Big Striper on 6lb line? --You Bet!

I love it when you're out-gunned and win the battle. Check out this big striper we caught while fishing for spots.


Big Spot Caught on Float-n-FLy

Spot was about 4.5 lbs. If you've never done this type of fishing, you should book a trip in December or January and give it a try. It is a hoot!


Winter Fishing HUGE Spotted Bass

It seems every time we do one of these, it gets better. In this video, I talk about a killer technique that you can use in the winter when fish migrate into pockets and creek channels: finesse fishing in DEEP water. Check it out.


Hook n' Look Show Teaser

Here is the teaser video that Kim Stricker sent us on the footage we shot earlier this year. This show will be the debut show for the 2013 season, and is scheduled to air for the first time on January 5th on the Outdoor Channel.

We had 20+ blow ups caught on film, so we can't wait to see the show!!!


St.Croix RAGE rods for Fall Fishing

Here is a video I did to talk about fall fishing with the highly versatile St. Croix RAGE rods.


Summer Fun on the Dropshot

 

Late summer is a great time for dropshot. Here is a recent video of some of my clients having fun with our big Caters Lake fish.


Brent and His Son, Blake

Man, this was fun! My good bud, and long time client Brent, brought his son Blake out for a day on Carters. They were catching so many on their own, I pulled out the gadget and started filming. Check it out.


July 4th Dropshot Action Part I

My buddy Chris Hight and I took some time off on July 4th to experiment with some BigBite Shaking Squirrels on deep offshore brush. Check it out.

 


July 4th Dropshot Action Part II

Here are several clips of Chris getting on some big Carter's Lake spots. Enjoy.

 


Big January Flathead

This big flathead cat ate a down-lined trout in over 60 feet. You can see him blow a huge air bubble as he gets close to the boat.

 


Sonar Sight-Fishing with Drop Shot

This video was also shot 02/03/10. Matt w/ Pro Angler Radio and I were showing what the drop shot looks like on the sonar when this spot showed up under our bait just off the bottom in 35ft of water. Not a large fish but keeper size fish are at a premium in late winter when fishing is tough.

 

 


Pre-Spawn Fish-Head Spin

This video was shot 04/15/10. The fish was caught around 1:00PM, water temp was 70 and lake level +5ft over pool. My partner Bill Payne and I were doing a shoot w/ Matt Driver of Pro Angler Radio. We were in the back 1/4 of a major creek arm and as we were idling in we started marking tons of bait/fish suspended 10-15ft just up on the break-line of the 25ft deep creek channel. Even in the middle of spring on spotted bass lakes when you see this, get the fish head out! Normal springtime rules do not apply when spotted bass fishing, contrary to popular opinion spots are often very late spawners and as the water warms they have one thing on their mind..... Shad.

1/2 Fish Head Spin w/ Big Bite Jerk Shad, 12-15lb Fluro and I like to throw the Fish Head Spin on a glass or composite rod . Something like a 7ft Heavy Cranking Rod. Lots of "bumps" before hook-up so I like a rod with more give. It's improved my hook up ratio. Check out St Croix's heavy glass series cranking rod, it's a great fit for this technique.
