Kentucky Lake Bass Fishing Day 1


I hit Kentucky Lake with my friend Drew for a few days for some offshore structure fishing and shallow bush flipping. This lake is full of good largemouth bass! But, it also spotted and smallmouth bass species and on this day we caught all three. I really wanted to figure out the ledge fishing bite and got a great experience with what it takes to get these Kentucky lake largemouth ledge bass to bite. I’ve never seen a lake where the bass with feed so heavily in an instant, and then just as quickly shut down. We ended up catching a few good bass off of each ledge spot and moving around to a few others. In all we probably graphed over 20 spots to finally find a few that actually held bass. Make sure to watch the following day to see the other shallow bite as well. There were not as many big bass up shallow, but there were plenty of good ones.

Awesome Punching ~ 2nd Place Roland Martin Marine Bass Tournament

Donny Bass and I finished 2nd in the Roland Marin Marine Series Tournament on Lake Okeechobee doing what we love to do – punching heavy cover for big fish! Full day video and weigh in, all the deets and all the fish using big tungsten weights to target big bass on the bass capitol of the world Lake Okeechobee.

One of the best tournaments in Florida paying over $5k for the win. We managed 2nd place thanks to some awesome punching and flipping fish staked up in the mats. Go to baits was a Gambler Crawdaddy and Why Not (links below), heavy braided line, and heavy action fishing rods.

Conditions: sunny with partial clouds, highs in the 80’s and fish staging up to spawn.

Caught it all on video with the GoPros, another epic tournament finish with my friend Donny Bass make sure to check him out

How to Catch Bass in Deep Water

Hey fellow fishing freaks! This video is the extra long educational version of the deep water structure fishing montage. Click the link to check it out!

I’m hoping that this will answer some of the questions you guys have had about finding and catching bass on offshore structure. There are lots of ways to catch them, but here I show a few of my favorite techniques that I have caught fish on at a variety of lakes. If you have a big high dollar graph or a small cheapo, learning what fish look like on your electronics is critical for knowing if you are in the right place to catch fish.

If you are having trouble understanding what you are staring at on your graph, I recommend taking a day and studying your graph, and stopping to fish when you think you see some good cover, structure, of fish. That is the best way to learn how to translate what is on the graph to what you feel underwater.
