How To Skip Under Docks & Trees

These are the tricks you need to know to skip your jig wayyyy back under cover. If you're the guy fishing the edges of docks and fronts of trees, your fishing is about to change! Tim goes in depth with the methods he uses to consistently reach deep into the dark corners of overhead cover.

Skipping is an amazing way to catch bass that no one else is even fishing for. Once mastered, you can reach fish so far back in the shadows that they're rarely approached. The method is best learned with a spinning rod but ultimately can be done with virtually any tackle.

Below is a breakdown of the rods, reels, and lures that Tim is using to skip in this video:

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. 

The Heads...

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.
