Catching BIG Winter Bass from PRESSURED Water! (Bank Fishing Tutorial)

I go fishing with one mission in mind: CATCH BIG BASS!!! This time of year, catching fish in respectable numbers can be difficult, especially from the bank. I go through all the hoops and explain what it takes to catch bass in a highly fished body of water. It wasn’t easy, but I managed to put together a pattern and pull out some feisty river largies!

  1. IM BACK 🎣😎 For real though, top comment in the last vid was HILARIOUS!!! Can anyone beat it 😂😂

  2. Me: did you read that last comment? So true! Hahaha
    Friend: true story… Wait
    Me: yeah?
    Friend: hey.. so.. you know 1rod1reel is not actually gone anymore. Right?
    Me: …..
    Friend: you knew that, right?
    Me: SMACK!!(hits friend) I TOLD YOU TO STOP LYING!!!(crying)
    Friend: (getting up) okay, man.. Sorry. I'm sorry.
    Me: Damn it!!!(throws something while crying)

  3. I haven't caught anything since I started. (March) I go fishing all the time and I'm about to give up. I dont know what I'm doing wrong but whatever it is I've wasted like 500 hours on it and here he is saying I hope this one is big. And I'm just like I hope I get a bite even if it's smaller than a gold fish.

  4. I got so excited after watching this.. New ideas to try for catching bass that are more lethargic due to cold water temps, and such!!! So I grabbed up my gear, headed over to the lake, took my first cast, and… Click, click, click, click.. My crank bait skipped across the surface of the lake. The lake’s frozen over w/a 1/2 inch layer of ice. :/
