Got on Conroe and managed to catch some good ones last week. Would love to hear feedback on the video and hear what you like/dislike to be able to make better videos in the future. Thanks for your time and tight lines!

Very good video. Sorry, something is wrong with my sound on videos; so I was looking for visuals to get all the information that I needed. I miss a lot of stuff without sound.
- I saw the worm and hook.
- Needed to see the whole rig from weight, leader and if the weight was pegged or not.
- Needed to see the brush pile on the depth finder screen and how the fish were setting up on it.
- Noticed you kept driving back up to the area. Or; was that different brush piles you were moving to? Just was wondering why you weren't using spot lock?
- I do a lot of drifting across areas with all electronics and TM turned off once the boat is in position. Was this a factor?

Thanks for the comment, that's something I'll try to incorporate into future videos. I did not have the weight pegged, I think the separation between the weight and worm gets more bites and better hookups. No leader, straight 20# flourocarbon. I definitely will try to get some clips of how the bass and bait are setting up on the brush pile, nice tip! I was driving from spot to spot, was trying to show how it was just one-fish piles. I was using spot lock and trying to position downwind of the brush pile to be able to cast at it effectively. I'm not sure I understand your last point but I usually do turn off the console electronics once I get up to the trolling motor.

You seemed to drift off of your spot each time you caught a fish. Then you would be idling back up to it. At the same time I never saw you concentrating on the depth finder to do that. Just couldn't figure it out.

I would pull up to the waypoint after graphing it or just pulling up and hit spot lock once I got to 75ft. Once I hit a pile I don't get off spotlock until I leave to go to a different spot. I usually only focus on my depth finder for this type of fishing when I am looking at my GPS to be able to line up and get the right distance away.

This is a good video...looks like you're having fun out there for sure. The comments in this thread will make your videos more "sell-able" meaning you will get more views if you focus on teaching as well as catching.

Good luck out there my friend.

Thanks for the clarification. Now I understand. Looking forward to the next one.

When are you going to post all of this info with fish you’re catching?
