10 Bass Weighed 81 lbs?!?! The REAL Story Behind This EPIC Photo!

You've seen this photo but you've never heard the story! Heart wrenching, painful, and epic, all at the same time! If you want to hear the heart and soul behind TacticalBassin, you've got to check this out!

Tim was as low as you could be. After more than a week in NICU with his youngest son struggling for life, Tim hit rock bottom. There was no where left to go but to the lake. He just wanted to clear his head... he had no idea he was about to begin the most epic week of fishing he'd ever experienced! When have you ever heard someone say they were hooking 6-10 lbers on every cast? Its almost unimaginable but that is exactly how it happened!

Here are all of the baits the fish were eating that week...

Lipless Crankbaits: Year Round Tips To Catch Bigger Bass!

Lipless crankbaits are awesome fish catchers! Most bass fishing anglers use them as a seasonal bait but the lipless crankbait can be fished all year long. This video is going to explain more about lipless cranks than you even knew existed! 

In this video we break down two very different approaches to fishing lipless cranks. The slow, methodical approach can produce GIANT bites while the fast-burning approach covers water and locates aggressive fish. Both methods have a time and place so its important to master both.
