  1. Great tip plus another way to extend the use of the bait cause usually the head or the spot where you put the hook through gets worn out after a couple of fish

  2. I’ve seen bass behave like this and the way I thought about it is that they use the dirty water the way they use shade. I think it’s partly to be where they’re harder to see and feel safer. Where there’s a confluence of a cloudy creek and a clear creek I’ve see smallmouth hold in the cloudy water and ambush prey at the edge of the water that’s more clear. Just a thought, love your channel.

  3. Have never commented on a fishing video ever, but I am compelled to do so !!! Best presentation I've seen. Great video and even better information. You have a new fan !!! 👍🎶😎

  4. After a storm or rain, the barometric pressure either, rises; or stablizes. As a result the fish will move to areas to “equalize” that pressure. Hence, the move to a deeper area or deeper and cloudier water. I have fished after a storm, and it seems like all fish dissappear.

  5. This is similar to a “mud line”. Often a brisk wind/ breeze and the accompanying wave action will flow across red clay points and create a muddy condition down wind of the point. Often bass set up in this muddy water that is not far from clear water.

  6. it's possible because of the ph levels. the rain water probably through it off. the cloudier water most likely had something in it or was the result of the ph levels being more balanced.

  7. That is just so wild. The only thing I can think of is that the cloudy water affords some cover for all those fish. Maybe they see it as some sort of protective blanket that offers safety. Who know? But it is certainly fascinating!

  8. Wow Steve!! Your channel is becoming my go to for under water footage. I have been bass fishing for a long time and I always learn something from your channel. You have me hooked!

  9. Study suggests that the oxygen content spikes in the first 5 ft of a eutrophic type lake after 1 invh of fresh rain. Less rain equals less depth to the spike in oxygen levels. Also it generally heats up a cooler lake and cools an overheated body of water as well. Fish are attracted to temp changes in the water column

  10. There nocturnal that's for sure, thanks for the bank fishing tip too and your big fish tank is the best. 🐟🐟🐟 Try giving the new Mega Bass Sleeper Crawl some Under Water Proof ?

  11. My philosophy has always been the bait fish and smaller fish live to hide and the muddy cloud line is a good example. Murkey water near clear has been a favorite of mine to fish.

  12. Steve, great work, as always. I really enjoy you under water videos. It gives a different perspective. Thanks for all the work to put these together.

  13. Lower visibility bass fishing – great! You may know, from living in Illinois, this is the typical water I fish on the Fox River here in Northern Illinois.. If it’s not rain, it’s boats.
