Lee ?? s lures for spring ?? s ?? lipstick ?? big mouth
(Editor’s note: This short article is from Alan McGuckin of Dynamic Sponsorships.)
Let’s be perfectly clear: Jordan Lee has never been to cosmetology school. But when the big mouth he catches in early spring seems to have lipstick on his mandibles, he knows exactly what color to cast, and few work better than a vibrating jig or spinnerbait.
?? It seems like a lot of the bass you catch in early spring have those red lips either digging for crayfish in the rocks or munching on lots of red colored crayfish. I don’t know which one, but they seem to really like the lures with red and orange on them, ?? said the Carhartt pro.
With water temperatures often in the 40s or 50s, many anglers are inclined to fish very slowly, but Lee advises continuing to cover the water at a constant rate near obvious spawning grounds very close to an access. in deep water like a major stream channel.
?? I tend to grab the Colorado blade spinnerbait with the orange / red kicker blade whenever the water is quite dirty and still in the high 40s, ?? Lee said. ?? With the # 5 Hildebrandt blade I put in there, it has a ton of resistance to allow you to really slow down and keep it in the strike zone longer.
As the water temperature rises a notch in the 1950s, few lures compete with a vibrating jig. And few anglers will have a day that rivals the six bass totaling 36 pounds Lee caught at an MLF event on Lake Eufaula, Alabama in February 2020 with a vibrant jig. Two of these basses were 8 pounds.
?? The bait I tied in this photo is the exact bait I grabbed this insane sack on. A vibrating jig is just a simple pre-spawn fish catcher and it’s literally my favorite pre-spawn bait on the planet, ?? punctuates Lee.
He throws it on an Abu Garcia Revo STX 7.3: 1 reel wound with 17lb Berkley Trilene 100% fluorocarbon.
Take a close look, however, at the Chigger Craw trailer with which he dresses the vibrant jig. Yeah, you got it, Lee takes an extra minute to dye the pliers orange. Do everything to make his spring lures look a little more like crawdads ?? much like a bass fishing lure cosmetologist.
