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.

10 Pound Bass Gets Tangled In The Anchor! | A Monster Fish Story!

Matt worked a MONSTER BEDFISH for over 8 hours before finally hooking her! When she finally bit she ended up tangled in the anchor... listen to the story for all the crazy details!

If working the fish for over 8 hours wasn't enough, he didn't even know when he got bit! Somehow after all of that, the monster bass found its way to the boat. Matt may be an effective angler today but he learned by making all the mistakes. Just remember, when it feels like nothing is going right, your next monster bass might be just around the corner!

Bedfishing during the spawn is often controversial but it doesn't need to be. When done responsibly its a great opportunity to catch a fish of a lifetime without damaging the resource. Treat the fish with the utmost respect and return them to the water immediately.  

10 Pounder on the Lipless Crankbait!

Tim hit Clearlake between storms and got rewarded with a MONSTER BASS! In this video he explains exactly what went in to catching this 10 lb trophy bass!

For years we've preached how effective lipless crankbaits like the LV-500 are at catching trophy size bass. In this video Tim explains how he targeted a school of prespawn bass and was able to catch the biggest bass in the school by triggering her with the crankbait.
