Slow Your Lure Fall Rate for More Bass

Getting "reaction strikes" has been all the craze in bass fishing, but there's a definite time and place to SLOW DOWN. Wired2Fish President Terry Brown shows us when and how with one of his favorite lures.

There's no question that burning a bait by a bass can elicit a reaction strike, but more often than not, a subtle easy-to-catch meal is preferred. This video is all about slowing down your fall rate. This keeps the lure in the strike zone longer, prevents burying the bait in weed or wood cover where it may fowl, and forces you to fish slower. Terry Brown takes us back to the old school with the Gene Larew Salt Craw, a 30 year old salted plastic that has a subtle and seductive action and fall. Rig it on the proper weighted hook, and this presentation shines when worked slowly through grass, wood and around riprap.
