Bass Fishing Tips and Tricks

This week on Americana Outdoors, we’re taking a tour across several states to bring you some of the latest tips and tricks in bass fishing!  To kick things off we’re meeting up with Clark Wendlandt and Amanda Masters in Florence, Alabama, as they tackle some Tailracing on Pickwick Lake! Tailrace fishing is angling below natural or man-made dams on rivers, canals, streams, or any other flowing current. Fishing in a tailrace demands a certain set of skills from an angler as fishing the tail race can present many different challenges and is often unpredictable. With a little patience and attention to how the fish are behaving throughout the day, it can yield some huge rewards for those anglers willing to take a shot at it. Clark and Amanda see the rewards of their hard work throughout the day, reeling in large small mouth, drum, and white bass!

Next up we’re hopping over to Texas where Mike McClelland is showing us his insider secrets when it comes to crankbait fishing on Fayette County Reservoir! Mike will be covering which crank baits to use depending on the depth you want to fish at, what time of year is best to use crank baits, how to set up your electronics, and what type of rod and line to use on the water. When you follow these tips and tricks that Mike McClelland has to share with us today, you’ll reel a ton of fish into your boat and quickly see why they are the personal favorite of many professional anglers!

Last up on this quest for the best tips and tricks in bass fishing, we’ll be hanging out in Kentucky on Lake Beshear with Terry McWilliams and Jeff Reynolds. Terry is best known as the pioneer of the Stupid Tube™ made by Secret Lures. This little tube has taken him from fishing several local state tournaments, all the way up to landing him a fourth place finish in the 2007 Bassmaster Classic. Join us as we get an in depth look at how this tube and jig head expertly work together as a rigging system that is guaranteed to reel in lots of fish into your boat!
