Matt stuck a 12 lb bass on a Pointer 100 Jerkbait!! Check out the footage of this MONSTER Bass! While telling the story of the catch, Matt gives insights into "triggering" bites and how it can change your big bass game forever.

Bass fishing is all about catching fish. We're taught that if you use the right bait the fish will be fooled into biting. But what if thats the wrong approach? What if "fooling" the bass is a mistake? There is a world of difference between "fooling" and "triggering" and you need to know the difference. 

The end of the video is packed full of knowledge about TRIGGERING bites. Listen closely and you might be holding a monster bass on your next fishing trip!

Jerkbait Review: Megabass Kanata and Jackall Dowzvido

Matt reviews two new jerkbaits that really stood out from the crowd this Winter. The Jackall Dowzvido and the Megabass Kanata are both great ripbaits to add to your arsenal for the Spring and Prespawn. 

The Jackall Dowzvido stook out because of the great color patterns, excellent side to side rolling action, and amazing castability. If you're looking for a compact jerkbait to dive deeper and fool those finicky fish, this is the one for you! 

The Megabass Kanata is an oversized jerkbait but it fishes much smaller than it really is. If you're looking to upsize your catch, this is an awesome option! With a ton of flash and roll to attract fish, this bait is sure to be a winner!

Jerkbaits are an awesome way to catch big fish during the cold water months. As bass move into the shallows in Spring the jerkbait becomes even more effective! These two baits will be a great addition to any bass fisherman's arsenal.

Insane Underwater Bass Fishing Video!

Ever wondered what it looks like when bass eat your lure? How about when a wolf pack begins fighting over your bait? Let's go underwater and find out! 

In this video we're using this jerkbait to trigger a huge wolfpack of schooling bass into a feeding frenzy! This is some of the most insane underwater bass footage ever captured with a GoPro! These fish get so aggressive that at times they bite over and over again. We had one bass that was nearly 7 pounds eat the jerkbait 4 different times before getting hooked! 

This isn't filmed in some private pond either, these are real bass filmed from a boat during the most insane bite ever! We were very lucky to have the equipment to go underwater and film these bass eating the jerkbait over and over. 

What were the bass eating? Here is the equipment used...

Lucky Craft Pointer 100 Jerkbait
Owner Hyperwire Split rings
Owner 3X Trebles
Abrazx 12 lb
-GoPro Hero4

Bass are very predatory and when they begin to school up the jerkbait is a great lure to catch them. The key is the combination of sound and sharp movement. This triggers the bass' predatory nature and they lash out violently, even when they aren't hungry. 

Be sure and try a jerkbait on your next fishing trip! They're great for largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass and work throughout the year.
