The Biggest Fish I've Ever Hooked From Shore!

Its a GIANT! Cast To Catch of a monster Striped Bass that ate the swimbait while we were standing on shore. The situation goes from bad to worse when the big bass decides to head up stream and we can't follow her! 

We get requests for banking fishing videos all the time. We love shore fishing because it offers some distinct advantages. The ability to creep up on wary fish without being detected is key to consistently getting big bites. However, this fish was in a different class and we were very lucky we didn't have to follow her with the boat. 

This fish fell for a glide bait. Below Is a breakdown of the gear Matt and Shawn were using.

Matt Broke His PB with a MONSTER!

GIANT BASS on BIG SWIMBAITS! Does it get any better??? Come along for a first person look as Matt and Shawn chase down GIANT Striped bass with glide baits!

Breaking a personal best is a rare opportunity, to do it back-to-back, incredible! Its hard to convey just how hard these fish hit, how much power they have, and how tenacious they are with their fight. If you've never had the opportunity to fish for giant striper you need to try it!

Thank you for coming along for this special moment! The two striper weighed 31.6 lbs and 38.0 lbs respectively and both fell for the same glide bait. The key to success with fish of this caliber is having quality equipment. If you come after them with standard bass tackle, sub-par knots, and stock hooks you're going to lose every time. If you take the time to upgrade hardware, tie clean connection knots, and replace worn line, you stand a great chance of being successful when the fish of a lifetime hits!

Explorer Glide Bait by Baitsanity - Swimbait Review

If you're a swimbait fisherman this video is for you! Its not very often we pick up a bait and start catching big bass right away. The Explorer Glide is one of those baits we "connected" with and we felt compelled to do this review and share our experiences with you.

 Matt caught a 31 lb Striped Bass on his 3rd cast with this swimbait and that was only the beginning! Its a true swimbait at 9.5" in length and 5 ounces in total weight. It is offered in two colors (Trout and Carp) and we've been told there will be a variety of tail options available in the future.

You'll need a dedicated rod designed for this style of fishing to throw the bait effectively but if you're into throwing big baits, this is a bait you need to check out!
