YOUNG TAKES 3RD IN RUSTY WHITE CHARITY BASS CHALLENGE
Andrew Young and
partner Derrick Compton placed 3rd with over 17 pounds
in the Rusty White Charity Bass Challenge on Lake
Wiley, SC on Saturday, December 5. They
started out that morning on a point on the main
lake and had a few bites fishing the 6" Biobait
Finesse Worm in redbug on a drop shot and then
decided to move towards the bank because of
started throwing the 5" Biobait Trick Stick in
lay downs and brush piles. We were fishing it weedless
without a weight and dead sticking it around the
cover. The bite didn't last very long in the
clear water but we did manage to boat a few keepers.
We then made a move up the lake and pulled up on a
stretch of bank at the river channel. The water
was extremely muddy so we had to fish tight to cover
and there we caught our better fish. We caught
our fish with the combination of Klassic Lures
spinnerbait for the quick bite and slowed down with
the Biobait Trick Stick and picked apart the
cover. I feel like the bite in the muddy water
was from the vibration of the spinnerbait and the
scent of the Biobait Trick Stick. We
couldn't see our baits, but fish were inhaling
them. The Biobait product has been a big part of
my arsenal ever since I started fishing with it.
I can catch fish anywhere anytime and the
conditions just don't seem to matter." ... Andrew
Congratulations to Big Bite Pro Stephen
Fields on placing third this past
week in the Hooters HT Redfish Series. He used the bio
bait shrimp in new penny. He had his limit in 30
minutes. He noted that he only used one of the new
penny shrimp tails to catch 3 fish, proving just how
durable the baits are in the bio bait formula.

Matt Baty Takes Third on
Lake Eufaula with the "Fighting Frog"
Matt Baty and his partner fished the Media Bass tournament out of Lakepoint Marina on March 22. They had 18.78 pounds of fish and finished in third place. All fish were caught using the Big Bite Baits 4-inch Fighting Frog in Black/Blue color.
The team fished the frogs Texas-rigged on a 1/2-oz. Tungsten weight and pitched or flipped it to shallow cover. They reportedly boated over 40 fish using this bait on Lake Eufaula over the weekend. They had a limit by 7:57 in the morning and were culling by 8:30.
Lake Eufaula is hot right now and has been pretty much all year. Fish are extremely shallow with the muddy rising water. Matt recommends finding grass and dead lily pad stems in backwaters off of the main lake.
"We culled fish all day. This was one of the best days I have ever had on the water. It was a beautiful day, fish were biting, and we won money chasing little green fish around. Only in America! I tell you, sometimes we take for granted the things that God has truly blessed us with and I give him many thanks for creating such a wonderful place to enjoy the great outdoors!" Matt Baty

Cecil wins Stren Series event on Sam Rayburn Reservoir

March 21, 2009 JASPER, Texas — Pro Russell Cecil of Willis, Texas, caught a five-bass limit weighing 11 pounds, 14 ounces Saturday to win the Stren Series Texas Division tournament on Sam Rayburn Reservoir with a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 58-11. For his victory, Cecil earned $25,000 cash and a fully rigged Ranger boat.
Russell Cecil of Willis, Texas, finished second here last year and was in the same place after day one with 23 pounds, 4 ounces. He also found a consistent bite, and when he knew he had a 20-pound bag, he left that spot and looked for another that might produce as well. If he found it he didn’t say, but he did divulge his tactics: Carolina rigging an 6-inch lizard and flipping a Fighting Frog.
Lizard Fighting Frog
But while others were looking for fish moving up, Cecil is hitting on fish moving out. His entire bag consisted of long, skinny, spawned-out females.
He improved on Thursday's sack by 5 ounces on Friday, which was enough to vault him into first place with a two-day total of 46 pounds, 13 ounces.
With a 7-pound, 4-ounce lead heading into the final day, the tournament was his to lose. He’s a three-time winner of Texas bass tournaments. His last win came in 2007 at a Stren Series event on Toledo Bend. Prior to that he won two tournaments on the old Texas Tournament Trail.
“I knew I would be fishing tomorrow,” Cecil said after weighing in Friday, “but tomorrow’s another day. I’m going to go fishing and see what the bite dictates.”
When Friday’s bite changed, Cecil went with the flow. He wasn't alone in the area where he fished – indeed, at least eight of the top 10 pros are working the same general area – so he showed the fish something different: a Big Bite Swimming Minnow, which accounted for four of his fish. The other came on a Rat-L-Trap. He said he saw fish on beds, but chose to fish the 5- to 7-foot weedline he staked out.
“If I see a good one, I’ll go for it, obviously,” Cecil said. “I caught some off the beds today, but they all got culled out.”
“I changed up every day, but I don’t think I made the right changes today,” said Cecil, whose 11-pound final-day weight was almost half of each of his first two days’ weights. “Obviously there were more and more people on the water as the week went on. It wasn’t bad the first day, and I got mine real early the first day and got out of there. I came back in there about 2 p.m. just to see what it looked like, and there was Cody Bird and Scotty Villines … it was murderer’s row in there, and I thought, ‘Man, this is not good.’”
Cecil said he returned to his spot the second day of competition and caught fish early and caught two big ones at the end of the day. Cecil said he made the decision to return to his spot on the final day of competition even though he knew there were heavy stringers taken out of it the previous two days.
“It just all worked out,” Cecil said. “The Lord just blessed me. This was the worst day I had by far, but I had my big one on a swimbait before the sun really got up.”
Cecil said the swimbait was more productive for him than any sight-fishing techniques during the tournament. Cecil said he caught a few sight fish on the first day, a couple on the second day and none the third day of competition. Cecil said he flipped a creature bait at the few shallow sight fish he targeted.
Cecil opened the tournament in second place Thursday with five bass weighing 23-4. He then caught five bass weighing 23-9 Friday to make the crucial top-10 cut in first place. Creature
His best bait all week was a Big Bite swimming minnow.
