This is the page where you are able to find short videos where I discuss various aspects of fishing. It includes basic things such as knot tying and bait selection as well as more advanced topics such as how to fish certain rigs.

Bass Fishing Basics
This is more of a fishing basics, than a bass fishing basics video. I have a lot of friends who aren’t very familiar with fishing ask me questions when they are looking to take their kids out fishing. One of the best ways to get kids to have a fun time fishing is by catching Bluegill. Most people started fishing as a kid by targeting Bluegill and other pan fish. If you are not a fishing aficionado, hopefully this video will help you catch some fish.

Here is a clip of me showing off some of my breakdancing skills. For those of you who may not know, Michael Iaconelli is a professional bass fisherman who is known for his “crazy” antics. Part of which includes his ability to breakdance. He gets a lot of media attention for it. Only thing is, his dancing skills are mediocre. I can take him. Also, to those of you who knew me in my “former glory,” you’ll have to forgive me. I mostly just teach these days and don’t do as much of the actual dancing. However, considering that fact, I think I’m not too shabby for not practicing much anymore. And uh, don’t mind the semi-cheesy, non-copyrighted music in the video either.
