How To Catch BIG Bass On Ultralight Tackle! Senko And Dropshot!

July 8, 2020 72 No Comments


Battling big bass on ultralight tackle is amazing! Come along for a day on the water as Matt and CC battle big fish with light gear! The water is crystal clear (25+ feet of visibility!!!) and the fish are angry! Learn the tricks they use to build a pattern, get the right bites, and slow play those fish to the boat on tiny hooks and light line. 

These Great Lakes smallmouth love to fight! With the incredible water clarity on Lake Michigan, light line is a must. When you hook this big fish on light line, you know a battle is coming! In today’s video Matt and CC use a combination of dropshot, senko, and dark sleeper to build a pattern and catch a huge limit of smallmouth on a place they’ve never even seen before! 

Consistently catching fish isn’t about knowing secret spots. Its about understanding how fish position and when they move. After that its about making the best presentation possible and being willing to cover water as you build patterns. Below is a breakdown of the baits and equipment used in today’s video.
