Lots of guys on the board have channels of their fishing trips. Those are the type videos I enjoy, real guys fishing just for the sake of going fishing. Most of the big channels are too much advertisements and too much guys trying to make a big production instead of just fishing for my taste.

Channels have started to pull in sponsors and a bit of cash so they're in a race to outdo each other for crazy stunts and gags while plugging the gear they're now advertising. It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. ;)

I don't really watch any but stumbled across Extreme Philly Fishing run by a young guy who's a real fish nut and loves catching as many species as he can, even micro fishing. His enthusiasm comes off as genuine and there's nothing at all "slick" about his videos, unlike the amateurs who quickly became "pros".

Good ones to start with: LakeForkGuy, BassFishingJersey, and 1Rod1ReelFishing. Pro tip: Avoid anything with "vlog" in the title if you're just looking for fishing stuff.
BassFishingJersey is an up-and-coming young guy who's very articulate and strikes me as being a real honest, down to earth dude who loves fishing.

You know it always amazes me that despite having over 400 videos on our YouTube channel, it's rarely mentioned in any list of channels to watch.  I would love to understand the reasons why.

Anyone willing to give their candid thoughts?

I'm probably going to be shunned for saying this - but I have to admit, every Bass Resource video I watched felt scripted.  I like how some of the You Tubers just wing it - go and fish...talk about what they are doing, while they are doing it - and discussing whatever happens. 

Also, I can't help but to get the feeling that most of the Bass Resource videos are filmed on private lakes that are stocked with bass...where it's super easy to catch the fish.  

Not to say that they are not informative - just my opinion on them.

If I were to recommend no-nonsense, informative how-to videos where you actually learn, it would be the ones from here. But right now the young guys/kids running around showing what they had for lunch and how they bought a spool of line at Walmart are the ones getting all the attention and because of that, they show up in the searches.

I like the videos, articles and forums on this site.

That is why I joined  and visit here almost daily. 

Always something new to learn or enjoy on B.R.

No shunning here.  I appreciate the feedback.

I can tell you all the videos I shoot are on public waters.  I don't have any access to private waters.  As a result, I have a TON of useless footage of me just casting and casting and casting.  I delete most of it.  And there are a lot of days I go out with the intent of knocking out a bunch of videos, but only get one or two done because the bite's off, or a major tournament has just sore-mouthed them all the day before.

I'm curious what gave you the impression I shot them on private lakes.  I would like to understand a little bit more about that.

Scripted....not so much, but rehearsed to a certain degree, yes. I got hammered on the "ums" "ahs" plus the "you ramble too much" comments on my early videos, so now I have an outline in my head of what I want to say, and run through it in my mind before turning the camera on.  But that's the extent of it.

My sight fishing video is probably the closest thing to the "just winging" it videos you describe because, frankly, that's exactly what I did. I had no plan when I got on the water that day.  Once I discovered the fish were shallow and roaming, I turned the camera on with a "let's see what happens" approach.

I appreciate the feedback.  This is helpful.

I'm not a big You Tube watcher myself, but i occasionally will catch a few by just doing a search.  I also have the Bass Resource videos constantly popping up in my news feeds on social media, I click the ones I haven't seen before and I'm interesting in checking out.  I rely on this sites videos for specific technique demonstrations and technical stuff, I go elsewhere for entertainment.  There is room for both in my view.

I like the BR videos when I need to learn or re-learn something. They are kinda in the type of format that has been done over and over on TV. I don't mind that but people want something new fast and flashy so the BR videos are overlooked in my opinion. Now eat a hot pocket and showcase your new drone and voila!  100k views!

Glenn, I think it's a generational thing. I like and appreciate the more formal, teaching aspects of your videos. You're trying to show how to do something, not put on a show. In many ways, and unfortunately, that's becoming an antiquated concept. Look at the really popular channels and it's fishing for the ADD crowd with quick edits, nonstop gags and hipster music. So to compare channels is really apples and oranges or even apples and washing machines - they're just from different worlds.

Glenn, love your videos but there just aren't many of them. I think all the above mentioned YouTubers post a new video about once a day. That really keeps their subscribers interested and checking their channel often. I'd love to see you "just wing it" more. I struggle with finding fish all the time and would like to see how you approach this throughout the seasons. Show what you tie on and why once you found the fish etc... real world stuff for us weekend anglers.

Hi Glenn - first of all - I'm glad you didn't take the criticism harshly - it wasn't meant to be.

Honestly, I think the only reason I thought that they were on private lakes is due to a couple of reasons:

1. In the few videos I watch, you never identify the body of water - leading me to think you don't want your viewers to know where it's at.  I personally like knowing the lakes that you guys are fishing on - helps me understand and relate to the weather and water conditions - and also try to relate to the fishing pressure on that certain lake.

2. There never seems to be any boat traffic or any traffic of any kind - just a small observation that lead me to believe it was on private waters.

 

I understand about you practicing your lines, I would be the same way - wouldn't want to be fumbling and bumbling around with words while trying to get my point across - when all I'm actually doing is sounding foolish.  

Again, we appreciate your instructional videos - and now that I know they aren't scripted - I will watch them a little more open minded-ly please keep up the good work.

Verizon decided I don’t need the Outdoor Ch or WFN anymore so I’ve been watching a lot of you tube videos on my Fire Stick.

I like the you tube videos from the JP Derose & Dave Mercer TV shows. They whittle the 30 mins show down to 5 mins cutting out of the crap. If you look past the product placement there’s some good info on technique.

 

When I’m missing Florida I like tuning into Darcizzle Offshore. I don’t do much saltwater fishing just like the show. :D

This is exactly why I was asking... Every time I search something I find that the top videos are mainly just advertisements or are way too "extreme".

The bass resource videos are usually the ones I'm watching.  I've literally learned so much since this winter when I stumbled upon this site.  Reading the forums and watching videos have helped me out a lot.  But sometimes I want to see something different like underwater videos kind of like the show "Hook and Look" for example.  It's crazy to see how your movements with the rod translate to the bait down below....  Nothing against the videos here I love em.

Well Glenn, since you asked for a candid response here goes, you could use a breath mint! Nothing personal! ;)

I follow MikeyBallz. He's in florida, his videos of Florida giants got me through winter, and my punch fishing has improved tremendously.
