Hot Product Press: O.S.P. Blitz Max

Oct 22, 2014

What is it? O.S.P.’s newest shallow-water crashing crankbait, the Blitz Max. What does it do? O.S.P. designed the Blitz Max as a big-bodied crankbait that excels at attracting big bass from treacherous cover. The action, size, snaglessness and ability to get into heavy cover are all traits that O.S.P. reports attracts bigger bites. Plus, you’d be hard pressed to find a more durable hardbait on the market. How do I use it? Like a squarebill crankbait; in and around stumps, rocks, wood and other shallow cover.

Out-of-pocket baits

Oct 21, 2014

Another one of our Facebook readers, Dustin Keys, wants to know what out-of-pocket baits I use, and why. By out-of-pocket I assume he means those lures that I buy myself, those that do not come from sponsors. In truth I don’t use a lot of them. I have top-shelf sponsors. Their baits seem to work in most situations I’m faced with in B.A.S.S. tournaments. There are exceptions, however.
