Would you think to bring a shotgun bass fishing? Well this guy sure did, and with good reason.
In this video you'll get to see some great blasting and casting when two guys bring a shotgun fishing.
They give some great tips about filling your bird tags and hooking lunkers for anywhere you call home.
As you just saw the reason this guy wanted to bring a shotgun bass fishing was because of the cormorant bird. These 'water turkeys' frequent lakes where you can also find hungry pre spawn bass.
Although the shotgun worked well for the birds, the angler was using a Zoom 4" Lizard to lure in the pre spawn bass. The fisherman used a dragging technique to find where the fish were biting. He put the Lizard lure on the line and with aide of the split-shot, it bounced along the ground as the boat slowly over along.
After searching around the lake, tho guy had the most luck with the lizard lure and the chatterbait. Keep in mined each area has a unique environment, so you'll have to find out which patterns will catch fish in your neck of the woods. However if you're after birds, shotguns work well no matter where you go.
