In this bass fishing instructional video seminar, Major League Fishing professional bass tournament angler Mark Daniels Jr. joins The Bass University in Tulsa, OK to talk about fine-tuned finesse bass fishing. MDJ got introduced to finesse fishing when he started getting his butt kicked only using power fishing techniques his first year on tour. Mark knew that he needed to be a more versatile angler and committed to learning how to catch more bass on the "sissy stick" or "fairy wand", which is what some hardcore power fishermen call spinning tackle.
