In the context of bass fishing lures, there’s not much better at generating strikes than a wacky rig. Despite their unnatural appearance, the subtle shimmy a wacky rig has on the fall is straight catnip to the brains of bass everywhere. As good as they are at getting bites, there is definitely a learning curve associated with becoming a master of the wacky rig. In this video, Brian Latimer breaks down some of the keys to fishing a wacky rig.
Here is my video for Day 1 of the FLW Tour Event on Lake Champlain in Plattsburgh, New York and also bordered by Vermont and Canada. I was targeting offshore smallmouth that for the most part were post-spawn and feeding very aggressively.
You can watch as many peacock bass fishing shows on TV as you can find, and you can talk to anyone and everyone you know or have heard about who have been to the Amazon to catch these incredible fish, but until you experience the indescribable thrill and unbelievable excitement of that very first peacock bass annihilating the bait at the end of your line, you simply cannot comprehend….such was the case for us.
This video features a compilation of bass blowing up on hollow body frogs that I’ve filmed the past few months. These videos are filmed in local ponds but are not “trained” fish. I did lose a lot of fish because of most of the bass eating the frog were smaller. This video was filmed with a Sony Rx10 iii during the hot summer months in Texas. Comment if you wanna see more blowup videos like this.
