Recently he took some time to answer five questions about his bass fishing approach. 2 / 12 No. 1: What is your favorite jig style? 3 / 12 “Man, that’s a toss up between several different jigs. But, I’d have to say that a Lure Parts Online Backstroke swim jig is one of my all-time favorites. I’ll throw that on a 7-foot, 6-inch Castaway Swim Jig rod paired with a Team Lew’s Lite baitcaster in a 7.5.1:1 gear ratio. It’s necessary to have a high-speed reel when swim jig fishing.” 4 / 12 No. 2: What is your favorite structure to fish? 5 / 12 “I love fishing wood, whether it would be laydowns, stumps or brush piles. I enjoy finding and catching bass in shallow wood. If I was told that I had one bait to use for the rest of my life it would be a 4-inch Tightlines UV Flipping Tube Texas rigged with a 1/4 ounce Reins Tungsten nose weight — that’s a great bait around wood! I’d use that presentation on a 7-foot, 6-inch Castaway flipping rod matched with a Team Lew’s Lite baitcaster in a 7.5.1:1 gear ratio. Again, that high-speed reel is essential to pick up line quickly for a solid hook set.” 6 / 12 No. 3: What is your favorite crankbait? 7 / 12 “My favorite crankbait is some type of a shallow-running squarebill. I can’t nail down only one, so here are two, one of which will be the Ima Squarebill that I helped design. It’s one of the shallowest running squarebills on the market. It only goes down to about 3 feet. The second bait would be a hand-made balsa bait built by PH Custom Lures. I’d throw both cranks on a 7-foot Castaway Skeleton cranking rod with a Lew’s Tournament Pro baitcaster in a 6.5.1:1 gear ratio.” 8 / 12 No.4: What is your favorite plastic worm style? 9 / 12 “I love a 4- or 6-inch stick worm, more specifically a Tightlines UVenko is my favorite worm to fish with. I like to Texas rig or wacky rig it, shaky head or weightless — it’s one of those all-around baits for me. And, how I rig it will dictate which rod-and-reel combo I choose.” 10 / 12 No. 5: Considering all of the aforementioned presentations is there one body of water that comes to mind where each of those will play a role? 11 / 12 "The Mississippi River in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. I love that place, the amount of quality fish there is amazing, and I’ll have each of the techniques I just mentioned on the deck of my boat." 12 / 12 Bonus Question: What is your favorite shampoo brand? Head & Shoulders, of course!
