Pro Angler, Host of Facts of Fishing THE SHOW and Bassmaster Emcee Dave Mercer explains the One / Two Punch approach for catching big topwater smallmouth.
It started as a foggy overcast day on the water. Topwater was on but my mistake was to stay on top with a chugger when the bigger fish were below feeding on the carnage of a dozen boils above. Should have thrown a jerkbait or a lipless burned below the action! That’s what I love about fishing! Each hour is a new day of fishing as the fog burns off the fish go deeper. I ended up loosing a couple bigger fish and caught two decent keepers, 1 kentucky and a nice smallmouth! Those were both caught on a bottom bouncing lure, a watermelon tube lure. Even that presentation required an adjustment! I stained the watermelon gitzit with a dye pen, in orange and then I began to catch the bigger fish. This was our final tournament of the Table Rock north division of USA Bassin national fishing trail, for spring, and it took over 15.5 lbs to win it! Congratulations to Kevin and Bryan Jackson as they took the win And big bass with a nice 5.23 lb largemouth! Watch for our summer series beginning soon!
Cody Meyer’s Potential World Record Spotted Bass
Last week the industry was taken by storm by yet another double-digit spotted bass of World Record Proportions! Cody Meyer was out fishing with good friend, JR Wright when a truly massive spotted bass made a mistake and found herself swimming laps in Cody’s livewell.
Cody reported catching the trophy bass on…

Seaguar 6 lb Tatsu Fluorocarbon:
Daiwa Tatula Spinning Rod:

Cody is well known for his history of bass fishing tournament victories on spotted bass fisheries as well as his exploits into trophy spotted bass fishing but today he would break his own record, catching one of the world’s largest spotted bass at 10.80 pounds. Whether this bass becomes a world record or not, its truly a fish of a lifetime!
Tacticalbassin’s own Tim Little (current IGFA Spotted Bass World Record Holder) got the call from Cody that he had caught a monster spot, possibly even the new world record spotted bass, and needed help with the proper procedures.
Tim immediately grabbed the scales and hit the road, much like he had done for Wes Roberson nearly a year earlier when Wes landed his 11.00lb Spotted Bass that is still under review as the potential IGFA World Record Spotted Bass.
That is where the video begins… we hope you enjoy seeing one of the largest spotted bass ever caught!
