ZMan Lure Lands Halibut

“Everyone thinks halibut just sort of sit on the bottom like a doormat, sulking and waiting for a meal to swim along,” remarks Z-Man pro angler Miles “Sonar” Burghoff. “But when you watch ‘em on an underwater camera, you quickly discover these eccentric fish are anything but bottom feeders. In fact, they’re one of the coolest predators you’ll ever encounter—and if you want to experience an incredible halibut bite, amp up your approach with multifaceted ElaZtech® baits.” Recently, during his…

Angler Lands Bass

Largemouth bass famously cruise inside weedlines, slop, and thick salad for quick and easy meals. They also lurk deeper in cabbage, coontail, and milfoil beds and depth breaks doing the same thing.

It’s a reservoir system and there’s current that runs down the middle, so we’re careful when we go, always checking ice conditions. We also use GPS mapping on our phones and Humminbird units to make sure we’re off the…

If you’ve paid any attention to the progression of ice baits for lake trout, pike, and outsized walleyes, you’ve noticed that there’s a trend toward fishing big tubes for more and bigger fish. Especially with behemoth lake trout, anglers often choose tubes over spoons, blade baits, rattle baits, and even meat to chase their quarry, whether we’re talking laker factory Fort Peck, the Great Lakes, high-altitude waters, smaller stocked-trout lakes, or the pristine ice of Canadian provinces. Why? They just…
