Swimbaits and Crankbaits For Schooling Bass

Hit the water with Matt and Tim as they locate huge schools of aggressive bass that are feeding heavily on small baitfish. The guys use a combination of paddle tail swimbaits and crankbaits to fool the bass as they feed on steep walls and ledges. 

Combining different presentations is a great way to keep schools of bass "active". The hardest part of fishing for schooling bass is triggering the frenzy, but these tips will help you keep them fired up longer and drastically increase your odds of catching a BIG bass. The combination of swimbait and crankbait offers two very different looks, both fast moving, and continues to trigger multiple fish at once.
