Dark sleeper

This 3-inch Megabass Dark Sleeper swimbait cost six dollars and is the latest impulse buy that writer Dave Mull blames on YouTube. He bought four of them.

The advice on Facebook to the guy who had just bought a new kayak and wanted rigging suggestions was a little off topic, but definitely spot on.

“And save yourself a lot of money and don’t watch any bass fishing videos on YouTube,” said one helpful respondent.
