About

The Coarse and Match Channel focuses on freshwater fishing, both in the UK and overseas. In the UK, ‘coarse’ fish are those freshwater fish that aren’t classified as game fish (trout, salmon, grayling). Popular UK coarse species include roach, perch, chub, barbel, tench, bream, dace and pike which reside in rivers, lakes, ponds and canals. Primarily these species are fished for using float fishing or ledgering tactics, some species can also be targeted with spinning gear. Baits for coarse fish are varied ranging from natural baits like worms to maggots and casters, bread, sweetcorn and a wide range of pre-prepared baits such as pellets and boilies from tackle shops. Ground bait is often used to pull fish into the anglers’ swim, and this can either be bought or prepared beforehand.
Our match fishing content covers tactics and techniques used by well-known UK match anglers. Match anglers target similar fish to coarse anglers with matches organised on rivers and small lakes. Matches are timed and involve the anglers drawing pegs at the beginning of the match with the best overall weight of fish at the weigh in, winning the match. Match anglers tend to use poles which use elastic at the end of the rod to play the fish rather than the traditional rod and reel set up used in most other forms of angling. Match anglers are busy anglers, constantly baiting, changing hook baits and trying to land as many fish as possible in the quickest time. Anglers pay entry fees so there can often be sizable money prizes for the winners.

Lake Dardanelle in Arkansas is one of the most attractive and popular stops on the Collegiate Bass Fishing circuit and here it is playing host to the 2019 AFTCO Open. This is one of the biggest events of the season, so over 350 students have assembled from all over the country. It's late autumn and the cold, windy conditions are going to make things difficult. At this time of year the Bass are feeding on Shad, so all the talk in the build up is about getting hold of the best imitation Shad lures. Out on the water it's "find the Shad, find the Bass". Last year's winners Rudy Worley and John David Nowlin from Blue Mountain College are here to defend their trophy, but aren't finding things quite so easy this time around. One pair who do get off to a good start are fellow "Toppers" Isaac Duncan and Taylor Owens, but it looks like many of the teams will be struggling to fill their limits.

Garrett Warren and John Owens from Snead State Community College are carrying a half pound lead into the second day with their 17.85 lbs bag from day 1. They head back to where they were successful yesterday, but in close proximity are the teams lying in second and third places, all fishing the same area, near the shore, half way down the lake. Garrett and John know that with only a short session available, 3 or 4 good fish might be enough. To watch 2019 AFTCO Open Day 2 now, just login or join

The first ACA event of the 2019-20 season is the Big Bass Bash, this year staged on Kentucky Lake at Paris, Tennessee. This meeting should have taken place back in March, but due to unseasonally high water, had to be moved down the calendar to October. Almost 200 teams have arrived, all with one aim in mind, to catch the biggest fish over their two days out on the lake. The Fall isn't always the easiest time to catch Bass, add to that abnormally high temperatures and who knows how the fish are going to behave or where they are going to be found. Although everyone agrees it's going to be tough, opinions vary on what size will win it, with the consensus suggesting somewhere around 7lbs will be enough. There are 4 weigh in sessions each day with prizes and points being awarded for each one, but it's the big one that they are all hoping to catch.

The 2019 Collegiate Bass series Big Bass Bash from Kentucky Lake, Tennessee enters day 2 with the hundreds of student anglers all looking to bag the biggest single Bass of the two days. There are 4 weigh in sessions each day, all carrying prizes and points. The largest Bass caught on day one weighed in at only 4.85lbs, much less than was expected, so everyone is hoping they can go out and smash that today. The conditions are slightly more favourable, but the organisers have added a twist, the only baits that can be used are those of the tournament sponsor, Berkley. With the water temperature warmer than normal, it sounds as though the top water lures will be used the most. Session 2 is won by Hunter Schneider from Adrian College with a largemouth at 5.16lbs, but will that be enough to win the whole event? To watch 2019 Big Bass Bash Day 2 now, just login or join

The biggest event of the season and the climax to the 2019 Texas Team Trail is the Championship, this year at Belmont Lake. This is a rocky clear water impoundment in central Texas that holds some big Bass, the last time the tour stopped here a Largemouth over 13lbs was caught. The 116 teams competing over the two days will be hoping to find something similar, but the water levels are high after recent rain and the currents are stronger than normal as the water is being released. It's also fairly cloudy, so expect a lot of finesse tactics over rocky ledges and teams targeting the many docks and marinas dotted around the lake. As well as the Championship trophy, there's also the Team of the Year award to be decided, so everyone will be hoping to put themselves in a good position going in to day 2.

Day 2 of the Championship Tournament provides the most exciting action of the 2019 Texas Team Trail season. 116 teams are competing at Belton Lake in central Texas and after a first day that proved tough for most of the pairs, struggling to bag over 16lbs, one team, BJ Carothers and Thomas Wells have a commanding lead. The rest have to hope that these guys come up short today, whilst bagging a big limit themselves. There is great tournament coverage with cameras out on the boats of all of the top 3, so enjoy every twist and turn. As well as the Championship Trophy, the Team of the Year Award will also be decided, this rewards the most consistent pair over the course of the whole season and as we enter the last dat only 1 point separates the top two.

Here we preview the culmination of the 2018-19 Collegiate Bass Fishing Series, the biggest event in the calendar, the 2019 Championship. Held in late May on Pickwick Lake at Florence, Alabama, hundreds of college anglers arrive early for practice sessions and to be "wined and dined" by some of the big names in the Bass fishing industry. Yamaha hold an appreciation evening, with a casting competition and plenty of prizes. Garmin show off their latest technology including the PanOptix Livescope and on "Banquet Night" the competitors fill their goody bags with freebies from a host of other sponsors. Feedback from the practice sessions is mixed, in mid summer the Bass tend to go deep, so the teams are looking for ledges holding shoals of fish. The winners will be the ones that can get the most out of their electronics and make the best choice of baits. As well as the Championship trophy, the 2019 School of the Year award is also up for grabs, so it promises to be two days of intense competition. In the next episode we follow the highlights from Day 1. To watch 2019 Collegiate Bass Championship now, just login or join

After all the build up, we finally get into the action on Day 1 of the 2019 Collegiate Bass Championship on Pickwick Lake, Alabama. There are over a hundred teams representing their respective colleges and universities, in what is regarded as the biggest event of the year. As well as the Championship trophy, the award for School of the Year will also be presented. The pairs have to fill a 5 fish limit and the guess is that anything over 20lbs will be near the top of the leaderboard. A couple of practice sessions have suggested that the Bass will be deep in the water and that locating some well inhabited ledges could be key to success. Defending champions Cole Floyd and Carter McNeil from Bethel University are out early and putting a decent bag of fish together, can they make it two years in a row?

After day 1 of the 2019 Collegiate Bass Championship, last years winners Cole Floyd and Carter McNeil were top of the leader board with a total of just under 23lbs, can they go back to back? They know they will have to produce something similar on Day 2 to do so. The rest of the field will be hoping they can find a shoal of large fish to give themselves a chance, something over 25lbs will be needed. The conditions are similar to Day 1 with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the high 90's. As well as the Championship trophy, the School of the Year Award is also going to be decided, with McKendree University looking favourites having held the top spot for the previous 8 weeks and having two teams in the top 10 after day 1.

Into April and the second stop on the 2019 Texas Team Trail is at Lake Texoma. With the temperature in the 60's the Bass have moved up on to the beds and are in full spawn, but a rain storm with 30 mph winds is forecast, so conditions are going to be interesting. Over 200 teams are once again competing, all with their own theories on where best to find the big Bass. There are plenty of docks and marinas on Texoma and these prove to be very popular with teams sight casting soft plastic and crank baits to the large fish that have already moved up. The shoreline proves even more popular late in the day once the heavens open and lightning strikes are seen in the area.

The 2019 Texas Team Trial kicks off at Lake Travis, a highland reservoir on the Colorado River in central Texas. It's early March and the lake is transitioning into a Springtime pattern, but the large females have been put off moving up into shallow water to spawn by a series of cold fronts. 220 two man teams have gathered for this one day event, looking to fill a 5 fish limit and take home a share of the $100,000 worth prizes that are up for grabs. Because of the colder than normal conditions there is a difference of opinion on the best tactics to use, whether to fish the rocks and docks along the shallows for the spawning fish or to head out into deeper water looking for the pre-spawn Bass. Either way, it's not going to be easy and a bag over 20lbs can expect to be in the mix. To watch 2019 Lake Travis now, just login or join

Highlights of the 2019 National Walleye Tour kick off on Lake Winnebago, Oshkosh, Wisconsin where 166 boats are competing over two days, with over half a million dollars worth of prizes up for grabs. It's early May and the water temperature is in the 50's, meaning that conditions are going to be tough. On day 1 there are a few early attempts at trolling but gradually the teams start stacking up on the most popular spots. At the weigh in only 23 teams had achieved a 5 fish limit and taking a narrow lead into the second day with a bag of just 14.79 lbs is local angler Tom Keenan. Although the weather is a lot more pleasant on Day 2, Tom thinks he just needs a bag of a similar weight to finish in top spot. But there are plenty of guys just below him on the leader board with other ideas. To watch 2019 Lake Winnebago Oshkosh now, just login or join

The 2019 National Walleye Tour moves on to Marinette on the Bay of Green Bay, part of Lake Michigan. Experience says that the Walleye are hard to find here, but the ones you do find are big, so watch out for some heavy bags at weigh in. The bay is 120 miles long so there are plenty of options open to the teams, but by heading north they are likely to find the really big Walleye. Day 1 proves to be tough, high water and lower than normal temperatures take their toll, but one man smiling at the end of it is John Hoyle, who with a bag weighing 41.37lbs takes the overnight lead. On day 2 he carries on with the same tactics, ripping lipless crank baits along sand and rock transition points. A lot of the other teams decide to troll, but not second placed Korey Sprengel, with only just over a pound to make up he too is casting crank baits. A couple of early fish around the 8lb mark put him right in the frame, but will John be able to crank his way to another big bagful? To watch 2019 Marinette, Green Bay now, just login or join

We continue highlights of the 2019 NWT Championship with action from day 1 and day 2 from Devils Lake, North Dakota. 87 of the top Walleye anglers from across north America have come together to decide who will be crowned 2019 Tour Champion and also who will become Angler of the Year. Conditions are wet and windy, so most anglers won't be travelling to too many spots, but trying to make the most of the ones they have recced in pre-fish. Mike Goffron heads the leaderboard at the end of the first day with a bag weighing in at 28.22lbs. When the anglers arrive for day 2 they are greeted by very strong winds, so tournament director Anthony Wright postpones the action for a day. Conditions are a lot calmer and a little warmer the following morning so it's all systems go. All the anglers will be hoping to net a full 5 fish limit to give themselves a chance of making the top 10 and qualifying for day 3. To watch 2019 NWT Championship Day 2 now, just login or join

The 2019 National Walleye Tour comes to an exciting climax here on Day 3 of the Championship. 87 pro anglers started the event hoping to lift the Tour Championship trophy and 10 of them have made it into the third and final day. Conditions have been tough and anyone with a two day total over 36lbs has made it in. They are now looking to add to that with a full 5 fish limit. Dusty Minke is top of the leader board with 43.18lbs but close behind is John Hoyer who is on a hot streak having featured strongly in the last two events. Veteran Tom Keenan, has said he will retire at the end of this season, has extended his career by one more day having qualified in 8th place, he now looks favourite to take the Angler of the Year Award, which would be a fantastic way to bow out.

The Sam Rayburn Reservoir is arguably one of the best Bass fishing lakes in the States and The Texas Team Trail was scheduled to visit it twice in 2019. The February event had to be postponed because of severe flooding, so it was moved to coincide with the meeting in mid May, taking place on the Friday, with the second, totally separate competition taking place the day after. It seems that the weather just doesn't want to play ball this year as one of the pre-fish days was interrupted by a hail storm unloading rocks of ice the size of tennis balls all over the lake. On their early morning arrival at the ramps for event 1 the teams are greeted by strong winds and heavy rain. The tournament officials are happy to give it the green light, so with their waterproofs about to be well and truly tested, it's game on. The consensus is that with all the rain there won't be any topwater action with the fish moving out to a depth of 14-20ft. But despite this there are going to be some big Bass caught and there will be some heavy bags at the end of the day. To watch 2019 Sam Rayburn Bass Tournament now, just login or join

The second of back to back tournaments at the world famous Sam Rayburn Reservoir on the 2019 Texas Team Trail, this is the the last qualifier before the season finale Championship at Belton Lake. Fortunately the wind and rain have eased off, so the 247 teams competing for over $100,000 of prizes will have a lot more options available to them. Yesterday they were all catching plenty of fish, but only small ones, in the 2lb mark, so with the water more accessible they are hoping they will be able to locate something a bit bigger. But its seems that the fish are all over the place and the teams have to be versatile and adopt a variety of patterns. Its looking like anything over 20lbs may win it.

The third stop on the 2019 National Walleye Tour is at Sault Ste Marie in Michigan. This fishing opportunities here are almost endless, as it sits on the St Mary's River that runs the short distance between Lakes Superior and Huron. It's not unheard of for competitors to travel over 100 miles to reach a favourite marque. Conditions on day 1 aren't ideal, as there is no wind and the anglers are presented with flat calm waters. Local pro David Atkinson starts by trolling spinners over an area of rock piles that he knows, but to little effect. One summer tactic that proves popular is "shivering" where a glidebait is jigged on deep structures. With less than half the field making the 5 fish limit, the overnight leader is David Kolb with a total of 30.97lbs. But sitting just behind him is last week's champion John Hoyer, hoping to go back to back. Whilst David is trolling, John is casting baits and after his co-angler Robert Olson hooks a couple of big ones early doors, it looks like game on!

Mike D will admit that he has two passions in life, one is Bass fishing and the other is the Washington Redskins NFL football team. So when he has the chance to combine the two, in Lukerville's Bass Bowl II, he jumps at the chance. He's putting his bass fishing skills and the honour of the Skins up against Kenny C, born in the Bronx, and a lifelong New York Giants fan. It's 7 points for a Large or Smallmouth and 1 point for a Rocky. Kenny has home advantage as they're fishing on his regular lake and he kicks off in a patch of weed near the shoreline. He thinks his Texas Rig Worm bait will work smoothly through the cover and the bass won't be able to resist. Mike's using a tried and trusted Senko salty stick bait. In the opening quarter they trade fish for fish and there's only one point in it at half time. Can Mike find the steely determination needed to see his beloved Redskins lift the trophy?

Whenever you turn up at a body of water one of the first things you need to assess is where in the water column you are likely to find the Bass. Your electronics can help with this, but so will years of experience. Wade Middleton has just that and here he passes on some tips and advice. He starts off fishing a small pond in late summer where he is expecting to find the Bass on the top, so he uses a floating frog bait and jumps it across the surface. You're quite likely to find a lot of vegetation in a pond, so might need to use a lure that will get you through that. When trying to locate fish at the bottom of a bigger lake he relies heavily on his electronics to spot any potential baitfish as well as the Bass, but also uses the feel of his lure as he pulls it over the contours. He and Jeff Reynolds discuss their favourite bottom lures, Jeff is a big fan of the MVP Football jig because of the way it moves across the lake bed and you can see why here.

In this episode Clark Wendlandt offers up plenty of advice on Bass Fishing in Grass. Grass is good. Bass thrive in grass, but conditions will dictate where in the grass you will find them, on sunny days they will tend to sit low, looking for cover, whereas on cloudy days you may find them cruising around the top. The time of year will also affect where in the grass Bass will hide, in colder winter months you might find them under thick matting in very shallow water up against the bank and in summer when the grass is at its longest and deepest, the only way of presenting a bait might be by vertical jigging. Clark has a favourite lure for all of these scenarios and he shows you how to use them once you have found the fish. He's also got some great tips on how to use your boat electronics to do just that.

In this episode Wade Middleton and Clark Wendlandt have plenty of tips and advice for Bass Fishing in Windy Conditions. Many anglers will consider a strong wind their enemy, something they will have to battle with if they want to catch fish. But Wade and Clark show how to make the wind your friend. Fish a bank where the wind is behind you, so it helps the cast. Boat positioning will be difficult so go with the wind along the bank rather than trying to head into it. If you get it right, a day out in conditions like this can be very rewarding, as the fish seem less wary and the bites come thick and fast.

Host Wade Middleton believes that fishing for Bass on or near dams is always a great idea. Whether the dam in question is a small earthworks on a pond or a huge concrete structure on a big reservoir, you will always find plenty of fish holding up next to it. As with any new water the first thing to do is check it out, use your electronics at assess the drop off, look for any signs of baitfish, see what sort of vegetation there is on or near the bank. Quite often dam walls will be made of piles of rocks and the edge of these and other riff-raff areas can be very productive. Wade and some of his fellow Bass professionals offer up great advice on what types of lure work best in these conditions and what rods, reels and line to use with them. They also talk about how to make the most of the currents and winds that can are usually be quite unique to the larger man made structures. To watch Bass Fishing Near Dams now, just login or join

In the first of a new series host Clark Wendlandt spends a couple of days Bass Fishing on Brandy Branch reservoir. Its a typical east Texas grass lake, with plenty of submerged vegetation and timber. Because he hasn't fished here before Clark has to rely on his instinct and of course his sophisticated array of Garmin electronics. He starts by vertical jigging in about 20ft of water, right on the edge of an area of grass that he has seen on his PanOptix. It works, he lures a fish out of the cover with just about every cast. The following morning he adopts a different approach, casting surface lures with a slow retrieve. The secret here is to stay alert, constantly looking out for rising and breaking fish that you can cast to. Again he is spot on and bags a load of good looking Bass between 3 and 6 pounds.

If you walk down the aisles of any major tackle shop, you will be overwhelmed by the vast choice of Bass Fishing Rods and Reels on display. Here Wade Middleton and Clark Wendlandt pass on some great tips and advice on how to make sure you end up choosing the equipment that's best suited to your needs. When thinking about buying a rod things to consider are budget, length, strength, loop size, the type of handle and how you want the reel to sit, it's also worth considering whether you need a range of rods to cover different fishing conditions. Baitcaster reels come in a lot of different sizes and set ups. Things to consider here are left or right hand, gear ratios and retrieve speeds, the braking system and range of adjustment on the drag. Spinning reels get discussed too. Generally the more money you've got to spend, the higher the quality of equipment you will get. One of Wade's best tips is to try the feel of a rod and reel combination in the shop before you commit, its got to feel right for you. To watch Bass Fishing Rods and Reels now, just login or join

The general consensus is that Sam Rayburn Reservoir is the the Best Bass Fishing Lake in the country and Clark Wendlandt isn't about to disagree. He hasn't fished it for a while, so he's treating it like a new water, fishing familiar looking features, such as the overhanging vegetation on a shallow bank. He's got plenty of lure baits rigged up and ready to go, a swim jig, a buzz bait, a popping perch as well as a few baits to flip with, so he's keeping his options open and waiting to see what works. He starts off skipping a 1.5 crankbait in under the cover and manages to tempt a few Bass. As things go quiet he switches to a buzz bait which he likes to use as a search bait, covering a lot of water. Sure enough it finds him a bigger Bass. Plenty of tips on how to make the most of your Power Poles to position the boat correctly and on how to fish in lakes with a lot of grass or other deep vegetation.

Host Wade Middleton takes a look at some of the new developments in Boat Electronics that are making huge differences to his ability to catch fish. First up is the Garmin Panoptix Livescope which with its HD resolution screen presents with amazing clarity an image of what is under the front of the boat. It's now possible to see the shape and size of the fish as they swim below, it almost makes it too easy. He also takes a look at the advancements in mapping, in particular the new colour depth shading, that makes it very easy to navigate over the same depth, once you have found fish. Wade also shows how using both of these in tandem can make it much easier to find holes in submerged grass. The poor Bass don't stand a chance.

Today Mika is without his rods and instead planning to get a head start on the Crayfish season. He starts showing us how he prepares his traps with some Bream as bait, before heading out on the lake on his boat. After finding a good rocky spot in around 5 metres of water, he places the creels out in the water. Typically Crayfish are found in numbers in shallower water but by going deeper, he thinks he's more likely to catch the bigger ones. He returns 24hrs later and collects 10 nice looking Crayfish from his traps which he then transfers to a larger pot that he's filling with crayfish for a few days. Mika then shows us how he likes to cook these Crayfish. He firstly boils a large pan of salted water into which he adds Crown Dill and a can of dark beer before adding 5 or 6 Crayfish which he cooks for 5 minutes or until they float to the surface. Once he's removed the Crayfish, Mika adds more Crown Dill to the boiling water before letting thr pot cool down. He then adds the Crayfish back into the water and puts the whole pot in the fridge overnight to further impart flavour into the Crayfish. Finally Mika, sits down at the table and shows us exactly how he eats the Cayfish, getting every last delicious piece of meat out.

Although Des is generally thought of as a river angler, he admits that he loves Carp fishing and here at the Sitch Lake in Shropshire he is able to indulge himself during a two day session in the famous Holiday swim. It's April and although the sun is shining in clear blue skies it's unseasonably cold and the water temperature has dropped, so Des is taking a cagey approach, not over feeding. He's casting a slow sinking pineapple wafter hookbait that he hope's will sit just above his free offerings, halved Scopex Squid 20mm boilies soaked in Tigernut juice with Betaine and Hemp Oil that he's strung on a short PVA thread and attached to the hook. He's hoping that the wafter will sit just above these and be the first thing sucked into an unsuspecting hungry carp's mouth. The lake is a consistent 4 feet deep with a silty bottom and Des has seen carp breaking the surface about 70 yards out, so he's casting his two rods into this area. There are plenty of Carp in the lake ranging from 20lbs to one just over 50lbs but in these conditions Des will be happy with a bite or two. He doesn't have to wait too long before he gets a drop back on the alarm and the game is on. Des has been carp fishing for many years and has plenty of tips on reading the conditions, casting techniques and bait presentation making this a great film to watch.

No two visits to the water are the same, even if you keep fishing the same lake and here Wade tries to unravel the mysteries of what it takes to keep catching Bass. He's out on a large dammed reservoir with old buddy and fellow pro angler Jeff Reynolds, whenever these two are fishing together it's always competitive. Wade is on a poor run of form, not having caught anything over 3lbs on his last ten outings. It's a cold windy day so he decides to bounce a crankbait over the rocks on the wall of the dam. And it works, immediately he's into a run of big Bass. Jeff was convinced he was going to catch them on his trap lure but doesn't have the same luck. How long before he switches to a crankbait too. Wade is delighted that he's chosen the right shape and colour combination for the conditions. Eventually Jeff swallows his pride, switches lures and lo and behold!

Whenever Clark Wendlandt comes across a new body of water, whether it's a large lake or a small pond, he's immediately wondering if it's holding Bass and how he could go about catching them. It's a fascination shared by all avid fishermen. In this episode he's taking his boat out on a small lake in north Texas and sets about explaining his thought processes on how to find the fish and how best to catch them. The water temperature is cold so he starts with a jerkbait just above the top of the grass. As he moves around the lake he obviously relies heavily on his electronics and finds some fish out in open water near the dam. He uses a swim bait to cover the area quickly and is encouraged when he quickly hooks one. He's now thinking there are probably some bigger Bass to be had. As he starts reeling in 8-10 pounders he knows he's hit the jackpot with this new water. To watch Catching Bass in New Water now, just login or join

In this episode Des is joined by his good mate Keith on an adventure into the Celtic Deeps in the Irish Sea fishing for sharks. They're onboard The Antlantic Blue, skippered by Andy Truelove out of Dale, a beautiful village on the Pembrokeshire coast. It's a two and a half hour trip out to the Deeps where Andy thinks they will have a very good chance of catching a Blue Shark or two and possibly a Porbeagle. But the journey isn't dull, as there's quite often dolphins and whales to be seen. Andy recommends drift fishing, letting the boat follow the wind and the currents, hoping he can attract the sharks with the scent trail he is leaving with the chum in his 'Rubby Dubby' bag. They are using mackerel deadbaits, with the tails chopped off to stop them spinning and the bellies cut open to create as much scent as possible, dropped to a depth of around 50 feet. They've got four rods out at various distances from the boat and its one of Des's that's first to go. it's not one of the monsters they are hoping for but a nice 'bluey' none the less. The sighting of a Fin Whale creates some excitement but not as much as the bend in Keith's rod as he's into his first ever shark. The successful boating off a bluey in the region of 50lbs leaves him "chuffed to bits". Des adds another blue shark but is desperately hoping he can hook a Porbeagle Shark. His dream comes true towards the end of the day as he boats a lovely fish around the 40lb mark. Then Keith hooks the biggest Blue Shark of the day, just as they are about to head for home.

Choke Canyon Reservoir in south Texas is one of host Clark Wendlandt's very favourite places to fish. Sometimes it's "on" and sometimes it's "off", he's heard that it's on an upswing, so is relishing his chance to get out on the water again. As usual he's come armed with a deckful of pre-rigged rods, so that he's always got an alternative bait ready to use if he needs to swap tactics. He knows there will be a lot of grass to fish in or around, but as the water is quite warm he starts on the top skipping a super soft plastic gurgle toad across the surface. First cast he's into a lovely big Bass. Because the water is clear we switches to a swim bait and gets that wiggling just above the hydrilla, its predominantly a visual bait and it seems the Bass just can't resist it. Choke has plenty of cover, there's reeds, brush, wood and loads of hydrilla, so plenty of places for the bass to hold up, Clark explains how choosing the right bait on a lake like this is vital.

Join the legendary Bob James in a two part session on the picture postcard River Wye. He's after chub and barbel, but the river is running low and the water very clear, so he knows the fish will be spooky. He starts by baiting his chosen swim at least an hour before casting in, to allow the fish to start fighting over the food. In this first episode he goes after the chub, trotting a hard pellet hookbait, holding it up against the current with his centre pin reel and a large, heavy float. By regularly baiting the swim to keep the fish feeding he shows how easy it can be to land some decent chub or two. To watch this video now, go to Fishing TV and register.

Bob James continues his session on the River Wye, this time targeting the Barbel. Having regularly chucked balls of groundbait into the spot where he thinks they will be lurking, he's convinced the Barbel will have bullied the Chub out of the swim by now. He steps up his gear for the bigger fish, using a boilie on a hair rig for hook bait, heli-rigged below a cage feeder. He's also switched to a fixed spool reel with a bait runner, to make casting the feeder a bit easier. It all works incredibly well and from the comfort of his bank chair he hooks into some marvellous barbel. To watch this video now, just login or register

Cletus
20:41 
Mike is in Buford, Georgia with old friend, Clint Buice, otherwise known as Cletus Maximus for reasons I'm sure we'll later discover. Its wet, in fact its been raining for 3 weeks but Cletus knows a great Bass lake and so the pair head out. The water in Lake X is naturally a bit coloured with all the rain but by concentrating on likely areas, they soon find some very nice bass. It isn't all smooth sailing though as the engine fails and the pair are forced to paddle back stopping half way back to try and find some fish on the Deeper Sonar. Cletus lands a trophy sized bass before the pair try their luck from the bank. To watch, just login or register

NB - In GERMAN with ENGLISH Subtitles. This film is about what goes on below the surface while coarse fishing – about fishing methods, rigs, bait, and not least the behaviour of the fish. On several of the fishing spots, we have placed underwater cameras, and this means that we get an extraordinary insight into what happens below the surface – when it happens – while fishing. During the exciting tench fishing, we for instance see a three kilo tench picking up the hook bait. You will see incredible underwater footage in this film, but there are great catches too – entertaining fishing situations and new knowledge. It is an instructive film that delves into all the important details involved with coarse fishing. In every actual fishing situation, illustrations of the different rigs being used by the experienced coarse fishermen in the film are shown.

In the final episode of this series, Ville is in Teijo and fishing the coastal waters for Pike, Perch and Zander. At his first mark, Ville sees a lot of fish on the sonar with some big ones at 18m but the majority around 12m which is where he starts fishing. He starts trolling using different swim baits to try and find the Zander but its a small Pike that he first lands. With no more action, he switches location, to a channel between 2 islands but despite the area looking good and a couple of missed takes, he moves on again. This time he finds a rocky bottom area and sees lots on the fish finder but again the fish are playing hard to get. A small Pike is landed but the Zander are proving elusive. Another Pike arrives followed by a nice Perch and the day is getting better by the minute. Ville decides to try a Spinnerbait which he knows can be great for finding more Perch but despite an early hit, he doesn't find any other willing fish. Its been a successful day and Ville returns for fillet a Pike for a well earned dinner.

2016 'Fish O Mania' champion Andy May is on his own in this episode, at Partridge Lakes Fishery, on their Gold Lake. He's tackling one of his favourite subjects - Targeting Silvers on Commercial Lakes in Autumn. He demonstrates all the tactics he uses to fish at 3 different lengths. Short - at 6m he is casting castors by hand. At 13m he uses groundbait and then when the fish are a bit warey of the pole, uses a waggler as an alternative. At each stage he carefully explains how to prepare baits, select and set up rigs and when, where and how to change tactics. His reward is a lovely mixed bag of Skimmers, Roach and F1s.

Host Clark Wendlandt thinks that Deep Water Bass Fishing in the summer is something we could all be a little bit better at. So here he talks through all aspects of deep offshore fishing from the use of electronics, to the different baits and techniques that can be used. He starts off by giving us a guided tour of his boat, the Ranger Z520L, with a look at all the features and what he keeps in all his compartments. Because using your electronics correctly is key to success in deep water, he talks us through how he sets up his screens and what he expects to use each of them for. The first bait he turns to is a deep diving crankbait, one of his favourite lures, but stresses how important it is to use this on the right rod and reel. You need to be able to cast it as far as possible. Another option he likes is a jointed structure head with a rage bug rubber body, dropped to the bottom and moved slowly this looks just like a crawfish and can be very effective on flat ledges. The last thing he goes through is finesse fishing with a drop shot, for this he likes to use a spinning rod and reel, his choice of hook will depend on whether he is fishing in cover or not.

Jamie Hughes and Andy May are at Manley Old Hall Fishery, Cheshire. It's late February, so the guys are looking at early season tactics for open water at commercial lakes. They advise on choosing the best swim, for the conditions you find on the day. Bait selection - Andy starts on the pellet cone and then moves to the maggot feeder and Jamie recommends a slow sinking bait such as pellet or maggots to attract the fish through the water, as well as on the bottom. They talk tackle, matching your rod and reel to fit the job, using a small pole pot for maximum bait accuracy and how to plumb the depths in the margins before dobbing.

Its Summer and Ville has returned to Sarkisalo where he fished earlier in the series. The Pike have finished spawning now and should be in good condition and with light winds and an overcast sky, Ville is confident of some action. He heads to an area where several islands lie and heads to the windward side of the coast which has a rocky bottom and nice reeds in the margins. Ville moves along the shore and into a bay he knowsis a good bet for Pike and soon gets into the first fish of the day, which isn't big but is certainly welcome. Red and white seems to be the killer colour combo today and it isn't long before Ville lands another fish. Next, Ville decides to move to another location and try some trolling at depths between 2-4 metres and with 4 rods out, he can try a wide variety of colours and lure types. Ville explains in detail how to troll effectively, looking for features on the sonar and varying the depth and speed his lures swim at. Ville moves towards shore a little into shallower water and is rewarded with a nice Zander which he's delighted with. Soon after, he completes his day with another Zander, this time a little bigger.

While most Bass anglers will admit to preferring the no nonsense tactics of flipping and spinning, the best ones will have mastered Finesse Tactics on lightweight line and tackle. Clark Wendlandt shows how he ties his dropshotting rig so that he can jiggle a rubber worm 18 inches above the bottom. John Crews matches his hook size to his bait when using smaller rubber lures. Gerald Swindle shows how to tie the Red Phillips knot he uses when he wants to fish a sensitive, lightweight flourocarbon leader on his braided mainline. When conditions get tough this is a go to set up for a lot of the pros and the bait that a lot of them like to use is the Shakey Head. Just throw it out, let it sink to the bottom and then slowly retrieve, allowing it to bounce and hop over the contours. It's the bait that gets a "ton" of bites in all conditions.

Lunkerville host Mike D travels to Le Roy, New York to join FisherMom Susan Brownell and her daughter Celeste for a short session on one of their local rivers. It's fair to say that Susan is a fishing addict and her FisherMom handle pops up on blogs and forums all over the internet. The location she takes Mike to is fairly typical of many urban rivers, it requires scrambling through a fence and then over some concrete blocks before reaching the water. But that doesn't stop it from holding plenty of Large and Smallmouth Bass, Rock Bass and Crappies. Susan gets Mike casting out a small rubber lure, but it is 8 year old Celeste who shows them how its done, with fish after fish on her Minnow live baits. It's not until Mike is given Celeste's Snoopy rod that he finally catches. Of course, if he is slightly peeved at being outfished by an 8 year old school girl, he doesn't show it......much.

Fishing The Magic Hour takes us to the land of the Murray Cod and the Western Great Dividing Range in New South Wales, Australia. Adventure anglers and film makers, Josh Smith and Jamie Condon just love fishing for these apex predators which can reach sizes of 80lb and can live for up to 70 years. As the sun drops in the evening and the shadows start coming over the pools in the gorges, surface lures are the way to go and can elicit some explosive attacks from Murray Cod. The boys get off to a great start landing several decent size fish on the first evening using these tactics. Making an early start the following morning, Jamie finds a nice backwater below a small waterfall and tempts another nice fish as he imitates a stunned bait fish. Looking for structure and ambush points the guys continue to catch more Murray Cod throughout the day using soft plastics. These fish are hard fighting and dont give in, as Jamie finds out later that day hooking and landing the biggest fish so far at around 14Kg. As the sun disappears again, its back on the surface lures with more immediate success. This is a great film for anyone interested in finding out more about Muuray Cod and what it takes to catch these fantastic predators. To watch just login or join

Wade Middleton and Jeff Reynolds get together for another friendly battle, this time using soft lures for Largemouth Bass. They are on Choke Canyon Reservoir, Texas in early Spring, the water is very high and the lake has recently flooded, so the guys find themselves cruising through a lot of submerged vegetation. The Bass are pushed up shallow looking to spawn, so the guys are trying to find and fish a distinctive feature such as the bank of the lake or a submerged track. They quickly find a pattern that works, casting a Trick Stick large soft rubber worm. Jeff talks us through a few ways he likes to set this up and get it moving in the water. Later in the year they are out together again fishing close to the dam wall on a larger lake, this time Jeff has success on another large soft rubber lure the Tour Swim Worm, which is designed to swim effortlessly through shallow grass, he shows that by changing the weight, you can control the retrieve speed.

This episode of the Fisherman's Handbook is split into two sections. In the first part Wade Middleton heads to Minnesota to join Steve Pennaz for a session ice fishing on one of its many frozen lakes. What's got him most excited is that it gives him the chance to play with his Garmin PanOptix. Once they've drilled a hole in the ice he's able to drop his sensor and see on his screen, all the fish activity going on below him. Steve's hoping they will find some decent Pike and Bass, but the first bite Wade gets is a lovely little Sunfish. The PanOptix also allows you to scan the surrounding water for fish and Steve has great fun when he finds school of Crappies. In the second part we take a close look at boat electronics and see how a Garmin PanOptix can be set up, optimising the LiveVu Forward functionality.

Mike kicks off the new series of hit show, Lunkerville, in Southern New Hampshire for a spot of ice fishing with local barman, Todd Grubb and his friend Andrew. Mike has never caught a bass under the ice before so that's the mission today. After heading out on the ice, they dig a few holes and make a tip up rig with a small dead bait before getting Mike set up with a jig in his own hole.  Todd shows Mike how he uses his Deeper Sonar to see the fish below the ice and actually see them coming for the jig. After catching a few small fish, they decide to move location and try a spot where there aren't any boat launches so the bass won't have had any fishing pressure and Todd believes there's 'donkeys' to be caught. A few Pickerel and a Bluegill come quickly but can Mike do what he came for and find a 'donkey' sized Bass ice fishing in New Hampshire. To watch just login or register

The roles are reversed for this session on Cudmore Fisheries, as Andy May gets to sit in the hot seat whilst Jamie Hughes gets to ask the questions. Andy has chosen to fish on Moors Canal so that he can demonstrate his approach to fishing snake lakes on the pole. He starts by fishing to the far bank, finding a depth of about 20 - 22", where he knows he's going to catch smaller fish at first, but doesn't mind as he thinks these will attract the bigger fish. He also baits up in the middle of the lake, and fishes shallow there once he decides its time to switch. To watch this video now, just login or register

A slight change of format for this episode as Jamie Hughes and Andy May discuss the the decisions and tactics that they would apply to a specific venue, in this case Weston Pools in Oswestry. And rather than them both fishing different pegs, here Andy spends the session sitting behind Jamie asking him all the questions that you would like to ask a 3 times Fish O Mania champion. Fishing the Weirpool, a lake he knows very well, Jamie decides the best tactic to maximise his weight is to target Carp & F1s. So he's using pellet, 4mm & 6mm to be precise, but he plays a waiting game feeding very little at first. As the fish to warm up his options increase and he takes advantage of the great fishing to be had at Weston Pools. To watch this video now, just login or register

Mike travels just outside New York City and meets up with locals, 'Lunkerboss' and the 'Pigsticker' on one of the areas many reservoirs. Heading out in a row boat Mike and Marty (Lunkerboss) start in around 15ft of water casting spinnerbaits towards the shore. But its one of those days when the bass just aren't biting no matter what they try. Its a flat calm and the normal tactics of fishing into the shallows just aren't working so they move offshore a little into deeper water. Finally Chris, the 'Pigsticker' comes good catching a beautiful 4lb largemouth and as the breeze gets up, Marty hooks into a stunning 5lber on his spinnerbait. It isn't a day for lots of fish but when you're catching them of this size, who's complaining? Well Mike is as he isn't getting a touch and with the day drawing to a close can he catch a lunker?

Its All About the Food - Charlie seems to be going through a mid life, existential crisis. He's out on his local lake doing, what by all accounts he likes doing best, casting his Spanky lure at a few Largemough Bass. But he can't seem to find the big ones and doubts seem to be invading his furtive mind. Is this really what it's all about? Well maybe not, maybe Its All About the Food.

Its an overcast day and Ville is heading to Kirkkojarvi Lake in Salo. He's planning to do some vertical jigging for Pike and Zander and if that doesn't work, he'll use dead baits and has some Smelt with him for this. Its a cold Spring day and Ville is going to fish deep with a 35g natural coloured jig. Finding a single fish on his sonar and he is able to drop the lure right in front of it and sees the fish approach on his screen but this time it isn't interested. A change in lure colour doesn't provoke a response either so Ville changes tactics, abandons the vertical jigging and fishes close to the shore in shallower water. Casting and fishing his jig normally gets a hit almost straight away and Ville has a tough battle with a good sized Pike. At the last moment it breaks his line, but it isn't long before Ville is into another and this time lands a stunning Pike. The following day, Ville returns to the lake and with calmer conditions, feels he has a great chance to find some Zander. Spotting another individual fish on the sonar, Ville skillfully drops the jig on to it and this time, he hooks up and lands another good sized Pike from Lake Kirkkojarvi. With more fish around and perfect conditions, can Ville find that Zander he's been looking for?

Host Mike D of Lunkerville has been ice fishing on Lake Champlain a couple of times, but this is his first Bass fishing trip. He's joining Rich Zaleski or Rich Z who posts regular fishing reports on the Lunkerville website. Lake Champlain sits on the border of Vermont and New York State and Rich fishes it regularly, he's marqued of likely spots, where there are hidden abutments in about 18' of water. This is a bit too shallow for Smallmouth Bass at any time other than early morning, so he's expecting they will find their Largemouth cousins. The conditions aren't in their favour, with clear blue skies and a rising barometer the Bass might not be too keen. But Rich is using a creature bait, the Lunker City Ozmo in his favourite Green Pumpkin colour. Rich obviously knows what he's doing and between landing plenty of Largemouth he's got a few tips to try and help Mike, who as usual is making things look difficult.

Irish fishing guide Ian Kitson takes us on a tour of some of the superb coarse fishing venues in Country Leitrim, Ireland in this guide to catching more on your fishing trips to the Emerald Isle. Firstly Ian sets up on the bank of the 1000-acre Lough Garradice and shows how to bait up for bream. He runs through his (generous) pre-bait strategy, stressing the importance of putting the time in on the bank, and away from the bar, to ensure superb catches of bream and hybrids. Ian runs through the tackle you need for a feeder session on deep water venues like this, including some tips on spotting bites in windy, choppy conditions, and how to use a groundbait catapult, as he catches one Garradice bream after another. Next we find Ian at Barney's Shore on Lough Allen, where he shows how to fish a fixed waggler, feeding groundbait and casters, to put together a cracking bag of silver fish. The third venue in Part One is St John's River, where Ian's fishing a whip with a flick tip to hand for roach and hybrids, feeding a ball a chuck and enjoying superb running water fishing. Finally in an action-packed programme he switches to a fourth method, fishing rod and line and a Bolognese float - a deadly method when fish move downstream of your feed.

In each episode of Lunkerville Mike D spends a day's fishing with one of the show's loyal fans or forum contributors, here it's the turn of "Low Budget Hooker" Russ Thetonia. He's based in Rhode Island and takes Mike out on one of his local lakes. The Low Budget Hooker ethos, of which Russ is a disciple, is that you don't have to have a $50,000 boat to enjoy your fishing, great fun and satisfaction can be had for very little outlay. Russ actually gives a lot back to fishing, he's a moderator on the popular BassResource.com forum and also an organiser with CAST the childrens' fishing charity. Here he suggests, for a bit of fun that he and Mike change the colour of their rubber stickbait lure, every time they catch. There are plenty of Bass to be had, as well as a few Pickles or Jack Pike, so Russ is rapidly working his way through the 14 different colours in his lure box. Mike however thinks that changing the colour of his hook might be what's needed. To watch Low Budget Hooker now, just login or join

We join enna and Ville back on the boat and seemingly with a shoal of Perch beneath them responding to their lures. Ville is keen to keep changing the lures to keep the fish interested as he knows there are plenty here. As the sun drops, they move to a rocky outcrop which has cast some shade on the water and where they think could now be holding. The theory proves correct as Ville catches a decent Perch in around 7m of water which is quickly followed by another of similar size. Henna also gets in on the action before call it a day on what has been a very fruitful session. Returning to their camp kitchen, Ville and Henna prepare a few of the Perch and smoke them with wood chips and sprigs of wild Juniper. Once cooked, Ville adds the Perch to some 10% saltwater before draining and serving with baked potatoes and the pair enjoy a thoroughly deserved evening meal.

Ville continues his Trout fishing trip in the lakes of Teijo National Park, with friend Henna. With Henna already 2 fish to the good, Ville has found a large rock which is attached to the shoreline by a pontoon. Before heading out onto it, he targets the area from the shore as he thinks a big Rainbow Trout may be lurking around it in the deeper water. After getting a couple of follows, and now knowing the fish are definitely here, he changes lure and confidently tries again. He moves out to the rock and quickly hooks up using his bright orange Crankbait but the fish slips the hook mid fight. Another lost fish follows, so Ville once again changes the lure to try and avoid any more losses and it proves the right decision as he finally lands a bright coloured Rainbow Trout on a spinner bait. With a camp kitchen erected, Ville and Henna are going to cook up their catch using two different methods, with one fish stuffed with herbs and baked in newspaper on the campfire and the other filleted and pan fried. It s the perfect way to end a successful day's fishing in the Teijo National Park.

Des arrives at the Palm Tree Lagoon resort on his first trip to Thailand for a weeks fishing, hoping that he is going to be pulled all around the lake by some of the monster fish lurking in its depths, top of his wish list is an Arapaima, these fantastic prehistoric looking fish can grow to over 500lbs. The fishery was bought by Englishman Tim Webb in 2008, he's continually trying to improve the number and variety of fish on offer, it currently holds 100 different freshwater species, 14 of them to over 100lbs. Des's guide Benchawan baits up his three rods, one with very smelly fish guts, the second with a chicken neck. Both fished in mid water on 80lb braid with an 80lb heavy nylon leader. The third uses pop up boilies from a method feeder in which she puts a sticky mixture of brown rice and bread crumb. His first bite is a Big Headed Carp quickly followed by a Catfish Shark, both weighing in at around 40lbs, but mere tiddlers here. Highlights that follow are a lovely Siamese Carp, a Redtail Catfish and a gigantic Mekong catfish but quite honestly the variety of species that Des catches is amazing, most of them new to him, but his trip of a lifetime is completed when he lands an Arapaima at over 300lbs.

Mika heads out on on Big Saimaa Lake at Palvainniemi today fishing for Perch. He hasnt fished here for a while due to the recent strong Northerly winds but today is calm so he has high hopes. This lake is deep and he expects the fish to be at 6-8 metres but will be searching until he finds the right depth. With a high population of Vendace here, he's using lures that imitate their colours with much brighter lures at depth. Mika starts by trolling, using weights and a deepener device to get to the perfect depth. Its a slow start with just one small Perch for the pot so Mika heads for some protruding rocks in the middle of the lake, moors up and tries throwing some spinners. He catches another small one before heading to shore to make dinner. He's planning to pan fry them, so firstly part boils some potatoes before pan frying them in butter. Next he rolls the fish in a rye flour and salt mix before frying with the potatoes. Its a simple dish but tastes all the better outside in the Finnish evening sun.

Paste is one of the most popular baits on commercial fisheries and the best way to fish it is on the pole. However, fishing paste can be as easy or as complicated as you want to make it and in this film Alex Bones shows you the simple route to success. With nothing more than a bag of pellets and half a bag of groundbait, Alex demonstrates paste fishing made easy on the Thames Pool on Phase Three at Makins Fishery. It's a typical Snake Lake that contains a good head of carp and Alex explains the best areas of the swim to target, how to prepare the paste, rigs and the feeding techniques required to catch more fish on this deadly bait.

Today Mika going to cook Bulgogi, a Korean dish that is normally made with beef but also works well with lake fish. He's trolling on Lake Saimaa and starts things off with a nice Perch. This is quickly followed by a decent sized Pike which gives a good fight on his light tackle. Mika heads to shore with his catch and gets ready to cook up his feast. He firstly makes a marinade of chopped leeks, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and brown sugar before carefully filetting his two fish. He cuts the fish into strips and then adds them to his marinade to take on the Korean style flavours. Finally he adds the mixture to a hot frying pan and cooks it thoroughly before serving with some boiled rice.

Mika is back on Big Saimaa Lake and finds a deep dropoff on his sonar so decides to anchor up and do some vertical jigging. He catches a small Pike to start at around 9m down. With no other action here, he moves to a spot he's previously marked, a 10m trench where he quickly hooks and lands a nice Zander. He checks the Zander meets the 42cm minimum size limit before despatching it and planning his Zander Pesto Pasta evening meal. Returning to the shore he boils some water and gets some spaghetti on and whilst that's cooking he shows us how to filet a Zander. He then fries the whole filets in butter. After turning the filets over, Mika smears a generous spoonful of Pesto over each one before mixing the mixture with his cooked spaghetti. As the sun sets, Mika is pretty happy with his bankside meal.

Pike Curry
22:00 
Mika is lake fishing again and heads out on his boat looking for some nice Perch or Zander using jig head soft plastics. After a slow start, Mika finds some deeper water around 5m deep and sees some fish activity on the sonar. The Perch aren't playing ball but Mika does hook into a strong Pike which gives him a tough fight on his lightweight Perch outfit. Mika then heads to shore and shows us how to fillet the Pike before taking it to his lodge kitchen. First, Mika cooks some curry paste in hot oil before adding the Pike strips and filets. Whilst the fish cooks through, Mika adds some chopped red pepper plus some leek rings, garlic and fresh chillies. Finally, he adds some coconut milk and some green beans before simmering for a few more minutes. Et voila, Pike Curry is served, who would have thought.

Pike Cutlets
21:19 
Mika is out trolling on the Big Saimaa Lake, looking for Zander or Pike. He starts by catching a small Pike which he duly releases, before something bigger bends over his rod and puts up a good fight on his light tackle. Its no monster but Mika thinks it will make a good meal so he keeps it for the pot. Returning to his kitchen, Mike skins and filets the Pike before cutting into strips which then puts through a mincer. He then adds 2 eggs, breadcrumbs and some curry powder which he kneads together and then forms into the cutlets. Next Mika frys the cutlets in butter and olive oil until golden brown, before removing them. As final step, Mika heats some teryaki sance in his pan and glazes the cutlets in it. Voila, the strong Pike flavour is masked and Mika enjoys his Oriental Pike Cutlets.

In this episode host Wade Middleton and some of his pro bass angler friends demonstrate how important it is to correctly position your boat for successful Bass fishing. All too often they see 'good' anglers come unstuck when they lose control of their boat as they start to cast. Being too close to a target can result in over-casting with the inevitable snags and hook ups. Allowing the boat to turn means you're constantly having to change your position on the boat, or moving away from the target zone makes it much harder to reach the fish. There is general consensus that a Power-Pole is the most important piece of equipment, when it comes to slow, controlled manoeuvring in shallow water and there are plenty of tips here on how to make the most of it. In deeper water the boat electronics become invaluable, so Wade and the team take time to demonstrate how best to set these up. To watch Position Your Boat for Bass now, just login or join

Most anglers hate being cooped up over the winter months and Clark Wendlandt is no different, he can't wait to get out and do a bit of Pre-Spawn Bass Fishing in early Spring. Here he gives tips and advice on how to make the most of the chance to catch some big Bass. Use your electronics, the Bass will tend to hold up on the edge of a grass bed before they spawn, so find the edges and use a sinking bait that will get down to the fish. Make sure the bait has plenty of action, the Bass are in an aggressive mood, so make it easy for them to see and attack your lure. Be prepared to change tactics, as always Clark comes armed with a load of pre-rigged rods so he can easily swap when something isn't working, he's got plenty of tips on which lure to use with which which rod and reel for a whole host of conditions.

Host and outdoorsman, Mika Lahikainen kicks off the series with a Perch fishing trip on Lake Saimaa, the largest freshwater lake in Finland and 4th largest in Europe. After setting out in his boat, he finds a deep 6m hole on the sonar, and starts fishing with a vertical jig, hoping to find a big Perch or Zander that hunt around these kind of features. With little initial interest he changes tactics to a spoon, which is often a reliable Perch catcher, and drifts along the reed lined shoreline making casts into the edge. After chopping and changing lures a few more times, Mika is finally rewarded with a small Perch which he keeps for a 'Rantakala', a traditional Finnish fish stew, before he then lands a larger 1/2 kilo fish. After catching a few more Perch, Mika heads to the shore to cook his Rantakala over an open fire. After gutting and preparing the fish, he drops them into some boiling water, before adding potatoes, carrots, onion, bay leaves, dill, salt and pepper to the one pot stew. As the sun sets, Mika settles down by the lake shore and enjoys his Rantakala whilst reflecting on a tricky day's fishing. This show is presented in Finnish with English subtitles

Ville heads to a river near the town of Kisko, in South West Finland and the target species today is Perch with the chance of Zander too. Ville starts with a 5g  2 Tone Jig Head and he prefers Citrus and Red colours for Perch here. He quickly catches a small Perch and knowing that Perch often shoal at this time of year he gets the Jig into the same spot hoping for a bigger one. Unfortunately that's al he finds here so moves downstream to another larger pool. It certainly looks fishy and he gets some instant reactions before landing another smallish Perch. The weather is still very cold for early May and Ville isn't convinced the fish are here in numbers yet so decides to switch location and heads to the lake downstream and into his boat with friend, Henna.

In this the first episode of a new series, host Wade Middleton has made his way over into East Texas, to head out on to the Sam Rayburn Reservoir in search of pre-spawn Bass. It's early Spring, the weather is cold and wet and he only gets an hour or so out on the water, but explains that these low pressure conditions can often be the best for Bass fishing and shows how to make the most of them. First up he stresses how important it is to have good waterproof gear to keep yourself warm and dry. Use your electronics, by finding water just a couple of degrees warmer you will find active hungry fish and by choosing the right bait will have success, here he's using a Spro Aruku Shad to great effect. The next day, the weather has completely changed, clear blue skies, bright sunshine and higher pressure, so he switches tactics. To provoke what he assumes will be more lethargic fish he likes to use a suspending jerkbait, just throw it out, twitch it down and leave it in the strike zone and waiting for them to hit it. He also talks you through rod, reel and line selection to use with these and although this isn't his favourite form of Bass fishing, it certainly works in conditions like these. The Sam Rayburn Reservoir is one of the best Bass fishing lakes in the USA and Wade certainly makes the most of it, as always his tips and advice are well put and easy to follow.

Mike D is in Sarasota, Florida pond fishing with his twin sister Diana and for a change Mike is the expert. They haven't fished together since they were kids but Diana has a likely looking pond right in her back garden and Mike is convinced he can get her into some bass here. Mike first opts for a topwater lure and it isn't long before Diana is landing her first fish for 34 years. He then switches to a soft plastic worm which bass find irresistible and shows Diana how to fish it effectively. The fish aren't big but they are plentiful and coming in thick and fast for the twins and there's little doubt that Mike's Sarasota pond fishing session with his sister has been a resounding success.

Ville is heading to Sarkisalo, which is well known for its excellent Pike fishing, and he's accompanied by friend and pro guide, Pasi. Its pre spawning time and the Pike will be spread out so they find a nice bay with a depth of about 3m and start to target the reed lined shore. Ville gets a couple of hits which don't stick so rests the Pike a little before having another go. Ville discusses the importance of ringing the changes when it comes to lure colours before they decide to move locations. A tough day ends with little reward but still an enjoyable time to be had with two good friends. Its now early summer and Ville returns to the lake on his own and with water levels higher than before, and a warmer south westerly wind, he's hopeful for a better day. The Pike have now largely finished spawning and he finds a nice bay and starts fishing in shallow water. After a couple of early misses, Ville soon gets a fish, not big but certainly welcome and is quickly followed by a slightly bigger Pike from the same spot. Another fish soon comes and Ville has kicked off the summer Pike fishing season in style.

Des Taylor kicks off a new fishing series with a return trip to his favourite river, the Severn in search of some specimen Barbel. After prebaiting, Des talks us through his swim choice and the features that provide the Barbel here such a good habitat, before going into detail about his rod, reel and preferred rig set up. After casting his baits into a snaggy area on the far bank, Des sits back and waits and it isn't long before he's rewarded with a cracking 5lb Chub which although not the intended species is very welcome nonetheless. As the rain starts, Des gets into his first Barbel and although it isn't huge, it puts a up a great fight. In a break from the action, Des talks us through his special groundbait mix which he says has helped him bank more than 1600 fish in the past 5 years. The swim goes quiet for a while and Des notices big Pike loitering around so decides to pull the rods out and 'repair' the swim with some more groundbaiting. After giving the swim a good rest, Des is soon back into fish again, completing a brilliant session on the River Severn with a lump of a Barbel .

Mike joins up with Nick Petrou as they go fishing for Spring Smallmouth Bass on Canadarado Lake in New York State. Nick orginally appeared on the show when he was just 14 yrs old and helped Mike catch his first Smallmouth Bass in Central Park, New York. Several years later and about to graduate from college with a Fisheries and Aquaculture Qualification, Nick really knows his stuff when it comes to Smallmouth and is hoping to bring some of that scientific prowess to the table today. The Bass will be spawning in a few weeks so as Nick explains, will be putting on weight in preparation so its a great time to get out there. By analysing the water temperature and depth, Nick puts them on a spot where he thinks the fish will be staging before they move into the shallows to spawn.  Using swimbaits and jerkbaits it isn't long before the pair get into some chunky Smallmouth Bass on Canadarado Lake.

Meet Ville Toivonen, an expert professional angler from Finland and in this opening episode, Ville is spinning for Pike in Teijo National park in South est Finland. Its a warm sunny day in April, conditions look good and the Pike haven't started spawning yet. Ville has 3 or 4 areas of the lake that he wants to concentrate on and firstly takes a moment to talk us through his tackle and the lures he'll be using. Getting the right colour combinations is crucial for success and Ville shows us what he likes with Wobblers and Jigs at this time of year. Ville drives a couple of kilometres from the pontoon and finds a bay where a small river enters the lake, which he knows is shallow and where the Pike like to hold up before spawning time. Starting in the mouth of the bay, he sees several fish on the Sonar, so drops the electric motor and starts fishing. With no luck here, Ville moves to a channel between two islands which he's confident will hold Pike and starts fishing with a Rapala Fire Tiger lure. He gets a hit straight away which drops off unfortunately but his confidence is up and he soon lands his first fish of the day, a small but brightly marked Pike. Moving to another likely area, he starts fishing with a Wobbler in slightly coloured water but soon changes to the Fire Tiger wwith instant results and another nice Pike. As the sun sets, Ville reflects on a decent day on the water where moving locations was the key to success.

Picking up from the previous episode, Ville heads out on the lake with friend, Henna in search of some Springtime Perch. The water is a little murky especially around the river mouth so he decides to fish a few kilometres south at Kokkila where he knows the water is clear. Ville explains that in the Spring, prior to spawning, the Perch are less voracious feeders than in Autumn as they prepare for winter, so action is likely to be sporadic. However, there is a very good chance of catching a bigger than usual fish. Ville anchors the boat on a soft muddy bottom around 6m deep and they cast Jigheads towards the shore into around 3m of water and it isn't long before he has a nice Perch on his silver jig. Another fish follows but sport soon dries up and the big ones have eluded them, so Ville marks the spot on his fishfinder and looks for a new mark. The next spot Ville tries lies behind an island and here in around 15m of water is a shipwreck that Ville knows can fish very well. With no immediate success, they both change lure colours and Henna then Ville suddenly catch fish showing just how important it is to keep ringing the changes.

Its mid summer and Ville and Henna are fishing on the Kiskojoki River for Pike and Zander and Ville is hopeful of some sizable fish. The river is wide here but he knows that fish will only be found in a few locations that they will concentrate on. Seeing fish on the sonar, they start fishing jigs, and as Ville vertical jigs, Henna casts her jig out across the river. Henna strikes first with a small but perfectly formed Zander and gets them off to a good start. As night falls, Ville heads down river on his own looking for some deep holes that the Zander hold in as they migrate down river towards the lake. At his first hole, he uses a brightly coloured fluorescent jig and gets a few early hits that don't stick before landing his first Zander of the night. It isn't long before another Zander is boated which is soon followed by another as Ville continues to take advantage of the conditions.

Host Wade Middleton and his team of pro anglers have plenty of advice to offer when it comes to Targeting Bass on Boat Docks. Most good fishing lakes around the States will have any number of boat docks that come in all shapes and sizes, from the small fixed jetties in shallow water to the large floating marinas but they all have one thing in common, they are great places to find Bass. But when you are presented with so much choice how do you decide which one to fish? The general consensus is to look for something that's a bit different, one that's on its own or sticks out into the lake a bit further than the rest or has strange features such as cables or poles attached to it. Wade is out on a breezy, overcast day so decides to fish aggressively with a jerkbait. Clark Wendlandt likes using a skipping jig as he can cast it right up underneath the dock to where the larger fish are holding up. They're both catching big Bass proving that the theory works.

Ville takes a trip to Teijo National Park in Lohenrengras to fish 4 artificial ponds which hold Trout, Salmon and Whitefish. He has two preferred outfits, a light spinning rod and a bait rod with a float and paste for bait. He starts with the float rod and some brightly coloured paste set around 2ft from the float. After placing his rod in a rod rest he attaches a small bell to the end of the rod so he can hear any bites too. He starts with the spinning rod too and covers the water with a small crank bait hopeful that the Rainbow Trout will be high in the water. Ville's friend Henna shows up and she's keen to learn how to fish for Rainbow Trout with a spinning rod so Ville gives her some useful tips. They see several fish move, but with no fish on the bank, they decide to move locations and at the same time change to some darker coloured lures.  Henna is excited to hook into her first ever Rainbow Trout and even happier when Ville slips the net under it. It isn't long before she makes it two, and  a very successful first ever Trout fishing trip.

Ville is in the Teijo National Park, in South West Finland and today, he's fishing for trout in the fast flowing rapids that run through the middle of the park. Fishing is usually prohibited here but Ville has special permission to fish and will start near the bottom of the rapids for Sea Trout as they enter from the sea. There are also native Brown Trout, Perch and Vimba here and Ville is optimistic of success. Casting his lure upstream in the heavy flow, he gets an early hook up but the trout doesn't stick this time. But soon after, he hooks another fish and lands a bright coloured Vimba. Moving upstream next to an old mill, Ville targets some slack water at the top of a fast run where fish may lay up but despite one missed pull, he can't locate more fish. As eveningapproaches, Ville finds some slower water and hits into a big trout but it slips the hook before Ville manages another Vimba. The day ends with no more fish but Ville has tomorrow on the rapids so there's time to make amends. An early start and a change of lures, Ville uses a silver Mepps spinner and gets the day off to a great start with a stunning Sea Trout.

In this episode of Fins and Skins host Henry Waszczuk is taking on 2007 Bassmaster Champion, Boyd Duckett in a bass fishing and golf challenge in Texas. Boyd with 4 major professional Bass fishing titles and over $1.7m in career earnings, is also a low handicap golfer so Henry is going to have his work cut out to win this one. They'll be fishing on Lake Amistad, in Del Rio, a large lake on the Mexican border and a renowned Largemouth Bass hotspot. The rules are pretty simple, 1 point for each Bass and the guy with the biggest Bass has control of the electric motor on the front of the boat and first cast. Points are then converted to strokes from the gross score. Out on the water, and its Henry who strikes first with a cracking 7lb Largemouth Bass...what a start! Boyd takes some time out to talk about swimbaits, how to fish them correctly and why they are so irresistible to Bass. Back to the action and Boyd is soon into a healthy lead but Henry keeps pegging him back and this match is closer than we'd think. But as we go into the golf match, Boyd does have a lead and Henry is going to have to play the round of his life to pull this one out of the bag. To watch just login or join

They're on East Twin Lake, Connecticut, but the conditions aren't great, a warn front has moved in bringing ominous, dark clouds. Nick would prefer a bit of sunshine as it groups the Bass into the shade, so he's not surprised when the only things they catch are a couple of Rockys and a Pickerel. When the latter throws up on the deck before being released, Nick decides it might be a good idea to match the colour of their rubber lures to the regurgitated crawfish on view, thinking that the Bass might be feeding on these too. But with not a lot happening the two are left to ruminate on why and when the Bass turn on... or not. And of course, eventually they do, enabling the guys to enjoy a nice bag of fish.

Mike D heads north for a day out on Lake Eerie with Noel 'No' Good, a local bass fishing specialist. Unfortunately Noel makes the huge mistake of promising Mike that they will catch lots of big Bass, invoking the Curse of Lunkerville. They take the boat out over some spawning flats in about 18' of water. Noel starts fishing on the bottom with a drop shot rig. But sure enough the curse is working and the only fish they see all morning is a small Goby. To rub salt in the wound, Mike's producer Shannon is in the camera boat 50 metres away with Noel's father Larry and they are catching a bundle of very nice looking Smallmouth Bass with one at 4.6lbs. Noel decides to move location in an attempt to break the curse and luckily for him it works, but for Mike.....his day is redeemed by catching the largest fish, not one of Lake Eerie's famed Smallies but a cursed Sheepshead.

Host Clark Wendlandt maintains that topwater must be everyone's favourite way of Bass fishing. The excitement of the water exploding as the Bass hits your bait can not be matched. He's also certain that some big fish can be caught this way. He talks us through his rod, reel and line selection, how to get the best combination for the distance he is casting and the type of lure he is using. He's fishing on Lake LBJ, post spawn in lovely clear water and has some early success with a popper, then switches to a popping perch bait to skip it in under some of the boat docks and nabs a nice 4.5 pounder. Other baits he uses with great success are a sexy dog junior walking bait and a frog lure.

It's early January and Des is Pike fishing on one of his favourite lakes at Weston Park in Shropshire. Des arrives early to find the lake blanketed in mist, and as the sun breaks, he reflects on what a perfect winter Pike fishing day he's blessed to be out in. Des starts off by showing us how he puts together his ledgering rig and how he likes to hook up the Smelt and Pollan dead baits he prefers to use on lakes like this. After casting out the dead bait, Des shows us the importance of being ready to deal with a Pike once landed, with an unhooking mat, long pliers, cutters and water all essential items that should be ready and to hand. With no early action on the ledger, Des notices some Pike working near the surface, so decides to put a float rod out to target them and try and get a bite. The tactic pays off and Des is soon into a feisty Pike which he duly lands and demonstrates how easy it is to unhook. It's not long before the ledger rod starts beeping and Des is into a strong double figure Pike to end the session on Weston Park Lake.

Host Clark Wendlandt has plenty of tips and advice on Which Bass Fishing Bait to use in any situation. First up is his Carolina rig, not the sexiest of baits but very useful when fishing big flat bottomed lakes or flat hard areas at the edges of a grass bed. Next is a Tube bait where he mounts the hook just showing through the surface of the rubber, this he uses in grass beds where the Bass will be a bit finicky. In pre-spawn he likes to fish lakes with a lot of boat docks, the big Bass will hole up under or around these and the best bait to tempt them out is a skipping jig, which is very versatile and can be cast into various awkward positions. For fast, power fishing he likes to use a square billed crank bait, its irregular movement through the water makes it irresistible to the Bass. There are loads more options in Clark's bait box that get a mention and he also shows how to use a pole lure retriever when your favourite bait has got hung and you must get it back.
