Contest for the winning bait for the classic
« on: February 11, 2014, 05:16:59 PM »

You only get one pick same as last year. The first person to pick the winning bait gets one sent to them from me. Last year it was a Jig the year before it was an KVD 1.5 crank (i think). So get you best guess posted and lets have some fun with this.

I'm going with the lipless crankbait.  If I have to specify brand, I'd have to go with either a Red-Eye Shad or a Megabass Vibration-X.

My bad I thought we were picking who would win.  The winning bait will be an actual rattle trap.

From the look of the weather down there, I'm thinking minnow on a tip up.  Just because it hasn't been picked, square bill is my guess.

LiveTarget bait ball (only because it would justify your recent purchase of one or more of them)!

Well, well, well, will any one bait win. I doubt that any one will. Conditions will dictate what will be the bait for that day. I think a chatter bait will be a player, as well as some form of rattle trap, jig, and maybe even a big worm. The fish should be thinking about the move shallow, but with this weather they will be deeper and current related. They always position with the TVA. That being said, I am going with a deep diving crank bait.

if the water is still super cold (there was ice today there)
i'm going with the darkhorse - spoon or blade bait and a jerkbait

if it gets warm and sunny fast
swimbait or swimjig


either way i think a lipless will be a factor.

The new Smithwick Elite 8 jerkbait.
Near 60 degrees on Monday & staying in the 60's & almost 70 by Friday. They'll have 4-5 days of warm, stable weather before the Classic. Should make for a great event.
