Top 10 Baits from the All-American

Top 10 Baits from the All-American

The T-H Marine BFL All-American on Pickwick was meant to test the BFL’s best on a wide-open ledge fishery at the prime time of the year. Unfortunately for the weights, the ledge fishing was a little off – nevertheless, it was still the focus of the week, and how nine of the top 10 caught the majority of their bass. To do it, most employed the full range of ledge baits, from spoons to crankbaits, but most of the weight fell to more subtle presentations. READ MORE »

All-American Updates – Day 2

Day two of the T-H Marine BFL All-American looks to be another beauty. It’s supposed to be just a little bit hotter and a little bit breezier today, but otherwise it’s another gem of a day for fishing. Marshall Deakins sacked up 24-6 on day one for the early lead on the boater side and he says he has more in the tank. Nevertheless, Pickwick is a lake with big comeback potential that can also be tough on the leaders. Only the top 10 boaters and co-anglers will move on to tomorrow’s final day, and the weights are tight enough throughout that taking a homerun-cut isn’t a bad move. READ MORE »
