If shallow, grassy waters are where you fish, this fall pattern could be the ticket to the bass of a lifetime.
Jigheads and wide gap hooks have long been the standards for rigging swimbaits, but the ubiquity of these lures has caused bass to become more wary of swimbait presentations.
I want to say congratulations to everyone. Boyd Duckett, the winner on Oneida, the 2013 Bassmaster Classic qualifiers and the 2012 Bassmaster Elite Series Rookie of the year, Brandon Card, all did one heck of a job this year. But, in truth, this week is all about Brent Chapman, the 2012 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year.
The Elites weigh in, and Brent Chapman gets a big award
See how the Elites fared on Day One of the Ramada Championship!
Be sure to pick the anglers who won't break under pressure in the final tournament of the season.
