Evers goes live after second win

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Edwin Evers wasn't just the first pro to put together back-to-back Elite Series wins. He was also the first one to combine his B.A.S.S. Twitter chat with a Periscope stream.(The former paid a lot better than the latter.)

Evers did his second B.A.S.S. Twitter chat in as many months, thanks to his double whammy. But this time, he did it with a twist. Not only was he taking questions from fans live on Twitter, he was answering in a live broadcast on the relatively new app Periscope. At several points, he had so many questions at once that he couldn't even read them all.

To watch future live streams from Evers, download Periscope and search for Edwin Evers.

Below is the full transcript of the Twitter chat. To read transcripts of previous chats with pros, click here.

Keep up with the latest in bass fishing by following @BASS_Nation on Twitter and Periscope.

 

Bassmaster ‏@BASS_nation 

Welcome to the B.A.S.S. Twitter chat, @edwinevers2, and congratulations on your back-to-back wins!

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

I'm excited about winning the last tournament! I'm looking forward to having some fun and answering some questions!

 

Aaron Russell ‏@aaronrussell84 

What do you look for when you break down a new lake?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

I look for the biggest flats. I relate it to lakes I've had success on. Fish live on those flats. That's where the fish feed, spawn. So I will then break the lake into 3 sections.

 

Alan Bailey ‏@alan_bailey35 

Where does KY lake rank on your favorites to fish?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

Kentucky Lake is way up there! It's so big and it really spreads the field out. It's in my Top 5.

 

Adam McCollum ‏@AUadam 

Hey @edwinevers2 how does it feel to be snappin' necks and cashin' back 2 back #BassElite champion checks?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

You're a poet a didn't know it! It's been great and super relaxing sharing it with my family! I feel very blessed!

Adam McCollum ‏@AUadam 

Dude, you're on fire! Can we expect a top 12 out of you at Chesapeake?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

I can promise you, I'm going to try my hardest! I've got Angler of the Year in my sights.

 

Tyler Hodges ‏@one_who_wanders 

Congratulations on your back to back victories @edwinevers2 . That is no small feat!

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

I can't believe it! It's just a huge blessing to have accomplished that! Good luck the rest of the season! You've got some momentum now, keep it going!

 

Spotmonkey ‏@sptmnky 

Congrats! Do you think I could grow pecans in Northern IL?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

No you can't. It's too cold! The line for pecans is southern Missouri.

Spotmonkey ‏@sptmnky 

@edwinevers2 @BASS_nation Good to know, thanks! I guess I'll have to ask my local grocery store to carry yours.

 

Spotmonkey ‏@sptmnky 

I just ordered some Dark Chocolate Covered Pecans 8 oz. - Got a 25% Discount!!!!

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2

Spotmonkey ‏@sptmnky

M&M ‏@M_and_M_fishing 

What is your favorite summer time bait and why?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

Topwaters—they bite early, it's a pretty time of the day & you get to see that explosion—Megabass X-Pod

M&M ‏@M_and_M_fishing 

Thank you for answering!

 

Ken Duke ‏@thinkbass 

Edwin, this is Ken Duke. Is it true that you win tournaments merely because you enjoy doing these chats?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

I just enjoy talking to you guys! It's a lot of fun! So definitely, Ken!

 

Jody White ‏@JodyBlanco 

Do you prefer dogs or cats?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

I'm not a cat person at all. I'm a dog person!

 

chris mitchell ‏@ditchell 

Do bass eat pecans?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

You know I'd catch every one of them if I could catch them on pecans because they taste good! But I don't think they do.

 

Bass Fishing Tips ‏@BassFishnTips 

If limited to 5 rod/reel combos to fish entire season, what would they be?

Bass Fishing Tips ‏@BassFishnTips 

Congrats on your fantastic season too btw :) ... @edwinevers2 via @BASS_nation

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

Spinning rod with 6 or 8 pound test, a Bass Pro Carbonlite with Johnny Morris spinning reel, a 7-6 rod,  a couple 7 foot medium heavy action for frogs, spinnerbaits, Chatterbait; maybe 7-3 flipping stick.

 

Craig Fowler ‏@craigkfowler 

Lake Eufaula OK hot summertime. What do you look for? Specific schools or specific structure? What baits?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

It fishes like 2cdifferent lakes. In the clear sections the fish are offshore.In the stained rivers they're shallow.

 

Chad Wiley ‏@ChadWly 

About 90% of us that attended @BASSChaplain service at #BASSfest drew a check. Just sayin' #Godisgood

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

Yes he is, no doubt.

 

Ken Duke ‏@thinkbass 

I have to beat my colleague, @JodyBlanco, to this story, Edwin. KVD has his chocolate chip cookies. You have pecans. Important?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

Yes! I had my wife just pack me up a box so I can take them up to Chesapeake. I like the honey roasted.

 

M Conn ‏@talking2EE 

Is there a best time to use soft v. hard jerkbaits? & are there any techniques you prefer for spotted bass? Thanks!

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

I used a Zoom Super Fluke and I would use it on really shallow or on top of grass, when fish come up near the surface. A jerkbait will hook a few more fish, out deeper, and at St. Lawrence you had to watch where you hooked the fish

 

M Conn ‏@talking2EE 

What is the one of the more important questions beginner anglers should be asking you, but don't? And your answer?

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

The biggest key is to develop your own skills, patterns, styles & you do that with time on the water. Spend time in the back of an Elite boat as a marshal or co-angler in the Opens. Learn all you can.

 

Bassmaster ‏@BASS_nation 

Thanks for joining us, @edwinevers2, and good luck at the Chesapeake!

 

Edwin Evers ‏@edwinevers2 

I appreciate everyone's time and all of your questions! We'll have to do it again - maybe after Chesapeake!
