Project Z: Breaking Down the Bite, Episode 3

Elite Series pro Stephen Browning battles tough fishing conditions and explains everything you need to know about a popular Midwest finesse fishing tactic.

the third video in the new Breaking Down the Bite web series follows Bassmaster Elite pro Stephen Browning as he deals with notoriously tough fishing conditions: a calm, clear day with nary a breath of wind.  After several fruitless hours using conventional power fishing techniques, Browning turns to Midwest finesse tactics—aka the ‘Ned Rig’—by pairing a buoyant Hula StickZ™ soft bait with the new Finesse ShroomZ™ Weedless jighead to garner a solid bite from locked down largemouth.  The video details Browning’s choice of tackle, retrieve, hookset, and fighting technique to school anglers on the finer points of this increasingly popular ultra-finesse technique.
