Amazing Bass Video

Posted by MNAngler On April - 7 - 2010

April is a slow month for fishing in Minnesota because the only species in season are panfish and rough fish. Until I find the best place to go after these off-season species, I have to find something to ramble on about lest you get bored and wonder off.

Since I’m daydreaming/night dreaming/pretty much all-the-time dreaming about catching bass, I wanted to show you a cool video.

About two months ago, Tyler Brinks posted a very interesting video on his blog showing a fisherman catching a largemouth bass. I was flabbergasted by the footage because usually you see a strike from the fisherman’s point of view, or the fish’s point of view, but never both at the same time. I don’t know how they walled off the water. It’s almost like it was in an aquarium.

I was also amazed at how the video ended. The “family” of fish that swam through the frame at the end with the battle going on in the background was like something out of a Hollywood script.

Watch the video at YouTube if you don’t see the embedded video below.

The cool thing about this video is that it has a lot of lessons in a very short amount of time. I learned a number of things from watching just the last 30 seconds of the video:

  1. Just because a fish isn’t there one minute doesn’t mean it won’t be there the next.
  2. If one lure doesn’t work, switch it up and try another.
  3. A strike can happen at any time.
  4. A fish can strike and spit out a lure without you even knowing it.
  5. For every fish that strikes, there could be several that don’t.

The video is an excerpt from Glen Lau‘s Bigmouth Forever DVD. I’m so impressed with this little video that I may have to buy the
dvd and watch the whole thing. If I can learn that much from 30 seconds, just imagine how much I can learn from its full 45 minutes.

  1. That is crazy how fast the fish comes over and hits that bait. The fish never flinched on the first type of bait but no more than the second hits the water, it was all over the bait. I have watched that video like 5 times now in a row…lol… trying to figure it out. That is VERY informative. good find.

      I’m glad you found it informative. It’s just really cool how you can see both the fish and the angler at the same time. Thanx for stopping by and leaving a comment.
