The Big Bass Zone: Football Jigs for Urban Ponds (Part 2)

Check out my latest article on football jig for urban bass (Part 2) on the Big Bass Zone website at http://thebbz.com/

In this installment, allow me to share with you my perspective and tips on football jig selection and presentation styles for shallow water urban ponds during the prespawn period in Hangzhou, eastern China.

Check out my latest article on Bill Siemantel's The Big Bass Zone.
