Bass Fishing with a Soft Plastic Frog & Braided Line (Spinning Reel)
In this episode I’m bass fishing with a soft plastic frog using braided line on a spinning reel. A soft plastic frog type lure is fished on top by keeping the rod tip high and reeling it in. It can be fished from the bank or from a boat. I usually like to fish this type of frog near the weeds in shallow water. In this video I end up catching two nice largemouth bass. One of the bass was strong enough to actually bend my hook! Sometimes a smaller frog like this one is less intimidating to a bass than a large hollow body frog type lure, and it can defintely catch those small and mid-sized bass as well.

Quick Texas Rig Fishing Tutorial – How to Catch a Bass On a Texas Rig
This video is a quick Texas Rig Fishing Tutorial that will show you how to catch a bass on a Texas Rig as I talk my way through catching a bass quickly at the lake. This day found me fishing with a Rage Tail Structure Bug. I’m using 12lb test mono on a medium heavy baitcaster. I was able to quickly catch a bass near the boat ramp by focusing on fishing the structure and shadows. I also end up snagged and I do my best to get it back but in the end I lose a lure. This is a great rig, but its not 100% snag proof. If its hot outside and you just can’t get a bite, you could consider trying a Texas rig around cover and shadows.

In this episode we see if I can catch a Bass the Yum CrawBug because today’s video is a subscriber lure challenge!

So, here I am off to the lake to try and catch a bass on the Yum Craw. Will I find success and end walking away victorious with a bass in hand? I also try another fishing lure from the subscriber’s box. I always have fun fishing with lures sent in by Realistic Fishing subscribers! Thanks again to everyone who sends mail in to the show.
