The Amazing Bladed Vibrating Jig

By Mark Lassagne At the Bassmasters Classic many years ago Guy Eaker was telling me about a small plate he put in front of his worm to make it shake back and forth (the Eaker Shaker). The bait looked great in the demo tank but to me it was just another lure. Guy was telling me about all the big fish he had caught on it.

clear lake by mark lassagne

A Lake for all Seasons

There’s a reason so many bass anglers consider Clear Lake to be their favorite water no matter the season, because it consistently kicks out quality fish. Its attraction however, goes beyond numbers in the livewell. This is lake, which on any given day, could produce the fish of a lifetime. Springtime is legendary for its swimbait-chewin’ hawgs. The summertime topwater and dropshot bites can be nothing short of phenomenal. Fall can turn into a crankbait/spinnerbait slugfest.
