Spooning Schoolers

Spooning Schoolers

The jigging spoon was a big key for me making the top 10 at the Cup, but I didn’t even have that spoon tied on the first day. On the second morning I opened my box and saw them and thought that might be the deal. I wish I had thought that the night before. It was like candy on the second day, and the third day they wouldn’t even look at it. Then the last day it was the deal again. READ MORE »

Barkley All-American Top 10 Patterns

Barkley All-American Top 10 Patterns

FLW Bass Fishing League All-American champion Jeremy Lawyer compiled his winning weight of 50 pounds, 12 ounces on Lake Barkley by establishing a milk run of sorts that included offshore brush piles, terraced ledges at the mouths of bays and feeder creeks, and stretches of bank that were close to channel drop-offs. Others in the top 10 followed Lawyer’s script to some degree, with a few notable exceptions. The most important difference between him and his closest competitors was that he was able to count on a few big bites all three days, and get them in the boat. READ MORE »

Proximity Factors Into Lawyer’s Game Plan

Proximity Factors Into Lawyer’s Game Plan

Often we hear tournament anglers reporting a late-day kicker, perhaps a limit-maker, caught within close proximity to the takeoff/check-in site. Conversely, it’s no rarity for an angler to clear takeoff and quickly hook back to a starting spot within eyesight of the ramp. Fact is, distance is no requisite for success. Nothing wrong with a good run, but savvy anglers such as FLW Bass Fishing League All-American day-one leader Jeremy Lawyer know that the close game merits consideration. READ MORE »
