What's the Craziest Thing You've Ever Hooked While Fishing?? Here's Matt's Story!

Crazy things happen on the lake! We plan to catch fish but sometimes we hook birds, animals, and who knows what else! What's the craziest thing you've ever caught? Here's the story of  Matt's most bizarre experiences!

The Osprey is understandable. The bird is curious and if you've thrown a swimbait for any length of time you've probably had a close call. But what was the beaver thinking? That one is just crazy!

In case you find yourself in this kind of situation there are a few tools that will make it a little easier to free your accidental catch. A net, pliers, and wire cutters are essential to getting the job done cleanly. With smaller animals simply roll them in the net and work through the mesh to free the hooks. This eliminates the danger to humans of being pecked, clawed, etc... and it restricts the animal's movement so it doesn't hurt itself while panicking.

You Need to Fish GIANT Swimbaits, Here's Why

Forget catching swimbait fish and forget trying to get a monster bite, there is a trick to GIANT swimbaits that you NEED to add to your arsenal! It doesn't matter if your lake only has 2 pounders, this tip will still work for you!

The key to swimbait fishing for bass with giant swimbaits is understanding big bass behavior. We aren't trying to catch bass on swimbaits with this method, we're just trying to attract them, playing on their natural curiosity. Once you've drawn them out of the cover you can easily approach them with traditional baits later in the day. 

Put this method to work the next time you're on a new lake and you'll be amazed how many giant bass you see. You don't need every swimbait made for bass, just buy one 12" swimbait and you'll get the results you're looking for.
