Topwater Fishing Tips From Alton Jones

July 27, 2011

Professional bass angler and 2008 Bassmaster Classic winner Alton Jones is one of the most-consistent anglers on the tournament trail, currently sitting in third in the Angler of the Year race with only one tournament left in the Elite Series. To be successful on the trail, an angler must be versatile and proficient in all fishing techniques. He may not be known for topwater fishing, but rest assured that Jones knows how and when to get the most out of his Spooks and Zell Pops.


Double Largemouth On Sunday

July 20, 2011

Norman Freebeck of Florence, Ala., considers the bone-colored Bomber Long A his secret weapon when fishing near the (undisclosed) dam along the Tennessee River, and the lure outperformed his expectations on Sunday, July 18, when a single cast netted not one but two chunky largemouth bass. Doubles (two fish on a single lure) aren’t completely unheard-of, but Norm’s double weighed almost 10 pounds.


The Spittin', Chuggin', Dog-Walking Pencil Popper

April 25, 2011

Only one lure sounds like the chugging, spitting, dog-walking Cotton Cordell Pencil Popper. That action and sound attracts stripers and big bass from long distances resulting in heart pounding vicious strikes; however, there is more to fishing a pencil popper than just casting it out and walking it. You have to know when to fish it and where. After you know when and where, you should fine-tune your presentation with size and color pattern to maximize your catch-rate.


All About Lake Guntersville

April 9, 2011

The Elite BASS pros will be fishing Alabama’s Lake Guntersville May 7-10 in an event dubbed the “Southern Challenge.” Rest assured, Alton Jones, Dave Wolak, Edwin Evers, Terry Scroggins, Matt Reed and the rest of the best will pick that lake apart, but for the rest of us, I asked Jimmy Mason, a bass guide on the lake who also fishes tournaments, for some advice on fishing this lake known for size and quantity of bass.


Terry Scroggins Wins Bassmaster Event with XCalibur Xr50

March 3, 2011

With the Bassmaster Classic having been last week in Alabama and the BASS Elite Series opening next week in southern Texas, it would have made sense for Terry Scroggins to have skipped this week’s BASS Southern Open event on Florida’s Kissimmee chain of lakes.


Inshore Lures of Choice? Heddon Spooks!

February 9, 2011

It’s been said that catching fish on topwater lures is the ultimate fishing thrill. If so, then fishing the flats is the ultimate extreme -- the X-Games of topwater fishing. Flats like the those located around Tampa Bay in Florida have an abundance of redfish, snook, tarpon, and sea trout all willing to smash a topwater lure with vengeance.


Lake Record Largemouth Caught on Fat Free Shad

January 31, 2011

Bomber’s Fat Free Shad series has been called the “Perfect Crankbait” many times, an opinion that was substantiated yet again recently when TJ Nissen landed the new lake record largemouth bass at Lake Austin in Texas. This giant bass weighed 16.03 pounds and took a Fat Free Shad BD7F in Citrus Shad color pattern the afternoon of Jan. 27, 2011.
