CRAZIEST Fish Catch of 2017 !!!

Matt gambled everything for the chance to fish with a real piece of bass fishing history and it was amazing!!! Check this out! What an honor!!

Do you enjoy flipping, pitching, or fishing heavy cover for bass? Have you ever wondered why until recently all major tournaments had an 8 foot rod rule? Have you ever heard the name, Dee Thomas? If you haven’t, you’re missing a huge piece of bass fishing history!!

Dee Thomas is the godfather of Flipping. He developed a method called “Tullie Dipping” and later, the first flippin’ sticks. Its such an honor to catch a fish with a real piece of bass fishing history!
