Marsh Man Masson video: Roulette wheel decides which baits we fish

The hands of fate can be kind — or cruel

Successful fishing is often a matter of figuring out which baits fish will hit in specific situations. Well, that’s not possible when you load a bunch of lure names onto a roulette wheel and let random chance determine what you’re going to fish.

That’s exactly what Marsh Man Masson did this week with two of his buddies, Jeff Bruhl and Chris Macaluso. After spinning the wheel, each angler could use only the randomly selected lure for the next 30 minutes.

To top it off, the anglers were competing to not be the one who had to fill up with gas both the boat and tow vehicle after the trip. One point was earned for each 12-inch-plus speckled trout, 16-inch-plus redfish and 11-inch-plus largemouth bass.

Lure options on the wheel included worm, craw, spinnerbait, crankbait, topwater of choice, Brush Hog, Pop-R, frog, jig and the anglers’ favorite buzz bait.

Skies were mostly clear, winds were brisk at about 15 knots out of the southeast, and the tide was high but falling hard most of the day.

The challenge led to some whining, crying and a whole lot of laughs.
