• Jigs and Jig Bass Fishing

    Jig Fishing

    As everyone knows that has fished with me, I love jigs!!!! Yes, I think that highly of them, and they have rewarded me with lots of bass over the last 10 years. As bass baits go the jig has replaced the plastic worm as my number one go to bait. Jigs are in a family of lures called jump baits, that is they are baits that are worked up and down in the water column.

  • Tips on Exploring New Waters [VIDEO]

    Exploring a new body of water and figuring out what the bass are keying in on forces you to become a more versatile angler. We all have our favorite fishing holes, but it's important to challenge yourself and step out of our comfort zone by getting out on unfamiliar waters.

    Here’s three tips on approaching new water:

    1) Do a little research and try to find out the conditions leading up to your arrival. Air temps, wind speed and directions, water temps, best tactics, etc. Having some local info before you head out is extremely useful.

    2) Pay attention to subtle details and changes in the weather and conditions. This will help you adapt when things change. Use the local info you gathered only as a starting point to work from.

    3) Fish your strengths first. If you can catch bass doing something you have confidence in, you’ll enjoy the day much more. Save the new techniques for trial on waters that you already know well.
