We have a great video for ya’ll today!!
We are back on the legendary Lake Seminole to learn more about summertime grass patterns and some offshore ledge patterns. Our new friends the Whittaker brothers are taking me on the grand tour of summer time spots. We were able to find a school of big bass on a creek channel swing up in Spring Creek.
The fish were in grass holes on the channel edge in around 18ft and they wanted a Texas Rigged Candy Cane in Watermelon Magic with Garlic Scent. Another spot we caught big bass on was a grass hump on the main lake where it comes up to around 8ft with submerged hydrilla..the fish group up in the grass on these humps and chase bait.
THANKS FOR WATCHING

Getting into a nice fish from the kayak on the 19th of September, 2016, while bouncing a black colored with blue fleck 10 inch Powerbait Worm on a carolina rig setup, including a number size 2 KVD Mustad Offset SP Hook, polished bullet weight, and a red glass bead. Sufix 8 pound test clear Promix fishing line is currently on my trusty Abu Garcia Cardinal SX10 reel combo’d with a 6’6″ Medium Action Zebco Rhino Tough Rod.
A day on the water fishing Lake Monticello in East Texas for largemouth bass.
Monticello, or “Monti-sell-o” as it’s known to most Texas anglers, is one of many lakes that is used primarily as a method to cool a nearby power plant. The resulting discharge of hot water keeps overall water temperatures relatively warm throughout the year. This allows for fish to be caught in the winter using a variety of techniques that would normally be reserved for hot summer months.
This was filmed December 29, 2016 with Jake from Advanced Bassin’. Our initial strategy was to target deeper schools of bass holding to structure with Carolina rigs and jigs, but we eventually switched to shallow water techniques. Although fast-moving baits never produced, slower soft plastic techniques were what we ended up catching most of the fish on later in the day. Carolina-rigged fish were caught on LFT Ring Fries and Zoom Brush Hogs. Shallow water fish were caught on senkos and Berkley Power Worms.
