Kimbro said work commitments meant his bass fishing was done in the evening, and “you had to put a lot more action in the lures.”
When he moved to Kent Island and began fishing for striped bass five years ago, he also transferred his technique.
“When I’m fishing on the bottom, the objective is to crack the whip — to crack the tail of that lure like a whip on the bottom so it pops the bottom and stirs up a little mud or dirt ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â… and it gets the fish’s attention,” he said. “It works — most of the time.”
Kimbro was throwing a 10-inch BKD lure hot-rodded with red garlic dye on a barbless hook with a half ounce of weight.
