Bass Fishing With Cheap Fishing Lures From WalMart – Ozark Trail

Today I’m out bass fishing with cheap Ozark Trail fishing lures from WalMart. Ozark Trail is a budget brand available at Walmart Stores. I got two of these lipless crankbaits for $1.50! I have also seen Ozark Trail frogs, jerkbaits, crankbaits, as well as tackle boxes sunglasses and other gear. All of it was priced affordably. You don’t need expensive gear to go bass fishing. The bass really don’t care how much your lures cost. Give the Ozark Trail fishing lures a try if you are into cheap bass fishing. You can find them at WalMart.

Micro-Spinnerbait Crappie Fishing in a Hazardous Creek

Initially, I wanted to make a carp fishing video. Then, when I approached the spot, I started seeing largemouth bass lingering in the shallows. After fishing for both species with no luck at all, I decided to try to catch some crappie with a miniature spinnerbait that I purchased awhile back. Unsure of the brand, but it did prove to be effective at bringing these creek crappie out of dense cover.

Fishing Jigs on Stumps for Pre Spawn Bass

Fishing the jig is my favorite technique for bass fishing. In this vlog, I am going kayak fishing on a lake where the bass are in all stages of spawning. These largemouth bass are located on stumps that are on spawning flats and points leading into spawning flats. The base of the stamps are full of big roots that the laremouth bass like to spawn in and also hunt for crawfish and bluegill. I’m trying to target the biggest stumps pr the biggeest clusters of stumps to go for big bass. Big bass find a jig very appealing because of the big profile it puts out when the skirt is relaxed. The water temperatures on this lake today were in the mid sixities and it was filmed during a near full moon. I hope these tips and techniques help you catch some big bass in the cold weather, see you on the next fishing adventure!

Big Bass Fishing with the Boss

A quick afternoon trip with the boss turned into a big bass fest as we encountered much bigger bass than were thinking about on the way to the lake. I few fish came on spinnerbaits, but the really big ones came from flipping craw baits into heavy shoreline cover around secondary points. The bait had to be paused for several seconds before getting bit. I think the heavy winds and low pressure got these big bass into feeding mode before moving up to spawn in the warm and dirty shallow water in the backs or coves and creeks.
