A kayak fisherman was reeling in a tuna when a shark jumped out of the water to attack the tuna and almost hit him. If the shark was any closer, it could of capsized his kayak and he would of been in the water, that would have not been a good outcome. I consider this kayak fisherman very lucky, this is one of the reasons why I stick with freshwater fishing. The fish in the ocean are just too dam big! It makes for one hell of a video on YouTube though!

largemouth bass percy priest lakeFishing has been up and down this past weekend at Percy Priest Lake. Some fishermen are coming back with no fish at all, while others are coming back with stringers loaded with bass. The trick is fishing the lower end of the lake with jerk baits. Right now the water is a little clearer at the lower on the lake which makes conditions a lot more fishable. Crappie fishermen on Percy Priest report that they’re catching quite a few in 5 to 10 feet of water. Crappie are being caught with Tuffy minnows, lead head and grubby combinations.

floating worm bass fishingOne type of rig that is overlooked for bass fishing is the floating worm. Even though it’s been proven to work really well in the spring, summer, and fall for bass fishing, it’s starting become a lost art. If you’re not familiar with this rig, you might be fooled by the title. The soft plastic worm does not float, it’s not a topwater lure. The rig gets it’s nickname by the way the worm falls slowly through the water. It truly is a unique action the worm gives off when you hook it through the middle and attach no weights to it. If you look at the photo with the caught bass, you’ll see how fishermen hook the soft plastic worm. One of the brands professional bass fisherman use are the Zoom Trick Worm. And to make the worm give off more of a wacky style action, some fishermen will use a Gamakatsu Wicked Wacky Hook.
