The Secret of Tournament Bass Fishing, Fish in Lots of Tournaments!

The Secret of Tournament Bass Fishing

Posted on Aug 30, 2010

By Matt Beckler

This may very well be the magic article that all tournament bass fisherman have been waiting for. The article that exposes the secrets of the upper echelon. So take a minute and lets delve into the world of the unknown. A world in which the likes of a VanDam, Evers, Reese, Brauer, and a Clunn could only know about. This mystery place is kind of like the Area 51 of bass fishing if you will.

There must be a secret to consistently weighing in limits of fish on foreign waters right? We watch the coverage on ESPN from our couches chapping our lips from licking them in excitement and awe at the simplicity of how these fisherman easily fill their boxes with four and five pound fish. We amuse ourselves like children watching a high wire act at the circus. “How do these guys do this” we ask ourselves every weekend. So, we pay close attention to what kind of gear that they are using, how big the engine is, what the brand of sunglasses are, and how many ball bearings their bait caster has in it’s thumb grips. “That must be it!” we say to ourselves and there goes some more of our hard earned money as we ape what we see on television and read in the magazines. We have come to the conclusion that stocking stuffers and retail end cap glittery packaging has to be the secret of catching winning fish! Lets not kid ourselves, it certainly does not hinder our efforts to be surrounded with the best equipment, tackle, boats, and gear on the market. Also, it keeps our outdoor economy with viable fresh air.

Now we have a full spread of the latest NASA approved fishing reels, rods, clothes, sunglasses, and an engine that has more horses and ponies packed into one cowling than John Force’s top fuel funny car. Armed with GPS, side scanners, Japanese lures, and weights made from materials that are questionable to be found on the periodic table of elements, we are finally ready to expose their secrets. Lets go fishing.

Day one results: not too good, must be the front that passed through last month. Day two results: even worse, must be the dam people pulling water off our fishes head. Day three results: the dam people quit pulling water and the bite went away. The greatest gear from the far east has not caught the under water Boone and Crocketts so it must be something else going on. It can’t be from decisions that we have made, no way. No one wants to walk up the hill with an empty bag and have to tell their comrades that they just can’t catch fish. So we blame it on the dam people and meteorologists. By the way, the dam people are some of the nicest folks I have ever met. They mention all the time that their ears start burning around 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays. I just tell them to wear more sun block.

The Pro-Bass Fishing Training Manual is the Insiders Guide To Bass Fishing Tips & Techniques Known to a Select Group of Highly Effective Bass Fisherman. Click Here!

So how does VanDam, Brauer, Reese, Evers, and Clunn do it on television and just what is their secret to unlimited catches of bug-eyed box fillers? I unfortunately do not have the resources to “Pull that rabbit out of the hat,” however, I can let you in on what I have observed. These guys are full time employees of the fishing industry and surround themselves with fishing and it’s nuances everyday of their lives. Information inundates their brains every minute from multiple sources in addition to the research that they pursue on their own. In short order, they are walking lineside computer processors, constantly storing and sending new information.

During a television show with Edwin Evers called “Lost Lake” he was fishing with deep crank baits on Grand Lake in Oklahoma. These baits have become so popularized by their success on Kentucky Lake and the Tennessee River Chain of Lakes by VanDam and Evers. We all have set out to enjoy this success with these lures but most of us have not been able to find the correct angle of retrieve, line size-sure match, speed of retrieve, and color that we read and watch on television. These factors don’t even take into consideration whether or not those are even bass that we see on our electronics. Wow, so many factors, just what is the secret? Readers, it is much simpler than this. Mr. Evers enlightened my approach to these baits and bass fishing as a whole with his “secret” that, surprisingly, he told on cable television. Edwin went on to say, “These baits work and they work well. Television editing will not allow you to see the amount of time that we have to put in a day to catch the fish for a thirty minute show. Stick with the bait all day and learn how to use it.” Well, this may not be exactly what he said but it is dam close. I just can’t let the dam people off the hook yet.

The secret was let out of the clutches of the Fort Knox fishing with-holdings with that one statement by Mr. Evers. This is my synopsis on his comments: Work hard at what you do and believe in what you are doing and you will succeed. There is no secret other than spending as much time as you can on the water and doing your own research, not just relying on that of others, to better your efforts. We need to learn our tools and how they are best utilized. We must understand how all of our gear functions by itself and in relation to other gear. There is no one aspect of fishing that can better your results more than proper effort and experience. Learn from your days on the water and observe everything. Each day of fishing that we spend sets the foundation for the next day. Think of your career as a “ladder.” Every day we fish we can add a rung to it. But we better make sure that the rungs are secure and will hold us while we work on the one above it. Otherwise we will fall down and utter momma’s no-no’s at the dam people around 3:30 while walking up the hill.

Fishing Tips For All 3 Phases Of The Bass Spawn With LFG!

The bass spawn is one of the pillars of bass fishing and it comes in 3 phases. Prespawn, spawn, and postspawn. Understanding when bass will spawn in your area can help you key in on their patterns for months. Prespawn bass fishing is electric, one of the most fun times to be on the water all year long. Fishing during the spawn can be incredibly exciting as you sight fish for territorial bass on beds. Post spawn bass fishing can be a tougher task than the previous two phases of the bass spawn but can still reap major rewards.

How To Download Free Wii Games

Nowadays, there are all sorts of free download available over the internet. Entertainment media like games, movies, music and TV shows are the most popular. Done properly, they benefit both the providers and consumers in the long run. In the case of Nintendo, it saves the Wii gamers heaps if they know How to Download Free Wii Games online.

Strictly speaking, straight FOC (free-of-charge) Nintendo Wii game download is not a norm. Why should Nintendo let them be? Given its immense popularity, the games are the core money-spinners of the moment for them. As a matter of fact, they apply full intellectual property protection on their Wii games. So is there now still a way on How to Download Free Wii Games online? You bet!

Yes, there are still Nintendo Wii games that are absolutely free to be found on the net. Then again, it’s better to steer clear of them as they are likely to be illegal, of sub-standard quality and laden with virus and malware. Others would require soft installation and even hard modification to the extent that unless you’re into technology rather than video gaming, you’ll burn out in the pursuit.

Without re-inventing the wheel, the ready-made solution to How to Download Free Wii Games is membership sites which give a lifetime of unlimited free access of all kinds of media including video games. Although the download of Wii games is free at such sites, a one-time joining fee is required. However, competition is keen so the amount is usually very reasonable.

Even for those who are only occasional gamers or where only a few games in particular are sought, downloading Wii games is still viable. There is a per-download online option at only a fraction of the cost of the discs from the game stores. But by and large, Wii fanciers go on for more after a while even if they started out lukewarm and quite typically upgrade to unlimited access membership in due course.

It is easy to find Wii Download Services on the internet but this is where one needs to tread with caution. In the haste onto the bandwagon of this hugely popular service, many contenders have run ahead of themselves, thus falling short on commitments to their subscribed members. Worse still, some are just out to pull a fast one on those who are not wise to such tactics. In truth, there are but only a precious few of them who are worth their salt.

No need to despair, a few simple tips will set you safely on How to Download Free Wii Games. Find a provider which offers full money-back guarantee with no questions asked, software, tools and accessories with no extra charge, all media including games, movies, music and TV shows and 24/7 support and service, and you are then on the right track. If it’s also powered by secure retailers such as Clickbank, you are in safe hands.

Freshwater Fish Finders

Not all fish finders work well in all types of fishing. If you like to fish in freshwater then you should look for a fishfinder that will work best for freshwater fishing.

In general single frequency fish finders are adequate for freshwater fishing. Single frequency models work well in most lakes, rivers and in shallow coastal fishing and they are generally less expensive. Single frequency fish finders have less depth penetration than dual frequency models, but for freshwater that is generally acceptable. Most freshwater fishing is not in deep water so being able to see to depths of 1000 feet or more is not needed. The single frequency fish finders will often have a larger cone angle which will let you see a broader area at a more shallow depth.

If you happen to fish in the Great Lakes or other very deep lakes or rivers then a dual frequency fishfinder will serve you better. The dual frequency settings will allow you greater visibility at deeper depth and overall deeper depth penetration.

Another aspect of freshwater fishing to consider when choosing a fishfinder is what type of craft you use for fishing. Many people use kayaks, float tubes, canoes or small boats when fishing in freshwater. If you use one of these smaller crafts you should consider a portable fishfinder. Both Eagle and Humminbird make portable models that are both affordable and an excellent choice for shallow freshwater.

For very shallow water, two to ten feet, one of the best choices is the Humminbird Fishin Buddy line. These fishfinders are portable and also have side viewing capability which allows you to see fish off to the side of your boat. Plus you can adjust the shaft on these models to see at different depths. There are several different models in this line and they are all inexpensive. If you prefer fixed mounted models, the Fishin Buddy line can also be mounted to your craft using the included bracket.

The Eagle portable fish finders are also a good option for people who fish from small crafts or from multiple boats. These portable units generally have suction cup mounting systems and are quite versatile. In general the Eagle portable fish finders are also extremely affordable and definitely offer a good value for your dollar.

If you are selecting a fishfinder for freshwater fishing, consider the water depth and type of craft you usually use. Unless you are fishing in truly deep water, like the Great Lakes, you can often get great results from some of the more inexpensive models. If you are in the market for your first fishfinder then you may want to start with a simpler model and trade up to the more advanced models as you gain experience with finding fish easily.

The Best Fishing Places In The World!

If you enjoy a spot of fishing but are bored with your current spots, why not think about going somewhere really special? You may as well treat yourself to the best that the world has to offer, because you work so hard all year round! Let’s have a look at some of the places you should be dreaming about. Who knows, you may even get to see a few of them very soon!

Newfoundland – Canada

Apparently you can catch the most delicious fish on the planet in Newfoundland. I’m not sure if it is something in the water, but they just seem so much tastier here. Flowers river is the best spot if you are after some special mackerel and yellowtail. Over twenty varieties of fish can be caught within one square mile. Newfoundland is rightfully the best fishing spot on the planet – right now!

Victoria – Australia

It may seem like a long way to come, but ‘down under’ is where it is at for fishing. If you enjoy a bit of sport fishing off the boat, you should really pack your backs for Victoria. There are over 7 species of sharks available all from the same area. It has something to do with the plentiful bait fish and the really deep water combining to attract these denizens of the deep.

Puget Sound, DC, United States

Come to the heart of the Olympic mountains if you want to see how fishing was supposed to be enjoyed. As well as the breathtaking scenery you can catch some brilliant bass and excellent eels in the spectacular lake waters.

Cape Town – South Africa

One of the most exiting fishing destinations you could ever wish to visit. You will be fishing for massive tuna whilst gasping in awe at the sight of killer whales and beautiful dolphins. You can even go cage diving with the majestic great white sharks. The beaches provide a welcome backdrop for the days you just want to kick back and relax.

Montauk Point, NY, United States

North America features heavily in this fishy festival of far off places. That is because the variety of waters is second to none. In Montauk point you can test your silky skills whilst fishing off a mesmerizing glacial cliff. The mighty striped bass will be more than happy to keep you company on your NY visit.

Cabo San Lucas – Mexico

One of the most famous and beautiful sea fishing spots in the western hemisphere. The sport fishing here is so good that they hold world record competitions almost every week. If sailfish and marlin float your boat, you should head down this way- pronto amigo!

Florida Keys – United States

Although it can be fairly expensive, you should give this picturesque setting at least on trip before you die. The shark and barracuda sport fishing will stay in your memory long after the suntan has faded. Just remember to take loads of photographs because the doubters will never believe the one that got away!

Lake Erie Walleye Fishing

Lake Erie is known as a Walleye fishing paradise, and thousands of anglers visit this area every year looking for trophy fish and enjoying the sport.

Walleye in Lake Erie give the best fishing during the early spring and then again in the fall months, but these fish are available year round if you are willing to look. In the early spring months, the reefs are a great place to locate Walleye, especially the females getting ready for the spawn, because of the deep water.

During early spring and the fall months it is recommended to slowly troll around the reefs. This will allow you to cover more area, and increases the odds of catching a Walleye. These reefs offer great Walleye fishing opportunities even through the spring into early summer, and then again in the fall. During the fall months the Walleye are coming into Lake Erie from the Central Basin, and this offers a great chance to catch trophy Walleye.

Spring Walleye fishing on Lake Erie can also be very productive in the Western Basin of the lake. During the spring more than eighty percent of the population of Walleye in the lake are usually hanging out in this area because of spawning activity. Catching trophy Walleye during this time in this area is common, with many being over ten pounds. Use minnows with jigs or cast some blade baits and you can catch a large number of males on the reefs, where they are waiting for the females to spawn. If you are looking for large female Walleye in this area, you should troll in the deer water around the reefs.

The lake also offers great summer time Walleye fishing. Larger Walleye, including many of the larger females, will move off into the Central Basin. The Walleye that stay in the Western Basin will usually form large schools, and these can be a mile or longer long and wide. This is considered the best time of year to fish just for the sport and the flesh of the fish.

It is common to limit out daily during the summertime on this lake.

Fishing for Walleye on this great lake during the late summer and fall months means changing your strategy if you're looking for trophy fish. The Western Basin of the lake once again has very large female Walleye, some over two and a half feet long and weighing ten pounds or more. Bait fish and jigging, as well as bottom bouncers, can work wonders in getting the Walleye interested if they are slow to respond.

How to Play the Bass Guitar Starting Today

Many of us have dreams of standing on stage, looking out into a crowd of adoring faces as we play our bass guitar. That is great. This is one of the many reasons that many people pick up the bass to begin with. The truth of the matter is that you do not have to wait years to become a master of the 4 string to enjoy your new found talent.

If you want to learn to play bass, it can be done in as little as a few minutes every day (though many would prefer to play for hours). The bass guitar is perfect for anything from keeping a simple rhythm to creating spectacular and haunting solos. While the complexity of the musical feats that can be performed is simply amazing, you do not have to be Cliff Burton, Paul McCartney, or John Paul Jones to begin playing the bass guitar at performance level. It is in fact, one of the simplest instruments to begin playing. Not only that, there are varied musical styles to choose from as an entry point. Rock and roll, funk, country, classical, and jazz are just some of the many musical categories that incorporated the bass guitar into their sound. So no matter what your musical taste (or the favorite of those you play for), your favorite genre is sure to use the 4 string.

Millions of people every year decide that they are going to learn to play a new musical instrument. Be one of the thousands that follow through on their dream and set away a few minutes (of or a few hours) of the day and begin enjoying one of the most rewarding past-times ever invented by man, learn how to play the bass guitar today and you will not look back.

Lipless Rattle Baits For Early Spring Bass – Another Bass Fishing Trick!

If you are looking for another bass fishing trick for early spring bass fishing try using a lipless rattle bait. Yep, that's right. Lipless rattle baits in early spring can be very productive and can often times out produce most other lures under certain conditions.

As warmer spring weather approaches and the water temperature begin to rise, largemouth bass will begin their crusade towards the waterfall flats, coves, and channels in search of food and spawning grounds. This is the perfect time of year to intercept these crushing bass with a lipless rattle bait.

There are many liberal rattle baits available on the market today. I would recommend going to your favorite tackle store and picking out a few different sizes and colors to add to your tackle box, and experiment with them to see which one works best. These types of lures are designed to sink until you begin your retreat. Once you begin your recovery these lures will run at a constant depth unless you stop your retirement to let the bait flutter down into holes in weeds or down the sides of wood cover. The rattle in these lures is more than just a gimmick designed to catch more fisherman than fish. The rattle allergs fish more than silent crank baits do, so the fish may begin zeroing in on the noise of an approaching lure even before it is visible to the fish.

Also, the lipless rattle bait has no diving bill, however, the slanted nose on the lure will deflect it over snags. These hits make these types of lures very versatile for covering both shallow and deep water. Try casting a lipless rattle bait into a shallow weed bed during early spring and let the lure sink down into the weeds. Then rip the lure out of the weeds, pause, and repeat. This tactic can produce some violent reaction strikes and can be deadly on early spring bass. If you have not tested lipless rattle baits on early spring bass than you are missing out on another bass fishing trick that you can use to put more bass in the boat or on the stringer.

Crawfish and Their Behavior

The imitation soft plastic crawfish or hard plastic crawfish crankbait can be one of the most powerful baits you can throw, depending on the time of the year and how it’s presented. Many anglers today use these imitations and do not really understand why they are using them and quite possibly how to use them properly. Imitations come in all shapes, sizes, materials and colors. We will take a look at the selection process and determine when the best time to throw imitations would be as well as explain why and how you should use them. Once you understand the mating and molting rituals of crawfish, you will definitely have the upper hand when using these imitation baits.

There are plastic imitations starting in the ½” range all the way up to 6″. Some have multiple legs and pinchers, while many are very authentic and they can differ greatly between models and brands. As a matter of fact, there are companies that have taken actual crawfish and made molds of the creature and reproduced an exact replica in soft plastic. Some of the most popular brands of plastic crawfish are: Gambler Worms, Magic Worms, Zoom, Nichols, Mad Man, Strike King, Tiki Sticks, Storm, Culprit, Lake Fork, Berkley and Gary Yamamoto just to name a few. My personal choice is the Gambler Crawdaddy in the 4″ model. I have tried many different types and brands and the Crawdaddy consistently produces the most strikes for me, When it comes to hard crankbaits (molded hard plastic or wood) there are many companies out there making crawfish patterns as well. A few that come to mind would be Rapala, Storm, Bomber, Yo-Zuri, Mann’s, Rebel, Smithwick, Rat-L-Trap, Cotton Cordell, Berkley and Daiwa.

I think to truly understand when the best time to use a crawfish type bait, you must first understand why bass eat them and when they find this type of forage the most appetizing. Crawfish are located just about everywhere: from flooded areas to agricultural fields to muddy ditches and of course ponds, lakes and reservoirs. There is not a state in the contiguous 48 that doesn’t have millions of crawfish swimming around and providing a nice feast for the local bass populations. The more knowledge you possess about crawfish, the higher catch rate you’ll enjoy after practice and proper usage. I think it’s time we go back to science class and educate everyone about this awesome little beasty. Like any creature on our planet, crawfish are bound and determined to eat, mate and protect themselves from predators. You must understand how this process works to maximize your catch, while using imitation lures.

Late March through May is the first major period of crawfish activity. Now, this may change one month forward or reverse depending on what State you live in and other details such as water temperature and conditions. Crawfish usually start to come out when the water reaches 50 degrees. This is the time in which they are in the wide-open areas looking for receptive females for mating purposes. Most importantly, this is the first time that the males are out walking around on the rocks, exposing themselves to feeding bass. When the crawfish walk on the rocks, they make a clicking noise, which is intended to attract females, but it will also attract bass. Keep in mind rocks are the #1 place that crawfish get picked off by bass. Look for rocks that are fairly clean and free of foreign debris, as crawfish do not have the ability to clean off the rock like a bass can using its tail to sweep a spawning bed nice and clean. Crawfish rely of currents and wave action to sweep the rocks clean for them. Crawfish are also very light sensitive. If the water is shallow, your chances of catching bass are much better in low-light conditions such as early morning or late evening. If the crawfish are walking around on rocks in 30 feet of water, you can fish for them about any time of the day.

After the mating process takes place, the females will disappear back into their little holes and caves to fertilize their eggs with the sperm that has been deposited on them by the males. The male crawfish will then molt and their calcified sexual organs will fall off. (Ouch!) When this happens, the males will try and hide. This is the time that many anglers think that bass will gorge themselves with crawfish. This is true to an extent, but not for the reasons you might assume! After the molt, the males start to retreat and are less accessible to the predator bass. The crawfish will spend most of their time in their caves and holes trying to find enough to eat without coming out into open water. They will however come out of hiding during low light conditions and when this happens, the chance of getting picked off by fish is much greater. During the molt process, the color of the crawfish will change dramatically. They will usually go from a camouflage brown/olive color to a bright red or orange color. This color change will make them much more visible to hungry fish cruising along and this explains why the bass tend to feast on crawfish during this stage.

Depending on the water temperatures, the females will begin to hatch their eggs, usually in about 30 days. The hatchlings will stay attached to the female and depending on the crawfish species, the hatchlings will molt every 2 to 7 days. They will then fall off their mother after the third molt and will be approximately ½” long. The females will then molt and go into a low light feeding process and stay in their caves and crevices as much as possible. The little crawfish will molt several times and crawl around in the cracks and crevices and feed as much as possible until fall. During this period, the small crawfish are more susceptible to bottom feeders rather than bass. When fall arrives and you are throwing craw pattern crankbaits, be sure to revisit the same rocks you fished earlier during the year. Often ignored by most anglers, the fall mating season or cycle is the most intense. Fish your fall craw imitations the same way you fish your spring craws and you will produce dramatic results.


I think the best way to fish either hard plastic or soft plastic imitations is to work them parallel to rocky banks. Try different depths and always remember to bounce, hop, jig, bump and run your bait over rocks as this is the area the bass will be keying in on looking for crawfish. In other words, always keep contact with the rock structures! If you are using a soft plastic craw with a bullet type weight, be sure to tap and clack that weight against the rocks, as this will definitely imitate the clicking sounds that the crawfish makes. When using plastic or wood crankbaits, use models that contain a rattle device, as this is an excellent imitation as well. If you are very serious about “matching the hatch”, try my method. I will go down to the shoreline the day before I am going to fish a body of water and dip a crawfish trap in the water. Wait a while until you catch several crawfish. You can then study these creatures and when you get home, you are able to take your soft plastics and match the colors of the present live crawfish. This might require that you purchase a few jars of soft plastic paint or several colors or fingernail polish, and touch up the claw tips and various parts to get an exact match.

Largemouth Bass 6 and 9lbers on Topwater at Lake Fork

for more fishing stuff
follow my tweets

Fishing the low light hours for three days, there was too many topwater bites to film. These are some of the strikes that were caught on camera, including a 9lber being caught.

Walking baits rigged on 15lb LFT Powersilk mono line and my favorite topwater rod, a Dobyns Champion 704CB were used to land all these bass. Walking the bait at a medium to slow retrieve was the best for triggering the big strikes.

Best Bass Lures And Fishing Techniques: Why And Where?

First off, Bass fishing is officially listed as a sport. But is it a sport? What is it to you? Obviously you are reading this because bass fishing means something to you and you are looking to improve your game. Well, bass-fishing is something you'll either love or hate, sitting for hours on the banks of a river, pond or lake catching nothing or raking them in one after another

For those of us who are enjoy the sport and want to excel in it, do the best we can and get the fish into the bag … or throw them back in for next season … there is always another limit to be reached and overcome, another lure to make or buy, another rod or reel that may or may not give us that little extra edge over those elusive bass we can not see until they are landed. Bass Lures are the defining point in something that you can make yourself, unlike a hook or line, reel or spinner, or live bait (one of my favorites!). Can fish (Bass) see color? What color do they go for if they can?

Well, a lure represents an insect or water-creature of some sort and is invited to get the attention of the bass and stimulate his eating response, and this tells us what the fish can or can not see and with a little more information we can design and construct lure that really do work … or buy them More than this, the lure on own own will not catch the fish for you. You need to know where to go and when. What time of day, what weather conditions, should the sun be in front or behind you? How far should you cast or exactly where will the fish be hiding?

These are questions we need answers to and believe it or not, this is a science and there are answers. Fish are not creative, so they can not plan and scheme ways to elude you, this means that their behavior is knowable and predictable. Therefore you can work out with a good degree of accuracy where, when, how, what etc. And the answers are readily available

For years I have been going bass fishing in a mountain river in a part of the country we call the Karoo, it is a vast semi-desert area where you would least expect to find any water at-all let alone a river. The camp area is situated inn a large hollow in the terrain and is invisible until you are right there, beautiful and peaceful, full of birdsong … and wild. At the camp the river slows down and dams up a bit, and being in a mountainous area the river-bed is mostly rock and this is where the problem comes in

Use live bait, fine, but the live bait swimsuits in between the rocks and snags your line, bait, hook, sinker the lot, gone There are also places where you can fish from the bank among the scrub-type bushes and trees away from the rocks and this is where the question comes in … where are the bass? Do they school? Do they move around? Do they have their favorite places? It took quite some time to work this out. But these answers are easier to come by with the right input …
