  1. Keep grinding, the subs will come. 5 minute vids with underwater content is a great recipe. Carry on sir and we'll be watching.

  2. I learned a long time ago that another part of the β€œbig picture” is to determine the structural elements underneath the pads. Some pads sit right on top of prime structure or other cover, like stumps or lay downs, that make them better targets. Those things are harder to find because of the pads, but are worth looking for.

  3. Love the info here. Question, did you find the bass more up current of the pads? Or down current? Wasn’t sure if they were letting the current drive the stuff from under the pads out to them, or if they were just out from under with no direct correlation to the pads. Thanks!

  4. Your underwater footage makes your channel one my top favorites! I don't think there is a better way to learn more from our fisheries, bass & habitats.

  5. That's really interesting. I know a lot of anglers who'll throw a frog at pads until their arms fall off, even if they aren't getting bit. They usually beat themselves up over it as they change colors and frog types while wasting hours of time. But it turns out there were probably never really any fish under those pads. I bet those bass are probably right under their boat, lol!

  6. I’ve always known stagnant water is not great for bass but I’ll admit…I get sucked into the pads and what might be under them.

    Great job proving that moving out a bit May be better sometimes. Fantastic underwater drone footage.

  7. Great video Steve!!! That was awesome to see how the bass come out of the pads and hang around in the current. Thanks for sharing those tips!! Stay Safe & God Bless!!!

  8. Thanks Steve for clarifying oxygen trumps darkness. I only leaned the other day bass eat plants and algae, though I could not find any YouTube video of bass eating it ?
