Alton Jones Jr. ready for 2017

Zoneloc pro Alton Jones Jr. has sure made a monster splash in 2016. Jones took the Red River B.A.S.S. Open title to earn a berth to the 2017 Bassmaster Classic. He also finished high enough in points in the Opens to qualify for the Bassmaster Elite Series. It was one heck of a year, indeed.

Sure, he's the son of former Bassmaster Classic champion and pro bass fishing icon Alton Jones. He was a past Frisbee partner of tournament legend Aaron Martens and was frequently swung around by the likes of former Angler of the Year (AOY) Brent Chapman. But that doesn't make you successful when you get your chance to play in the big leagues. Full Story

 
Alton Jones gets hooked

Alton Jones is a name synonymous with success in the world of professional bass fishing. Jones is a former Bassmaster Classic champion and Angler of the Year (AOY). Add a few Bassmaster wins along the way and you have a man who's had incredible success throughout his career.

You'd think the most important things to a fella who fishes for a living would be his boat and motor, rods and reels, etc. Sure, they are right up there, but there is something simple, small and often taken for granted by many anglers that Jones values just as much. What is that you say? The fishing hook. Full Story

 
JONES' PRACTICE CRANKBAIT

When the Elite Series made a stop on the Mississippi River this past September, Alton Jones turned in a strong performance with a 3rd place finish. While he used a variety of different baits during the tournament, he located several key schools of bass during practice using a crankbait.

Following the third day of competition, Jones divulged that, during practice, he cut off five of the six hook points on his square bill crankbait and pinched down the barb on the one remaining hook point to create a “practice crankbait” that allowed him to feel the weight of the fish before it pulled free.

He believes that the tactic allowed him to go back to the same areas during the tournament and catch fish that would otherwise be lure shy if he had landed them during practice with a traditional crankbait.
