Steve Mortenson from Anglin Adventures TV

As bass fishing becomes more popular, we see more and more lakes getting more crowded with other fisherman. This can be a little frustrating, but it does not have to keep you from catching bass. I will explain in detail how to catch that trophy lake winnebago smallmouth of a life-time. I will give an in-depth look on how to fish for these amazing fighters and discuss the best lures, color selection, seasonal patterns, locations and structure. As well as proper equipment.
