In this video I will explain how the weather affects every aspect of bass fishing. We will go over wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, rain, snow, cloud cover, and moon phases. I will also give some tips on how to read a weather chart and which details to pay attention to throughout the Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

  12. Jamal Bey on January 8, 2020 at 8:28 am

    I’ve been searching for a video like this for 29 years and I’m only 30! Thanks man!

  13. fyescas777 on January 8, 2020 at 8:28 am

    I need clarification please, he says thay low pressure is good for fishing which explains why fishing is great during rain. But many other sites state the opposite; high pressure = high bite. Can anyone elaborate on this? I do understand thay during a decrease in pressure the bite is high. But I want to know the effects during steady pressure at both high and low pressure. Thanks!!

  14. Limper Lunk on January 8, 2020 at 8:29 am

    First time watching a video of yours, and subscribed within the 3 minutes.

    Thank you for a clear and concise instructional video on a key topic (weatherk that was well thought out, implemented and to the point.

  15. Brody Stiarwalt on January 8, 2020 at 8:33 am

    People get caught up in the newest lures and gear. THIS is the information people need to be listening too. Made the same mistake my first year. Got all the newest and greatest and still had trouble with bites. When I backed up to a few confidence lures and a use these tactics things started happening.

  16. Emaculate Darkroom on January 8, 2020 at 8:33 am

  22. Heart of fishing on January 8, 2020 at 8:38 am

    Thank you, this should be the quintessential video for beginners. You are helping new anglers with a year or two under their belt to have the understanding of someone with decades of experience.

  23. JNB XXX on January 8, 2020 at 8:39 am

    What weather app are you using for your charts?

  24. Larry Wycoff on January 8, 2020 at 8:39 am

    I sincerely appreciate you sharing this fishing tips. The more I learn the more I want to get out and cast for that "TUG". Guess I’ll adjust the budget for some rain gear and a new boat!. Thanks again, PS: Wife doesn’t need to know about the Boat part.

  25. Ant O on January 8, 2020 at 8:40 am

    I just fished in the rain first time yesterday. Best fishing I’ve ever had. It was a light Rainy day the whole day, but I fished from 3pm-5pm. It was windy, rainy, was a full moon a day or two ago and we had overcast conditions. Caught 20lbs of bass I’m about 10 minutes with a football jig. I was moving lithe jig pretty fast and they were slamming it. Was amazing!!

  26. PheelTheJoy on January 8, 2020 at 8:41 am

    Where are you located in South Alabama? I’m in Mobile, right on the coast. I’ve been really struggling recently to catch at all. Thanks for the tips.

  27. Mike Pevine on January 8, 2020 at 8:42 am

    Where did you get the weather graphs?

  28. Jorne Lindberg on January 8, 2020 at 8:42 am

    How many ppl on here use car scents in truck and carry gear inside cab?

  29. Carl G on January 8, 2020 at 8:42 am

    Stellar video on common sense, rock solid advice. Love it thanks!

  30. Peyton Graves on January 8, 2020 at 8:44 am

    Baits for different seasons

  31. nelson walters on January 8, 2020 at 8:47 am

    my great grandfather use to say if the wind was blowing from the south the fish wouldn’t be biting and we would never go fishing on days that the wind was blowing from the south

  32. S3snaek on January 8, 2020 at 8:49 am

    105392 viewers.. So long fish. Incredible thanks.

  33. Mariano Abundiz on January 8, 2020 at 8:50 am

    2 minutes into the video and I’ve already learned more than I’ve learned in the last 2 years.

  34. Aaron Just Aaron on January 8, 2020 at 8:51 am

  35. John Doe on January 8, 2020 at 8:51 am

  36. 360 no scope123 on January 8, 2020 at 8:52 am

    You were made to do this Bro. There’s no telling how many people you have blessed with the knowledge you’ve gathered. Please keep going.

  37. Jay Frost Official on January 8, 2020 at 8:54 am

  38. Rob Crosby on January 8, 2020 at 8:54 am

  40. Colby C. on January 8, 2020 at 8:59 am

    Hey bamabass I live in Alabama not looking to find any of your holes just wondering what lake you fish the most I’m down on the coosa around Jordan

  41. Richard Vaughan on January 8, 2020 at 8:59 am

    Brother I really appreciate you’re videos very much. I fish every single day for large mouth bass and the information you put out there has given me and my friend very many happy days

  42. Matt Sullivan on January 8, 2020 at 9:02 am

    I was going to ask if you would do something like this but decided I’d watch all the videos I haven’t yet. Thanks for all your insight over the years.

  43. Stoney Lonsome on January 8, 2020 at 9:03 am

    I hear two conflicting things about summer fishing- half the ppl you talk to say the bite is tough, the fish move to wherever the oxygen is so, they tend to be deeper and holding on structures you won’t know are even there unless you have electronics or have found out some other way- submerged rock piles, brush piles, ledges, long rocky points, etc. Stuff you have no way of knowing is there if you’re fishing from the bank or from a boat with no electronics. The other half say just the opposite, that this is their favorite time of year to fish when they do the best. I don;t know which is true but I know this- if you live somewhere where everyone bass fishes, and I mean like half of them own boats and have invested lots of time and money into it- yet the little local lakes and ponds you fish seem to be mostly empty of anglers- there’s a reason for that. Trust me, if it’s local to you the nit’s local to them and if there was good fishing there you wouldn’t be able to beat them off it with a stick. The reason I’m saying all this is because I just started bass fishing, and I just started bass fishing from a kayak- so I wanted to go to these small lakes and ponds first to avoid larger, more dangerous bodies of water where I would have to deal with lots of boat traffic and so forth. But- I didn’t think about the fact that there’s a reason these lakes are pretty much empty- they suck. Not so much for cat fishing or whatever but, for bass fishing- not the places you want to go. And because of this I have been doing really poorly- on a good day I might catch two… and thinking it was my fault. The truth is that it is my fault to some degree- I’m learning and I can’t expect to be Bill Dance right away but- a big part of it was just where I was fishing. You have to catch some fish- enough to keep you motivated- or you’ll burn out eventually- so if you’re like me and just getting started, make sure you fish where you have a decent chance of catching something when you do get it right.
