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. nice catches….good advice….I am fixin to load up the jeep and go catch me some smallies….rigged my bait casters with square bill…shaky head and a thin fin…..heading to some riff raft………….I copied your colors too….poor fish, I am gonna slay em! thanks.

  2. Thank you, Mike! You read my mind, I was just thinking to find videos about winter bass fishing, and I am a bank fisherman ^_^
    Can I ask a quick questions, what is your top 5 choices of bait/lure for the cold winter months?

  3. Nice fishing! I love the idea of fishing in a free fishing zone, good content! Good day in my book, I've never seen free fishing zones I should do more research and see where the rules and what areas around me have them

  4. Awesome video buddy.. Glad to see you back on the water… I don't worry about too many people but I was worried there for a bit. This year I have seen many things happen to a lot of good anglers and I WAS PRAYING that you were not one of those.. Tight Lines!

  5. Yeah!!! That what I call "The Asian Brain of Fishing" lmao. Because they like to be cheap, save money, use their brainpower when comes to bank fishing… 😄😃

  6. I gotta admit 1rod, I kinda gave up on your channel. But, since I have watched your last two vids I remembered why I liked your channel in the first place. No BS, just fishing. When I first started watching YT fishing videos your channel was one of the first I watched. Keep up the work and you will hit 1m subs in no time.

  7. Dang December the best time to fish lol First weekend in September we caught about 34-35 fish and the 2 biggest were 7lbs. And then the biggest.was 7lbs. 8oz.!!
