If you’ve been paying much attention to tournament results from Lake Eufaula over the past several years, it is likely you have seen Scott Montgomery’s name near the top of the leaderboard. Last week’s FLW Toyota Series on Eufaula was no exception, as Montgomery added another top 10 finish to his resume on the Alabama/Georgia border fishery.

What you may not know about Montgomery is he spends his days serving as VP of Big Bite Baits. Montgomery’s parents Dennis and Joyce instilled a great work ethic in him from a very young age, and he has been working with them at D&J Plastics and Big Bite Baits ever since. “My Dad has taught me so much about working in this industry over the years, and I owe all of the success I have had to my parents,” says Montgomery. While helping to make D&J Plastics and Big Bite Baits prosper Montgomery has carved out time to stay active in local and regional tournaments. “I try to find as many events that are close to home that I can fish in order to balance my work load. These mainly consist of one day weekend tournaments that do not require me to miss much work. I will always look to see if a big tournament will be coming to my home lake and always try to fish it, but it’s hard for me to be gone from work when the fishing is as it peak because that’s when we are the busy at the plant,” said Montgomery.

Working within the industry can be a gift and a curse for those anglers who love to fish tournaments, as Montgomery is well aware of. “I think it is an advantage to work in the industry in the sense that I am up on some of the new baits and trends, but you balance that with the fact that it is difficult to get time off of work to actually fish and it is probably a wash.” Montgomery concluded.

Red Baits in the Spring

Rayburn Red Suicide Shads are a great compliment to a red SPRO RkCrawler

Anglers love red crankbaits in the Spring, from lipless rattling baits to crankbaits, red is a best-selling color each year. Red plastics are often overlooked in this “Spring Red Craze” and represent a good chance to catch more fish for an angler looking for a competitive edge.

Big Bite Baits has a wide variety of red plastics in the most popular Spring shapes to give anglers more red options this spring.  The Suicide Shad in Rayburn Red has been a proven performer the past two seasons.  Imagine you are on a hot bite with a red Rattle Trap over shallow grass, suddenly the fish stop biting after repeated casts.  What better way to show them something different than to follow up with a red Suicide Shad.   See all the red soft plastic offerings from Big Bite.

Chatterbaits and Jackhammers are also top picks for anglers in the Spring.  Red versions of these baits are now gaining in popularity and Big Bite now has red versions to match up with these baits.  Flamethrower and GP Flamethrower are now available in our popular Swimon to pair perfectly with any Chatterbait
