Underwater Footage! Dropshot Worm Comparison - Which Would You Choose?

Which plastic worms look the Best? Let's head underwater and find out! We've rigged some of the most popular dropshot worms on a nose hook and put them to the test. How does your favorite worm stack up? Does it move the way you think it does and are you working it the way you should?

Underwater footage gives us a unique look at lure action. Every time we do this style video we discover baits work differently than expected. In this case we discovered that not all plastic worms are created equal. Some of these worms sink quickly while others drift to the bottom. Some works looked best with a subtle shake, others looked best with an aggressive hop.

Learning these nuances will make a huge difference in your daily fishing! As it turns out, we weren't using one of our favorite worms to its fullest potential. We need to begin working it with a more aggressive hop to get the best action. Also, we identified two more worms that are going to get fished a lot more often! What did you learn? Let us know in the comments.

Below is a breakdown of the worms used (In order of appearance) as well as some of our favorite dropshot gear recommendations. The worm colors shown in the video were selected for their high visibility. We will include actual color recommendations for each worm as well.

How To Catch Bass In The Heat! (Its Easy)

Let's go catch Giant Summer bass together! Its not hard once you know where to look! Today we're going to show you exactly how the bass position on hot days and what you need to know to catch them. We're going to show you 6 different techniques you can use to run the hot weather pattern and catch bass anywhere in the country this Summer.

Many anglers are afraid to go out in the middle of the day in Summer. The heat gets so intense it can be really uncomfortable but the same scenario that keeps you away makes the bass bite like clockwork. Once you understand how to use shadows to your advantage, you can catch bass everywhere you go.

Matt shows us how you can take the shadow pattern and apply it to shallow bass with a frog, punch rig, and senko. Then he turns around the same day and shows how you it can be done with a jig, a worm, and a deep crankbait. It really is that easy! You have to get out and do some bass fishing before the dog days of Summer come to an end.

Below is a breakdown of the baits, including colors, that Matt used in the video. We've also linked all 6 rods he had rigged on deck.

Summer Night Fishing Tricks For Bass

Its time to go night fishing! Many big bass turn nocturnal in the Summer, feeding heavily while anglers sleep. They're able to move shallow and ambush prey while the lake is quiet. Today Tim gives some key tips and tricks to take your Summer night fishing for bass to the next level! This isn't another video about throwing a black and blue jig, get ready!

Night fishing is all about stealth. The lake goes quiet as the sun sets and the fish become very aware of unnatural sound. If you're out on the water with lights on, you're slamming locker lids, or you've got your motor turned up high, the fish will know you're there. If you take the time to slow down, quiet down, and select natural baits, it can be the best fishing of your life!

Tim goes in depth about color selection, moon phase, and so much more. Listen closely to the quick tips because they will make all the difference! Listen especially close to the information about how the moon impacts color selection. Knowing when to throw a bright color, versus a natural color, versus a dark color can be the difference between catching huge fish and catching no fish at all.

Below is a breakdown of the baits discussed in the video to help you fish with confidence this Summer.

GIANT Bass In A Lake Full Of Predators!

We're on a SMALL Lake full of BIG predators! The plan is to target bass but we've got to avoid the musky and pike to make it happen. How do you find bass in a lake like this? We're about to find out! The plan is to target bass that are moving into the shallows as the water warms up. Come along for a fun day full of GIANT Smallmouth!

We began the day by looking shallow. In clear water fisheries your best bet is often to simply look, don't even make a cast. If the water is murky, use a fast moving search bait as your eyes to determine if the fish have moved in. Once we established the fish had moved up, the hunt for the big ones began! The first bite of the day came from a musky, the second from a 5 lb smallmouth!

We spent the day targeting bass in and around cover. Even the big bass are wary to mix with the big pike and musky for fear of becoming a snack. Despite the presence of heavy cover, we focused on 5-6 lb fluorocarbon line to fool the clear water bass into biting. We used a variety of baits to target these fish, catching them on nearly everything we threw. Below is a breakdown of the baits and gear we used to make this day a success!
