I know it has been a while since I have talked with you about New

made available at Bass Pro is a lip less Crankbait that is a must in your tackle box. It is called the Sexy

take your lure.
I know right now the weather is hot, but morning and
evenings are the time to go. The reason I am telling you this two weeks ago I was catching fish in the
morning and now they have changed to the evenings.
Be sure you let me know about how well the Sexy Shad
is working for you.
Keep the Hooks Wet!
