2013 Elite Series Ramada Quest Bull Shoals Lake - Bull Shoals, AR, Apr 19 - 22, 2013

Christie takes questions from his boat

Kinsey Cranford‏@kinsemc

What's your favorite snack to have on the water?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

Quartershare Beef Stick. I eat about six or seven a day.

 

william kleine‏@bigredhuntfish

Congrats on your finishes! Can you briefly discuss how you know when to get into the bushes and flip?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

As soon as bushes get 1/2 full of water, fish tend to move up. When the going gets tough, pick up a flipping stick

 

Fishin' Outrageous‏@TeamFOfishing

Jason, congrats on Back2Back wins! What technique are you most comfortable with? & Confidence bait?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

90% of the time, when the going gets tough, I pick up a flippin' stick with wooly bug.

 

Fishin' Outrageous‏@FishOutrageous

Congrats on the wins, impressive!! Was wondering if you have a favourite type of drop-shot lure?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

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!

 

JT‏@jtflynlow

1 angler you admire their skills in BASS elites and FLW Tour?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

That's a long list. I'd say Larry Nixon. He's done it for years. I admire him for his skills & the kind of person he is

 

Jody White‏@vtbasser

Do you prefer dogs or cats?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I have a beagle. So I guess that answers the question. ... My little one's allergic to cats and that's a good thing because we wouldn't have one anyway.

 

Jody White‏@vtbasser

What is your favorite color? (not for baits, just general)

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I'd say red.

 

Jimmy Ellis‏@J_Ellis27

What size/type of line would you use for flipping weeds in clear water?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

If it's really shallow, I'd use 25-pound to make sure I can get them out. It's a reaction bite when it's that shallow.

 

JT‏@jtflynlow

Lebron or Durant?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

Durant.

 

Jr. Brown‏@JrBrown01

Jason what is your favorite flipping set up do you use braid mono or floro when flipping

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

It would be a 7-3 Falcon swimbait rod, @Lews_fishing BB1 and a 5/0 TroKar hook. I use braid in hydrilla and milfoil. Every other occasion I use fluoro 20 or 25-pound. I will change my bait to make it slower or faster. It helps me make a good cast.

 

Craig Fowler‏@craigkfowler

Did you ever skip class to go fishing?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I don't want to answer that because my kids will probably see this.

Craig Fowler‏@craigkfowler

haha fair enough!

 

Craig Fowler‏@craigkfowler

What is your favorite bedding fish bait/color for Grand @christiefishing ?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I like a white 4-inch Yum tube. I can see it better & a lot of times bedding fish on Grand will go for it

 

Dominic Turcott ‏@Dturcott27

I’m trying to unlock spawn/post spawn laregmouth and i need help. Tips?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I'm trying to do the exact same thing right now & it is the toughest time of the year. Don't get hung up in one area. Look for fry.

 

chad matthews‏@chadwick_18

Jason what do you think has allowed you to become such a successful angler on both FLW side and BASS side of tournament fishing?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I think I'm in the perfect scenario right now. I'm in my sixth year. I have some experience and I'm making better decisions. I'm fishing with an open mind and a lot of confidence

 

Bassmaster‏@BASS_nation

We need to let @christiefishing get back to fishing. Thanks for joining us! We appreciate Jason taking time from his West Point practice.

 

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

Thank you! Hopefully we get to do this again because that means I've won another tournament!

Bass Finatics‏@bassfinatics

Good Luck!

chad matthews‏@chadwick_18

Thank you for the responses it's great to talk to the elite pros and learn things to help improve our game as anglers.
