3 Underspin Tricks You Haven't Tried!

Making the perfect underspin is easy! There are some awesome products on the market now that let you convert any hook, swimbait head, or jighead into an underspin. You can modify baits, change hooks, weights, blade sizes, and more, and it only takes a few seconds.

Bass love chasing baitfish in the Fall and the underspin is a great way to target those fish. Unfortunately no two lakes are the same so one day you might be fishing in 2 feet around grass and the next day find yourself in 25 feet on a flat. With these simple baits and hooks you can quickly adapt to changing conditions.

Below you'll find a breakdown of the the individual items and tackle Matt discussed in the video. Farther down you'll find his recommendations for making your own "UnderSpin Kit" to store in the boat so you can easily adapt to changing conditions when the need arises.

Bass Fishing With Finesse Swimbaits - Fall Transition

Small swimbaits are great for catching numbers of bass! In early Fall the big bass school up with smaller fish and the finesse swimbait is a great way to get big bites from giant bass that wouldn't normally eat such a small meal. If you've got baitfish in your lake, you're probably missing out on a fantastic finesse swimbait bite right now!

Unlike their larger cousins, finesse swimbaits can be fished on standard tackle. Depending on the size of the head you choose they can be fishing on anything from a light spinning rod to a heavy jig rod. The concept is the same as throwing big swimbaits but you're much more likely to get steady action throughout the day.

The key to small swimbaits is to match the size of baitfish in your lake. If you're seeing the bass chase tiny minnows, don't be afraid to drop down to a little 2.8 keitech. If big baitfish are present, upsize your offering to match. Below is a breakdown of some of our favorite heads for different size swimbaits.

46 lb Striper Eats a Swimbait!!

Watch this GIANT bass DESTROY Shawn's S-Waver 200 Swimbait! He's fast-cranking the bait in heavy current when the giant inhales it. Ever wondered what it looks and feels like to catch a true MONSTER Bass? You're about to experience it first hand!

These giant striped bass eat a tremendous amount of food to maintain their size. A large swimbait is an easy snack to these predators and the perfect lure to fool them. These fish don't reach these sizes by making mistakes but its hard for them to pass on a big swimbait. 

Shawn is a fishing guide that specializes in these monster bass. If you're interested in fishing with him in pursuit of a giant, you can contact him by email. He's currently booking trips for the fall bite. His email is buttebassin@gmail.com

The Biggest Fish I've Ever Hooked From Shore!

Its a GIANT! Cast To Catch of a monster Striped Bass that ate the swimbait while we were standing on shore. The situation goes from bad to worse when the big bass decides to head up stream and we can't follow her! 

We get requests for banking fishing videos all the time. We love shore fishing because it offers some distinct advantages. The ability to creep up on wary fish without being detected is key to consistently getting big bites. However, this fish was in a different class and we were very lucky we didn't have to follow her with the boat. 

This fish fell for a glide bait. Below Is a breakdown of the gear Matt and Shawn were using.
