3 Ways To Fish A Worm For Bass This Summer

Its time! These 3 methods are so effective and almost no one uses all of them. We aren't talking about how to rig your worm on a shaky head... we're talking about how to snap the rod tip to trigger a feeding frenzy, watching the rod to detect bites that the most sensitive rods can't feel, and more!

Summer time is prime time to fish a straight tail worm. We love to rig them on a shaky head and combine these 3 very different methods to trigger bites. The goal is to create a feeding frenzy so you can get bite after bite. Matt also breaks down where bass are positioning and how to choose the right areas.

Swinging Jigs For Summer Bass - Everything You Need To Know

Don't show the bass the same old baits! Do something different this Summer and you're going to catch bigger fish. The swinging jig head stormed the market a few short years ago but has virtually vanished from the public eye since. 

Whether you caught fish on the Biffle Head when it came out or not, your fish will eat a swinging jig as you swim it along the bottom. When this style of bait hit the market there was very little information about how to fish it properly. In this video Matt breaks down the heads, baits, and gear that has worked best for him over the past couple of years.
