MLF Pro Angler Nick Hatfield Joins Bass University on the water to break down fishing grass for big bass
Nick Hatfield, an experienced angler, is here to share his tips on fishing in areas with lots of vegetation. Nick discusses his strategies for choosing the right fishing equipment, including rods, reels, and lines, along with his favorite baits for catching fish in dense vegetation during the fall season. He also emphasizes the importance of identifying high percentage areas when fishing in heavy vegetation.
Nick compares fishing in heavy vegetation to searching for a needle in a haystack, requiring a keen eye and ear to spot the right types of grass and listen for baitfish activity.
During his fishing trip, Nick encounters several fish blowing up on his topwater frog lure, but not fully committing to it. To overcome this challenge, he switches to a punching setup to successfully catch bass.
