In this video I’m out bass fishing with some cheap Ozark Trail fishing lures from WalMart. Ozark Trail is a budget brand available at Walmart Stores. I got two of these lipless crankbaits for only $1.50! I have also seen Ozark Trail frogs, jerkbaits, crankbaits, as well as tackle boxes, sunglasses and other gear. All of the lures and other gear was priced affordably. What a shock, you don’t need expensive gear to go bass fishing. Evidently the bass really don’t care how much your lures cost.
In this episode I am fishing at the Fort Morgan Beach in Alabama and once again trying to see if YouTube can help me become a better fisherman. I am new to saltwater fishing, so I am trying the easiest method and am bottom fishing with dead shrimp. I manage to catch two fish despite the large waves and churning surf. First I catch a decent hard head catfish, then I catch a whiting aka gulf kingfish. On this trip I am using some older freshwater gear that I wouldn’t mind ruining due to sand and saltwater. A handy tip for avoiding frustration.

I can’t believe that in four short months my channel has grown to 500+ subscribers! I appreciate each and every subscriber that chooses to view my Youtube content. Realistic Fishing represents all of the fishermen out there who aren’t catching a 5 lb bass on every cast. Television fishing shows and other Youtube shows often make fishing look way too easy. There are hours and hours of preparation that go into fishing, especially if you try to keep up with the latest and greatest in fishing bait & tackle. Just the simple act of fishing from the shore, at a park, can be an exercise in frustration.
The Bait Box Challenge is a way for me to give back to my dedicated Youtube subscribers while also helping them become better fishermen. It is basically a box full of lures that I randomly send to outgoing Youtube fishermen. The Bait Box Challenge can contain a variety of items from soft plastics baits, to spinnerbaits, or even tackle for dropshots or Texas rigs. The box comes with a challenge that can hopefully get people to fish new lures as well as try new techniques. The challenges start out fairly easy with requirements like: Catch a fish on video with a lure from this box. As my Youtube experience grows, so will my audience and the challenges may become more difficult to complete. This is not another Barbie rod challenge, or catching a fish with lettuce challenge. This is a program that can actually help new fishermen get acquainted with new lures and tackle. It can also sharpen the skills of an experienced angler by challenging them to fish lures in new ways.
