Opening this season of The Hunt for Monster Bass, pro fishing champion Ott DeFoe explores the expansive Florida Everglades looking for trophy Largemouth. The everglades comprise 1.5 million acres of biodiverse, unkept swampland across the south coast. Though unfamiliar territory to our host, these waters have a real chance of producing a personal best, so Ott begins in the narrow canal formations nestled between the vegetation where Bass are known to hunt. After being plagued by an invasive exotic species running rampant in the area, Ott’s morning of fishing has left him with more questions than answers, so he decides to jump in the truck and explore. After a genius change of tackle, something big hits a spinnerbait between the Lily pads.
