It was on the MS river. As for his many ponds he fish... It makes for better TV, with less boat traffic, and easier to film.

Dont understand why so many folks hate on Bill

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.

His private lake gets fished all the time! It takes about 5 fishing trips for one show. A lot of editing. And as far as educating, no they don't educate. They react and eat. You may catch more fish on a private lake then on a public lake. Bc the fish to acreage ratio. But you still catch the fish the same way. The public lake fish will have to eat the same amount as a private lake. And yes I do fish private lakes and spend a lot of time stocking em. A bass is a bass! No matter where?

And o I want to add that Mr. Bill doesn't do shows on public lakes bc of the sho itself. No boat traffic, people, etc. You think people would leave him alone if they saw him fishing. Look at his saltwater show. There in the ocean. All public waters. You say he only catch fish bc he fishes private lakes. When in fact he can catch them anywhere at anytime. And this all I'm going to say on this topic. Good day.

Bill Dance is first a great person, and secondly he is an exceptional fisherman. This man has devoted his life to fishing, so yes he could teach me, you and 99% of us how to fish different scenarios, but then there is a few that knows more than anyone else.
The reason I speak this about Bill, is my Stepson has a guide service and he had been fishing with Bill Dance all during the time leading up to him catching the 110 pounder.
You can get on Bill Dance web site and you will see that he gives cudo's to George Young.
On the 83 pound fish that Bill caught was on my Stepson's boat, which I have photos of.

I would like to add that my 12 yo granddaughter caught a 16 pounder, and my 21 yo grandson caught a 24 pounder the same day as Bill caught his 83 pounder.
Pround of my kids and grandkids love of the outdoors, my Stepson George is a fine ambassador of the hunting and fishing life.
