Another bait that Jacob Wheeler used to win the Forest Wood Cup was Trigger X Flippin Tube. This bait is used for catching bass in heavy cover. It can be purchased in a variety of colors and is made of a phthalate free soft plastic composition. This bait is salt infused which gives it the benefit of having better taste, scent and weight. As the angler retrieves this bait, this bait releases pheromones that attract the bass. Retrieving bass on a Pflueger President Casting reel and rod with this bait is sure to make any angler happy with his catch.
Chatterbait has been around for a long time but was not considered a favorite bait of the angler because it broke so easily. With recent improvements, this bait has become a favorite with many bass anglers. Just recently, Jacob Wheeler won the Forest Wood Cup using Chatterbait. Chatterbait comes in a variety of colors and sizes. This bait has the action of three baits in one. Think of it as a crankbait, jig, and spinner bait all in one. It swims like wounded prey and can be used in deep or shallow water to catch bass. The metal blade on this bait creates a flash and a vibrating noise as it is retrieved. Try using this bait on a Pflueger Patriarch rod and reel combo set.
