The slap bass technique has become increasingly popular in the last several years since it has now crossed over from its funk roots into the pop and rock scene. In fact, I have seen many bass swimming along underneath and behind walking baits. So I cast out, let it splash loudly like a feeding bass and immediately start the zigzag retrieve with no hesitation. Often, the bass will be zigzagging its own head from side to side, trying to get a better look at a walking bait from the left and from the right.
I ended up qualifying for the two day championship, but due to money issues I chose not to fish it. At that point I realized how expensive this sport is. In February 2009 I attended the BASSMASTER Classic in Shreveport, LA. A good friend and fishing mentor of mine, Ken Baumgardner (Bummy) had qualified for it through the Federation.
In short, a properly trained Bass player will have a range of techniques at their disposal with which to hold a chord, and sustain the listeners’ interest. These suspended bass are deeper than the average crankbait can reach them, but not so deep that a crankbait swimming in the 8-10 foot range can’t entice them.
The POP-MAX is one of the very best bass lures that Megabass offers, and it is relatively hard to get / hard to find. If you play notes on the bass guitar fretboard and your index finger plays the notes on the fourth fret you are playing in the fourth position.
I still know weekend anglers as well as pro anglers who miss about 70% of their strikes on the jig because they set the hook to late. From starter guitars to pro microphones and amps, the online music shop has a huge range of music equipment available. He meant the White Falcon guitar to only be a presentation piece for the 1955 NAMM convention, and not an instrument in the Gretsch lineup.
