Bass Moving Shallow? No Problem With These 5 Baits!

The Bass flood into the shallows every Spring to feed and spawn. With the shallow water comes a whole new set of problems. Shallow snags, finicky bass, vegetation, and thick cover can all make it difficult to catch Bass in Spring. Instead of fighting it, embrace the shallow water this year!


These baits make it easy to fish shallow! We use a 2-part system, combining power and finesse to coax bass into biting. When one doesn't work, the other certainly will. Throw in a couple really unique baits and fall rates and you've got a sure system that will produce bites throughout the coming months!

Finesse Jigs - Get More Bites AND Catch Big Bass!

Why finesse jigs? When should you throw them? What are they for? Are they really that effective at catching quality and quantity at the same time? We're going to cover everything you need to know about Finesse jigs in this video!

The finesse jig shines throughout the Spring and early Summer. It produces consistently around cover, docks, and even around chunk rock. It has all the same fish catching qualities as a full size jig but it allows you to downsize your equipment and line to adapt to changing conditions. 
The next time you're on a shaky head, dropshot, or Texas Rig bite, consider throwing a finesse jig instead and you might be surprised at the number of big bass that had been lurking in front of you all along.

Spawning Bass Tips! Muddy Water? Cold Water? No Problem!

Forget the old rules! This isn't about white baits and spawning coves! Muddy Water? Cold Water? Get ready!! its about finding bass before everyone else, in places no one else looks, and catching fish when no one else even knows the spawn is happening! 

We all grew up reading about how to catch bass during the spawn. We don't need to cover the basics again (we already did that in previous videos). Today we want to completely change the way you approach spawning fish. 

Let's talk about cold water spawns, targeting bass in muddy water, and even false spawns in the Fall. Get ready!
