Re: Mike Long admits deceit behind bass record?

Somebody spent a lot of time interviewing his past partners and lake officials to write this article. I never knew he was banned from those tournament circuits.

Re: swimbait followers

As previously stated stopping and letting the fish get right under the bait works if you then go to a fast retrieve and they think it will get away, works good with floaters and Orso's work good and will do a 180.
