Zona steps in

Sep 23, 2012

Bassmaster TV co-host Mark Zona has stepped into Aaron Martens' boat for some up close and personal time. Martens has moved under Lost Bridge and is now working the riprap on the southwest side of the bridge approach with a square-billed crankbait. Martens told Zona that the bass he's caught today have been about one foot below the surface.

Evers boating shorts

Evers keeps boating shorts. There’s no lack of fish up here, but size is an issue. The little jig is sure producing; he’s getting a bite every 10 flips or so, with two back-to-back just now.

No. 2 for Martens

Martens just put his second bass in the boat.

Evers still searching

Sep 23, 2012

The further we move upriver, the fewer bites Evers is getting. He’s working a small crawfish-looking Booyah jig. It’s what got most of his bites, including the walleye, and another one just now. The fish are biting weird, not fully committed to taking the bait. It’s like they’re pecking at it. Once again, he just swung and missed.

I glanced at our BASSTrakk map a few minutes ago and saw that Aaron Martens was very near the launch ramp, so I walked over to check things out.
