Realistic Fishing for Bass and Panfish in a Creek – Fall Creek Fishing

Realistic Fishing for Bass and Panfish in a Creek Fall Creek Fishing - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week, we’re doing some realistic fishing for bass & panfish in a creek. Fall creek fishing sure can be tough. Today was an average day catching four different fish. In the end I caught a largemouth bass on a small swimbait and I also caught three different panfish species on the Gulp minnow. If you try some fall creek fishing, don’t be surprised if it gets a little too realistic and the fishing is tough. You DO still have a chance to catch some bass & panfish, but the weather is now changing and so is the behavior of the fish out there. Good luck!

Realistic Bass Fishing Tips to Catch More Bass From the Bank - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week, we have are some realistic bass fishing tips to catch more bass from the bank. I typically like to use three specific lure types to catch bass on a slow day. First I start things off with a topwater fishing lure like a popper. If I don’t end up getting a bite within the first 20 minutes, I switch to something else. The second lure I like to try is a worm or something similar. If I can get a bite on that, then I like to downsize a bit with a minnow imitating lure. If the fish are not aggressive enough to go for a topwater or a larger worm, I feel more confident when I throw the small minnow lure. Today I ended up catching 4 largemouth bass but my camera was acting up so only three were caught on video. Hopefully these few bank fishing tips will help you catch more bass on a slow day.

Bass Fishing with a Rebel Crickhopper – Cricket Fishing Lure

First Time Fishing with a REBEL Crickhopper! Cricket Fishing Lure

First Time Fishing with a REBEL Crickhopper Cricket Fishing Lure - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week, we see this is my first time fishing with a Rebel Crickhopper! This is a cricket fishing lure that catches both panfish and bass. It is shaped like a grasshopper or a cricket, but it behaves like a crankbait. Although it was a little tricky getting started, I did eventually catch on and get it under control. The first fish I catch with the Crickhopper is a largemouth bass somewhere over 1/2 lb. After that I end up catching some very nice bluegill in the 8 to 9 inch range. I even catch a smaller fairly aggressive bluegill. One thing about this lure is that I find it hard to hook fish. This is probably because the hooks are so small. So if you haven’t fished with a Rebel Cricket Lure, you may also catch bluegill and bass your first time fishing with one.

Float Fishing and Bottom Fishing in a Small Creek Bass Catch and More - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week, I’m doing some bottom fishing and some float fishing in a small creek. I catch bass and more! I start things off with the float rig but I don’t catch any fish. After changing to the bottom rig I start catching some fish. I catch green sunfish, shiner, bluegill, and longear sunfish on the bottom rig. I switch back over to the float fishing rig for a deep pool and I catch more fish including a creek chub. Just before I head out, I try the bottom fishing rig one more time and catch a spotted bass! So if you have a chance to go fishing in a small creek, try a float rig and a bottom rig. You just might catch bass and more!

Realistic Fishing in a Creek – Summer Creek Fishing with Gulp! (Easy)

Realistic Fishing in a Creek Summer Creek Fishing with Gulp - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week, I’m doing some realistic fishing in a creek. Summer creek fishing using Gulp bait is easy enough for anyone to try. The bait can easily be stored in your car or your tackle box and is really is ready to fish at any time. I managed to catch fish on both the Gulp Minnow and also the Hellgrammite. However, the minnow did catch more fish when all was said & done. I was catching some sunfish, bluegill, shiners, and rock bass. On the Hellgrammite, I only ended up catching a few green sunfish. So if you have a chance to do some fishing in a creek this summer, consider trying some Gulp. I caught 5 different species in one trip.

Realistic Fishing Gone Wrong Surprise Catches When Fishing for Bass - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week, we see some realistic fishing gone wrong. Sometimes wrong is still a good time. Just check out these surprise catches when I was out fishing for bass. The first surprise catch happens as I’m out fishing with a Texas Rig creature bait, a Baby Brush Hog, and I hook into something that feels big. It doesn’t take long at all to realize its not a bass when the drag starts screaming. Nice catch but not the only surprise of the day, for the second surprise fish I’m out fishing a crankbait. Yet again the drag sings as a big fish pulls hard. For the third fish, while not as big, was quite surprising. I was surprised to find an eight inch sunfish went for a Pit Boss. Sometimes realistic fishing means that something has gone wrong but it’s not always bad. Even surprise catches when fishing for bass can be big fun.

Realistic Fishing with a Texas Rig! Summer Bass Fishing from the Bank

Realistic Fishing with a Texas Rig Summer Bass Fishing from the Bank - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week, I’m doing some realistic fishing with a Texas Rig! Summer bass fishing from the bank can be challenging at times, and a small Texas rig just might be what tempt those bass. I’m fishing a 1/16 oz Texas rig with a Z Man Ned Craw. Summer is a really good time to fish a small craw along the bank. Typically I like to cast near the edge of the weeds, near docks and around other structures in a creek. The small size of the Texas Rig takes a bit more finesse but  dragging it on the bottom is pretty easy. So next time you’re out there doing some summer bass fishing from the bank, consider trying a Texas rig craw.

In the first episode this week, we’re out at a nice creek doing some realistic creek fishing! Summer Creek fishing for bass and panfish is a fun thing to do and the cold water definitely makes it that much more enjoyable. Wading around in the creek is a good way to fish spots that are typically otherwise unfishable. Today I’m fishing with a small Texas Rig to target multiple species. I catch a couple largemouth bass, a smallmouth bass and even some sunfish. None of the fish caught today are huge, but for creek fish, they’re all great. Consider trying a little summer creek fishing for bass and other creek fish, you could end up having a realistic fishing trip like this.

Casting Small Weights With the Abu Garcia Black Max Baitcaster

In the first episode this week, I’m out in a parking lot demonstrating how to cast small weights with a Baitcaster, today I am using the Abu Garcia Black Max Baitcaster. The heaviest weight I’m casting today is 1/2 ounce and the lightest is a 1/32 ounce. These weights represent different sizes and weights of various fishing lures. Heavier lures like a lipless crankbait typically weight around 1/2 oz while lighter lures like a Ned rig comes in closer to 1/16 oz. Even super light lures in the 1/32 oz range can be cast around 30 feet if you are experienced with a baitcaster.  Just another helpful tip showing that you don’t need a $200 baitcaster to cast small weights and light lures. Practice is the best way to improve your casting.
