We wanted to see this fish up close and personal, but were not sure how it could have the drama of a saltwater fish haunting white-sand flats. So, we spent a year looking around for the right place to start our odyssey.
(And yes, unlike Location X, we ARE going to publicly reveal our locations when we are done shooting).
And we are going to show you some trophys and new ways wecfound to catch them.
You'll see fly rod pros match skills with spin gear pros - and show why the next big thing in light tackle fishing is upon us: A fish that lies just out of sight and hits you every time like the first swing in a bar fight. We loved every minute of it.
Bass: The Movie begins with George Perry´s world-record bass in 1930´s rural Georgia. Then, journeys to mordern day to visit with pro anglers like Kevin VanDam, Ish Monroe and Mike Iaconelli. You´ll discover where the bass bug first caught them. The road trip then heads west. All the way west. California conventional rod pros join in a quest for trophy bass on the same boat with fly-rod pros, as they share secrets and a brand new look at the sport. Though California is home to the majority of bass-fishing´s world records, the reasons for its big fish, and how they´re caught, have been a mystery to many. Explore southern California´s clear waters and northern California´s fabled Delta region, with a band of characters now known as Team California. Their candid stories, and shared tactics however, are invaluable to anglers everywhhere.
The angler´s you´ll meet along the way as varied as the waters you´ll visit: Bass Elite Series anglers, lin-class world record holder Raymond Easley, fly-rod world-record holder Larry Kurosaki, Delta bass pro and guide Bobby Barrack, Delta fly-rod pro and guide Kevin Doran, SoCal guide and bass pro Mark Mitrany and one inveterate angler who loads up his truck and goes in search of time on the water with all of them: John Sherman.
