This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – Swimbaits – fishing.

Hi fellow AMFisHers!   This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about swimbaits: Swimbaits have been on the market for a few years now and many have been tweaked from what was available back then, as technology has assisted manufacturers in making very superior baits these days. These baits are typically made of soft plastic material and are made to resemble baitfish/minnows.   With some of them having very unique paddle tails that cause quite a realistic swimming acting, you can ea

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – heavily salted baits – fishing.

Hi AMFisHers!  This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about using heavily salted baits: Salted baits can catch you a lot of fish as do all scented baits, whether they are natural scents, live prey technology blood trail scents and pheromones, BUT understanding how they each make a bait look when you present them to the fish is a very key thing. Did you know that heavily salted baits sink?  They are so dense in the water that these salted baits sink and further more do not look as

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – using silent baits.

Hi AMFisHers!   This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about using silent baits: Now you might be wondering to yourself what is this AMFisH guy talking about silent baits, what silent baits everything these days has rattles in it!  Well you are pretty close to be 100% correct on that but there are a few silent baits out there still, as some manufacturers have gone back to making a silent bait. A good example of this is jerkbaits and crankbaits, most of us know them to have rattles

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – Using fishing leaders – fishing

Hi AMFisHers!   This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about using fishing leaders: Leaders are basically a very durable line that is used with a swivel to tie your main line to and the purpose they serve is to protect your main line from any harm. If you are like me and fish for predator species like pike and musky you will know that the teeth on these fish can do a lot of damage, especially to a thin fishing line and this is where leaders comes in. Fishing leaders are made from

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – tips for trolling – fishing

Hi AMFisHers!   This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is tips for trolling: Trolling is a great natural way to present a bait to fish and comes in handy on those slow fishing days, as this natural presentation can result in strikes.   It’s also a great way to catch some bigger better quality fish as well, as you are covering a lot of water by constantly moving around the lake. One of the biggest benefits of trolling is that you actually learn the lake bottom very well, when it comes

AMFisH daily blog post – dark and natural colours are the way to go on very overcast days.

Hi fellow AMFisHers!   This AMFisH blog post is about using the right colour bait on those very overcast days as well as on low light days, even around dusk. When the sun is out and very bright you will want to use all those bright flashy colours,  something like a nice bright white and nickel blade as you can see in the picture below. Bright days means the fish will see bright baits and flash very easily from below while looking up of following a bait, so use all those flash

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – Have doubles of your top producing baits!

Hi fellow AMFisHers!   This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about having doubles of your top producing baits: This is not something many people think about BUT it really is important for many reasons.  I will use me and my chartreuse spinnerbaits as an example, this is my go to bait that has caught me a lot of fish over the years and a bait that I have a great deal of confidence in using. My chartreuse double Colorado nickel blade spinnerbaits(see pic below) are so important to

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – tips for removing human scents from your hands – fishin

Hi fellow AMFisHers!   This week AMFisH fishing vlog is about removing human scent from your hands while fishing: This is a critical part to fishing and human scents on a bait can very quickly result in catching no fish.   These scents range from bug spray to UV protection lotion, gum, hand cream and the list goes on and on. Once these scents get onto a bait, especially a soft plastic bait or something with rubber, it will embed itself on the bait and give that smell off to t

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – flipping jig is a good bait for largemouth bass!

Hi AMFisHers!   This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about the flipping jig being a good bait for largemouth bass: Flipping jigs are a skirted material sitting on a jighead with a weed guard and are designed to be fished in thick weed cover.   You would typically fish these baits with a soft plastic trailer on the hook, which sits right under the skirt giving the bait a body(see picture below). These baits are a very good bait for largemouth bass BUT you can catch other species

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – Go old school with baits sometimes.

Hi fellow AMFisHers!    This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about going old school with baits sometimes: With so many different baits on the market we sometimes forget about baits we used to catch a lot of fish on, hence why I decided to shoot this vlog about going old school! I am pretty sure you all have some of those older fishing baits, maybe a jerkbait with no rattles in it made of wood, or a slender looking old style top water frog and in my case a simple black 6″ finesse

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – different ways to cast.

Hi fellow AMFisHers!  This AMFisH fishing vlog is about all the different ways you can cast: When it comes to casting I can’t stress anymore more important than being a versatile as possible on the water.   Knowing how to reach those key spots with a cast is definitely a make or break situation on fish being caught. In this video you will see the extreme comfort level I have when it comes to casting, this has taken a lot of practice but the benefit is huge as I can quickly re

Daily AMFisH blog post – what you need to dropshot.

Hi fellow AMFisHers!  It’s a cool spring and the dropshot technique is a great presentation to target fish with this cool damp spring weather. It’s a pretty simple rig, a hook dropshot weight and a soft plastic or live bait, that’s it! Best part of this presentation is it almost works by itself!  Very little action is needed and a few easy twitches can go a long way. Experiment with the length of line between the sinker and hook, as the bait will need to remain above the fish

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – use trailers on your baits to increase you odds.

Hi AMFisHers!    This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about using trailers on your baits to increase your odds of catching fish: Baits work as they are outside of the packages BUT there are always ways to increase your chances of catching more fish! Once key thing I do is use soft plastic trailers on my spinnerbaits and bucktails, WHY well it’s simple as AMFisHers we need as much of an advantage as we can get getting those fish to strike and by adding a soft plastic to a bait yo

Today’s AMFisH fishing blog post – tips for spooling line on a baitcasting reel.

Hi AMFisHers!   Spring fishing is almost here and I thought I would share a post with some tips in it for spooling line on to your baitcasting reels. First fishing line does not last for many years and it ages quicker is left in direct lights so keep your spools tucked away in a dark place.  Depending on how often you fish it is a good idea to get into the practice of changing it every season, mono and fluorocarbon for sure, with braid you can usually get away with cutting of

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – The AMFisH creation story, video #100!

Hi fellow AMFisHers!  This is a very special AMFisH fishing vlog that is going live this week, as it is the AMFisH creation story vlog as well as my 100th video that has gone live on my YouTube channel! AMFisH goes back many years to the time when I was in the mid teens and thinking of what wanted to do for a living or what I wanted to be part of as a career, a very confusion time for me as I knew fishing was what I wanted to do but had not idea how I would get to doing it. F

AMFisH daily blog post – spring fishing bait tips!

Hi fellow AMFisHers!   Spring is just around the corner and there are some key spring fishing strategies when it comes to what baits to use. Bait fish are their smallest in the very early months so throwing a huge bait does not make for a good choice.   You will want to stick to smaller baits, in the 3.5″ and shorter range, as well as slimmer profile baits with not too much body bulk. Spring is the time of year when everything is rejuvenating itself, small fry bait fish are s

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – my biggest Canadian largemouth bass catch, a 7lb monster!

AMFisHers!   This week s AMFisH fishing vlog is a short video of my biggest Canadian largemouth bass caught to date, 7lb monster! I was fishing a well known spot on a lake I fish a lot on and it was very close to sunset, when I decided to end the day fishing that spot.  I saw a huge breech and new something big was in the area on a feed so I continued to circle this massive weed/rock filled structure, using my go to bait double Colorado chartreuse spinnerbait with a twin boog
