No matter if Mr. Bill catches them on a big lake or a private lake. A fish is a fish, a bass is bass! They will do the same thing no matter what water they live in. Yeah they maybe bigger in a pound where they can grow. But his methods will catch fish anywhere! I travel alot fishing bass tournament and do well and the number one question is how do you learn all these different lakes. I just remind people how small a bass's brian is and how they dont changed the way they live.
Ha ha! Thats not true! If that was the case, no one will catch fish that has already been caught. Fish dont get educated? How many times is a fish caught more then once? Look at the tournament fishing world. You can prefish and then catch fish the next day in a tournament. On the same bait.The same fish! Plus on big lakes, there are alot more fish that dont even see a bait. I will end with this, keep in this mind.
First how many times do you think Mr. Bill has caught the same fish in his own private lake? Its alot more than any fish being caught in a big lake. That right there tells you they dont get educated. Bass are opportunist and preditors. They react or they eat. If they were any more educated, then they would know the bait was fake. How many baits look like nothing that is in nature, but yet catches fish all day long!?
Second, As far as catching 5 pounders every cast thats bc he bass are more healthy and can live longer in those conditions. But for u to say catching 5 pounders dont impress you? That actually is very impressive to make sure his private lake is healthy enough to produce such fish.
Last, the way he catches bass will be the same anywhere. I mean he is still one of the greatest tournament fisherman of all time. He made his career fishing bass tournaments. You can learn alot from his techniques. I think people get to caught up in the fish itself. He nor has any company ever said that there bait or technique will catch BIGGER fish? That is something people tell themselves, which would be incorrect. You cant make a bait that only catches big fish. You can go after bigger fish, maybe with bigger baits. But just bc Mr. Bill catches a 5 pounder in his pond, doesnt mean u will on his lake. But it does mean it will catch bass!
His methods will catch fish anywhere but everyone that has ever fished a private lake where the fish never see an artificial lure know they are a whole lot easier to catch than lakes that receive a ton of pressure. I don't care how small his "brian" is, fish get educated in highly pressured public water. Watching him catch 5 pounders on every cast in a lake that a 10 year old could do the same doesn't impress me.
