This is it! Fishing for the chance to win $125,000 on Lake Lanier in the FLW Tour 3rd Stop of the 2018 season. I need to beat out 20 of the 30 fisherman left in the top 30 to move on.

BIG BASS! Deer Me! (Belly Boat)

Aug 2008. No crappie.
However, lots of bass participated in chasing spinner baits and jig/critter craw. Saw lots of deer on the drive out.

It was getting near dark when I left and quite a few of the large herd of deer in the conservation area/park were out and about. Many people go down there around 7 p.m. just to see all the deer; it is quite the sight.


The Equalizer Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass Fly (and Redfish? Fly).

The Equalizer fly pattern is meant for smallmouth and largemouth bass and is an impressionistic pattern that can imitate a dozen different prey items. I haven’t tried it on redfish yet but expect that it would do well on reds. The fly is meant to be retrieved with sharp jerks and pauses and will jump on the pull. Give it a try!


I Designed MY OWN Fishing Rod!! — Creek Fishing With NEW Rods.

Favorite Rods —


*Note* The Rigged Rods are ONLY available in the Cabelas Stores listed in the video. In the next few weeks Favorites will be working on getting some inventory online for some of you peeps who are interested in purchasing these rods on their website.

The 13 year old Jon B would lose his freakin mind if he knew one day he’d have his own line of rods. Like I said in the vid this has been a dream come true. For anyone who ends up snagging a Rigged Rod or two I GREATLY appreciate it and hope it lands you many fish. Thanks for the endless support, countless comments, and the major love. You guys are the real reason why this is all possible (no joke). Keep fishing…NEVER Stop!

Weird Topwater Lure??? Slaying Early Fall Bass at Little Seneca Lake

Fishing with the most absurd topwater lure I’ve ever seen… It rattles, has a back propeller, and had two giant blades in the front, truly a frankenstein style bait!

The morning held perfect conditions for the pompadour, cloudy + windy. But once the sun came out the bass shut down so Cornell and I switched to finesse with shaky heads and drop shots. Plenty of numbers, and by the end of the day, we got dialed in on the grass lines and pulled out some chunky late summer bass!

Alabama Rig 25 lbs of Bass in 2 Casts

Watch me catch 25 pounds of largemouth bass in two casts while bass fishing on lake fork. The fish that were caught included a 9lb 12oz beast using the ever popular Alabama Rig or Umbrella Rig. I attached some Lake Fork Trophy Lures swim baits with a Dobyns Rod and 20lb LFT Fluorohybrid Pro line. This was filmed on the famous Texas bass fishing lake, known for it’s big bass and the potential to catch a huge bass at any time.

DIY Plywood Coffee Table – Herringbone Pattern

I made this coffee table with a herringbone pattern and legs highlighting and featuring the plywood layers. I really wanted the endgrain to stand out, so every surface of this table shows off the ply layers.

This coffee table was built as part of the #rocklerplywoodchallenge put on by the guys over at the Modern Maker Podcast… Mike, Ben and Chris. The challenge was to build something out of 1 sheet of plywood. I used a 4’x8′ three quarter inch sheet of baltic birch plywood.

It was definitely fun to think outside the box a little and be a part of the DIY/maker community. This is my first YouTube video ever so I still have a lot of learning to do.

Stuff used for the build:

Rockler Doweling Jig –
Dewalt Router –
Milwaukee Circular saw –
