Rapala's New Shadow Rap

Wicked Matte Finishes for Clear Water!
When the Bassmaster Classic was last held on Oklahoma’s Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees, Mike Iaconelli led after Day 1 and Brandon Palaniuk finished runner-up. Returning to that waterbody with a new Rapala® bait has both anglers envisioning a slightly different outcome.

“Last time we were there, a jerkbait played a huge role in my second-place finish,” says Palaniuk, a six-time Classic qualifier. “So going back with the Shadow Rap Shad in my arsenal – a bait I didn’t have before, and something the fish have never seen – could be a huge key factor in trying to win this thing.”

Iaconelli is optimistic also about his Classic chances with a Shadow Rap® Shad.

“I haven’t been this excited about a brand-new bait for a long time,” says Ike, the 2003 Classic Champion and 17-time qualifier. “Hands down, it’s going to be a player this year.”

Iaconelli, Palaniuk and fellow Rapala pro Ott DeFoe all appreciate the Shadow Rap Shad advantage they’ll enjoy in the Classic, which will be contested March 4-6.

“Knowing that I’m one of the very few guys who’s got it this year is going to let me fish with confidence,” says DeFoe, a five-time Classic qualifier and the 2011 Bassmaster Rookie of the Year. “Fishing something different will help me catch more and bigger bass. With the action it’s got, man I just totally expect this thing to be a big hit there at Grand Lake this year.”

Similar to the original Shadow Rap, released at last year’s Classic, the Shadow Rap Shad is taller in profile than its predecessor, but not as long. And, rather than slowly sinking on the pause — as an original Shadow Rap does — a Shadow Rap Shad slowly rises when stopped, slightly wobbling and perfectly mimicking an injured shad.

John Cox Wins 2016 Walmart FLW Lake Hartwell Event with 67-06lbs!

Canadians Jeff Gustafson 4th and Cory Johnston 8th!

John Cox of Debary, Fla., loves fishing ponds. As a kid, he cut his teeth fishing ponds. The first bass club Cox ever joined was a johnboat-only-club that fished on small ponds. The first aluminum boat Cox owned had a blown outboard on it that he could not afford to get fixed. But that didn’t bother him one bit. After all, he just wanted to put the boat in on ponds where he could use the trolling motor to fish around the banks.
Staying quick and aiming shallow proved the difference for Cox.

Maybe that helps explain why Cox has mostly run aluminum boats on the Walmart FLW Tour. It might also help explain why Cox usually seeks out smaller, limited access backwaters connected to lakes during Tour events.
“These big lakes confuse me,” Cox laughs. “I feel much more comfortable fishing in smaller backwaters off of a main lake or river.”
Today, Cox utilized just such a secluded backwater to come from second place and win the Walmart FLW Tour presented by Evinrude and hosted by the Anderson Convention & Visitors Bureau at Lake Hartwell. His final-day weight of 16 pounds, 2 ounces was enough to nudge past Clark Wendlandt at the finish line by a mere 7 ounces. In four days, Cox accrued 67 pounds, 6 ounces to win the $100,000 payday.
This is the second time Cox has accessed an obscure area for a Tour win. His first Tour win was in 2011 at the Red River when he pushed his aluminum boat through a culvert into a backwater area to reach unpressured fish.

Rick Clunn Wins 2016 BASS Elite St. Johns River with 81-15lbs!

Clunn Gets it Done with  Bladed Jig.                           
By Bryan Brasher

On Nov. 5, 1976, Missouri angler Rick Clunn claimed his first B.A.S.S. victory in the Bassmaster Classic on Lake Guntersville.

It was his first giant step toward becoming a true legend in the sport of professional fishing.

On Sunday, he won for the 15th time on the B.A.S.S. circuit — and in many ways, this step might have gone even further toward cementing his legacy.

Clunn, who will turn 70 in July, caught five bass that weighed 19 pounds during Sunday’s championship round and won the Bassmaster Elite at St. Johns River presented by Dick Cepek Tires & Wheels easily with a four-day weight of 81-15. The win was bolstered by a monumental catch of 31-7 during Saturday’s semifinal round.

“I was certainly feeling some pressure after having such a big weight yesterday,” said Clunn, who finished 4 pounds ahead of second-place finisher Greg Hackney (77-15). “Through the years, you just learn to hide it better. Having my son (River) here helped a lot.”

After catching 16-11 and 14-13 the first two days, Clunn was in 31st place and seemed a longshot to make Sunday’s Top 12 championship cut. But the incredible catch of 31-7, which ranked as the third-best five-bass limit of his career, gave him the lead going into the final round with 62-15.

2016 Walmart FLW Lake Hartwell Day 3: Clark Wendlandt Widens Lead.

Cory Johnston and Jeff Gustafson make Top 10!
by Rob Newell
Amazingly, the good weather streak at the Walmart FLW Tour event presented by Evinrude and hosted by the Anderson Convention & Visitors Bureau on Lake Hartwell defied all odds today by proving weather forecasters wrong. What was supposed to be a 70 percent chance of rain with cooling temperatures today actually turned out to be a decent fishing day. Now, granted, the weather was not as nice as it has been the last two days, but it was certainly good enough to sight-fish and that’s all the leaders really cared about.

For the third day in a row, there was a lead change. This time Clark Wendlandt of Leander, Texas, has grabbed the pole position. Wendlandt, who is no stranger to winning FLW Tour events with his eyes, sacked up 19 pounds, 9 ounces on day three and now holds a 1 pound, 5 ounce lead going into the final day with 52 pounds, 9 ounces total.
Wendlandt is a brilliant strategist when it comes to the sight fishing game. He has a knack for staying with waves of bass that move shallow throughout a whole lake. He has done it several times for sight fishing wins on Beaver Lake and Lake Murray and he is at it again on Hartwell.

2016 BASS Elite St. Johns River Day 3: Rick Clunn Smashes Monster Limit to Take Lead!

Clunn Stuns with 31-07 lb limit!                              
By Bryan Brasher
By Dozens of anglers from the Bassmaster Elite Series joined an already-giant crowd of spectators Saturday afternoon to watch Rick Clunn weigh in his Day 3 catch.
They sensed something special was about to happen — and they were right.

still has his magic.  (Photo: BASS)
The 69-year-old Missouri angler, who has fished more than 400 events with B.A.S.S., proved he still has plenty of fight left with an eye-popping five-bass limit that weighed 31 pounds, 7 ounces. The tournament-best catch pushed Clunn’s three-day total to 62-15 and lifted him from 31st place into the lead in the Bassmaster Elite at St. Johns River presented by Dick Cepek Tires & Wheels.
Clunn, a four-time winner of the Bassmaster Classic and a 14-time champion on the B.A.S.S. circuit, said it was one of the better rounds of tournament fishing he’s ever had.
“It was just one of those days that was magical,” Clunn said. “This is the third-largest five-fish limit I’ve ever weighed in. Everything went right. Every fish that bit, I caught.”
Clunn said he had known all week that the fishery had the potential to produce a big bag. As it turned out, he needed two bags to carry in his monumental catch – one of which was carried up the walkway from the boat dock by fellow Elite Series angler Skeet Reese.

2016 BASS Elite St. John's River Day 2: Hackney in Command.

Sight Fishing a Grind as Topwaters Tempt.
By Brian Brasher
With most of the field sight fishing for spawning bass, Louisiana pro Greg Hackney took a slightly different approach during Friday’s second round of the Bassmaster Elite at St. Johns River presented by Dick Cepek Tires & Wheels.

By daring to be a little different, Hackney caught a five-bass limit that weighed 18 pounds, 1 ounce and jumped into the overall lead with a two-day total of 39-6. Florida pro and local favorite Terry Scroggins is second with 38-8, followed by Alabamian Jordan Lee with 38-7 and South Carolina angler Marty Robinson with 38-5.
“I’m fishing spawning fish for sure,” Hackney said. “I’m not necessarily looking at all of them, but I know they’re bedding or guarding fry or something.
“I caught a couple of rats (small fish) that I was looking at. But I caught all of the good ones just fishing.”

Once again, brilliant blue skies with a few clouds and no wind graced the field and to hear the anglers tell it, there are still plenty of fish moving up – by the hour.

Several leaders said they found new fish today and others have even commented they have watched fish swim up and lock down right in front of their eyes.
Though the weatherman continues to threaten with rain over the weekend, pros are in a state of bed-fishing bliss, with leaders claiming they plan to sight-fish right on into the weekend.
With sight fishing in full effect, it’s no wonder that the lead spot has been overtaken by John “Eagle Eye” Cox, an angler known for his sight-fishing savvy on the FLW Tour. Today Cox weighed in 20 pounds, 5 ounces for a two-day total of 37 pounds, 1 ounce.
While Cox did sight fish quite a bit today, he did admit that his two biggest fish came from, “just fishing” while looking for beds. One of those big ones registered 6-pounds, 11 ounces on the scales.

2016 Walmart FLW Lake Hartwell Day 1: Darrel Robertson Leads with Ideal Sight-fishing Conditions.

Gussy lands 6-14 bass to grab big bass award.                                                                               FLW PRESS RELEASE 
During the official practice period for Walmart FLW Tour event presented by Evinrude and hosted by the Anderson Convention & Visitors Bureau on Lake Hartwell, a huge springtime warm-up graced the Southeast. For three days in a row, sunny slick conditions warmed Hartwell’s waters to the peak spawning temperatures for bass. All during practice anglers trolled the banks looking at fish that had just moved up from deep water and were just starting to make beds.

Today the pros finally got to mash the gas and see exactly what Hartwell could produce. On a scale of 1 to 10 for sight-fishing conditions, today ranked a 10 plus with bright blue sunny skies and not a breath of wind. Anglers were not confined to just pockets or coves for sight-fishing; they could have sight-fished on main-lake shoals if they wanted.
The result was a weigh-in dominated by bass that were being looked at when they were caught. Hartwell showed out with multiple 15-pound bags. In fact, 27 limits topped the scales at 15 pounds or better on the pro side. The top 20-cut after day one stands at 15 pounds, 10 ounces.

Sight Fishing key to Season Opener

During the final round of practice for the Bassmaster Elite at St. Johns River presented by Dick Cepek Tires & Wheels, Tennessee angler Brandon Lester found a giant largemouth on a spawning bed.

He was so excited about the fish that he texted some of his family members and told them to pay attention to when the tournament began, because he thought he could make something special happen early.                                                                                                      
Hopefully they took it to heart.
Lester went straight to the big fish Thursday morning — and caught it on his fourth cast — to set the tone for a fantastic day of sight fishing. The bass, which weighed 9 pounds, 3 ounces, anchored a five-fish limit that tipped the scales at 23-13 and gave Lester the opening-round lead.

ICAST conqueror has Bassmaster Classic wish

Canadian Company an ICAST KING!
Originally posted Angling International

Five industry awards in six years makes LIVETARGET the most decorated lure manufacturer in the history of ICAST.
And the Canadian company says that success in the Bassmaster Classic would be the icing on the cake. “If we had one hope from the event it would be that David Walker wins the event using one of our LIVETARGET lures,” says Marketing Manager Gary Abernethy.
“The bass market represents a huge part of the LIVETARGET portfolio as the company makes hundreds of lures that match the different forage types and techniques for the sector. The Classic Expo offers a great chance to showcase these to customers who do not normally get to see such an array of lures in one location.
“As well as being able to see our products, there will also be videos on show at the booth alongside our pro staffers who will be there to meet visitors and sign autographs. There is no other event that draws the attention of the consumer and media like the Classic.
“It has a great balance of promotional atmosphere along with a serious fishing competition. Most people do not realise how huge the Classic is to the fishermen themselves. Making the Classic roster becomes the whole focal point of their fishing season.
“It acts as a jump start to a new season so it is important to vendors, retailers and tournament anglers.”

Jason Christie's Old-School Approach Talk of the Bassmaster Classic

Oklahoma pro Jason Christie ended up one spot short of winning the 2016 Bassmaster Classic at Grand Lake, Okla., finishing second to fellow Oklahoman and Bassmaster Elite Series roommate Edwin Evers. Though he didn't win, Christie's old-school spinnerbait approach was the talk of the tournament, even among fellow competitors.

With the cold and muddy water, Christie wanted a bulky bait that he could fish slowly. He fished a 1-ounce BOOYAH Blade spinnerbait that he altered by replacing the single No. 5 Colorado blade with a huge No. 6 gold Colorado blade, and used the new YUM Pulse swimbait as a trailer.

"I used that combination because I wanted to increase the strike zone in that dirtier water," he said. "The fish couldn't see so well, so I wanted them to feel the bait."

New Jackall Lipless Crank!

TN/60 – TN/70 Disc Knocker Lipless Crankbait –
Expanding its TN lipless crankbait line-up, Jackall Lures offers the new TN/60 and TN/70 Disc Knocker baits. Ideal for targeting pressured fish, these new lures incorporate a disc-shaped weight in its body chamber to create a tempting unique, deep sound.  The bottom lip of both versions have the same tungsten weight as the original TN 60/70 lipless cranks, allowing them to swim level at the slowest retrieves and also stand straight up on the bottom when stopped.
The 2.4-inch TN/60 Disc Knocker weighs in at 1/2-ounce, while the TN/70 is a 2.8-inch lure weighing 5/8-ounces. The eight available colors include SG Threadfin Shad, Angry Craw, Spawning Tiger, HL Black/Gold, TO Muddy Shad, Sprinkle Wakasagi, SS Chartreuse and Flash Gill.

Officially being introduced at the 2016 Bassmaster Classic Outdoor Expo, starting Friday, March 4 at the Cox Business Center in Tulsa, Okla., the TN/60 and TN/70 Disc Knocker lures will also be available that day at selected tackle retailers nationwide and in Canada. MSRP: $14.99 (USD)

Edwin Evers is the 2016 BASSMASTER Classic Winner with 60-07lbs!

Third Day Heroics Nets Win!
By Bryan Brasher

For the first two days of the GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro, the buzz centered around local sensation Jason Christie of nearby Park Hill, Okla.

But on the final day, another of Oklahoma’s favorite sons stole the show.

Edwin Evers of Talala, Okla., caught an incredible 29 pounds, 3 ounces of bass from Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees Sunday to push his three-day total weight to 60-7. The epic finish was enough to help him storm past Christie and the rest of the Classic field to earn a $300,000 payday and a spot in professional bass fishing history.

The win was Evers’ 11th with B.A.S.S., but his first time to raise the Classic trophy.

“It hasn’t quite hit me yet,” said Evers, who was fishing his 15th Classic. “I don’t know when it will. But I know 29 pounds on the last day of the Classic is big.”

Evers certainly didn’t seem like he was ready to win a Classic championship earlier in the week.

2016 Bassmaster Classic on Grand Lake Day 2: Jason Christie Leading with 37-9 lb!

Canadian Charles Sim finishes 31th.
By Bryan Brasher

For the first 43 years of the GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro, only one angler managed to win the event in his home state.

Now, there’s a chance it could happen for the third year in a row.

After establishing a solid lead with 20 pounds, 14 ounces on Day 1 at Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees, Oklahoma pro Jason Christie added 16-11 Saturday and maintained his spot atop the leaderboard with a two-day total of 37-9. Christie leads second-place angler Todd Faircloth (31-14) by more than 5 pounds, and has better than a 6-pound advantage over third-place angler Edwin Evers (31-4), another Oklahoma native.

“It wasn’t a great day by Grand Lake standards, but it was pretty good compared to what everybody else did today,” said Christie, who lives in Park Hill, Okla., just an hour from Grand Lake. “Just like Friday, I was surprised that I had as much weight as I did.”

Christie was emphatic Friday that he was going to stick with the one tactic that’s really been working for him since practice began for the event last week.

2016 Bassmaster Classic on Grand Lake Day 2: Mid-morning Report.

Canadian Sim jumps 30 spots with 3 big fish!
By Luigi De Rose

It's 10am (central time) and the lake is some-what dead. Bright sun and no wind killed almost everyone's morning bite. No one has a limit and the fishing is starting to grind on all the competitors. Surprisingly, the mid-morning was one of the worst fishing periods yesterday but several big fish have just been boated and it might signal a new beginning.

Here's the unofficial top 5.

  1. Randy Howell 25-4lb
  2. Todd Faircloth 23lb
  3. Jason Christie 23 lb
  4. Bill Lowen 23lb
  5. Greg Vinson 22lb

the opposite of what most of the field has experience.

But on Friday, one angler — a local favorite who lives right down the road — did it better than anyone else.

Jason Christie, a Park Hill, Okla., pro who lives just an hour away from the lake, brought five bass to the scales that weighed 20 pounds, 14 ounces and took the opening-round lead in the Super Bowl of professional bass fishing. Alabamian Greg Vinson, who almost missed the event due to the lingering effects of a concussion, is second with 18-1, and Texas pro Alton Jones is third with 17-13.

Even after a big day, Christie admitted the fishing was tough.

“It was slow. It was a grind, but it was a grind in practice,” Christie said. “I honestly didn’t think I had that kind of weight, but the fish up here just fool you because they’re thick and heavy.

“I’m not getting a lot of bites. I think the most I’ve had in one day is nine — and that’s including practice.”

Getting just nine bites during an eight-hour day forces an angler to exercise patience and remain focused through the downtime so he doesn’t miss the next bite when it finally comes.
