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.

Below is a breakdown (in no particular order) of all the gear the guys were using in today's video...

Matt Catches an 11 lber! Full Catch Footage!

This GIANT SWIMBAIT was no match for this 11 pound Largemouth! She completely inhaled the big bait! Matt was fishing Clear lake, throwing a Huddleston swimbait on a deep rock ledge when the big bass hit. 

Swimbaits are still intimidating to a lot of bass fishermen. Something about throwing that giant bait just crushes their confidence and fills them with doubt but as you can see in this video, they really do work. Its not complicated, its not difficult, its about consistency. If you consistently throw the big bait, you will eventually encounter a monster bass while she is feeding. You can do it!

The Only Time an 11 Lber Was a Let Down...

The night started like any other as we searched for trophy bass in the dark. But on this night things were going to go so right and so wrong in ways we never saw coming. A bent out hook cost us a MONSTER Bass!

Fishing for trophy bass is never easy so when you get a bite its very important that you do everything you can to capitalize and get that big bass in the boat. Unfortunately sometimes you do everything right and the bass still wins the battle.

Remember there are a lot of variables that are outside of your control when fishing for big bass. Make sure that you're putting the odds in your favor by preparing your gear and using the best equipment you can for the job. Sharp hooks, strong line, the right rod and reel, are all essential to your success. You can't control what the bass is going to do but you can make sure your gear is ready for the fight.
