Insights from the Anglers

Jacob Wall

  1. Lessons Learned from MLF Stage 1 and 2:
    • “FFS is changing the game, providing insight into bass movements and behavioral patterns. Designing baits tailored for this technology is crucial for success.”
  2. Adjustments Between Stages:
    • “My approach remained focused on FFS, targeting offshore suspended fish in Stage 1 and isolated hard cover in Stage 2. FFS allows for different approaches based on conditions.”
  3. Effective Duckett Rod Models:
    • “I use the 7’0 M Micro Magic Pro for finesse with a parabolic bend, and the 7’0 M JW Signature Series for structure. The 6’9 M Wheeler Select jerkbait rod is phenomenal, and the Pro Series 7’3 MH is versatile for a range of techniques.”
