  11. Try out "The Dragon" ( Firetiger Chatterbait with a Creme Lures split tail trailer) at your favorite waterways. It's been catching alot of fish for ...more me lately.

    1. John Fitch
      Noah, basically bass fishing anywhere is structure oriented. Attack any hard structure you see like docks, trees, spillway pipes if applicable, anything that cast ...more a shadow. And in between that hard structure hit the points and grassy areas. The problem is what size lake it is. The smaller the lake the easier it is to catch fish from the bank because they are more concentrated in water you can reach from the shore. After that start studying Bass seasonal patterns.
    2. John Fitch
      Yep a Dunamis "Series One" rod. Best $100 rod on the Market and it comes with a %100 No Hassle Lifetime Warranty Like the old All Stars had before they ...more sold their soul to Shakespeare. LOL. Actually even better because you don't need a warranty card.
    3. Derek Herring
      The rod is a Dunamis Series One.
    4. What brand of rod is that, it looks sweet!
    5. Hey quick question how do you find points of interest on a lake that you have never been to and you can not wade or have a boat?
    6. Derek Stitt
      I love chatterbait s, all year round.
    7. Derek Herring
      That's a pretty rod!!
