There isn’t a freshwater fish that won’t eat an insect. The Mayday Mayfly flat out fools them. More times than not, the Mayfly is the big fish bait of the day when targeting pan fish. While live bait may get you more bites, these catch quality and when you get a bite, you won’t need a bobber to tell you so.

My family has a cabin in northern Wisconsin, and this is where it all began. The lakes we fish are deep, clear, natural lakes with populations of smallmouth and largemouth bass. Initially we didn’t have any electronics and usually fished from a pontoon or a 14 foot johnboat. This meant that I had to learn quickly as to where the fish moved throughout the year instead of depending on electronics to find them. I spent a lot of time snorkeling and diving these lakes to find where the fish were. I also read every article that the Linder's and In-Fisherman had on seasonal movements of fish.

Do-it has a wide variety of worm molds and they all have a time and place for every fish. There are times when the fish want a real slow presentation. One of my favorite baits for this set up is the 6 inch finesse crawler in the essential series. This soft plastic mold has five cavities that allow you to make up a bunch quick.

Dual, twin, laminate colors, whichever you prefer to call it, is the process of injecting two colors at once. This offers bait makers the ability to imitate natural forages that our game species target. It also allows us to make some pretty wild stuff. Depending on the clarity and forage in the body of water I am fishing that day, I could be shooting baits to imitate a shiner, bluegill, crawfish, or something bright that is sure to grab the attention of fish in water with poor visibility.

Have you ever been crappie fishing and suddenly the crappie that was on fire yesterday, or as recent as earlier that day, is now barely eating your jig? You feel a thump and a bump, set the hook, and nothing is there. That doesn’t happen just once or even three times but a bunch of times that day. The thought comes to mind to go smaller and lighter, but there are two problems — its 10 MPH winds gusting 13-15 MPH, and you’re fishing 15-feet deep. The 1/8th oz. jig head is the perfect weight, but the big bait is not the ticket.

I’ve been honored to be a part of Do-It molds for 3 years now, but really my Christmas gift when I was 12 years old was when it all started. That year was when I got the materials and lead pouring supplies to start making my own crappie and white bass jigs. Fifteen years have passed an my mold collection has grown substantially and in my co-angler days on the FLW Tour, I was always the guy known for having the extra shaky heads and drop shot weights.
In today’s world, it’s all about having your own theme or customizing everything. You can customize your Xbox 360, your desktop, even your iPhone. Why not customize your plain, dilapidated casting or jigging spoons. Just look at them, spoons may be the most unappealing lure anglers fish with…for real, though they hardly look realistic. Just think of how many more fish you could catch by customizing them. Why not put scale pattern decals, 3-D eyes, or a feather dressed tail on them? No doubt about it, the customized spoon will catch more fish.
