  • Fished many a tournament on Clear Lake 30 years ago. I was there when Fred Borders set the lake record with 5 fish weighing 40+ pounds. I've often wondered if Bob Todd is still alive. Watch out for that sandbar in Rodman slough.

    Nicole ZytaNicole Zyta2 muaj më parë
    • I also fished that tournament when Fred broke the records. I fished from No. Hollywood Marine with Hawk, Wilson, Finwall, Hopper, Folkstad... Bob Todd was a good man (owned the motel and Ranger Boat dealership there). I've been on Lake Conroe (TX) for the last 30 years and don't know if he's still alive. After hitting a duck in Rodman slough, we planted a 20' Ranger on that sandbar you mentioned (Rodman was no wake, as you know). If no one complained, did we break the speed limit in that slough?

  • How am I just seeing this? ! One question, how is it better doing the quick reel rather than twitching the bait with the rod tip? I've tried it but been using my rod all my life so feels very strange. But ALWAYS willing to adjust if it'll help. Starting with my favorite jerkbait! LOVE IT! So do the pike up here unfortunately. ;)

Everybody has all same baits. No secrets. Location and presentation separates a lot of people. And the reel jerking and rod popping is how we've out fished a vast majority in our area of world and made a decent living fishing tournaments. Great video guys.
