Mar 4, 2008

Bassmasters know size matters. Sometimes bass are looking for a full-meal deal and will strike the biggest lures in your tacklebox: 10-inch worms, spinnerbaits with hubcap-sized blades, or maybe even one of those monster California plugs the kind that looks like it was carved from a table leg. More often, they're chowing down on the most abundant prey available, and they'll bite standard-sized bass lures that mimic threadfin shad or crawfish.
