ishing with Tackle Warehouse and BASS Elite Angler Jared Lintner (continued)


Jared’s boat was chock full of Powell rods, and most were rigged with spook type lures, Jackall crankbaits, or Picasso jigs. Jared explained that he liked the power and sensitivity offered by Powell rods, and that both the company’s graphite and glass rods have served him well during the tour.


Jared walks the dog with a Reaction Innovations Vixen

While Jared’s strengths are fishing shallow pitching and flipping jigs he also specializes in fishing topwater. He worked a Reaction Innovations Vixen with rhythmic perfection and with each line slap on the water the Vixen surged back and forth in a perfect walk the dog fashion.

Rich turns to his favorite technique, topwater

Within minutes he had a few fish boated, and over a dozen short strikes. “These little spots, they hit but they aren’t even big enough to get their mouths around the bait,” Jared commented. I tied on a Megabass Vision 110 and followed behind Jared picking up a few undersized spots, the average topping out right at the 10 inch mark. “There are a ton of these fish in this lake now,” Jared remarked “Let’s hit the docks to see if we can get a largemouth to come out.”

Jared and Zander pound the docks

Jared had just returned from the Lone Star Shootout at Falcon Lake, where he placed in the money, and the Battle on the Border at Lake Amistad where he weighed in 31.12lbs. He talked about the toughest part of being on tour being the travel, and how anglers on the tour had to tow their boats from event to event. This is especially tough for Jared as he is based here on the west coast and the Elite Series is concentrated in the east this year.

Rich continues to work a variety of topwater lures

Today at Nacimiento we were fishing on Jared’s newest boat, the same one that he uses for all tour events. His boat’s wrap was still showing scars from the dense thorny brush at Falcon. I asked what his favorite lake to fish was and he quickly answered “Clear Lake,” but added that the fishing at Falcon was downright incredible.
