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.

The Story of Matt's 17 Lber!

Ever wonder what it would be like to catch a 17 lb bass? You sure didn't dream it would go like this! Matt's 17 lber had every opportunity to escape but somehow, against all odds she found her way to the net!

Matt takes you back to 2005 on little Rancho Seco Lake in Northern California. He had spent years trying to learn how to catch bass on a swimbait unsuccessfully but this day would be different! Bolstered by twin 11 lbers the week before, Matt returned to the lake with a renewed confidence.

In the midst of everything going wrong, the fish of a lifetime finally bit! Everything that could go wrong went wrong, but somehow it worked out in the end. The fish weighed as heavy as 17.8 lbs but Matt was comfortable with the consistent weight of 17.2 lbs. 

What makes this fish so special (aside from the obvious) is that she became the impetus for Tacticalbassin. She permanently changed the course of Matt's life, ultimately bringing us here. If you'd like to read the article on Bassmaster click here
