Many people turn to YouTube to watch bass fishing videos to learn how to fish for bass. The reason for this is pretty simple actually. While it is helpful to read internet articles on how to catch bass, it may not be the best medium to communicate how to fish effectively because you can't actually see what you have to do. You have to picture what you have to do while you are reading it. With that being said, I decided to search YouTube to find the best bass fishing videos and bring you my favorites! All these videos can be found on YouTube be searching for the exact name I refer to them by.
1) Bass Fishing Tips - Skeet Reese Drop Shot - This video is taught by professional sport fisherman, Skeet Reese. Reese is part of the Bass Anglers Sportsmans Society (B.A.S.S.) and has won the B.A.S.S. Toyota Tundra Angler of the Year award in 2007. He also won the 2009 Bassmaster Classic with a total weight of 54 pounds 13 ounces. In this video, he teaches you how to use the "drop shot" technique of catching bass during the warm weather at the floor of a lake when lake fishing on a fishing boat. Essentially what it is, is you set up a hook with a rubber worm on it and bounce it along the bottom of the lake floor. This technique is especially good in the summer when the bass are on the lake floor because it is cooler. In addition to the great advice he gives on the "drop shot" technique, you get to see him masterfully reel in many whoppers! This is one of the best bass fishing videos out there!
