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.

To everyone at Bass University, Thank you guys for all that you do! I signed up for a yearly subscription last year and learned so much from all of the seminars. It was so convenient to find seminars on every topic all in one place. Without Bass University I was always searching the internet to find out new tips and techniques but this really simplified things. I really appreciate you bringing this wealth of knowledge to us anglers so thanks again!
