Catching My First Bass of 2022! – Bank Fishing with Minnows & Worms

Catching My First Bass of 2022 Bank Fishing with Minnows and Worms - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week I’m catching my first Bass of 2022! Today we’re going bank fishing with some minnows and worms. As the water slowly begins to warm up, I will start catching more bass. Today we see it’s mostly bluegill which I catch on some nightcrawlers. But it had to happen sometime… I was happy to catch the first bass of the year. Of course its a little quarter pounder with cheese, but this is a definitely good sign of things to come. I caught all of the bluegill on worms, and I caught the bass on a minnow. I am sure there are more bass in my future. As it warms up, they will only get better and better.

Stocked Rainbow Trout Fishing With Nightcrawlers – Beginner Friendly

Stocked Rainbow Trout Fishing With Nightcrawlers Beginner Friendly - Realistic Fishing

In the second video this week I’m doing some stocked rainbow trout fishing with nightcrawlers. This beginner friendly technique can be used when it’s tough to get a bite. I couldn’t get a bite on the egg today so I switched over to nightcrawlers and in the end, I catch all of today’s trout on worms. Walking back and forth to a couple of nice spots I’m able to catch 3 rainbow trout, almost 4. As the season wraps up and they stop stocking the trout, it will be time to transition away from trout fishing and move on to the bass. If you still have stocked rainbow trout to fish for, nightcrawlers might be able to help you catch these last few.
