My Favorite Panfish Lures (Artificial Baits) Gulp Minnow vs Gulp Larva

My Favorite Panfish Lures Artificial Baits Gulp Minnow vs Gulp Larva - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week I’m testing out fishing with my favorite panfish lures, some artificial baits – Gulp Minnow vs Gulp Euro Larva and trying to see if I fish them with the same technique in the same locations, will I get different results? I’ve caught many fish on both the larva and on the minnow. So let’s see if these fish in the mood for minnows or worms. Turns out I was a little surprised by the results of this comparison. It seems that sometimes the fish are just in the mood for some minnows. I had a good time comparing my favorite panfish lures. and since I’ve had good luck with both at different times, I’ll continue to keep both on hand when its time for some panfish.

Easy Way to Catch Fish Without a Float? Fishing with a Realistic Rig!

Easy Way to Catch Fish Without a Float Fishing with a Realistic Rig - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week we see what to do if you’re looking for an easy way to catch fish without using a float. I suggest trying to fish with a Realistic Rig. This super simple rig consists of just a hook and pinch on sinkers and that’s all there is to it. I like to use gulp minnows for the lure but you can use small bait, grubs, worms or really any type of small lure. In this episode I get into a few bluegill and I even hook into a bass! Wouldn’t you know, he gets off the hook right as I get him up to the bank. So if you are struggling to get some bites while fishing with a float, try removing the float and give this easy rig a go. The price is definitely right and it really is simple enough for anyone to try.

How I catch a Big Buffalo Fish From The Bank This is Not a Carp - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week we find out how to  catch a big buffalo fish from the bank. This is how I end up catching one. And for those that don’t know, this is NOT a carp. A Buffalo fish is a native North American fish unlike carp. They do look rather similar, but after you catch a few, you can easily see the differences between the two.

The fishing was frustratingly slow this afternoon. The first catch of the day was a freakin plastic cup! I moved around quite a bit and I finally got a bite – and what a bite it was! I battled this big buffalo fish while it pulled a bunch of line from the spool. After I tired it out a bit I finally got him to the bank, removed the hook and released the big guy. Now go get out there and see if you can catch your own big buffalo fish from the bank!

Fall Bass Fishing with a Texas Rig Keitech Swimbait Skeletor Park - Realistic Fishing

In this week’s first episode I’m at Skeletor Park doing some fall bass fishing with a Texas rig Keitech Swimbait. Finally, the weather is starting to cool off and the shad are now migrating towards the creeks. Looks like now is a good time to try out a swimbait. I often prefer to use a Texas Rig for my swimbaits so I can work the bottom, slow roll them and even pull them through the weeds. The additional weight also tends to help with casting when distance is an issue. Once I finally catch a bass on the Keitech, I change up my lure to a Gulp Minnow to try to get another fish before I leave. I end up catching a bluegill which is enough for me.

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.

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.

Desperate Fishing for Summer Bass and Bluegill - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week we ask – are you feeling desperate to catch bass or bluegill during the summer? Realistic Fishing knows how you feel. Over the last few days I have been struggling to catch even one bass. Catching bluegill isn’t exactly a picnic right now either. After days of catching nothing I finally got lucky on a wacky rig Yum Dinger. With fog on the lens, I am able to get a 3/4 lb bass to end the dry spell. When the bass and bluegill fishing isn’t satisfying, all you can do is try again later. In this case one night made all of the difference. A one fish difference.
