out over offshore grass beds. The guys piece together the pattern and have fun exploring the lake after not fishing there together for more than 10 years!

The spawn is one of the best times of year to catch a new personal best. There are huge fish moving up in predictable locations and they're willing to be caught if you're prepared. If they move up on the beds you can target them while looking at the fish but even if they haven't moved up you can target them by fishing just offshore over grass beds, structure, or on the adjacent secondary points.

10 lb Bass Caught From The Kayak!

Matt returns to where he caught his 17 pound bass for the first time in a decade and catches a 10 lber!!! Come along for a day of Spring Bass fishing on the Kayak as the guys explore a new (old) lake and piece together the bite.

3 completely different patterns emerge during the course of the day. They guys catch fish throwing a big swimbait, a jerkbait, and a creature. We've said many times before that the key to successful Spring bass fishing is being willing to adapt. Being willing to leave biting fish in search of bigger bites is also important.

Matt said "It was truly incredible to return to a lake after such a long break and find the bass in similar locations, willing to bite similar lures. It was as if the years had never passed." While history fishing (fishing a spot or a lure based on unrelated past experiences) is often looked down upon there are times when it can be incredibly effective! History fishing is a great starting point as long as you don't stay locked in to those previous patterns when they're not producing.

Below is a breakdown of the baits and gear the guys were using during the day on the water.
