What is the best frequency to put your humminbird on when dropshotting?
I keep my chart speed about 5 and my sensitivity between 10 and 15.
What's the key to your drop shot success?
Knowing it's effectiveness and having confidence in it. I've spent a lot of time trying to master it.
When to use strait up, light fluorocarbon line versus braided line with fluorocarbon leader when dropshotting?
Use straight fluorocarbon, it's safer. The advantages of the other are castability and hookups.
If you also secure your 1st Classic title this year do you plan to join forces w/ Greg Norman and start a vineyard?
That sounds fun!

What is the most realistic Mayfly imitation lure you know of? There seems to be a lack of options.
Please let me know when you find it! I like the @megabassusa Parachute Bug, though!
What size/brand of hooks do you recommend for flipping heavy mats
I love the new Gamakatsu heavy cover flipping hook, I'd probably use a 3/4.
What do you miss the most about fishing Southern California trout fed lakes?
The big bass.
What should be the focus as far as structure/cover?
Where it's located and if there is bait by it!
How do you feel about Seminole and have you been there?
Last time I was there was the last @bass_nation event in 2003. It's a healthy lake & has a lot of nice fish in it.
How do you like the new mega bass series rods?
I love them.
What runner are you on the upcoming Ragnar Relay race? Also will you be running along the banks of Lake Mead?
I hope so but my captain @ericlopez98 likes to surprise us when we get there!
What is your favorite event to fish each year and why?
The Classic because the stakes are high & you get the most time to prepare.
Do you think there should be a rule where no info (spots) should be shared at all from outsiders (locals)?
I would love that!
Rumor is you have a big hunting trip coming up. Are you ready to chase a big whitetail?
Yes, but I'm most looking forward to my daughter, Jordan, hunting for the first time!
@GilleyScott Mark this down -- Jordan is going to get her first deer or she will sling a lot of bullets trying.
Best fall bait when the bite is tough, for lakes and ponds.
One of my favorites overall is probably a jig.
How do you rig a dropshot, more texas, wacky rig or how?
It's about 50/50. It's all pretty equal over the season!
Favorite shaky head and dropshot Roboworms for fall fishing and into winter fishing? Color, size
Favorite is 6-inch ST in the fall and winter in Aaron's Magic, MM3, bold bluegill & prism shad
Hugs and kisses to the @BASS_nation staff, and thanks for all of your questions!
