In-Fisherman TV – Catching suspended bass on an umbrella rig

Jig Fishing with In-Fisherman TV on Lake Fork

Last January (2015), I had the opportunity to film three episodes of In-Fisherman TV with host Doug Stange.  The first episode that aired was the jig fishing episode.  We caught a couple of pigs on a black and blue Santone jig. 

Here is that episode:

Lake Fork Umbrella Rig – Catching Two at a Time!!!


This time of year can be a blast. When you find the fish bunched up and feeding on big balls of shad, there’s no better technique for catching bass than an umbrella rig.

Falcon Lake – 7 lber – August 2011

We had an incredible day of fishing on Falcon Lake that day. We weighed 19 fish over 7 pounds off of this one spot shown in the video, and there were several more that were close to 7 pounds that we didn’t even take the time to weigh. It was probably the most incredible two hours of bass fishing that I have ever experienced. We were literally calling our shots.

This was an 8+ pounder that we caught on the same day in the same spot that we caught the 7 pounder shown above. Again, we weighed 19 fish over 7 pounds on that point that day. At one point, we had a “triple” of a 7.88, 9.50, and another 7.88. We have had some bigger “doubles” in my career as a fishing guide, but we have never had a “triple” that big!!!
