What do you think this Shiner Fishing for Bass a.k.a. Desperate video?
Fishing for bass is a challenge, even aggressive peacock bass. We decided to bust out a traditional fishing technique I haven’t used in ages, using live bait. In this case we grabbed some shiners from a local tackle store and went out to sight fish for spawning bass on South Florida canal system that holds a range of species from snook and tarpon all the way to peacock and largemouth bass. It was sort of an adventure since neither me nor my best friend has ever tried live bait rigs for this kind of bass fishing – we were total novices but made it work to hook up with some nice fish and some ball busting in between.
Weather: partly to mostly cloudy, highs in the low 90’s becoming sunny and breezy later in the day (that’s when the bite seemed to improve too)
