Enter to win one of 50 prizes in the Seaguar Zona Smackdown contest, including the grand prize of a fun-packed, all-expenses-paid fishing adventure with Mark Zona, one of the most knowledgeable, entertaining, and influential anglers in the entire fishing industry. 

“I’ve been told that I’m a little intense in the water,” noted Zona while chasing bronzebacks in his home state of Michigan. “Well, one of you is going to win a fishing trip with me, so you can witness that intensity for yourself. And when you step into the boat, you’ll be throwing the best braided line on the planet: Seaguar Smackdown!”

Lefebre Says Wake Baits Draw Big Strikes

Rapala Pro Dave Lefebre loves to have a BX Waking Minnow on his line.

“It’s the [bait] that I won Smith Lake in Alabama a couple years ago,” LeFebre says. “It’s the one that I catch a lot of big fish on.”

Lefebre threw a Blue Back Herring pattern Rapala BX Waking Minnow to win the FLW Tour’s 2015 tournament on Smith Lake with a four-day total of 20 bass weighing 65 pounds, 5 ounces. He targeted shallow largemouth in the backs of creeks, where shoreline brush and submerged boulders came together.

BASS Report

Jerry McKinnis, former B.A.S.S. co-owner, founder of JM Associates, and a legend in the fishing industry, passed away early Sunday morning.

He had been in the hospital for six weeks, dealing with an infection that cropped up after a fishing trip in Wyoming. McKinnis was 82 years old.

McKinnis, along with Don Logan and Jim Copeland, purchased B.A.S.S. from ESPN in 2010, and then sold controlling interest in the organization to Anderson Media in the fall of 2017. He was the leader of JM Associates, producing award winning television and Internet shows about fishing and the outdoors. McKinnis was also the beloved host of “The Fishin’ Hole” television series, which ran on ESPN for 44 years.

McKinnis was a member of the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame, the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, and the International Game Fish Association Hall of Fame.
