This is the bait that caused. All the hoopla on the walleye tournament well. You guys have got a pretty good fish on behind. Me it's a representation of what this baits done Keith go bias chase Parsons. And myself had the bait. This summer took Keith. Ialong with the Berkley engineers about three years to develop. This bait you can see. This bait has got a very specific action. And it's one tens of thousands of dollars already the summer it's been the talk of the walleye tournament world the competition will. You deal with a company. That tweak and play. And tweak complete and change the action. And movies are on your name. It until we get them to really rock. This is the best of my life. This is awesome it's called the Berkeley Flickr middle it's gonna come in two sizes at first with. Many sizes later but. This is the bait you can see.
We just barely use one today. And it's all scratched up from. All the fish that we've caught so it's Flickerman. All by Berkley proofs in the pudding here. These guys have been doing it.

It go guys todayI'm going to be reviewing the bass pro shops XPS professional series deep diving middle. This is just you can get. Neither floating nor suspending this particular. Igotten suspending it's mainly for my winter tackle box but. Iwill use it for other things as well in my opinion Bass Pro Shops hasn't had the best lineup compared to a lot of other big companies. Ireally like Strike King I like rapala. Ilike River to see so bass pro shops really doesn't have quality compared to those baked companies but. They really do have a low price. This was only seven dollars a seven dollar lure which. You can get around the same price maybe a little bit. More with the other companies. That mmm a lot of companies will charge fifteen to twenty dollars for a suspending jerk bait like. This here but you want. Something that's low budget. You don't really have to spend a lot of money. This bass pro shops lineup really is good. They don't they're not terrible um but down as good as. Some other dates this is the first really. This is the 2nd or 3rd bass pro shops. And fate that I've actually gotten it's pretty good, so we'll see. It lines up against. Some other baits we'll look at the specs the color my only have. One color here some other stuff so yeah let's get into.
It so here we have the bass pro shops XPS professional series deep diving minnow against a strike king Kevin VanDam series jerky. Ireally really like. This jerk bait here. This is probably my favorites. Ireally do like Kevin VanDam. Itaste probably my favorite professional so size comparison. You can see I said they're about the same Kevin VanDam jerk bait is a little bit thicker a little bit fatter. Ireally do like the eyes on. One is about the same size as. You see it's more of a minnow shape compared to. This just being kind of am a. More of a classic jerk bait look. You can see the difference in the bills here. Ithink only dives to three. Or four feet while the xbox will guide down to seven which.
Ireally you know I do like. These your baits but. Ihad to choose I definitely choose the Kevin VanDam series so. This color is called gold XXX shed its kind of like a sexy shad color. They call it gold XXX shad get. Some gold in there they're pretty it's pretty standard color as. You can see you got the long bill there the max diving depth on. This according to bass pro shops website is seven foot so. This can get you down to find those cold water baths. If you're not fishing something too deep seven foot is just fine for me. Ifish mostly in rivers sometimes in ponds. And lights but mostly rivers so. This goes deep enough for me to find cold water bath. This is a three and a half inch bait so it's fairly large you're you're going to be attracting things. That aren't too small especially. You get into a warm split. This will definitely bring out the cold water bath.
This is 38 38 ounce so. It really isn't heavy. You pick it up it's not heavy at. All for its size it feels just regular. And yeah like this is gold xxx added. You can see you have the top is kind of like a metallic silver gun metal type color then. You have some silver up at the top with your black dot the yellow. And then some gold tint in there as well. And then you have the eyes which the eyes are they're pretty good. They give it a nice look. And they're pretty realistic. This is a the hook size on the one. This particular bait is number six foot hook size, so they're not too big they're actually kind of small I've seen a lot bigger on. This type they are. They don't bend you push on them during optimized durable hooks. That I've ever seen they're not very they're not very mm thick but. They will definitely not rip off. You snatch a big bass so yeah. This was the review of the best pro shops XPS professional series deep diving mail.
You can find my bass pro shops for around seven dollars um they're really good. Ifished with it is a guarding a couple winter bass for me so. You enjoy this video please comment rate. And subscribe thanks.

Everybody Mike Iaconelli here want to talk a little bit about jerk bait fishing I have a classic in my hand it's the Rapala husky jerk man. This is the bait of choice for me. When the water gets really cold we're talking about late fall through early spring and. All the way through the winter months. That water gets cold. This is the bait I'm going to choose. And the main reason is. Because it's action is not as wide as say an X-ray it's a tighter action it's a. More neutral action. And that's the way I'm going to fish. This thing in those cold water conditions. Iwant to mimic the bait. Iwant to mimic what the bait fishes. And the forwards are doing. That time of the year. When the water's cold so. It out I'm going to reel. That bait down a little bit get. It dive and then I'm gonna put. Some little twitches into. It followed by a really long cause.
You know it's not uncommon for me. When I'm fishing the husky jerk to pause. It 5 10 15 evens up to 20. And 30 seconds and just let. That date sit want to pause. Iwant to shake it a couple. More times jerk and then. Another long pause and that's a real key motion. When the waters cold. And again the husky jerk isn't going crazy it's smaller movements. And then it pauses. It almost sits neutral buoyancy. That water gets cold. When those fish we get lethargic I'm going to reach for the Rapala husky turn.

We'll stick chef this bait comes available with four different models to fish shallow to deep. One of the famous features of the stick chef happens to be its unique power keel design the power keel is going to allow for immediate reaction in the water. It works similar like a sharkskin to create unique turbulences around the baits belly that's going to reduce the friction in the water to ease the motions. And allow the stick. She had to glide through the water the stick shad has superior cast ability allowing the angler to throw. This bait in a variety of conditions. And slack water to high winds there's. Several reasons why the stick shad happens to be Patrick's Appeals number. One go-to bait the bait is so versatile. You can fish it literally shallow. One of the most successful ways I'm using the stick shad happens to be a hard twitch pause retrieve jerking the sticks add similar like the jerk bait will produce a lot of strikes for you simply don't let the look of the stick shad pull. Though the bait does not have a lip. It still has a unique accident in the water it'll Drive. Many of the fish wild walking the dog is as well. Another very popular way to fish the stick shad.
Now in the past walking the dog means. That you're retrieving a top water lure. Although the stick shad is available in pop water. Now walk the dog on. All four models when you're around inactive fish. Many times slow small twitches will produce active strikes. You have fish that are following the sticks have but simply not attacking it. Many a time to stop. And go retrieve is the answer.
Rapala® X-Rap® Deep
The original ex rap brought slash bait technology to the top five feet of the water column. Now Rapala slashes the depth barrier with the new ex rap deep ten. It brings all the same acts rap features. You depend upon in the shallows down deep. Where the big ones look out of. All the new lures that Rapala has introduced in the past couple of years. And they're all awesome. Most excited about it lends itself to my style fishing more just eight on eight pound test line will go somewhere between eight. And ten foot and the magic about the bait is in coal super cold pre spawn conditions. You can get this lure down. That deep and fish. It as slows as you want. And keep that depth. Imean triggering all those giant pre spawn bass to buy. When you're jerking this bait down. It down in that eight to ten foot of water. And actually what this bait does is as. You jerk it has an erratic motion about the every second. Or third jerk it actually turns straight around. And look straight at the fish. Imean it's the most incredible action you've never seen a bait like. It you're almost making these fish feed on. This bait which is you know in the fishing business that's like magic. You can make a you can actually make a fish bite.
You want to what this lure will do for you is a preschool conditions. When the water temperature could the ex wrapped deep ten comes in thirteen popular fresh water colors to cover a wide range of fish species. And water conditions. It features the same textured translucent body an internal holographic foil as. All X wraps to create a realistic portrayal of the little fish. That bigger fish like to eat. And no doubt about it Rattler's classic feather tail trigger strikes then the premium pyramid point hooks take over sticking deep. And holding on for dear life. Once the fish is on its on for good. You know one of the things. You really notice about.
These two X wraps is a difference in the lip. One of the key things. When your bias fishing is to get the bait to run the depth of the fish are. If they're in like say a 4 to 7 8 foot zone usually. This short limp is going to get down there to cover. That type of water if they get real deep on. Some of these Clearwater lakes. And the fish are actually coming out of maybe 15. Or 20 little waters. When it's real cold that's longer lift. We usually get down there to. That ten eleven twelve foot zone. You pause they can come up to the bait. And that's what makes a jerk bait so good. He pumped the part on. That thing I have to let. It sits a long time these fish are real sluggish here gonna let. That thing just sit there well. He nailed get it down to take. You about four or five six turns on. That handle and get him started down there. And then just give him three.
Or five little short pops straight down with. That rod that does is. That makes that big dive then just let him sit there slash-and-burn then pause for jobs I'll let. It sits that's something about the way. It is bringing extreme attitude. And hard cutting aggressive darting action to a standstill down deep in their face then down their throat look out below you.
