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.

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.

How To Catch The Biggest Bass In The Lake | Full Seminar 2018

Matt Allen teaches you step-by-step how to catch the biggest fish in the lake. From swimbaits, to jigs, to reaction baits, he teaches you the techniques and tricks you'll need to fool the biggest bass in your lake. 

Its not complicated and anyone can do it, once you understand how to "trigger" a feeding response from bass instead of waiting for them to bite. From A-rigs to jerkbaits, jigs, and of course giant swimbaits, you'll learn exactly what it takes to consistently catch big bass. 

This year the tank was extremely crowded (Thank you to each and every one of you that joined us in person for this seminar! We couldn't do this without you and we're so grateful you took time out of your day to come see us!) Because of the crowded conditions we were not able to get camera angles on the tank to show the fish's reactions to the bait. We apologize for the single camera angle but we hope you enjoy the information!

Which Spots Hold The Most Fish?

We've taught you ALMOST everything you need to know for Winter bass fishing. We covered depths, patterns, baits, retrieves, and conditions but there is one more piece to the puzzle. Here is the final tip for consistently catching Winter Bass!

Which spots should you fish? Its a simple question with an equally simple answer. Here are some KEY locations on any lake that will hold bass in Winter. 

1) Transitions: Anywhere there is a change between two different kinds of material. (Rock to mud, mud to grass, gravel to boulders, etc.) 

2) Points: Any point that breaks to deep water is a key Winter location. If you have multiple points, the point that reaches out into the DEEPEST water is the best point. 

3) Visible Cover: This could be anything from standing timber to brush, rocks, grass, garbage, virtually anything in the water that is "different" from the rest. On a sunny day any piece of visible cover that breaks the water's surface will be slightly warmer than the surrounding water and will attract bass that are trying to warm themselves. 

The baits we're throwing this time of year have not changed... here are some of our favorites.
