DiPalma's change up

This morning while recording details for the top lures gallery, Greg DiPlama revealed that his first stop of the day would be to largemouth water. 

He’s had the itch all week. Each day when quizzed about his strategy he focused on drift fishing for smallmouth on the river. Today would be different. 

“I’m going to make a run today and go for the largemouth. I’m going to swing for it, catch largemouth the first thing in the morning. If I strike out I’ll go back to the drifts. 

“If they are there I will catch everyone of them there within the first 20 minutes.”

How will he catch them? 

“On a Texas rigged worm.”

Simplicity at its finest for a gutsy move. 

On Thursday, DiPalma used a Riot Baits Lil’ Creeper Jig. Beginning on Friday he switched to a Carolina Rig, made with a Riot Baits Little Fuzzy, on a 3/0 Hayabusa HD Round Bend Hook with a 1-ounce tungsten weight.
