Where to Look on Your Boat Dock for Zebra Mussels

Zebra Mussels will attach to any hard, solid substrate in lakes. In this video, you'll see how they colonize a boat dock. When inspecting docks, be sure to check the dock posts, especially the side that receives the most shade. Chains and cables used to anchor swim platforms are also magnets for zebra mussels.

Prettiest Underwater Video of Smallmouth Bass!

Smallmouth Bass are amazing fish and I wanted to show them in all their magnificence, in a very high quality underwater HD video.  I’ve looked at many videos of Smallmouth Bass and none of them truly convey the grace and beauty of this fish and the stunning splendor of their underwater habitat.  This is my video tribute to Smallmouth Bass.  I hope you enjoy it.

Video: Wolf-Packs of Big Bass Underwater

By autumn, some lakes have developed mats of filamentous algae on the lake floor. This tapestry provides cover for crayfish, sculpins and darters who can move around undetected.... they think.  During this time, bass (both largemouth and smallmouth) will form large schools, roaming the lake floor looking for the smallest movement that would give away the location of their prey. These "wolf packs", or pods of bass that hunt together are always on the move and patrol the same areas on a daily basis, almost like a milk run.  It's believed by tournament bass fisherman that September is a key time when wolf-packs form.  In this HD underwater video, you'll see how wolf-packs of bass hunt.  (Engbretson Underwater Video.)
