How to Bottom Bounce for Small Mouth Bass – Smallmouth Bass Fishing

Hello again!

Get your own gear here,
Walking Sinkers:
Viper Spoons:

This week we have a long video showing you exactly how we bottom bounce while drifting and trolling to catch a ton of smallmouth bass!

We bait up our silver and gold viper spoons with live and artificial minnows and troll them just above the bottom using bottom bouncers and 3-way T-Turn swivels.

We’re able to land a lot of small mouth bass, while keeping our lines tangle-free thanks to the T-Turn 3-way swivels!

As always,
Good fishin’!

Bedding Bass Behavior

Site fishing for bedding bass and looking at their behaviors through the spawn and different strategies for catching these fish.

You need a good pair of polarized lenses in order to site fish effeciently. For best visual acuity use a lense that lets in a little more light than a darker pair of lenses. I like 20-40% light transmission depending on the cloud cover. Check out my favorite lense for sight fishing here

smallmouth bass eating crayfish

crayfish are an important prey item for many fish, especially smallmouth bass, spotted bass and green sunfish.

It’s commonly thought that predatory fish strike the head of a bait first, but fish often grab their prey however they can and then spit it out and reposition before swallowing it. They will often swim off with their meal before repositioning it for fear that a competitor will take it away from them.

Crayfish are much less vulnerable if they can stay on the stream bottom and don’t always go down without a fight. The bass know this and will grab their pincers (aka pinchers) and try to flip them off bottom. Determined crayfish are sometimes successful in fending off these attacks.

The last few seconds are of a crayfish eating smallmouth bass eggs. My battery died just as the male returned and began attacking the crayfish.
