"Last weekend I took a young man for his first trip on a boat at the age of 16. We fished Coleto Creek reservoir in Goliad Texas on a clear cold, windy day. Please know Joe is not new to bass fishing, as he has been pounding the tank around Kennedy for years and his best fish was a 4 pound plus. At Coleto, I showed him one of my favorite techniques, a DuCote Custom square bill. We caught fish all day long on 1.5 Perch and 2.5 Tilapia, staged at 4 to 8 feet deep on the edge of the grass, but didn't find Joe a new personal best. On Sunday, we went to one of his local hot spots, a tanks next to his house. I gave him a DuCote Custom crank, and Joe caught this nice 5+ pound bass!! He
now has a new goal to beat for his personal best and is a believer in the square bill bite! I want to thank Jared DuCote for the custom baits and a great new memory and look forward to many more with my DuCote cranks."
