Using Chunks Doesn’t Make Me a Dinosaur

I’m 48 years old, but until a couple weeks ago I didn’t realize that made me a dinosaur. Well, I at least felt like a dinosaur a few times while I was conducting a seminar at the Costa FLW High School Fishing Summer Camp at Kenlake State Park. My age showed again when I competed with a couple of local high schoolers in the FLW Foundation Marshall Strong charity tournament on Kentucky Lake. READ MORE »

Wake Baits for Fickle Fall Bass

Sometimes fish just don’t want to break the surface to get a lure, but will go after it when it’s just below the surface. Wake baits are great for such times. They have a reputation for being good lures for the spawn and post spawn, but I fish them a lot in the fall when the bass want something a little different. READ MORE »

Slow-Rolling Spinnerbaits in Cold Water

Crankbaits, jerkbaits and lipless crankbaits are popular search baits in the prespawn, but to me it’s hard to beat a spinnerbait. You might not get the same numbers of fish as the other baits will, but as a general rule you’ll get bigger fish. READ MORE »

Pro Tips Weekly: Terry Bolton

It seems that the weather has been more up and down this year than usual, which makes it even harder to get dialed in to where the bass are and what they’re doing. Despite the dramatic weather swings this spring, though, the fish in general are gradually moving up toward their spawning areas. READ MORE »

Pro Tips Weekly: Terry Bolton

I used to guide on Kentucky Lake for a number of years, and during that time I saw guys set hooks some funny ways, including raising the rod way over their heads and behind them. You can lose a lot of fish by getting all contorted like that. When you extend your arms way out like that behind you and the bass does something crazy like run at you, you've got nowhere to go. The line gets slack in it, and maybe the fish jumps off. READ MORE »
