12 Lb Bass On A Jerkbait! Full Story, Tips, and Bonus Footage

Matt stuck a 12 lb bass on a Pointer 100 Jerkbait!! Check out the footage of this MONSTER Bass! While telling the story of the catch, Matt gives insights into "triggering" bites and how it can change your big bass game forever.

Bass fishing is all about catching fish. We're taught that if you use the right bait the fish will be fooled into biting. But what if thats the wrong approach? What if "fooling" the bass is a mistake? There is a world of difference between "fooling" and "triggering" and you need to know the difference. 

The end of the video is packed full of knowledge about TRIGGERING bites. Listen closely and you might be holding a monster bass on your next fishing trip!

Matt's Biggest Limit | 51 lbs with a 12 lb Kicker!

Catching a 51 lb limit for 5 bass is an experience of a lifetime. Doing it with a camera crew while filming for Trev Gowdy's Monster Fish was amazing! To top it off, the day before they had a 25+ limit of smallmouth bass! 

The number one question we get asked is can you see the show? It still airs from time to time but we don't have a hard copy of it. Be sure to record "Monster Fish" if you want to see it!

We were so blessed to catch even one giant bass on a swimbait but to catch a huge limit, and in only 3 hours was truly amazing! Trev Gowdy also go the biggest bass of his life that day. If you ever get the chance to fish big swimbaits , give it a try, you just never know what could happen! 

The Story Of Matt's 12+ Lber From Shore!

Do you want to catch a 10 lb bass? Are you a bank fisherman who doesn't own a boat? We didn't always own bass boats either. There was a time when we were sneaking into ponds and creeks in search of anywhere we might catch a bass. Check out this story of Matt catching a bass that was 15+ lbs from the Shore of a local pond!!

Sorry we don't have the video to match but this fish lit the fire that led to the addiction that became Tactical Bassin! We know some anglers don't care for bedfishing and others don't but his was early on in Matt's fishing career and was the bass that inspired his addiction to trophy bass fishing!

What can you learn from this story? ANYONE can catch a giant bass if you put your time in. Whether or not you have a boat, whether or not you have the best gear, your time will come. Stick to it, keep fishing, and one day you're going to get your shot at the fish of a lifetime!
