How to invent a bass lure

Jan 25, 2011

In March 2001, during a local tournament on Sam Rayburn Reservoir, Kelly Jones Jr. and his partner spotted a 12-pound largemouth on a bed tucked underneath some of Rayburn's famous flooded buckbrush. They already had 19 pounds in the livewell and this one would have easily locked up a win, but try as he might, every presentation Jones made to the bass snagged in the brush and the fish was never caught.
