EPIC Trip Back East! | Major Lesson In Bass Fishing History

Matt just got back from an awesome fishing trip in Kentucky and Tennessee! He met up with some great guys and fished a bunch of lakes, even fishing a tournament on Dale Hollow! What he didn't expect, was to be hit so hard by the historical significance of these amazing fisheries!

There are a bunch of fishing videos coming from the trip, including a first-person perspective from the Billy Westmoreland Invitational Tournament. In the meantime, Matt got in front of the camera to share his thoughts and experiences from the trip. He got a lot more than he bargained for when he walked back through the history of Smallmouth Bass fishing in Tennessee and he shares his perspective in this video. 

Wondering what TacticalBassin methods caught fish during the trip? Below is a list of the baits that the guys were able to catch fish on while road tripping for a week.

TacticalBassin Put To The Test In The Midwest!

Brutal Rain, Cold, and Wind settled in over Michigan but the guys from TacticalBassin still found active fish. Come along for a Wet and Windy trip! You might just see them catch a few on Topwater when its 40 degrees outside!

The plan was to spend some time on the Crystal Clear waters of Northern Michigan catching Smallmouth and shooting video with a handful of great anglers. The reality was a storm that reached from Northern Canada all the way to Florida and seemed to be centered perfectly over Michigan. Day after day the rains continued to pour until we couldn't stand it anymore and had to get out on the water!

You'd have expected a slow bite but that wasn't the case. While it was difficult to film it wasn't difficult to get bit. From swimbaits to Topwater, those Smallmouth and Largemouth bass were feeding up before Winter arrived!
