  1. Ty, your exactly right, on the worms. Biggest bass I ever caught was on grape, with black stripe, curly tail worm. Worms have caught as many big bass as a jig. But worm is forgotten for some reason. Get on you tube, and watch Roland Martin, fish a worm, but only guy that will make video, just fishing a worm, catching Biggers. A worm is fool proof, put a sinker on , then a hook, and a worm, your going catch fish.

  2. Just don't get the 47 percent, no but I want to. What's holding u back???? You are holding you back!!!! Mlf 5, co angler division if u don't have tornament boat. Everyone one has the co angler divisons. YOU ARE HOLDING YOU BACK!!! LITTLE RESURCH AND YOUR IN!!!!! there's so much talent sitting on couch watching people fish tournaments. Resurch, and let's go fishing ladies and gentlemen!!!!!

  3. I'm not good enough to tournament fish an have no reliable way to get to tournaments. Reason being I don't drive. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

  4. I watch a lot of fishing channels ,and i mean a lot ,but you are heads and tails more informative than the lot of all the others. Your info is very sharp and clear ,not a lot of B.S. This comes from a young 70 year old student of Bass Fishing with years of knowledge of my own, but the sport has really evolved from my days on the water .I still enjoy learning from you young guys, and you are one of the best! Keep up the great info and Thank You for sharing your Knowledge.

  5. And yes the thing about the pond practice applies in all the lures I use daily. Chatterbait tho catches everything. Smallmouth in rivers. Largemouth everywhere, northern Pike. Musky. Flathead catfish. Redfish, snook, spec trout. Etc….

  6. Texas rigs would be # 1 in my opinion because the weight, plastic and retrieve can be changed up in a thousand ways. It works in wind, calm, muddy, clear, heavy pressure. All around great bait

  7. I feel like you have some positive bias to the chatterbait lol
    My 5 for whoever cares:
    1. Jig
    2. Texas rig
    3. Crankbait
    4: Dropshot
    5: Spinnerbait

  8. I have absolutely 0 luck with crank baits. Iโ€™m convinced they donโ€™t work in super pressured ponds around me. I can kill em on a keitech or senko or even a lipless but squarebills just donโ€™t work for me

  9. I fished a tournament at Lake Cumberland in Somerset KY in 1995. I was 17 years old & fished with the big boys. I had two lures, one a black/blue jig with a pork chunk & the other was a shad color culprit jerk worm. I came in 2nd out of 22 boats. 5 fish @ 14 lbs & 7oz. I was 8 Oz away from 1st. 90% was on the jig. Thanks for you vid, it was awesome.

  10. Im trying to find someone to Co-angle for in future hopes to become a Pro angler. I know you have previous experiences as a Co-Angler. Please help me understand how you achieved this by possibly putting a video out on Co-angling and or please reach out to me if you can help me out.

  11. The jig is definitely a must have. I recently started fishing local tournaments. Got invited to be a co-angler with an experienced tournament fisherman. I was fortunate enough to catch 4 spots for a total of 9lbs 14oz from the back of the boat with a jig. The driver never caught a keeper. So if it wasnt for the jig we wouldn't of had anything to weigh. The jig is the JUICE…keep em tight fellasโœŒ๏ธ

  12. I used to dislike chatter baits but have started to catch a few and gain some confidence in them. I was primarily a spinnerbait guy. Chatter bait does skip well for sure. Always loved jigs and Texas rigs.
