Cutting Edge Smallmouth Tactics - John Murray

Share On :

West Coast Bassmaster Elite Series Pro angler John Murray discusses catching big smallmouth. On some bodies of water, they're the most fun to catch, and in a tournament situation on those bodies of water, the best chance you have at winning. John talks about the specifics of his favorite baits and techniques for catching smallmouth, including: dropshot, jerkbaits, spybaits, neko rig and carolina rig.

John answers a lot of questions about the difference between largemouth and smallmouth:

  • What are the differences in lure selection?
  • What are the differences in retrieve and lure presentation?
  • What's John Murray's secret color formula triggering smallmouth to bite, does it differ from the match-the-hatch technique so often used in largemouth fishing?
  • How to I land big aggressive smallies, particularly when using finesse techniques with light line and light wire hooks?

To everyone at Bass University, Thank you guys for all that you do! I signed up for a yearly subscription last year and learned so much from all of the seminars. It was so convenient to find seminars on every topic all in one place. Without Bass University I was always searching the internet to find out new tips and techniques but this really simplified things. I really appreciate you bringing this wealth of knowledge to us anglers so thanks again!
