Let's head under water and look at how fish react to a worm, a swimbait, and a jig. Tim presents all 3 baits to a variety of bass and watches their reactions. Its amazing how differently each fish reacts . Some lash out immediately, others ignore one bait entirely and then come to life for the next. Take a look and then share your take aways with us at the end.
The biggest "tell" about how a bass will react to a bait is its dorsal fin. If that fin starts standing up or moving rapidly you know you've got a fish that's fired up for a bait. If you make a change and the dorsal settles, its time for another switch. Its always best to have a variety of baits tied on and ready so you can adapt quickly to each fish's temperament.
Some of our key baits for sight fishing (and fishing in general) are a dropshot worm, jig, small swimbait, and large swimbait. Below is a breakdown of the specific baits Tim is using in the video. Comment below and let us know what you learned from watching how these bass react.
