Around 2018, John Murray moved near Lake Chickmauga where loads of trophy hunters fish 7 days a week, all year. John prefers to fish less pressured waters nearer to his home, but years fishing against top-level tournament anglers has given him the confidence that he can catch them on pressured lakes, if he has to. In this bass fishing video class seminar, Murray shares his tips for standing out in the crowd and catching bass the other guys are passing up.
