Tim's Most Painful Big Bass FAIL | Brutal Story!

Tim was set to have the best day ever! He was getting giant bites, it was his 30th birthday, and all his friends had come to weigh-in to watch him win... that's when it all started going sideways. 

Only on Clearlake do you weigh in 3rd big fish of a tournament with a 7 lber and feel like a complete failure! Tim had a truly epic day but it could have been so much better! 

Losing a double digit hurts, it hurts BAD. Losing a 10 lber in a tournament is so much worse! We share these stories because you guys ask for them but it wouldn't hurt our feelings if you started asking for stories about fish that went right. Ha!

Tim's 2017 Rod and Reel Arsenal

In today's video Tim shows his 2017 rod and reel combos. From affordable to outrageous, he's got an assortment of gear that puts most tackle shops to shame! Our viewers asked for a tour of our gear so here it is...

We both LOVE high end bass fishing gear but we know that not everyone can afford to use the best gear on the market. We spent years and years using low end bass fishing rods and have slowly worked our way up. Don't feel pressured to spend outside of your budget but when the time is right, be sure to check out the equipment we use as a point of reference for your own fishing.

You do not need the top of the line rods and reels to catch more bass but it definitely makes the experience more fun! 

We hope you enjoyed this in depth look at our rod and reel arsenal for 2017!

Proving Which Baits are Best For the Fall Transition
