As one of the newest lures to hit the market, X Zone Lures has been featured as a top lure for a second year in a row.
X Zone Lures Pro Brandon Lester finished an overall third place at St. Lawrence with the X Zone Slammer
Brandon Lester was favored as being the winner of the 2018 Huk Bassmaster Elite at the St.Lawrence River presented by Black Velvet, but a potential 6lb small mouth bass that popped off at the boat, cost him the win.
Using the X Zone Slammer Original Classic Hand Pour lure in color #309, his drop shot caught him some of the larger fish that he was able to put in the live well. After two days of fishing, Brandon led the pack of anglers with his 50lbs 1 ounce of bass.
Due to a strong current, the small mouth bass in the St. Lawrence are not only tough to catch but also to land as they are very strong and aggressive. Their fast actions and strong pull, tend to pop the hook a lot easier than other fisheries. Having a good hook set in the cartilage, helps the angler hold on to the fish to bring it to the boat.
Finishing in 3rd place at 94lb 1 ounce, Brandon took some time to show us exactly what worked for him during the tournament to help him land his winning small mouth bass.
