How To Drive In Big Waves

Come on a boat ride with Matt as he explains the steps to safely running upwind, downwind, and cross swell in a bass boat. He explains how to position the boat and use different trim settings to your advantage so the next time you find yourself in rough conditions you can get home safely.  

This isn't the most glamorous topic but we all love the sport of bass fishing and its inevitable that you'll find yourself in bad weather from time to time. Prepare before you go out in heavy seas. Be sure that you're wearing a life jacket and always wear your kill switch while operating your outboard motor. Pay attention to your equipment and do preventative maintanence. The middle of the lake in large waves is not the time to have a minor breakdown leave you stranded!
