When fishing pressure is high, anglers need to be flexible on the baits they throw to generate bites. Finicky fish require finesse presentations that look ultra-realistic, and new Flex Worm delivers, with lifelike movement that they cannot resist. Relying on an innovative manufacturing process that allows for perfection in bait lamination, the Flex Worm brings premium color features to a finesse style bait.
Pro Scott Dobson of Clarkston brought a five-bass limit to the scales Saturday weighing 18 pounds, 9 ounces to win the three-day Toyota Series at the Detroit River.
Dobson's three-day total of 15 bass weighing 59-3 earned him the win by a 1-pound, 7-ounce margin over second-place angler Troy Stokes of Brownstown, Michigan, and earned Dobson the top payout of $27,534 in the third and final tournament of the 2020 Toyota Series Northern Division.
Zoom Bait Company’s Brush Hog, one of the most popular creature baits on the planet, have traditionally come in Tiny, Baby, and Standard sizes. For some situations, however, the Baby is a bit small and the Standard is just a bit too large. For that reason, Zoom is releasing a new Mid-Size Brush Hog to split the difference.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Halfway through Day 1 of the Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk, North Carolina pro Hank Cherry fell and injured his right arm.
For a moment, he thought it might even be broken.
But Cherry powered through the pain — and with only one good arm, he caught five bass that weighed 29 pounds, 3 ounces to take the lead at the 50th edition of the Super Bowl of Professional Bass Fishing. Competition is taking place on Lake Guntersville with weigh-ins at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex.
Cherry said his injury, which occurred as he was reaching down to grab a fish, would likely require a visit to a local doctor — but it wouldn’t keep him from fishing Saturday morning.
“I didn’t expect to catch them like this at all,” Cherry said. “What I caught my fish on was actually plan B. But it’s plan A now, for sure.”
Believing the location and structure he was fishing were the real key to his success, Cherry made no secret of the bait he was using. He said he started with a lipless crankbait, but the high winds kept a loop in his line and made it hard for him to maintain proper contact with the bait.
“That’s why I switched to a bladed jig,” he said. “It just made more sense for the conditions we were fishing, and it turned out to be the perfect choice.”
