Howell jumped from 11th place to claim the title while using the signature “dive-to” series lure. But is the lure really that great for catching bass?
During a recent afternoon fishing expedition with my buddy, Brendan, I set out with a trio of the lures to see just how much bass would target it.
The day started out with three quick catches on the lure, as I pulled in two bass and a nice-sized bluegill right off the bat. We then hit an afternoon lull for a couple hours where the fish just refused to bite on anything, followed by a flurry of action. At around sunset, the bass literally began swarming this lure. Brendan, who also was using the lure, caught a bass on one cast, then caught another on his very next cast.
