[music stinger] [splash] Good morning folks I am John shaw on Lake Mohave it’s on the Arizona, Nevada border and we’re fishing this morning with Garry Garland from Canyon lures. Garry what about this Lake here we’re gonna do anything today or what Bud. Well John I think we will we got a little wind if it doesn’t come up too strong it’s just a nice little chop and I think fishing should be pretty good alright. we had a great time a Laughlin last night. we’re going to catch some fish this morning we’ll be right back. you stay put. [music stinger] Garry you want to show the folks at home me included what we’re going to use today here ok John we’re going to start out here with a spider jig. I will rig one of these up for you it’s a double tail and then as split skirt on both ends and it’s just a jig head with a keeper way down and this works for two skirts on there like that. what’s that about a half ounce. This is a half once right here the grub part on these double tails are a little bit long so I like to the hook to come right out the end. Therefore the tails won’t tangle up. so I will pinch about a half inch of that thing off of there that grub and I put that..oop droped it there. I will side that double tail up skirt up there that spider skirt and it looks just like that and then we will hook this Double tail right on behind it here, slide it up and down to the end there make sure thats hanging good and straight there you got a real good bass lure there the famous spider jig huh. that’s spider jig look at that folks. We will be throwing that mostly this morning that’s going to work the best I think this time of year. Not particularly that color we’ve probably go to the shad colors would work a little better than that, that’s a pumpkin pepper green glitter real good stuff. real good stuff Garland famous spider jig what else to we have here. ok we are also going to fish this is fatsy this is tube type lure then we use a insider head this particular size there’s a quarter ounce because we’re going to be fishing down maybe 25, 30 foot this morning we will just move the skirts apart and slide it up in there..right to the end and then just poke the eye of the hook thought and your are in business that’s the famous Gizit that you and your brother Bob come out with many years ago huh this is my brother’s gizit and I call mine the fatsy alright got a new color you have there this relatively new it’s a smoked salt and pepper with a red glitter and it’s a I found it to be an excellent color up on Mead the other thing I noticed is you are using spinning tackle to throw these jigs. You know I think.. form other spinning fishermen here. Yeah I think a lot of guys are going more to the spinning tackle and I’ve always thrown it especially since I developed tennis elbow throwing the bait caster an awful lot of years ago so I love to throw it spinning cast spinning cast that’s 6..8 pound test line. good for all those people who always give me a bad time about always using spin he uses it too. So let’s go get some fish. alright let’s do to. Let’s try it come on folks For some who has never fished the spider jig before can you explain to the folks at home how you would do it well I ah.. go up to a point and probably on either side of it if there is a little shaded pocket I well throw in there and you got to watch your line all the time, you’ve got to because most of the bites they come when that bait is falling and anyway I well fish that little shaded pocket and if there is nothing there then I’ll put it right on that point and work it out to maybe a depending on the time of year but maybe a start out about 10 foot and go down to 35.. 40 foot deep and try to find the depth of these fish. but, uh I guess it probably represents a crawfish so any lake that has any crawfish it’s going to work well little bit breezy out here in the lake here. yes it sure is alright here it is! there he is and pretty nice fish too. come on these jigs work. That is a good one John he feels pretty good the old spider jig come on, come on I knew you would great one on that sooner or later. Ya you were right Garry. come on oh..Whoa! were the heck is he? oh is he stuck back there. what did he do it hung up on ya he is hung up somewhere back there.

Oh I would love that one in a tournament especially up here at Mohave you said it not that many fish up here anymore. well the quality is good but there’s not quite as many as there used to be.
