Growing Big Bass | Ranch Lake Fishing

2 Dhj 2019
67 793 Shikime

Continuing on our whitetail deer hunt, we gather up and head to the near by bass fishing lake to do some ranch management bass fishing. One of the keys to growing big bass in ponds and small lakes is to occasionally remove numbers of small bass or ad enough bait to supply all the fish with the necessary protein to advance to the next size class.

It is pertinent to hold a good size of the asset before the year runs out and the most result i have gotten is trading using the signals provided by Ben cesaro, a professional when it comes to analyzing, strategist and trading generally..

  • Hey there LFG, a fellow Texan native family here, Grew up fishing Lake Arrowhead around Wichita Falls (great big cats if you ever feel inclined though some muddy water) with my Papaw -- Mom's Dad. One thing I've never been able to master is Turtles. I know hook size is a big part, but whenever I go fishing for cats in Texas I always end up with at least one snapping turtle or etc on the line. They are pretty much impossible to unhook without hurting yourself or the animal; neither of which I am a fan of. Any pro tips on how to minimize Texan' Turtles stealing your bait? I would imagine not using live-bait and only lures could help some -- but figured asking a pro couldn't hurt! Keep up what you do! P.S. -- You are a brave man saying you want a new rifle 'and' you'll probably have more kids in the same line. Best to check with the C.F.O. first... you know, the chief female officer... Go Texas!

  • My question is what scope do you have on there? That gun should shoot to 300 pretty accurately with that 18 inch barrel. Meaning should shoot at least a 3.5 inch group but no it’s not really meant for long distances.

  • Hey Justin ! You don't need to spend money on an electric fence. Just finish the sides and completely cover the top with chicken wire. You can sew the edges of the fence together, with a roll of wire, over the top. Good luck with your project. Can't wait to see you get your comments turned on. Emmy is just so adorable. Enjoy it as much as possible while you can. My two daughters are already grown. I loved those younger years when they were " Daddy's girl. " They grow up so fast. My favorite parts of LLF are watching Emmy play and say new words. You should get her a set of blocks. She really seems to like playing with those scraps. Or maybe Lincoln logs. I so much enjoy your videos. You guys are just so awesome. Truly blessed. I used to get irked when my daughter would tell me about people on utube being "famous". I get it now. You don't have to be a Hollywood movie star. And I also now know what it's like to truly care for and love someone you never met. Out of all the utubers I subscribe to, you guys are the only ones I feel that way about. Best wishes and happy holidays to you and your family. 🕊️🙏♥️🕊️🙏♥️🕊️🙏♥️

Swear this works and wish I had found this out before all the amoxicillin and ear tubes we put our kids through. Don't have to take my word for it either, do your own research, but I swear this works for man or beast (yes the dog's better off too)

  • I have a Winchester 30/30- pump action rifle. Yep- a pump action rifle- never seen another one- may be super common but, I've never seen any other than this one. Made in the late sixties or early seventies- my dad gave it to me and I really don't know where or when he got it- he died last year so I can't ask him. Jst got done restoring a single shot 22. mag Chuckster- if you're familiar with it- often used by target shooters it's a very accurate rifle when setup correctly and put in the proper hands. The ribbon pattern in the walnut used to make the stock and forearm piece is amazing. I got the gun for 15 bucks and it looks like a brand new chuster now- better really. All i had to do was refinish the barrel and stock/forearm piece- and put a trigger guard on it.

  • Dude, if you ever find yourself in North Alabama I have forty acres attached to the game reserve that's literally infested with white tail deer. We have the third most dense population of white tail in the northern hemisphere here, and I think they all decided to live on my forty acres. LOL- Seriously though, I wake every morning to a yard full, they're all around my house constantly- I can't grow anything, they cause millions if not billions in property damage stat wide every year- they got so bad we had to install fencing along all our runways at our airports cause they were causing planes to crash when landing and taking off sometimes. About three or four months ago I hit a twelve point buck with my new truck- about 5 am on my way to the lake and two crossed in front of me, I came to a complete stop- waited a few seconds- and as I start to go, boom! the third one, this huge buck- just runs right into my front right quarter panel and front bumper Broke his hip so the cops shot him and donated him to a local charity for meat, caused about 3000 dollars worth of damage to my truck though. Please come kill as many as you want- one catch- you have to kill one doe for every buck you take- I'll even give you free room and board. Or there are endless places to camp. I' killed so many I just don't hardly have it in me anymore- don't need or want the meat- I just donate them to local charities when I kill them. I take a few for dog food but, that's it. If I want meat I eat either fish or chicken, don't care for red meat. I like some pork but, only the white meat cuts- like tenderloin. Weird huh- no idea why it's just a personal preference. I even prefer chicken on pizza.

  • Since you are shooting a 180 grain bullet it’s not going to be on the target at 200. The 180 grain drops rediculously. Try a 150 grain instead.

  • While aging the meat might change the flavor, the real issue with the last doe was how long it took for the animal to die after being shot. When the deer dies quickly the animal's hormones dont have as much time to get pumped through the blood and the meat tends to stay more tender.

  • I bought the same rifle from one of my oldest friends and the rifle belonged to his father who had died in a accident when we were teenagers. The rifle had been setting in a closet for years and he sold it to me for 250 dollars. I had to replace the stock which was cracked and also the barrel which had a bulge at the spot where the gas exits the barrel to activate the slide, After spending over 1000 dollars to replace every thing and get it re blued plus a new scope and mounts. It had a 4 digit serial number that placed it's manufacturing date at June of 1962. @ years ago he was looking for a hunting rifle for his oldest son who just turned 16 and I sold it back to him for 500 so his son could have his Grandfather's rifle. 2 weeks after he bought it from me his son shot a 12 point monster and gave me some of the meat for helping him out.
