Tim traveled 2500 miles to throw swimbaits and topwater for BIG bass in the Midwest and it worked! The big Michigan Smallmouth fell victim to the the swimbait just like their cousins out West. Time after time we're reminded that a bass is a bass, no matter where they swim.
We get asked over and over again if our techniques will work in a particular state or on a particular lake. Anglers constantly overlook the simple truth that all bass are inherently the same. They live in different environments but their feeding activity, movements, behavior, etc... are all identical.
Swimbaits work from coast to coast. Topwater, finesse, reaction, etc... will catch bass EVERYWHERE when the conditions are right. In today's video Tim gives a detailed step-by-step look at a day on the water in Northern Michigan as he breaks down the lake, locates the giant bass, and uses a handful of key baits to consistently put them in the boat.
Below is a breakdown of the gear he used to accomplish this feat:
