A quick tip for any angler who is looking to save some money. If you’re like me, you’ll have a large pile of torn and ripped soft plastic baits in the bottom of your boat at the end of a long day of fishing. I used to throw them away. Not anymore. There is a great product on the market called Mend-It. This glue fixes soft plastics like new. It isn’t like Super Glue that leaves the baits hard and usually stuck to your fingers. Mend-It leaves your baits as soft as when you pulled them out of the package. Plus, it doesn’t stick to your fingers. My Dad and I use this every time we fish. Do yourself and your wallet a favor. Try this great money saver, Mend-It. For more information, visit http://www.menditglue.com
Next time your having trouble getting those picky bass to bite your spinnerbait, try changing one or both of the blades to black nickle.

If you want to give bass a different look while using a buzz bait, try replacing the skirt with a tube or even a soft, plastic minnow bait. This will give the buzz bait a more minnow-like apperance and should give you a few more strikes. just remember to hang on!
Once while fishing in a bass tournament, I got in a hurry to retie a Texas rigged plastic worm. I inadvertently put the sinker on backward. I decided to try it anyway and the reversed sinker technique has since put a lot fish in my boat. With the sinker facing the wrong way I found I could cast over a fallen tree branch and ease the bait up to the limb. When the cup of the sinker hits the limb, it stops the forward progress of the bait, instead of simply sliding over and falling lifelessly to the bottom. With the sinker nudged tight against the limb, the worm rises upward making for an easy target for the bass. With subtle pulls and releases, I have found I can work a worm forever in one spot. This is a great technique for cold front bass or lure weary bass. With that bait staring them right in the eye for long periods, the bass simply have to strike.
