Zaldain's change up

Chris Zaldain is faced with an east wind that is causing him to adjust his strategy. Previously, wind wasn’t a factor because conditions were relatively calm compared to the conditions in play on Championship Sunday.

“I am going to target windblown points with tight contours on the bottom,” he said. “I’ll use a swimbait to search for bass in brushpiles.”

Zaldain is honing in on long, sloping points where the spotted bass set up on the tips of the structure.

“Spots like to hunt on the tips of the points,” he explained.

Zaldain has locked into the 45 foot depth zone and in fact, highlighted thet range on his depthfinder.

His primary lure is a 3-inch Megabass Spark Shad on a 3/8-ounce jighead.
