Underwater Insights on Crank Bait Fishing for Bass

Bobberhead Bob spent some time on YouTube and found a wonderful video that teaches a fundamental lesson regarding fishing with crank baits.

Most of the video is filmed undewater to the sound track from one of the Hobbit movies I think.  At any rate, the first part of the video is pure magic, watching Bass after Bass grabbing one or another crank bait. It looks so easy, so natural.

The sheer number of Bass alone in the film is instructive.  But then things change. About the 3 1/2 minute mark of this 6+ minute video, the catch ratio drops off the proverbial cliff.

Crank baits are pulled out the the Bass’s mouth, or speed out of reach.

There is a lesson here.  Somewhere.  But I think you need to watch this to really appreciate it.

The video was uploaded by Zen Young of Zenmaster Fishing, although he says he did not own or film it, just first to upload it.  Kudos to who ever did film it, and to Ken for making it available.



Hey, if you would, do me a favor and let me know how we are doing.
