Using Saltwater Techniques to Catch GIANT Bass

In this episode of BlacktipH, we return to Lake Weohyakapka with the FWC (Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission) to go fishing for giant largemouth bass using saltwater techniques. Our goal was to use saltwater kite fishing techniques with massive shiners as baits to try and catch the biggest bass we could find. To my knowledge, this is the first-ever fishing video targeting bass using saltwater kite fishing gear.

    I once caught a 7.5 pound bass out of a farm pond smaller than an acre. As the sun rose it illuminated this bass's "nest" in the deep water and you could see it rise up to bite that plastic bait. But to have this quality of fish in one location is pretty nuts and extremely unusual. When i was fishing tournaments with my dad and grandad, we would practice in the days before. Come game day, we would now where the fish are and how they're acting, what they're biting on, etc.. My uncle fished in FLW for a while.
