3rd: Cliff Prince
From the bottom:
> Greenfish Tackle TAT (black back/silver side/orange belly) — “fished on top” [no way, lol].
> 4″ Bass Assassin Pure Craw (Delta neon, NOT Delta melon) — for sight-fishing.
> Fitzgerald T- Fitz Poppin Frog (white) — “bounced on top of matted pads.”
> Bass Assassin Fat Job (gold rush) — “flipped in hardline.”

> 17 of my 20 were on the swim jig. Swam the jig around in a spawning area [1-3′ deep] and tried to target spots they were possibly bedding. Although I believe the majority I caught were not spawning, I think a few were and I was able to get them to react to the jig.
Asked him why he mixed the jig and trailer colors — if he was color blind because of all that orange he wears (lol). Said: “I just like mixing black/blue and green pumpkin. Just a preference that probably doesn’t make much difference.”

> “I swam the jig in lily pad fields in 2′ of water with a hard bottom — they were spawning there. With the flipping jig I targeted isolated cattail and tule patches in and around these spawning areas — post-spawn and prespawn females seemed to be setting up in them.”
