1. Edwin Evers has his 29-lb Grand jig tied on.
From his insane Classic day 3 — supposed to be a 5/16-oz Andy’s Custom Bass Lures E Series Finesse Jig (green craw — notice the orange) with a Zoom Critter Craw (gp):
2. Here’s how Luke Clausen is doing.
Vid on his Insta, says he’s gonna miss the rest of the season. Get better man!
3. What Josh Bertrand puts in his pillow.
He’s allergic to feather pillows so he stuffs his old fluorocarbon in it? Guess it works, but maybe get some Claritin?
Kiddin’ kids, do NOT try that at home.
4. Watch KVD back-boat Mercer…
…in Mercer’s own boat — too funny:
5. You fishing a Rapala DT-4?
I’ve got some DT-6s but don’t think any DT-4s. Might have to change that:
> …has been Brandon Palaniuk’s “number-one bait” since he was 9 or 10 years old…starts catching bass on DT-4s when early-season water temps are in the 45 to 49-degree range.
> “It will surprise people how fast I will fish a DT when water temps get to be 54, 55, 56,” says Ott DeFoe. “It’s more about creating a reaction strike. Those bass are ready to feed — they’re hungry. So if you bring something by them at mach 1, you’re more likely to get a fish to totally eat the bait than just to nip at it.”
> “When the water’s cold, balsa’s gonna whoop your b*tt about anywhere you go,” says Gerald Swindle. “It’s just got the right wiggle.”
> “DT’s are sort of a combo of a Shad Rap and a traditional wider-wobble crankbait,” says Mike Iaconelli.
Lotta good info at that link.

Glen Freeman is a T-Bend hammer!
Dude just won his 10th [!!!!] BFL on Toledo Bend, his 11th FLW win there cuz he also won a Costa there in 2012. Daaaaaaaang mang! This time caught ’em on off north end points, sitting in 5-6′ and throwing up to 2-3′. Fished a 1/2-oz Johnston Jig with a Zoom Ultra Vibe Speed Craw (both gp). Here’s you a hammer:
DE dude wins on the Potomac.
Glad to hear there’s at least one serious bass-head in DE! Said he caught ’em on points at the mouths of Mattowoman and Quantico creeks, pebble rock and sand. Cranked a Rapala DT-6 (no color given) in 3-5′ and switched to a Strike King KVD 1.5 HC Shallow Squarebill (chartreuse/black back) in 1-3′.
13. SPRO BBZ Rat now in chrome.
Figurin’ if you fish that bait, here’s your ride:

Don’t know jack about this company but kinda diggin’ these:
