Fishing Tiny Backwaters For Angry Bass | Florida Bass Fishing!

Welcome to the everglades! The bass are big and aggressive in this beautiful backwater jungle! The environment is unlike any other fishery in the country but the bass and alligators both love to eat topwater and swimbaits. If you’ve ever wondered what its like to fish this amazing fishery, come along for an exciting ride through the backwaters of Southern Florida!

Tim met up with good friends Coop and Cobi for this adventure. The 3 anglers ventured deep into the swamp in search of big bass and they found what they were looking for! The most amazing part of the experience is that bass in this unique environment ate all the same baits as largemouth at home. The fish were happy to rise up on frogs, poppers, and vixens, and were just as likely to eat a glide bait. It proved yet again that a bass’ basic instincts are the same regardless of the environment it grew up in.

Below you’ll find a list of the baits and gear the guys were using as they explored the glades. We’ve also included links to Cobi and Coop’s instagram accounts, as well as a link to our “Edits” playlist for other videos with this style of editing. We hope you enjoyed this everglades adventure!
