Auten keeping it simple

A dizzying array of lures are typically used by the pros in the high-stakes B.A.S.S. competitions. Surprisingly, the lure lineup that you'll see in the post-Classic Top Lures gallery is simple. Todd Auten's lure lineup is an example.

A 1/2-ounce Z-Man Evergreen Chatterbait Jack Hammer, and 1/2-ounce Strike King Red Eye Shad are seeing a lot of action this week on Lake Guntersville.

Those lures are logical choices. Auten gets a mostly vertical and slow presentation with the bladed jig, while a reaction bite comes with the lipless crankbait.
