Video transcript: 

Alex:
It's so small. Look. Look at the little guy. Look at it. Multi-species unboxing.

Alex:
What's up, guys? Welcome back to the Monsterbass channel. My name is Alex, and I'm Oklahoma's Worst Angler on YouTube. And obviously, as you can tell by the title, I am unboxing the multi-species box for Monsterbass for this month. Now, primarily I am a bass fisherman. I'm a bass fisherman by trade, profession, preference, whatever it may be. But with that being said, I just love to fish. I love to fish. I grew up catching bluegill, perch, whatever you want to call them. Love catching crappie. I actually just had a killer crappie trip just recently.

Alex:
It's like taking candy from a baby, a big slab-daddy baby. Shoot. Look at this guy.

Alex:
That video's going to be coming out on my channel here pretty soon, and had an absolute blast. So I got to do, or I got my hands on the multi-species box for March. And I get to do this unboxing for you guys and show you guys how I rig it, how I would fish them, and again, just show you everything that's in here and preferably the kind of setups that I would normally fish this stuff on. And yeah, let's get into it.

Alex:
So, first thing we've got in there, we've got the Steelshad spinner bait. Now this being all red, springtime coming up, I mean, these fish are already keying in on red. They've got the red lips. They're keying in on red. Now, the thing about a spinner bait, this will catch multi-species, 100%. I have landed some big bluegill on spinner baits before, and absolutely love it.

Alex:
You just can't beat a good spinner bait, especially coming up, like I said, pre-spawn, springtime, snow's melting off, water's dirtier, red blades, not just a kicker blade, but both painted red blades. This thing is going to get bit. So, good to see a Steelshad spinner bait in there, again, in all red.

Alex:
Then we got the B8LAB Fyre Shad. Now, this is in a perch profile or perch pattern right here, but the Fyre Shad is kind of interesting. This is a, it's kind of a hybrid, in a sense, to where you can work it somewhat like a jerkbait or work it somewhat like a square bill or an actual crankbait. I'm going to try and grab this out of here without sticking myself with a hook. I know, I think Burley just stuck himself with a hook doing his unboxing. Well, as many times as if I stuck myself with hooks, I'd rather not do it again.

Alex:
But, see the profile on this guy right here. This is, like I said, you can twitch, you can rip it. You can straight retrieve it. Awesome. Little square bill slash jerkbait profile bait from B8LABs. This thing will get bit. And then we've got the Mustad skatter shad bladed jig. Okay? The Mustad skatter shad bladed jig, this is something that we've got a trailer coming in this box that can work in multiple ways. And that is the Big Bite Baits, twin-tail skirted grub, right? Double-tail skirted grub is what it's called. The double-tail skirted grub.

Alex:
Now, this is what I was talking about with this being a trailer that you can put onto the skatter shad. And what I mean by that is what I would do is I would cut off or just bite off this section right here. Bite the skirt part off of this, and then use the twin-tail grub tails as your trailer on that skatter shad. That right there, being the bluegill pattern in the skatter shad, and then having that lemon pepper or that amber kind of color, that is a great bluegill color imitator to me, so that's how I'm going to use that.

Alex:
Now, like I said, with pre-spawn, and in some areas of the United States, we've got fish that are on beds already. What I'm going to do here is I'm actually going to cut off the twin-tail grub. I'm going to cut that off, bite that off, get rid of that. And I'm going to use just this right here. So this is very similar to the Ika from Yamamoto fishing. And this is a great bed fishing bait, absolutely great bed fishing bait. Texas rig that to where you're having your hook point come up the top right here. You want this to kind of be sitting on the bed like that. That's how you want that.

Alex:
So, that's what I love about this bait in particular is the versatility that Big Bite Baits gives you with this bait. I mean, two different ones. You can rig it as standalone, but me personally, I'm going to use the twin-tail for a bladed jig trailer. And I'm going to use a skirt part for bed fishing or as a Neko rig of sort, Texas rig, not really a wacky rig.

Alex:
So those are kind of the bass baits in my mind that are in this box. And with all of these, I'm going to throw them on a medium, heavy power rod. I'm going to throw them on a medium, heavy power rod, probably 12 to 15-pound Fluro. That's what I'm going to be shooting for. And a seven-three gear ratio, reel. That's what I would do. That's what I would recommend. So you go out with one combo right there to target the heavier baits, heavier tackle. You've got that one combo that is going to be able to handle the B8LAB, the Fyre Shad, the Steelshad spinner bait, the Mustad skatter shad, the bladed jig, and then the Big Bite Baits, whether it be Texas rig, Neko rig, as a trailer, whatever it may be.

Alex:
So now we're going to get into the teeny, tiny little micro stuff. Micro stuff to me. Now, I'm not a nice fisherman. I don't throw many light baits. As you can tell, I like heavier stuff. But like I said, I love fishing. I love catching, and that little crappie bite that I got on the other day, I just couldn't stop fishing for it. I absolutely loved it.

Alex:
So we've got the Big Bite Baits, two-and-a-half-inch, kamikaze swim-on. Little baby, little baby swim-on. So the swim-on is an absolute great bladed jig trailer, but now we've got the baby version. This baby version right here, this is something that I'm going to personally put on and use with the Road Runner Go Go Runner. This is a one-16th-ounce underpin from Road Runner. One-16th, one-16th-ounce.

Alex:
So I'm probably going to use that white trailer as much as I possibly can, but then get rid of that. And then I'm going to use the Big Bite Baits baby swim-on as the trailer for this guy right here. That's what I'm going to do. That's what I would recommend to you guys. Now, the next baits that we've got in there, we've got some Mr. Crappie, one and three-quarter-ounce crappie thunder jigs. One-and-three-quarter-inch, not ounce. See, I'm used to speaking ounces, not inches, but one-and-three-quarter-inch Mr. Crappie, and this guy right here is going to pair up perfectly with the Mizmo one-32nd-ounce jig heads, one-32nd-ounce jig heads. How I'm going to rig the Mr. Crappie is I'm going to rig it just like this right here. Straight Texas rig, put that shank all the way through the body, right there, hook coming out by the skirts.

Alex:
And this is how I'm going to do that. Now, how to fish this vertical jig. You've got that great 90-degree line tie on those Mizmo baits, on that jig head. So this is something that you can easily just vertical fish. And whether that be vertical fishing it, jigging it quickly, letting it fall or holding it still. I don't know what it is about crappie, but they will just sit there for forever and just look at something. And if you move it too fast, sometimes they'll leave. But if you just have enough patience to sit there and just wait, they'll just suck that right in. You've got to have the right gear for these bites and for these fish to really feel them.

Alex:
Now, if I'm throwing a one-32nd-ounce head with this little, itty-bitty Mr. Crappie, as well as the Mizmo little tube right here, okay? One-and-a-half-inch Mizmo tube. This is the other bait that you're getting in there, right there. We've got that on that little one-32nd-ounce Mizmo head. What I'm going to be doing with these guys, the tackle that I'm going to be throwing it on, me personally, whether it be a light action or even an ultra light, I think a medium-light, medium-light might be a little bit heavy, especially considering the weight of this jig. That might be just a little too light. So I would say a light or an ultra-light spinning rod. If you're into the BFS stuff the finesse gear, even then, I don't know anything about that stuff. So I'm sticking with spinning gear. That's me, personally. I'm always going to be sticking with spinning gear.

Alex:
But like I said, vertical fishing is what I'm going to be doing with this one. However, going back to the bass and going back to bed fishing, and talking about bluegill and their beds, this is a bait very much so like the Big Bite Baits, double-skirted grub, very similar. Now this is something that I think would be kind of a cool [tape 00:10:00] and to go throw onto a bed, especially with it being a one-32nd-ounce. This is a very small profile. This is not going to be intrusive whatsoever when it hits the water, and you've got a fish on a bed, and you're trying to target that fish on a bed. This is something that I want to have just sitting on that bed, and give them very light, little, light, little rod twitches, just enough to get those skirts kind of moving a little bit and irritate that fish, that it's on that bed, that is trying to protect their bed and protect where they're going to spawn at.

Alex:
So as far as the ultra-light goes, the ultra-light, I'm talking six-pound test, six-pound Fluro. You can run the braid-to-leader if you want to do that. I'm personally a braid-to-leader kind of guy. That's what I love to do, but completely personal preference, whatever you're comfortable with, but light-action to medium-light, 1,000 to even a 500-size reel. You don't need much. You need something that is light and extremely sensitive to detect those bites on these guys right here.

Alex:
And that is the same thing with that little Big Bite Baits baby swim-on, on that Go Go runner. Light tackle, very light tackle. As far as brands, go with what your personal preference is. But this is freaking cool for me. I'm excited. I want to go out, and I want to fish all this stuff. And I want to put together a video for you guys over on my channel, doing a slam, if you will, or just going out and using just this micro stuff and taking the ultra-light out there.

Alex:
So, if you guys want to see that, hop over to my channel, Oklahoma's Worst Angler. There's a link down in the description. Hop over there. Let me know down there on my videos if you guys want to see that. It's kind of early in the morning. Words are hard. I'm getting there. Okay? I'm waking up, but right now I'm going to put this stuff away. I'm going to pack up, because tomorrow I'm going fishing and pretty freaking stoked. And I hope you guys have a great weekend. Go out and smash them. Go out, catch you a monster bass. Catch a monster crappie. Catch a monster bluegill. Catch a monster perch. I don't know what you have in your region. I'm just saying what I have in my region. And that's what I'm going to go fishing for.

Alex:
So, thanks for watching, guys. I appreciate every single one of you. I'll see you guys next summer on the water.
