Shallow Water Trick Catches GIANT Bass! (2 Bass For 20 lbs!!!) 😎

We’re heading shallow! Come along as we search the shallows for bass that are making early moves toward the prespawn. SPOILER ALERT: IT WORKS!!! You’re about to witness a beat down as we catch bass after bass, up to 11 lbs!!! This time of year can produce giants if you’re willing to pursue them!

So many anglers forget to adapt with the seasons. We’re constantly pushing the envelope and searching for fish that are moving ahead of the norm. In this case, it involved moving shallow despite cool conditions. It payed off in a huge way! We started off catching big bass with squarebills and paddle tail swimbaits, then ended it with GIANT BASS on chatterbaits!

Below you’ll find links to the exact baits and gear we used throughout the video. We’ve included our exact colors, sizes, etc. All the links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item.

  1. Good Morning guys! I'm also from California (Visalia) transplanted to Sumner Co. Tennessee. I have not thrown many chatterbaits but you convinced me to try it again. Threw the exact color combo you showed on Old Hickory the other day and had 25+ fish in 3 hours. You continue to give me new tools for my toolbox! Thanks again!

  5. From across the room you could hear " yes! Yes! Yeess! " came running to see the big fish, then immediately doubling up with the 9! Some guys fish forever and never experience something so amazing! Thanks for sharing.

  6. You guys are so amazing. You are obviously great fishermen but most importantly, you guys represent our community so well. You set a great example to the huge audience that you have, and for that we all owe you guys a huge thanks!

  7. Oh my goodness I miss fishing. I cannot wait to get back at it. I live in upstate New York and I spend a month in Ontario Canada fishing the lakes up there. Incredible fishing skills you guys have. Appreciate all the info you have taught me. Hope all is well 👍

  8. I really wanna see this video uncut. Time in between catches and the conversations. You know the deal! You guys have basically been my guides and the reason why nrx fills my rod rack. So thanks and my wife blames you. 😂

  9. Spent last week in California on a trip to see the Redwoods and got garbage weather all week and had to spend an extra day because we were unable to get out of the mountains. I wish we would have went bass fishing instead!

  10. Awesome video guys!!Heading to Chattanooga for the first time for vacation from Ohio the 27th of this month, staying on the Tennessee river. Going to rent a boat and fish chickamauga.. super excited!! Any advise?

  11. Nothing better than The Tactical Bassin’ Ballet catching big bass and smack talking all the way! I loved how serious things got when you both hooked into giants. Laughed aloud when Tim bailed out on that underpin to pickup a squarebill. When it came to netting, I’d have to say Matt won. He was set up way in advance when Tim brought in that 9+, which I was REALLY hoping would be 10+. Thx, guys! Another winning video. Can’t wait to see you do a derby with the kids doing the fishing and you guys doing the driving and netting.
