Casey Scanlon – PAA Table Rock Recap

Bucks Skeeter Yamaha

ScanlonBlogHeaderTime for a little recap from my last tournament of the year.  I placed third in the PAA event at Table Rock and it feels great to get a good late season finish. I caught my fish with a few different baits throughout this tournament.  I primarily threw topwater poppers and frogs, but switched to a 3/8oz Luck-E-Strike jig with a matching Luck-E-Strike Guido Bug trailer when the topwaters failed to produce.  I ran a lot of water with my Nitro/Mercury boat and fished several rocky banks and boat docks.  I kept my MotorGuide trolling motor on high all day and fished as much water as possible.

When I fished my topwaters, my equipment was critical in getting the keeper bass into the boat. I threw a 7’6 medium heavy RaZr Rod with heavy braid and high speed Bass Pro Shops Johnny Morris Carbonlite Reels. 
Running a lot of water in the fall is a good way to increase your chances to cross paths with bass, it helped me at Table Rock and will help you on your favorite body of water.
