  1. how about chocolate milk looking water, could a jig still be good to use and if so, what color and trailers? if not would would you recommend using?

  2. Okay, I have a goofy question. I live in Orlando, FL on a lake and I've never seen a crayfish on it. There are tons of shad, bluegill, crappie, spots and largemouth bass. Do you have a guess on whether there are crayfish on it or not? Thanks again for the great video.

  3. Your vids are incredible man, learned so much from your channel. Keep it up! I trust you for tops on gear and fishing more than anyone else.

  4. Another very informative video Matt. Keep the information coming. TacticalBassin is my favorite youtube channel by a landslide.

  6. I hope you continue to guide for a few years. I am definitely booking a trip with you. I think your rates are good. You know the lakes and these videos are proof you know how to fish different conditions.

  7. Man, I would give most anything to go on one of your guided trips, I checked out, but the price is just outta my range. Although I'm sure it's worth every cent…
    So now that's number one on my bucket list…….

  8. Hey Matt, I have lost several fish on the EWG hook football jig. Should I be using a sweep style hook set with these? What do you prefer?

  9. Hi Matt, I am new to jig fishing for Bass and this video helps me in deciding on type and color of jig to use. Thanks for the information.

  10. Thanks Matt for sharing very useful information thanks that can up anyone's catching rate. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
