Strike King pro Mark Menendez finds December to be one of the best times to fish in Zone 3.
“The falling water temperature will dictate the location of bass, with mainlake being the most preferred area,” shares Menendez.
If the water is clear, Menendez prefers the Blue Shad. In stained water, he switches to the White. For muddy water, Menendez will favor a Chartreuse White.
A great choice for clear water scenarios, the Strike King Baby Burner Spinnerbait is a premium, down-sized spinnerbait with a thin-cut willow blade design to spin faster and cause less drag than traditional willow blades.
Menendez’s choice for clear water is the Chartreuse Sexy Shad, while he opts for Sexy Shad if the water is stained. In muddy water, Menendez reaches for a Chili Craw.
A small-bodied deep diver, the Series 3 is designed to enhance castability, thus reaching maximum depths.
He opts for the Candy Craw in clear water, and switches to a Green Pumpkin Purple Swirl if the water is stained.
Menendez sticks with a Pearl in clear, stained, and muddy water.
The Strike King Z-Too jerkbait answers the needs of the small circle of anglers who want a smaller presentation than the standard jekrbait. Z-Too floats higher, is more flexible (translation: it has a killer shimmy), and is far more durable.
He opts for Pearl in clear water. If the water is stained or muddy, he will throw the Pearl Chartreuse.
The Rage Tail Grub features a unique and exclusive tail design is engineered like no other soft plastic bait for superior performance and lifelike presentations.
