AOY leader Edwin Evers answers fans' fishing questions

TheBassPunk‏@TheBassPunk

Seems like some guys fish a "spot" during a tournament, why don't they "dry" up what keeps the fish coming back?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

When you have a location like that, there's a reason the spot's so good, whether it's current or a ledge. Just like deer hunting, there are certain spots that are always good, so that keeps them from drying up.

TheBassPunk‏@TheBassPunk

I'm gonna have to plant me a fish food plot! Thank you and best of luck the rest of the season.

 

Tyler Reed‏@twreed

On behalf of my friend @vtbasser favorite color and cats/dogs?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

Favorite color is blue, and definitely dogs!

 

Bass Finatics‏@bassfinatics

At what age did you start competing as an angler?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

I fished my first tournament in the 7th grade out of a one man kick boat where I propelled it with my feet.

 

Jim Scott‏@MuddyBass79

Gr8 to see you at the top AOY. Finish Strong

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

Thank you very much.

 

Bass Finatics‏@bassfinatics

What family & youth organizations do you support?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

We try to support all we can throughout the year! American Cancer Society, American Leukemia Society, Harbor Church

 

chris‏@ditchell

How confident were you in Montgomery that you had the win? Did you consider going up to the dam?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

I practiced up there & I didn't feel like the water would stay high enough. Before I went on stage, I wasn't real confident, I didn't think I had enough.

 

FishStrong‏@FishStrong1

What's your favorite bait you use from a non-sponsor company?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

It would have to be any number of swimbaits.

 

Ryan Lowdermilk‏@RyanLowdermilk

With regards to the earlier question regarding rods; if you only had 3 rods what line setup would you go with?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

I'd have one with 50-pound braid, one with 12-pound fluorocarbon and one with 17-pound fluorocarbon.

Ryan Lowdermilk‏@RyanLowdermilk

You sir, ARE THE MAN! many thx!

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

Thanks!

 

Matt Sweeney‏@DaSween67

What's your go to bait when the bite gets tough?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

I have a lot of confidence when I have a crankbait in my hand. I really like the new @MegaBassUSA Knuckle 60.

 

Andy Whitcomb‏@andywhitcomb

The Mrs. shared that "Stanley" was released in your pond? Was he marked? Any distinguishing features? Caught him?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

Yes, I'd recognize him. He has a little black spot on his tail. I have never caught him!

 

anaeli frankie‏@FrankieAnaeli

In about how many feet of water do bass spawn mostly?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

They're going to spawn right at the break of visibility. 

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

So if you can see 2 feet, they'll spawn between 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 feet.

 

Jennings Gilmore‏@jenningsgilmore

Love Major League Fishing. Congrats on the win. When is the next MLF and what do you think of that format?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

It's different & I like that all fish are released immediately when caught. Not sure when I'll fish the next MLF.

 

Darrin‏@D_Man51

Great Job on the AL River E2

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

Thank you very much! I sure was excited to win it!

 

Mark Sherrer‏@m_sherrer

Another quick one..How do you know you aren't fishing over fish and how do you relocate them so fast from day to day?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

We're always fishing over fish. There are way more fish in the water than we realize.

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

I try not to get stuck in a rut. I'll try a different retrieve or depth until I figure out where they are.

 

Brian O'Heir‏@TBOheir

Do most pros use some breaking on baitcasters or leave it off as far as you know?

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

Most pros are going to have some breaking. You have to to be able to throw it into the wind.

 

anaeli frankie‏@FrankieAnaeli

When fishing 80 degree water temperature..fish shallow or deep? (south texas heat) lol

Edwin Evers‏@edwinevers2

As summer progresses, the thermocline gets shallower, so in Aug. I'll catch fish really shallow...that's where the most oxygen is. The end of May or April, the fish are as deep as they'll be all year long.
