  • Christmas fishing tip for blades!

    A Christmas fishing tip for all of my fishing buddies when throwing a Silver Buddy type bait.

    Anyone who has fished a blade knows the familiar thump they feel when a fish smacks your silver buddy/vault blade bait. But when the bass aren’t aggressive and their noses are pinned to the bottom, then bumping bottom and keeping the bait in the strike zone as long as possible is the name of the game. Thats what I’ve had to do with the blade bait lately to get bit. Retrieving a Vault Blade bait ever so slowly letting it vibrate, yet keeping it in contact with the bottom. I’m going to call it “ Nose Walking a Silver Buddy”. The bites are unbelievably subtle! They normally miss it on their first try so I’ll kill it...a lot of times they will pick it off the bottom after I’ve killed it, or they’ll grab it once I start retrieving the bait again.
