How To Catch GIANT Bass **Day on the Water**

Watch and learn as Tim breaks off a MONSTER bass then turns around and catches her again! Spring is prime time to catch these huge fish and Tim shows exactly how it can be done. He uses a combination of swimbaits and sight fishing to coax a bunch of really nice fish into biting including the 8+ lber. Its hard to keep your focus when a big one comes off but Tim shows first hand that keeping your cool can pay big dividends!

Tim is on Clearlake for a day of big bass fishing. He's invited us along to take part as he searches high and low for the right fish. Pay close attention as he chooses different baits to catch the fish and also to the colors he decides to use. As he's explained in the past, no two bedfish are the same so its important to have a variety of baits at your disposal.
