Lake Okeechobee Bass Tournament – DAY 1 BIG BASS

Footage from our Fishers of Men District 1 Championship Tournament on Lake Okeechobee. The air temperatures went from 70 to 80 degrees in practice to 50 degrees tournament morning. Bass fishing during the cold front made the bass finicky and the bite tougher, but Will still caught us the Day 1 Big Bass. See the Big Bass plaque on my Instagram feed at ThomasHardenFishing.

Sight Fishing for Bass – Smallmouth Bass Bed Fishing in Wisconsin

In this video I am up in Wisconsin on an inland lake doing some fishing for Smallmouth Bass. I have fished this area for years and because it was somewhat of a windy day decided to head to a smaller lake to see what the fish are doing! The water temperature was around 58 degrees and the water was somewhat clear. There was a few males up on the beds so I decided to target them and just used the trolling motor looking for beds. I used a variety of baits from drop shoting a Gajo Spirit Shad to flipping a creature bait.

It was a good start to my trip back in Wisconsin and it is always fun hitting up these local lakes!
