At Dobyns Rods, we build models for every technique bass anglers need to employ. Sometimes, they’re making short, precise casts, flips, pitches or skips to specific targets; other times, they’re launching baits long distances. It’s important to develop your skills at all presentations, but I think the long cast is something that doesn’t always get enough attention.
Gary Dobyns loves the spring season; but not only for the warming weather — he’s more enamored with the seasonal bass movement that increases the levels of both quality and quantity. No doubt, the prespawn is the time to punch your ticket on a whopper and the renowned rod maker is all about maximizing his opportunities.
Tournament fishermen are notorious for remaining tight-lipped about particular baits that they believe provide them a competitive advantage. Well, one of my favorite Yamamoto baits actually fits that description. A lot of guys consider it a secret weapon, but I want to tell you that the Fat Ika is definitely a bait you want to have in your boat.
