A top notch fishing lure to use for samllmouth bass is the Berkley Flicker Shad.
Just this past year one of my friends had a lot of luck with it on Lake St. Clair. The smallies, musky, and northern pike seem to respond to it quite well. The color my friend used was the “purple tiger.”
If you take a look at the crankbait to the right, you can see that it’s quite a unique color!
It may seem a little too bright for murky water, but guess what, the crankbait seemed to work great in murky water as well as clear.
The Berkley Flicker Shad is a very versatile fishing lure. For more information please watching my fishing video up above and if you’re a member on YouTube, please subscribe!
Fisherman Austin Ganey was fined five years of probation, a $10,000 fine and must serve 100 hours of community service for damaging an archaeological petroglyph on the Colorado River.
Ganey had been on a fishing trip on the river below Glen Canyon Dam in June 2010. While his trip was stopped on a beach, he hiked to the Descending Sheep Panel and scratched his name into the panel.
The Park Rangers noticed the etching right after his party left, they caught up with him and he admitted to committing the offense.
Kind of funny, I’ve heard stories of people who killed others and been left off with a lesser punishment.
While I believe Ganey was wrong, but I don’t think he should be fined $10k and put on five years of probation. Just a little too harsh if you ask me…
In relation to my best fishing lure beetle spin video, I forgot to mention how I’ve caught two bass at once with this fishing lure.
This actually happened to me twice in my lifetime. What happens is one bass bites on the willow leaf blade, while another bites on the soft bait.
You have to be quick to flip both of them into your boat since the willow leaf blade does not have a hook on it.
This was quite the exciting experience for me. This goes to show how well the Beetle Spin fishing lure works on bass. You should pick up a couple of these this spring and give them a try, you’ll be surprised what species of fish bite on the lure.
I’ve caught walleye, northern pike, crappie, and muskellunge on the beetle spin. But remember, you must do the gold willow leaf spinner modification to get all the benefits from this lure!
The gold spinner really adds a nice touch!
