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.

Dock Fishing Made Easy - How To Catch EVERY Bass!

Stop wasting casts and scaring fish!  These tricks will change the way you approach docks, the casts you make, and the fish you will catch. Ever wondered how many fish are really under the docks? You're about to find out! 

Tim uses a handful of baits but his method is very simple. He approaches docks from the outside in, and darkest shadows to lightest shadows. He also treats shadows and shadow edges the same way he does a piece of hard cover. 

By mixing finesse and reaction baits and fishing the key cover pieces, you will effectively reach every single fish under the dock. These tricks work!  Stop making the easy casts, catching the small fish, and scaring the big ones. Use these tips to immediately improve your catch rates.
