Bassin' Jigs

Travis Frank

I like to find interesting still shots to capture the movements on the water.  This wasn't the largest bass in the world, but he sure attacked the bass jig.  Before the angler could unhook it I snuck in for a quick shot.  There is something cool about the colors of the jig and the largemouth bass that eat them.  I haven't quite put my finger on it, but when I fish bass on jigs, the bass always crush it and leave me with a feeling that I really tricked the big one into biting.  Nothing beats bass fishing with a bass jig!
