Jason, congrats on Back2Back wins! What technique are you most comfortable with? & Confidence bait?
90% of the time, when the going gets tough, I pick up a flippin' stick with wooly bug.
Congrats on the wins, impressive!! Was wondering if you have a favourite type of drop-shot lure?
I use a small Wooly Bug, 3 inches, and cut it in half down the middle. Gives it a weird profile & the fish eat it!
Jason, what are the main differences between competing on bass and the flw?
There's really no differences as far as the tournaments go. There are more boats on FLW, so the B.A.S.S. tour gives you more space to fish.
Which series do you prefer FLW or @BASS_nation
That's a loaded question. I like both of 'em equally. The way I make money is to fish & both give me that opportunity
What's your secret to locating bass?
It's hard work. Sometimes it's a sixth sense decision. There's no exchange for time on water.
For the most part do all pros get along on the elite series?
Yeah, I've been fishing 6 years & I've had very few confrontations. We all get along & we're all professionals. In fact, as I was sitting here on the phone, Derek Remitz pulled up to check that I was OK!
When it comes to prespawn fishing what is the most deadly tactic?
I would say a jerkbait, across the country. We just developed one called the Smithwick Perfect Ten & it catches fish
Hey Jason - great start to the year! Fishing two tours Im sure takes up a ton of time, do you plan on fishing any of the Opens?
I'm not. I kicked that idea around. For me to fish the Opens, it would be 6 weeks in a row. I gotta see my wife & kids.
Killer 3 pointer or in your face dunk!?
That question gave me goose bumps. I've done both and I've seen both and I'd have to go with an in-your-face dunk.
What's the biggest bass you've caught in Oklahoma and what lake did it come from?
I have caught three that were right at 10 pounds. Each out of Eufaula, Grand and Eucha.
Hey Jason! How do you prepare for all your tournaments mentally and physically?
I try not to think about the next lake until I get there. I try to keep an open mind & prepare when I get there. And physically, when you're up all day every day, your body develops endurance.
In your opinion, what is the most important technique for highland reservoirs during the spring?
You can't beat a jerkbait. You can catch above-average fish shallow or deep.
JC 1st baitcaster?
A @Lews_fishing BB1 is my favorite baitcaster.
What's the best way you have found to get sponsors?
Some have come to me & some you meet at events or you meet through a mutual friend. A lot is personal relationships.
Archery or firearms?
Archery. 175% archery!
What is your go to lure for transitioning fish?
Probably a Booyah spinnerbait. It covers a lot of water. Once, I start getting water I'll slow down.
Jason, are you missing practice time to answer twitter questions?
Yes, but we have a 14-hr practice day so this gives me a chance to eat lunch! It's not too much time for my fans!
Fastest speed on bass boat?
It was at Bull Shoals, and it was 73.9 miles per hour.
If you could only choose one, would you rather throw a shaky head or a drop shot all day?
I would say a shaky head is more versatile because you can fish it deep or around cover.
