With Skeet Reese, there is no one-size-fits-all answer.
Multiple times during his first B.A.S.S. Twitter chat, fans asked him for advice on what lures to use, what to look for and how to catch big bass.
And every time, he told them 'it depends.'
"My whole career is based on versatility," said Reese to one fan. "You throw whatever will catch them at the time."
Reese answered more than 70 questions in only 35 minutes during the chat. The transcript is below, lightly edited for spelling and clarity.

Welcome! Bring on the questions!
Is there any kind of warranty on your line of wright and McGill rods?
There's a limited one year warranty, so if you have an issue definitely contact Wright & McGill.
Go to bait in water less than 5 feet? Both moving bait and plastic?
Havoc Pit Boss, Lucky Craft LC 1.5
What's been toughest for you lately?? Consistency, Keeping Positive, etc...
Hah, that's a tough question! Consistency in catching fish is always the hard part.
Will bass stop mid-spawn if water temps drop or do they continue on through?
If they haven't dropped eggs then I think they'll pull back out. If they have, I think they'll stay.
How do you think Kelley Jaye is doing in his first year in the elites? He is good friend of mine that works hard
I really like Kelley Jaye. He's a great guy, and I think he had the worst luck anyone could have on the Alabama River. I thought he might win it. He's a good fisherman and will do good on tour.
Thanks Skeet! Yep, he is a jerkbait specialist.
If you could go back in time would you still stick with bass fishing as your career?
You can only have 1 Lucky Craft lure. What would you choose?
I'd choose the LV-100.
If you were fishing Smith Mountain Lake within the next few weeks, what would be your game plan?
My guess is fish have gone deep, so fish a 10-inch Havoc Federale worm & a football jig on deep structure
Yeah! I'm waiting for the day @bass_nation will come out West!
Why are oxbows along the Mississippi River full of Cypress Tress, but you dont see many Cypress' on the actual river?
I don't have the right answer, but I'm guessing it's because the oxbows have been there long enough to grow without current.
Do you ever get tired of fishing. (Mentally I mean)
No. At the end of the season, I go fish for salmon, steelhead and tuna just for fun.
