Fishing Small Creeks for Big Bass

I went out to one of my local Michigan creeks to catch some smallmouth bass. I struggled to keep the pike from biting and breaking my line, but also managed to catch a few nice creek smallies on day two.

Baits used: Rapala X-rap XR8, KVD Dreamshot, and Powerbait Pro Twichtail Minnow.

Table Rock Lake Bass Fishing 9/17/16

First time fishing a lake besides the family pond! I know my pond videos are terrible, and I finally I get to fish Table Rock Lake with Paul from Missouri State’s fishing team.

We caught all our bass on topwaters, such as Whopper Ploppers, Poppers and spooks.

The Suprise bluegill came on a War Eagle 3/8 oz spinnerbait
