Hellgrammite Hammer Time On Some River Smallmouth

A fun day of kayak and wade fishing smallmouth bass on a small river using a Nikko Hellgrammite on a 1/8oz Keitech round head jig. After this trip I'm impressed with the hellgrammite, I caught some really nice fish on it and almost everything I put it in front of attacked it!

Here's where you can find the Nikko Hellgrammites:

Fishing Topwater Lures For...Carp?

I found this to be a very interesting trip! We intended to target smallmouth during a mayfly hatch but found they hadn't quite moved in on the easy meal yet. Instead the carp were in the buffet lines around mayfly swarmed trees gulping up those that fell in the water.

I used a Nikko hellgrammite as a finesse topwater lure to mimic a mayfly and trick several carp into biting using the same method I would for smallmouth, essentially topwater bass fishing for carp!

Here's where you can find the Nikko Hellgrammites I was using in this video:

I rigged the hellgrammite with a 1/0 Owner Mosquito light hook

Catching Bass on the First Cast - Bass Fishing Curse? + Lure Deals!

Is catching a bass on the first cast a fishing curse? That's what happened today! I was excited to catch a bass on the first cast until I remembered that means I won't catch any more. I know its superstition but when it works out that way, it makes one wonder. After fishing I go back to the studio to go over some good deals I found on fishing lures. I found a handful of Rapala lures at an antique store and a few other items at WalMart and Academy. I find deals all over, not just locally. Have you ever been a victim of the first cast bass fishing curse?

Fall Transition Smallmouth and Musky

As a cold front settles in, and brings about the fall transition we target smallmouth bass with small swimbaits & Musky with saltwater style Megabass stickbaits like the Flapper 220. Small Swimbait fishing in this case, called for a Megabass 3 inch spark shad swimbait on a Megabass Okashira Screw Head.

Slowing down and picking apart areas that both smallmouth and musky have been known to frequent was the focus on this afternoon.

Take an in depth look at real live footage as always shot on PUBLIC water.

River Smallmouth Bass Fishing - White Road Adventure Part 12 Minnesota

The White Road refers to the smaller, unmarked roads on a map. In contrast to the main highways often marked in RED, the white roads are often less traveled, seldom explored and offer a unique beauty and experience that the more traveled red roads do not offer. The White Road Adventure takes us on a journey across the country in search of Big Bass Dreams. Subscribe and join us on this incredible journey.

We end the afternoon on the river with some fun topwater fish and hit a new lake for more topwater action in Minnesota.

The Birth of #BigCrappieDreams w Vinnyman42

Today features a special guest, Cowboy the dog and his stray human that he adopted Mike Ammenworth. We head out to the lake in Northern California like we did back in Austin Texas with a solid game plan to attack the reaction bait bite since Mike has no experience fishing traditional hard baits for bass.

However, as always mother nature threw us a curve ball of conditions and we quickly ditched that plan to target the TRUE target species that will bring us glory. The Black Crappie! (sarcasm).
