Ever wondered what it looks like when schools of giant fish start fighting over a lure? Do they really fight over who will eat it first? Let's go underwater and see! 

These largemouth bass are fighting over our jerkbaits to be the first one to bite! This wolfpack of fish is so crazy they'll bite over and over again! We had one bass nearly 7 lb bite 4 different times before getting hooked!

This isn't filmed in a bass pond either, these are real bass filmed from a boat during the most insane bite ever! 

We were very lucky to have the equipment to go underwater and film these bass striking lures over and over. This is probably the most insane underwater bass footage ever filmed with a GoPro so we hope you enjoy it! We even had bass crashing into and trying to eat the GoPro! 

What were the bass eating? Here is the equipment used...

Camera Used:

Bass are very predatory and when they begin to school up the jerkbait is a great lure to catch them. The key is the combination of sound and sharp movement. This triggers the bass' predatory nature and they lash out violently, even when they aren't hungry. 

Be sure and try a jerkbait on your next fishing trip! They're great for largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass and work throughout the year, even for pond bass fishing! 

If you don't know how to fish with a jerkbait watch this video we shot on how to work them:

Kevin VanDam would pay you for this jerk bait video. Hurry and contact him before Friday when the Bass Masters Classic kicks off!!! Go, Go, Go, as Kevin Cline said in "Dave".

How deep was this sinking jerk bait falling?

How do those fish not get hooked? Crazy but amazing to watch.

So you say she was almost 8 pounds but she wasn't but a few inches longer than a like a 6 inch jerkbait. No way their as big as you say.

Great footage! I'm currently re-reading "Knowing Bass: The Scientific Approach to Catching More Fish" by Keith A. Jones Ph.D. Dr. Jones speaks of 2 prey capturing styles: 1. Aggressive, where the Bass will "run over" its prey (almost certainly always with fast prey) and 2. A conservative style where the Bass will suction the prey (usually with slow prey)(that 1st strike was a suction style capture). These Bass were obviously stimulated by the action and sound of the lure and were aggressive. Did you happen to use any scent attractant? Bass are primarily visual hunters although they posses a greater sense of smell and taste. It was interesting to see that the Bass did not display associative learning, but continued the attack the lure even though it was not natural prey. So the hooks and hard body of the lure just did not negatively effect the Bass's aggressive, continued attacks. Also, it seems that the pressure from the surrounding Bass encouraged the aggressive behavior. So glad I found your channel!

69 people thought you were playing bass guitar underwater. I'd like to see that too but I think the jerkbait is a better technique.

The video would be much better without the bullshit commenting. Nobody needs that hyper inflated garbage.

Dwayne Mcguire
very welcome ,👍🎣🎣

I am not sure if this is something you guys would entertain, but have you guys ever thought of doing some tutorials on bass fishing in a smaller river instead of a lake/pond? you may already have a video of it that I just haven't seen it, but as for me I live on the Shenandoah River, north fork which is great bass fishing, but obviously very different patterns than you'd see in a lake. Idk just thinking it'd be so cool to see people who actually know what they're talking about such as yourselves fish a body of water like the Shenandoah or a smaller river and give tips for some of us who can't get to a lake or big pond regularly. anyways, great vid! subbing and looking forward to more!
Fish are enticed to a lure much the same way as cats are to a ball and string.
Ryan McGarry
awesome footage guys!
Tucker Outdoors
What jerkbait is that size and depth of bait please
Dwayne Mcguire

Dwayne Mcguire

Ryan Pellegrini
Best under water vid ive seen in a while. Great job guys. This is why i subbed a long time back. Great info. Im assuming you guys filed the hooks for video purposes, theres no way you are missing this many fish lol
Isaac Pelletier
I'm pretty sure that Bass Dork (a facebook page) just used a portion of this video in their advertisement for their new line of jerkbaits. Just wanted to bring it to your attention in case you weren't aware.

I searched insane bass drop and got this

Wow I'm just getting back to fishing what a great video I had no idea bass reacted so violently.
Cool vid. Just want to share two opinions: first off, fish have no headlock maneuver- if you feel it, set the hook your bait is in its mouth! waiting is waay overrated. Secondly, I noticed that most of the hits were head first- a definite sign or aggressive fish. When they eat like this you're doing it right!

Still dont understand how you have over 200k views on this and only 40k subs... I would consider doing some kind of subscriber giveaway. You guys are great! Keep it up!
Ralph Connell
Very interesting. Thanks. like others here, I'm amazed how a Bass can take a bait 3 times and not get hooked! In a strange way, made me feel better. Thought every time a Bass got a rack of treble hooks in its 'gob' was on the boat. Not so. Really helpful. Dankie.
Rick Hambric
anyone else notice they kept hitting the front 1/2 of the lure?
Bob Gargosh
Very cool. Thanks for sharing...learning lots and I'll be watching for lots more tips.
Richard Kropp
What kin of camera were you using?
Jay Pepin
Unbelievable. That's why you guys are the best in the biz! Sick job boys!!
Nails Wood
Your definition of violent needs to change. A fish trying to eat...not violent, ever.
Anthony Foust
Awesome idea, Assassins! Definitely illustrates what you need to be doing with the bait / lure, and their subsequent psychosis. You just gave away your "tricks" to help the rest of us without the cameras, et all, to film our lures underwater. I KNOW how I'm going to be working my cache of jerk baits - which have always taken a backseat , as I didn't have the confidence in what a frenzy they cause.......until watching these schools cine up just for that lure. A++++++
Reel Hazardous
That was crazy seeing how the Bass were feeding! Cool stuff!
Amazing ! Please make more!! Subscribed 🤓!
you guy are great! thanks for sharing your knowledge! very helpful for me

I totally agree with how fast you strike. I have some Barramundi fishing strikes that are lightning fast, in and out in a fraction of a second! Many people tell me I strike too fast, they have no idea. Also unbelievable that fish can eat so many times and not get hooked, but I see it all the time. Great video.
very cool video. thanks
You can actually turn off the red blinking light on GoPro cameras.
Jason Derifaj
They always hit the head.
Paul Davis
