So Far So Good

It’s been a great start to the Elite season. I always enjoy going to Deep South fisheries in the springtime when the bass are shallow because it really fishes to my strengths. I feel very thankful to have come out of the first two tournaments with good finishes and a great start in the Angler of the Year race. It’s always good to start the season with some momentum.

GOING ROGUE
Alton Jones Like Christie, 2008 Bassmaster Classic champion Alton Jones also considers a Rogue to be one of his primary weapons in late winter and early spring when the water temperature is anywhere from the upper 30s to the low 50s.

Jones first discovered the magical qualities of the Rogue years ago during a tournament on Lake Seminole, located on the border of Georgia and Florida.  “It was one of those tournaments where the water temperature had dropped down to the 40s,” he remembered.

“I was flipping and pitching around the edges of a deepwater hole in a backwater area and my co-angler was throwing a Rogue out in the middle.  I chalked it up to luck when he caught his first five-pounder behind me, but it got my attention when he put a second five-pounder in the boat. That was the first time that I realized just how good a Suspending Rogue could be in extremely cold water.” Complete Article

Here are his 5 favorite deep water baits.
 
Stealth Mode, Fish Management Fueled Jones' Triumph

As an avid hunter, Alton Jones knows the importance of being stealthy in the field. When a deer locks in on you or hears something out of the ordinary, your chances of bagging it are likely cooked.

The same goes on the water, at least when fishing for bedding bass as he was at the St. Johns River Bassmaster Elite Series. The veteran pro from Waco, Texas, went to great lengths to blend into his surroundings and not draw the attention of the hefty females he was targeting all week. Read More
