Being a South Jersey native as well, what tournaments/advice can you give me to getting started?
Three things: Learn techniques & baits you're not good at; join an organized fishing club; think about the business side.
Next time you're in the area and have some time, tweet me and let's go out fishin somewhere. Show me spots around here!
Do u like the live scoring in MLF or the traditional weigh ins more?
I like them both. They're both exciting. I don't like one more than the other.
Mike, what is your favorite season and time of the day to throw a top water frog?
My favorite season is postspawn (may-july) and favorite time of day is when the sun is highest in the sky.
What size fish do u actually consider a big fish?
Any fish that's a keeper, to me, is a big one!
What is ur favorite 7'6" medium heavy baitcasting rod
It's an Abu Garcia Veritas. I use it for spinnerbaits, vibration baits, when you're closer to the cover
You r my favorite bass fisherman keep it up !
Hey Mike, I'm heading down to FLA this weekend from Boston for some fishing. Any advice for chasing lunkers? Thx!
Use a really big black and blue jig thrown around emergent vegetation. That's where those big females stage.
What is one piece of advice for a beginning co-angler?
I would say try to fish something different than your pro is fishing. Be conscious of what your pro is fishing!
Have u ever been to anger management class?
I have not but my wife would like me to enroll in a class! Seriously, but I am working on my anger management.
what type of boat in your opinion sits highest up in the water, to get back in the shallower waters?
That's a hard one to answer. I drive a BassCat and it is really good in shallow water, add a hydraulic jack plate
Would you rather fish Toho or Kissimmee in the winter
Both are good lakes. In winter, I'd say Toho because it has the most emergent vegetation.
Getting into bass fishing. What 4 rod and reel combos would you recommend? Trying to cover all my bases
Four rods: two casting: a 7-foot med-heavy and a 7 1/2-foot heavy with a low-profile reel, 7.1:1 gear ratio. 2 spinning rods: 7 foot med and 6 1/2 medium-light action with 20-size spinning reel on both. I'd go with Abu Garcia!
Taylor swift or miranda lambert whos hotter
Miranda Lambert! Too many breakups for Taylor Swift, I ain't got time for that.
How can I start tournament fishing without a boat?
I started tourney fishing without a boat. First, join a club. Second, fish the
@bass_nation Opens as a co-angler
Hey mike... what a good line pound test to fish finesse baits with
I finesse fish with line between 6 and 10 pound test. If I had to pick one, I'd go in the middle for 8 lb test.
favorite way to fish Gunnersville Lake Mike?
I like to fish the outside edge of vegetation. On Guntersville, that happens in about 10-12 feet of water.
What's the minimum hp motor on a bass boat you'd recommend for competing?
The minimum I'd recommend for bigger tournaments is 150 hp. Most of us started with 150s and that was plenty of hp
