Big Baits, Big Bites

by April 26, 2014

This was a sick day out on the Big O, targeting staging and bedding fish with D&M Custom Baits Jackpot Flipping Jig (shown here) and the 5.5″ Flippin Craw (shown here).


We’re not supposed to see bedding fish at the end of April; especially in South Florida. But for every rule there’s an exception and I was pretty stoked about this one! I employed a “one two” approach; utilizing some bigger baits to filter through to those bigger bites and it definitely payed dividends. Sadly, I went out the following day and lost two  fish that I think were the slounches I was referring to towards the end of the vid.


There was definitely something key to D&M’s Jackpot Flipping Jig when it came to bedding bass. I just couldn’t work bites out of them blind flipping straight plastics. At the same time, the big profile of the 5.5″ Flippin Craw allowed me to put a big plastic way back in a couple grass points to tap into fish moving in and out (staging/post spawn). Just a blast of a day and a reminder to “Never say never….”
