Congrats to Strike King and Lew’s Pro Tristan McCormick on a Great Finish at the Bassmaster Southern Open

The Team at Strike King is pleased to see one of the newest members of their Pro Staff bring home a hard-fought victory on South Carolina’s famed Lake Hartwell this weekend. As expected, the Bassmaster Southern Open fished a typically tough seasonal pattern on Hartwell.

As you gear up to take on Fall bass in your fishery, the arsenal of lures that led to Tristan’s First Place Finish will be a great choice for your next outing.

 

Strike King Sexy Dawg

A remarkable lure when bass are feeding on schooling baitfish in the fall. The walking motion of the Sexy Dawg is hard to ignore, and the bait is easy to fish. Watch for surface activity, fire off the Sexy Dawg toward the commotion of fleeing baitfish, and hold on tight.

 

Strike King Caffeine Shad

Tristan picked up the Caffeine Shad when feeding spots were slow to react to the Sexy Dawg. This lure works magic when twitched through schooling fish just below the surface at a fast pace. Some anglers prefer a slower “twitch-and-pause” pace, while others burn it just below the surface for quick reaction strikes. Let the fish tell you how to work the Caffeine Shad.

 

Strike King Filler Worm

One of Strike King’s new offerings revealed at the 2022 ICAST, the Filler Worm is a lethal soft plastic when you rig it on the business end of a drop shot. Tristan worked the filler worm above a 3/8-oz tungsten weight and 2/0 hook. It is a finesse approach, but as Tristan proved on Hartwell, the Filler Worm can fill a live well with big bass.
