The mice are always pedaling for Christie

David Bell ‏@bellfishingspot 

Did you weigh any fish in on something other than the jig?

Jason Christie‏

No, all 20 fish I caught came in on the same jig.

 

Kenny Baker ‏@kennyb_50 

What type of pattern are you looking for on Pickwick this time of year.

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

Deep structure. I don’t think there’s any other way to win on Pickwick right now.

 

Josh Harvell ‏@J_Harvell

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

Colton Wolfe ‏@LIlWolfeMan

Dropping water on the Mississippi in Iowa pool 10. My state tourney is Saturday. What should my approach be?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I would just try to fish banks that offer deep water out in front

 

David Bell ‏@bellfishingspot 

Now that you have a classic spot, how soon will you start planning and prepping for lake Hartwell

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I actually started the day after I won. I’m already thinking about what I need to do 2 win that tournament. After you have qualified for the Classic, you think every day about how to win it. It’s always on your mind.

Congrats on the win the other day exciting to watch all the way to the end

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

Thanks! It was an exciting tournament for me, as well.

 

Kenny Baker ‏@kennyb_50 

If you were fishing a local night tournament and you needed a partner who would you chose from your peers on tour

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I’d say Cliff Crochet (@CliffCajunBaby) because nobody would dare get on any of our spots.

Kenny Baker ‏@kennyb_50 

Sounds like a great partner for sure. I really appreciate watching you fish you are a true pro in my eyes.

 

Lane Kindle ‏@LaneKindle

At weigh in on Saturday you were so confident that you were going to catch them Sunday. Why?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I think everybody is usually like that. That’s a definition of a pro angler. I felt like things were lining up. The water was getting dirtier, there were less boat in my area, and I was getting dialed in.

 

David Bell ‏@bellfishingspot 

 In practice did you stuck every fish to see the size or did you catch one and move on?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I caught a few, but I caught only 25% of what bit. I’m more of a looker in practice.

 

Dylan Leach ‏@theleachs

If you could take one bait to Stilwell City lake what would it be

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

A Booyah pad crasher.

 

David Bell ‏@bellfishingspot 

How will you approach the rest of the season now having a classic spot and just outside the top in AOY standings?

 

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

The goal for me is to move up in AOY as much as poss. I don’t know if I have a chance 2 win but I want to move up

I’m also going to try to win another one this season. I’ll just fish a lot more relaxed.

 

Helen Northcutt ‏@HelenNorthcutt

What are your feelings about the upcoming event BASSfest? Feelings on the tournament format?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

I’m excited because it’s something new. I’m excited to the hype around the event.

 

Shaw ‏@shawkirk7 

Favorite summer time bait to catch big ones on Lake Tenkiller

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

You’re gonna wig out when I say this, but I’d say a drop shot. I’d go with a 6-inch Houdini word.

 

Teresa Hall ‏@PauGasolfan

Congrats on ur recent win. What waters in Arkansas do u enjoy fishing on?

Jason Christie‏@christiefishing

Dardanelle, because I won there. But I enjoy them all. There’s really not a place anywhere I don’t like.

 

IshMonroe_Jr ‏@C_god 

Congrats on your recent win! What are your top 3 lures in the early summer on Grand Lake?

One Knocker Spook, BD7 crankbait and a Yum Money Minnow
