MAKE BASS BITE : Secret Tips for How to Trigger Strikes

In bass fishing, we often get too focused on baits and locations and that type of stuff. We need to be more concerned with is “what makes bass bite a bait?”. Sometimes it’s easier to sharpen the blade than work harder at sharpening the tree, a secret tip from “7 habits of highly effective people”. Make sure that you’re not working hard without taking a step back and figuring out what’s really important to the fish. What is really important to bass? They’re either looking for something to eat, or they want to run off something that’s in their territory.

In this “how to trigger strikes from bass” seminar by John Crews, conducted in Tulsa, OK, he investigates bass senses, talking about that they can see colors, sense small movements and have eyesight that probably exceeds our own underwater vision significantly. He also talks about their lateral line and how they use it to detect lures with vibration.

When you put a bait in front of a fish, what’s going to make it bite? John Crews is adamant that action is the most important aspect of triggering strikes.

Florida B.A.S.S. Nation HS St. Johns River Practice

What is up ladies and gentlemen? So we March 10-12 Caleb and I were in Palatka, Florida for a Florida B.A.S.S. Nation HS Tournament. We had two days to practice in which we kind of just had a lot of fun exploring the bodies of water. The St. Johns River was a really cool place. In practice we didn’t find much, but we were able to come up with a plan for the tournament. The footage from the tournament will be up later this week. SUBSCRIBE and help me reach 100 subs! Hope you guys enjoyed this video. As always THANKS FOR WATCHING!

Overview – Had an awesome time fishing with a few of my subs! I was surprised to see such a quality bass bite for an extremely small pond this time of year. The extended warm spell has kept the water temperature ideal for the December and the bass were feeding in predictable patterns which made for a fun day on the water. I know some of you would like a chance to fish with me, and I hope to be able to fish with more of my subs in 2016! 😀
