Matt Catches an 11 lber! Full Catch Footage!

This GIANT SWIMBAIT was no match for this 11 pound Largemouth! She completely inhaled the big bait! Matt was fishing Clear lake, throwing a Huddleston swimbait on a deep rock ledge when the big bass hit. 

Swimbaits are still intimidating to a lot of bass fishermen. Something about throwing that giant bait just crushes their confidence and fills them with doubt but as you can see in this video, they really do work. Its not complicated, its not difficult, its about consistency. If you consistently throw the big bait, you will eventually encounter a monster bass while she is feeding. You can do it!

Ruined GoPro, Blood, And A Big Swimbait | What Would You Do For A Big Bass?

You don't want to miss this! Ever considered how far you'd go to land a big one? With a split second to decide, Tim found out exactly how far he's willing to go! Tim went "all in" to get a big bass that came off on the shoreline.

To some an 8 lber is a fish of a lifetime, for others its a nice catch. For Tim, she was a fish worth fighting for! Broken and bleeding he proudly holds his catch.

Crazy Underwater Footage! GIANT BASS Meets 10" Huddleston Swimbait!

Have you ever wondered if big swimbaits work? I mean, do they really work? Ever wanted to see a MONSTER BASS eat one? Now is your chance! Watch this trophy bass get fired up and eat monster 6 to 10 inch swimbaits over and over!

Its amazing to watch the defensive patterns change as the video progresses. In the beginning the smaller bass is totally focused on protecting the larger bass. By the end of the video the smaller fish has lost control and is just staying out of the way and the Monster bass attacks any swimbait that comes near its bed!

Anglers often over think their fishing but this is one time that I think we underestimate bass. There is a lot more going on during the spawn than we realize. From the surface of the water the concept seems simple but when we take an underwater look at the spawning process its amazing how many layers there really are to the bass' behavior.

Its clear that blanket answers like “just throw white” or “catching spawning bass kills their nest” or “fishing during the spawn is cheating” simply aren't accurate. Every bed and every bass is different. With a little patience and a lot of studying you can quickly analyze each fish and change your approach to become a much more effective and efficient bed fisherman.
