The Sloppiest Largemouth Bass Attacked my Worm while Bank Fishing! #short

TMF Short #18 Sloppiest Big Largemouth Bass

Summer largemouth bass fishing comes with it’s fair share of challenges. Take sloppy, disgusting algae blooms for example. They’re gross. Now reduce the amount of water in a lake because of the heat, and that thick snot on top becomes a disgusting green blanket of dead bugs and line-discoloring stink.

The good news though, it it provides a lot of overhead cover for largemouth bass that are sitting up shallow… and it also hides YOU, as you approach them. This sloppy bass was caught on a simple jigworm 2 or 3 feet off the bank. I was using 8lb fluorocarbon but my entire spool was colored green after just a few casts, and this was on a spinning reel combo. Actually, it was the BBFF pole that we fixed in a previous video.

I can’t wait for summer.

“When will those bass come back shallow?!”
It’s an age old question for us bank fishermen. When did they move out… and when will they come back? Soon I hope…
