This bait is the "Real Deal"

Dec 7, 2013

Russ Lane has stayed in contention for the Bassmaster Wild Card title this week primarily on a bait he designed — the Big Bite Baits Real Deal Craw. Jeff Kriet has relied on it, too.

A look at the leaders

Dec 7, 2013

The leaderboard shuffle is happening right now on BASSTrakk, and it's taking place between the four anglers who were within 10 pounds of the lead, as expected.   Let's take a quick look at these anglers.  

Bama boys

For the first time in three days, Shaye Baker is not leading the Wild Card tournament. Of course, that's very unofficial, but it's got to be disappointing to his family and friends. Still, there's lot of fishing to be done.   Three of the top five anglers on BASSTrakk and four of the top eight are from Alabama. I think those guys may want this win more than anyone else simply because the Bassmaster Classic will be on Lake Guntersville, and they really like their chances there next February.  

Baker's not too worried

The Medlock Jig

Dec 7, 2013

Steve Wright reported a little earlier that Shaye Baker is flippin' a black and blue Medlock jig this morning. I wonder if it's the same Medlock Double Guard Jig that Ish Monroe used here in March of 2012 to win the Elite Series tournament. Either way, that bait has produced a lot of fish and a lot of prize money over the past few years.
