We got through phases throughout our fishing career; catching lots of fish, catching big fish, catching hard- to-catch fish, you get the idea.  If you happen to be in that last phase, this article (and this fish) isn’t for you.

It’s been said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. For years I have approached tournament fishing utilizing that very game-plan, and to some extent I have been successful. I have a couple of team and a BFL angler of the year crowns, but the events I’ve fished have been one or two day events, usually on lakes and rivers that I have significant experience on.

April 3, 2015

In a pre-season preview of this year’s Elite Series schedule, I predicted the Sabine River event would yield low weights and high fuel bills. In the end, that prediction held true. With the exception of those who found a concentration of bedding fish near take-off, the rest of us were forced to make long runs in order to find fishable water.

Hawk's Take On Soft Swimbaits - Smaller Profiles Carry Big Potential in the Right Scenarios

E-mail Print PDF

By David A. Brown

April 8, 2015

With his roots in California, Bassmaster Elite Series pro Kevin Hawk is no stranger to big swimbaits. Even though he now makes his home in Guntersville, Ala., Hawk has lost no faith in his heavy weight swimbaits – he simply recognizes the wisdom of appropriate scale.

There are times – and places – when/where big fish are so keyed up for a jumbo meal that they’ll swing the hammer on your big bait and knock slack in your line.

But that’s not all the time. Hawk said he’s found the appropriate times for smaller soft plastic swimbaits as follows:

How the D-Shad Helped Me Win at Smith Lake

By Dave Lefebre

April 2, 2015

I’ve been blessed with multiple wins over the course of my professional fishing career. Short of winning the Forrest Wood Cup, I didn’t think that anything could surpass my victory at the 2009 Toyota Texas Bass Classic at Lake Conroe. I was wrong, though. My FLW Tour win on Alabama’s Smith Lake last week was every bit as meaningful, if not more. I’ve made no secret of the fact that recent months have been stressful for me, but a series of small miracles kept accumulating and culminated in this big win.

While my life has been in flux, one thing that has remained constant is that I always have the Yamamoto D-Shad rigged and ready in my rod locker. It might be fished weightless, or on the back of some other lure, but it’s always there. I haven’t been able to talk about it much because it has never produced a win for me on its own, but it certainly has produced a number of key fish that boosted me to higher finishes. At Smith, it produced seven of the fish that I took to weigh-in over the course of four days, and without it I could not have won.
