choose one of these when noise just won't do...

Their unique head design performs flawlessly around all types of shallow-water cover, and their durable, color-matched head paint schemes and hallmark ‘cross eyes’ elicit close-combat strikes when other ‘ordinary’ jigs simply won’t.

TIP: Rocks, docks, metal, and other hardcover warm up quickly when the sun rays beat down on them. Bass gravitate to these areas to warm up during the early parts of the year.

BOOYAH: Lipless Crankbait is the #1 choice

In clear water, I use the quieter, more subtle silent lipless crankbaits. Silent lures spook less fish and can trigger bites when fishing in a crowd. If everyone else is throwing loud rattling baits, try using a silent version.

TIP: The Northside (south-facing) part of lakes and ponds receive the most sunlight and warm up the fastest in the Spring. Target these areas with the baits we’ve covered, and your season should be off to a hot start.

TIP:Stained water warms up faster than clear water. Fish stained water lakes early in the year and switched to the clear lakes after that. This way, you can target the most active fish.
