This video would be a lot better if you showed the rigging of the different set ups. Maybe that could be a future video. I think most new fisherman probably have no idea about half the stuff you are talking about. If this video is just tips for people who already know how to fish then you good. But most new people are not going to know what you mean when you say "peg" or "bobber stopper", or even "water column" for that matter :)

Tips on all sorts of baits like this video and how to rig bait. What reel/rod combo cross the board. Would be and are the best videos IMO. Technique for all baits is what’s most important I think. Then learning how to judge weather, moon phase and all that can come next.

This is literally the most underrated video in Bass fishing right now. So many people sold on many different styles of baits, but if someone isn’t able to pull out the worm, and connect with the fish, then be ready to miss bites 😭

Hey Scott Just want to say that this is by far one of my favorite videos you have made.

Thanks again for making videos like this keep them coming.

These are great. I grew up watching Bill Dance, Jimmy Huston, and your dad fishing and I learned a lot. This new stuff is great but sometimes I just have to go back to some of the old techniques to give the fish a little different look at a bait. Or I have to throw some old stuff i know there not throwing...( banjo minnow, and the helicopter lure.)

Loved the show. This is what is really needed and has been missing on fishing shows for ever. On TV they show people catching fish and having lots of fun but never really get in depth on how it is done or rigged. They may said rig it with a Texas rig or Carolina rig or use this size weigh or that but never show you what they are talking about. You have to guess or go looking else where to see what that means. Then fishing it and explaining what you are doing and why is great. The other shows that are fun and entertaining are good too but when you want to learn something it needs to be broken down and shown. AS far as what I would like to seen is maybe how to keep from picking up weeds and grass when using this method. some time you can drag it along the bottom but sometimes there isa so much junk on the bottom that you are dragging half the lake bottom into to you. do you just not try this methon in those situations or is there a better way to rig it to not pick up so much junk.

AS3 SXP 2 muaj më parë
Maybe show the hook tying and rigging as well. I know a lot of people who could benefit from that. Including myself. I can Texas rig with the best, but I don't ever use flipping hooks. I never peg the weight...does that really make a difference? I guess with fall rate it would

Need to work out 💪 Brothe 😁🍺🍺👍🇺🇸🎣🎣. Your out of breath after 1 bass 😁🥳🤔 and your not overweight. I’m overweight and I walked 6 miles yesterday to catch 5 good bass lol 😂. That Mando Worm 🐛 is one of the best if not the best Bed 🛌 Fishing bait. I caught the same fish off the same bed 3 times lol 😂. 10 inch worm might be intimidating to trow especially for a finesse fisherman, but Texas Rig it like Scott in this video and I promise you it’s a fish catching machine 💪💪🎣🎣🎣🎣👌👌👍👍👍😎😁🥳

It all varies on the body of water buddy. You've got to learn to adjust on the fly and know what baits and color and action and location is hot for the day. Dont give up and fish on brother. Ive got frustrating days too. Just learn from everything and let it make you a better angler.

I have such a hard time throwing soft plastics and slowing down. I 😍 to pound crank baits, jerk baits, etc down their throats. I just want to fire casts feeling like im doing some work. However, on those days id crank and crank with the sun too high and hot, producing little to no results. My grandfather would slowly start putting it on me by fishing simple soft plastic setups. Specifically a 7” yellow ribbon tail worm. I know how good they can be. I still have a hard time with just wanting to use soft plastics and slowing down. This was and awesome video. Thanks for the motivation!!!!! Now i wanna jack one and hammer down on a big ole slunger with a worm!

How do you know when to reel down and set the hook? A lot of times I think I’m missing them because I set the hook too fast. I feel a few thumps and rip it.
J S 2 muaj më parë
@Saturday7x yeah I don't have much luck with frogs either, I know you gotta let them take it for like 2-3 seconds before you set. Good place to practice worm fishing is on the weed lines, keep at it you'll run into a good day sooner or later and that'll build your confidence.
Saturday7x 2 muaj më parë
J S thanks man this is great info. I fished a ton growing up in east Texas I just started back and can’t seem to hook anything. I’m using a dobyns champion extreme 704c for my Texas rig. Between my Texas rig and frogs my hookup ratio is next to nothing. Missed 4 blowups couple days ago on lake Nacogdoches then turned around and missed 5 blowups on frogs on Rayburn the next morning along with 2 worm bites 😂 it’s extremely frustrating. Thinking about going to a loaded stock pond just to get the feel.
J S 2 muaj më parë
If you feel a bunch of thumps it's most likely bluegill or whatever pecking at it. Bass will usually be much lighter 1 or 2 thumps because they just inhale it in one swoop. Keep the line tight because if a bass inhales you'll start to feel some resistance, this takes practice to know because when bass eats it alot of times they don't immediately swim away so a good sensitive fast or extra fast rod tip helps. Reel down slowly until you have a fair amount of resistance and it's most likely a bass, then Jack um.
