    I needed this

  2. Keith Bolton on March 14, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    I dont have a boat. I do all of my fishing on the bank. What is the best way to find grass cover, rocks, and timber that is in the water that you can’t see. Also, the best app to get to see the depth of the water.

  3. Brad Laughlin on March 14, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    What a well thought out video, thanks for all the helpful information!! Really enjoyed this, Tyler!

    Really like this video! Unique idea that teaches beginner fisherman well!

  10. Carter Henderson on March 15, 2021 at 12:04 am

    The opening line sounded like you were quoting The Connor Whisenant😂

  11. mark Hopkins on March 15, 2021 at 12:05 am

    One of the most informative and useful videos I have ever watched not just TRF but on YouTube. Thanks!!

  12. Philip Nguyen on March 15, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Great video! It will help a lot of anglers out!

  13. I Catch Tiny Fish on March 15, 2021 at 12:06 am

    quick question did you have a mentor?

  14. Gulb180 on March 15, 2021 at 12:06 am

    I know you don’t have em down in Texas, but do you have any tips on avoiding pike? I’m in northern IL and if I use anything besides finesse I just keep getting pike and I wanna shoot for the bigger bass with things like a glide bait or a 6XD but I keep getting pike. Also great video!

  15. Gabriel Felix Muñoz on March 15, 2021 at 12:07 am

    wealth of knowledge
    appreciate it

  16. Fi Dang Yang on March 15, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Structures are actually the landscape underneath the water like humps, creek channels, n ledges. Cover are actually the objects on top of the landscape like rock piles, brush piles, weeds, etc.

    Loving this super thorough series of masterclass vids.l

  19. South Georgia Bassin on March 15, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Great Video !!!! So many terms these days. Your channel is very educational and thanks for going over content that most people are not talking about. Like your rigging and fishing style techniques are very helpful. And your proposal video had me, my wife and youngest 15 year old daughter crying with a smile. LOL That was by far the best ever. Continue to keep it real and thanking God for our blessings.

    I enjoyed watching this. Good information Tyler. I always have been confused with terms like creek channels, ledges, points etc. All the lakes around me in Michigan seem to be natural and bowl shaped. I sometimes have a hard time finding "structure".

  22. Unsatisfyy on March 15, 2021 at 12:20 am

    If ur seeing this comment it has some likes yeah I got a like

  23. fersh water fishing on March 15, 2021 at 12:21 am

  24. Jackson Rigney on March 15, 2021 at 12:21 am

    This was hilarious 😂 But a great informative video as always. Tyler do you have a fan mail address?

  25. James Erickson on March 15, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Tyler with any chest rig go pro footage…you use 24, 30, or 60p?

    Also you should put more up on your music channel. Solid stuff man.

  26. Andrew Heath on March 15, 2021 at 12:22 am

  28. Ways Raasch on March 15, 2021 at 12:25 am

    I had one question that I didn’t her you mention. I love “hopping” a jig and it’s hands down one of my favorite ways to catch bass but what is the difference of “hopping” a jig or “stroking” a jig?

  29. Adam Desouky on March 15, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Love it

  30. Cole Quinn on March 15, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Hey Tyler Awesome video but what the heck dose getting on pad mean while driving a boat?

  31. Reginald Smith on March 15, 2021 at 12:28 am

    This is amazing. Thank you bro. Here in Birmingham, AL definitely learned a lot and I have some spots to go back and fish. I was afraid of loosing my lures fishing by fallen trees, now I know that the fish hang out there.

  32. Ethan R on March 15, 2021 at 12:29 am

    You deserve at least 5 million subs

  33. Darrell Medley on March 15, 2021 at 12:29 am

    This was awesome Tyler. Great information.

  34. 5.7.0 bassin on March 15, 2021 at 12:30 am

  35. Bass Fishing Addictions on March 15, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Sweet video, tons of information! It’s the kind of video newer anglers need but nobody’s ever taken the time to put it all in one lol

  36. MW Fishing and Outdoors on March 15, 2021 at 12:33 am

    You should do the Texas YouTube fishing challenge again

  37. Smoke Fumar on March 15, 2021 at 12:34 am

    Thanks SO MUCH for this!!! I needed help as I’m just now learning graphs!!! I’m in the middle of a jon boat build for my 2 boys now!! What is a good starter graph/fish finder for them! I just bought them the Minn Kota Edge, I would be learning graph too!!

  38. ICYAngler on March 15, 2021 at 12:35 am

    I’ll take a minute to interpret what the "dock guy" said… He said he put a cricket in water. He was amazed that an amphibian came up and ate it while he was laying down. What’s there to understand in fishing terminology?? easy. lol.

    sweet video as always brother!God bless!

  39. David Knight on March 15, 2021 at 12:38 am

    Wow! So many of my questions were answered. Thank you!!!

  40. Dragon on March 15, 2021 at 12:38 am

    I remember shore fishing in Texas about 4 or 5 years ago and this highschool kid was launching his boat alone around sunset. I asked if he was going bass fishing and he said he was just going to mark some laydowns for a tournament he had coming up. I was thinking, "you’re going to what the what?" That kid was Tyler launching off of Quinlan Park in Lake Austin!

  41. TylersReelFishing on March 15, 2021 at 12:40 am

    Since this video is so long, don’t forget to use the playbar on the video to choose which terms you want to learn about!

  44. Brayden Koon on March 15, 2021 at 12:45 am

    One of my favorite names is big mouth Billy bass

  45. Parker Nichols on March 15, 2021 at 12:46 am

    You are by far the most helpful youtube fisherman I’ve ever watched.

  46. C vlogs on March 15, 2021 at 12:47 am

    Is it me or does he look like Jon b and peric

  47. john Gill on March 15, 2021 at 12:47 am

  48. Sobi on March 15, 2021 at 12:47 am

    Lololol so true 😂👊🏻

  49. Alex Yon on March 15, 2021 at 12:48 am

    What lures do you recommend me at a lake in Southern Ontario Canada? I am fishing in June. In this lake there are weeds and there are rock at the bottom. The fish are all the types of bass. The forage is bluegill, craw fish and shad.

  50. SLEE The Rookie on March 15, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Some bad ass knowledge bro. Better than flukemaster. I learned soooo much in this video that I didn’t even know about.
