Shopping for Deals at Academy During the Fishing Lure Shortage!!!

This week’s first episode we ask: Have you tried shopping for lures during the fishing lure shortage? This week I went shopping for deals at Academy and finally found some good gear on clearance! While many stores have been near empty and today some sections of the store were picked clean, other sections actually had a few clearance items! I got a good variety of  crankbaits, chatterbaits, spinnerbaits and more. I also found some large circle hooks! If you are experiencing a lure shortage this year like most of us, don’t give up on finding the deals. I found all of these fishing lures at Academy.

Buying Fishing Gear at Academy because I have a Coupon – Want Some?

For the week’s first episode I’ve gone out and bought some fishing gear at Academy Sports all because I have a coupon. Time to share it with my subscribers! We check out a few marine accessories and the different fishing lures I picked up since I could save a few bucks. I bought some terminal tackle like bobbers and hooks. I also bought some fishing gear like reels. I also grabbed a few odds and ends that I need for boat maintenance since I do hope to take it out more often when the weather cools off. When watching, keep in mind that all of these items are regular price because I couldn’t have used the coupon otherwise. Good luck to all who enter!

How to Find Fish at a New Lake Bluegill and Crappie Fishing - Realistic Fishing

For the week’s first episode we look at how to find fish at a new lake. Watch me do some crappie and bluegill fishing at a new spot. I look around and try a few diferent things to catch the first fish of the day. Once I’ve caught the first, I focus on what worked to catch a few more fish. I’m fishing with a float and a gulp minnow because it imitates natural forage pretty well. Since I noticed the downed tree was holding fish this time around, I will definitely try it again next time I am at this fishing spot. So far, the new lake is producing bluegill and crappie and I’m excited to see what else bites further in the future.

Original PowerBait Catches Bass When I Cant Get Fish to Bite - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week we have some success. Finally, the Original Powerbait catches a bass when I can’t get a bite! When the bass fishing is slow, I start to throw all sorts of stuff at em just to get a bite. The Powerbait Lugworm (original formula) finally came through and I caught a bass after trying for two days. Watch me strike out the first day only to go back for more. Persistence + PowerBait finally got it done on day two. If you can’t get a bite, throw everything you got at em. I got luck on a Lugworm wacky rig. Hopefully you can find a few bass too.
