Z-Man Fishing Product's Project Z Fishing

Z-Man Fishing Product's Project Z Fishing

Daniel Nussbaum of Ladson, South Carolina, and Z-Man's Fishing Products has been a Finesse News Network member and contributor for several years. He has also been featured in several Midwest Finesse columns, such as "Z-Man Goes to Canada" and "Finesse News Network: The Art of Customizing."

And on March 25, he posted a brief on FNN about Z-Man's second season of "Project Z Fishing," noting that "Episode 6" features Luke Clausen of Spokane, Washington, and David Walker of Sevierville, Tennessee. Both are professional bass anglers.

Clausen competes on the Walmart FLW Tour, as well as Bassmaster's Central, Northern, and Southern Open series. He also won the Forrest Wood Cup in 2004 and Bassmaster Classic in 2006.

Walker began his full-time professional bass fishing career in 1996 on the FLW Tour. From 1999 to 2010, he competed on the Bassmaster Top 150 Tour and FLW Tour. Since 2011, he has fished the Bassmaster Elite Series.


Nussbaum explained that Clausen and Walker used Midwest finesse tactics in "Episode 6," and Mother Nature walloped them with a cold spell that dropped the thermometers around Bienville Plantation, Florida, to 24 degrees and coated some of the guides on their spinning rods with ice.


Nevertheless, Clasuen and Walker used Z-Man's Hula StickZ on a Z-Man's Finesse ShroomZ jig, Z-Man's Finesse ShadZ on a Z-Man's Finesse ShroomZ jig, and Z-Man's Finesse T.R.D. on a Finesse ShroomZ, and they fared well, indeed.

In fact, Nussbaum said: "Filming this episode was a lot of fun.  I was absolutely blown away at how effective the T.R.D. and Finesse ShroomZ were in 24-degree air temps in Florida. We caught more fish on that setup than any other bait we fished during our time at Bienville Plantation, on what was undoubtedly the toughest morning, no less."

Luke Clausen and David Walker caught the bulk of their largemouth bass on a Z-Man's green-pumpkin Finesse T.R.D. affixed to a Z-Man's Finesse ShroomZ jig.

Moreover, Nussbaum says, "It's been really neat to see more and more pros add Midwest Finesse to their arsenals."
