“Dean Rojas had better watch out, because I think his record could be broken this week. I know I could’ve done it the first day of practice.”
And with that, Drew Cook made a comment that could likely happen, whether it's him or not. Wave upon wave of spawners are moving inward. The conditions are at their best for Rojas' record to fall.
For the record, Rojas brought in the heaviest five-bass limit in B.A.S.S. history. His catch weighed 45 pounds, 2 ounces. The record was set at Lake Toho on Jan. 17, 2001.
Back to the present day, Cook is not necessarily paying homage to Rojas. However his bait of choice, and the only lure he told me he plans to use, is a Big Bite Baits Dean Rojas Fighting Frog. With a twist.
Check out the photo taken this morning prior to the launch by James Overstreet. Cook is marinating his frogs in an unknown solution for added strike appeal. Will Cook chum up the fish to beat that record? We shall see.
