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.
