Underwater Bass Footage with CRAZY New Fluke Rigging Trick!

Don't keep fishing your flukes the same old way! Today we're showing you underwater footage of new and exciting ways to rig a fluke for bass fishing! Are your clear water fish line shy? Are they in deep water? Do you prefer a magnum fluke? We've got a method to rig a soft jerkbait that will help you catch more bass today! Matt is showing us rigging, different sink rates, hook styles and more, in today's in-depth look at Fall fluke fishing for bass.

Matt begins with basic texas-rigging of an unweighted Zoom Super Fluke. From there he explains sink rates between a Fluke, Shiver Glide, Bass Assassin, and Caffeine Shad. He re-introduces the nose rig method of finesse fishing a fluke then wraps it up with an all-new rigging that combines a swinging hook with a nose weight to fool deep water bass. If the explanations aren't enough we back it up with underwater bass fishing footage to show how the lures move underwater and how the bass react to them. No matter how you rig it or where you fish, there is information in this video that will help you catch more soft jerkbait fish.

Fluke fishing (soft jerkbait fishing) is one of the most exciting ways to catch Fall bass. As they move into the shallows you can effectively target bass that are blowing up on bait but also those that hang below and refuse to rise to the surface. With the addition of the weighted nose rig, you can now effectively reach deep water bass that are ambushing baitfish as well. The fluke is an incredibly versatile tool that should be in every bass angler's box. If you haven't been using it effectively, you're not alone. Many bass fisherman overlook the soft jerkbait for Fall bass, but now you have the tools you'll need to put it to work this Fall.

Below is a breakdown of the baits and equipment that were discussed in this video as well as rod and reel recommendations for soft jerkbaits.

Summer Topwater Fishing | Grass Fishing Tips

Bass are exploding inches from the rod tip! Its a feeding frenzy!! When Matt woke up he knew he had perfect topwater fishing conditions so he jumped in the kayak and headed out on Clearlake with 3 topwater rods in hand. His hunch was right as bass were exploding through the grass beds ambushing baitfish. Come along and see how Matt adjusts to catch as many bass as possible before the wind and waves get a chance to ruin it all.

Matt started the day with 3 baits tied on. He'd selected a Gavacho (popping frog), Teckel Honker (straight retrieve frog), and a Rage Shad (straight retrieve solid body) for their unique actions. Each bait would meet a different set of possible circumstances and at least one was going to produce. Before day's end Matt also added a Fluke to the arsenal to help convert leery bass.

Fishing weed beds can be overwhelming but it doesn't need to be. The bass treat this cover like any other. They focus on points, funnels, overhead cover, and small protected pockets. Once you learn to look through the expanse of weeds and see the subtle differences between one clump and the next, the bass become very predictable. Once Matt identified prime spots he was able to use the topwater and fluke combination to successfully lure out the bass.

Below is a breakdown of the gear and equipment Matt used today...
