Okay, okay, as you continue to read you'll figure out there are no super tips or tactics on how Zoneloc pros use the finest fishing hooks in the bass fishing world. You've got me. However, there are tips and tactics and frankly two recipes from a former Bassmaster Classic champ and Angler of the Year. Oh yeah, he's also a champion at winning celebrity cook-offs in Texas. The one and only Zoneloc pro Alton Jones. The Green Egg

Jones family living the dream as fourth father and son duo to fish Bassmaster Classic

When an angler grabs the lead toward the end of the final day of the GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK'S Sporting Goods, he'll take a rest in a special chair known as the "hot seat" until someone bumps him from the top.

Former Bassmaster Classic champion Alton Jones and his son, 24-year-old Bassmaster Elite Series rookie Alton Jones Jr., were asked separately this week to envision a situation with one of them in that hot seat and only the other left to weigh in with the Classic trophy on the line.

Would that scenario be a nightmare or a dream?

Without blinking - as if they'd rehearsed it somewhere privately together - they both said, "A dream!"

The Joneses will have a chance to carve those kinds of special moments into history when the 47th renewal of Classic - the undisputed world championship of professional bass fishing - takes place March 24-26 on Lake Conroe with daily weigh-ins at Houston's Minute Maid Park.

They will become only the fourth father/son duo to compete in the event, joining Bill and Greg Ward, Guido and Dion Hibdon, and Denny and Chad Brauer. Full Story
