Bass yearbook pic nixed, 19-lb double, How Crews HydroWaves
Today’s Top 5
Guess that SPRO Rat double wasn’t the biggest ever. Check these 2 howgs — a 10 and a 9 — Nathan King caught on the SPRO BBZ (silver fish) on Alan Henry, TX. Sick!
What up with the SPRO doubles??
Turbo-hawg fence lardos o’ the week.
Gitcha melon on!
Looks like this is the rumored 20+ fish caught at Saguaro, AZ. Sounds like it couldn’t be released cuz it took a hit to the gills when hooked. Still waiting on a weight. Whachoo theen for weight mang?
Charley Almassey and bud buddy Mat Saavedra lunched these 10s on the Cali Delta:
Here’s the bait, a custom-made bladed jig with an out of production Assault Worms trailer:
You see the 9-10 spot Chico State’s Chad Sweitzer caught at the Bassmaster College derby on Shasta, CA last weekend? Biggest spot ever weighed in a B.A.S.S. derby. Lookin’ like a gp jig back there:
The good thing about Thursday and Friday is there won’t be a lot of party animals.
– Dude talkin’ ’bout the B.A.S.S. media trailer Ross Barnett Elite. Thinks a bunch of Elitists will fish upriver the first 2 days but:
> “On the weekend, the river fishes small because of all the party animal traffic.”
Apparently a huge problem on Barnett:
The Rock needs our help. Bad.
Kids, cover your eyes:
The Rock fishes with a wimp stick!?!?!? Lookit those muscles, man, and he STILL uses a magical fairy dust Harry Potter wand.
Nominatin’ Skeet to get him a 10′ flip pole, Hack and Herren to teach him how to use those guns on the hookset, Biffle to disagree with Hack and Herren to make it innerestin’ (tell ’em Tommy!) and Swindle to teach him some Southernisms.
Bassin’ yearbook pic that didn’t make it.
The kid was representin’ but mom said:
> So, I had to go to school today to be sure this wasn’t going in the yearbook….
Sounds like Strike King paid all these kids (uh…they didn’t) because 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 7th, 9th and 10th all used at least one Strike King bait, and the winners only used Strike King. Two runners-up bait-wise were a Rapala DT-6 (not talked about much anymore but fished a lot) and Berkley Chigger Craws.
Shoutin’ out the winnahs, Dylan True and Matthew Lamastus of U TN Martin, who cranked steep rocky banks outside spawning pockets with a Series 5 (citrus shad) and KVD 2.5 (black back/chart). Also C-rigged a Rage Lizard and fished a 4.5″ Shadalicious swimbait:

13. TN: Old Hickory record spot.
Matt Robertson caught this 5-01 new lake record spot on Old Hickory at a recent ABA. Strike King KVD 1.5 (chartreuse sexy shad) did the damage. Fish can be seen in the Bass Pro Shops in Nashville when it passes quarantine:
> …work it around shore cover like bushes, rocks, stumps, logs, undercut banks, lily pads, weeds, etc. Move it slowly, so slowly. Tease it along near cover, then stop it about every yard and let the lure lie dead still while you count to 10, ever so slowly. Then, barely twitch it.
At Okeechobee, I was near the fish, but they were glued to one particular spot and I didn’t move up to fish them.
– Aaron Martens talkin’. Texted him when I read it: “dude, can’t really give you fishing advice but next time maybe…fish ’em? Just an idea, bro, for whatever it’s worth.” He texted me back: “Let me know when you get one of these:”
I was like: “Dude, I am NEVER getting purple Power-Poles.” HAHAHA!
Shot of the Day
What would you do if you were a-bassin’ by yourself and caught a 40.2 limit with an 11.4 kicker? Maybe this. Lookin’ like ginormous swimbait rods….
This caught my eye, for obvious reasons:
> …the new Hi Mountain Seasoning Bacon Seasoning. Adding bacon that has a perfect blend of brown sugar and black pepper truly redefines gourmet burgers. This new seasoning can be sprinkled on bacon before cooking for any meal masterpiece.
Seasoning bacon. Mind…blown.
