Scott, hope you are well and healthy. I am from Canada and Montreal. We usually go with friends to this place called Sleepy Hollow near Lake Champlain for fishing. Amazingly staff, good people. Do you think it would be possible that one day you can come down to Canada and do a seminar and make a video for us ? There isn’t enough videos or seminars do get fishing growing more in Quebec and as you know we have amazing lakes ! Hope it’s a market you can think about.

shoulda stayed with flw/mlf and fished most of the summer instead of these busted ass bass opens. musta been afraid to compete with the big boys, i guess dudley was infact a better angler and had the balls to stay n fish with that loaded field and did damn well this year
ReelNCFishing919 2 muaj më parë
Awesome tips. Around my area in NC, when in doubt or the bite slows down at a pond, wacky rig or Texas rig weightless senko. Enjoying the series 👍

I know I’m a few days late, but my favorite bank lures are a bandito bug, a drag n drop on a drop shot, a whopper plopper, a reaction innovations flirt and a skinny dipper on a belly weighted hook. I’ve committed to learning the frog this year though

I was amazed that you didn’t put a fluke or senko in a bank fishing video. But I know most people don’t deal with it but I fish tidal water I would love some input on slack tide situations. Fished tourney today in the Pascagoula river and only .3 ft of moment couldn’t figure out what to really do

can that top water pay off if you are on a point that shoots out and has sloping sides on each side? then is it worth casting out on each side of it? ive never got a topwater.. ived tried it all really tight casting down banks.. and off main points but never any luck.. tried at all times of day.. and different times of year.. so i just mainly do drop shot and weightless texas rigged.. its the cheapest to lose from the banks.. and basically everything else is easy to lose.. except the top water but ya.. doesnt work so well for me. i got a tank here the other day on a roboworm dropshot style. i also fish a lot of off times.. non feeding times ect.. and a high pressured lake.. most of my fish come deeper then most would think.. around the 10-20 foot range. getting one shallow for me is just rare period. unless its like a super dink.but ya even a lot of my dinks are deeper. also i dont get many on the drag in or working the bait back in.. with drop shot and weightless i would say 90% of my catches are right as it hit the bottom or after the very first few movements if not on the drop itself. its weird here and tough. sometimes i feel if im not casting directly on one its impossible. good tip on learning the bottom.. using a weight helps also.. since you can feel the bottom a little more.. like rocks ect. also the tip on the weight is very good.. i would say do the lightest weight you can because it makes the plastics that much more real on the drops. sadly its windy a lot here and i like casting farther out since they tend to be deeper here. so i use a 1/2 ounce but if its perfectly calm and i go lighter weight i get more fish. nice vid and tips.

Great video, thank you. I live in Western Kentucky and with the Asian Carp in Kentucky Lake I have found pond fishing to be very rewarding. As always you mad me smile with the ants and just bought some Jackhammers yesterday so to see the damn gator get yours ......... damn gator. How about a video on the adjustments on bait-casters.
