Jig Fishing Buyer's Guide!

The Holiday Buyer's guide officially kicks off with this 2018/2019 Jig Fishing Buyer's Guide! For this video we combined the Buyer's Guide with actual jig fishing instruction focused on the Late Fall and Winter Jig bite. Whether you flip, pitch, swim, or stroke a jig, you're going to learn some tactics that will help your jig fishing.

We begin by breaking the Fall/Winter down with 4 jigs. We want you to analyze your lakes and decide which of the jigs best fits your style. After that we throw in 2 other "must have" jigs for year-round fishing.

Below you'll find a complete breakdown of the jigs, trailers, color selection, even rod/reel recommendations that you should take a look at. Regardless of your budget, there is something for everyone here and we've laid it out as simply as possible.

A Day On The Water With TacticalBassin : Late Fall Bass Fishing

The Buyer's Guides are coming! The Holiday Season has arrived and with it, the need to understand what gear is worth purchasing and what should be avoided. With all the craziness ahead Tim and Matt took a break and just went fishing. A warm November afternoon is a rare sight and they took full advantage!

The guys started off with a plan. They brought a few key baits and expected to hit a couple quick spots that had been holding good groups of fish. As often happens, the fish had vanished and the boys had to adapt. With only a handful of rods in the boat they made key adjustments in lures, locations, and depths, and finally caught some really nice fish.

The key to this day was adaptation. The plan was to take a lipless crankbait and a jerkbait, targeting fish in less than 3' of water. The guys ended up adding an underspin, and a worm, in water ranging from 3 to 25 feet deep to find the success they were after.

The baits...

4 Crankbaits That Keep Catching Bass In Fall and Winter

Fall is prime time for the crankbait! Even if your water is in the 40's you can catch bass with these tips. As water temperatures drop we keep it very simple. Instead of throwing a dozen different baits focus on key baits in key colors and you'll see way more success.

Even as the water cools we fish all ends of the spectrum. We'll use a squarebill crankbait, deep diving crankbait, and a lipless crankbait for different presentations. Despite the variety, we keep the actual baits and colors very simple.

The first bait is the LV-500 lipless crankbait. The second bait is the Lucky Craft 1.5 Squarebill. Third is the River2Sea Biggie and last is the Strike King 6XD. By using these baits as a system you can cover virtually any situation without owning an entire tackle box of crankbaits. Simplify colors as well, focusing on a ghost color, a Flashy Color, and a solid or white color for your best chance at success.

Cold Water Jerkbait Fishing: Everything You Need To Know

If you're ready to catch more jerkbait fish, this is your video! Matt breaks down Which Baits, How To Work Them, and a whole lot more in this in-depth look at jerkbaits. He keeps his bait selection simple, makes his gear choices easy, and focuses on triggering the bass into biting.

If you've ever wanted to catch a jerkbait fish, now is the time to get out there and make it happen. The sharp cooling trend at the end of Fall triggers an aggressive feeding desire in bass. Couple that response with a desire to conserve energy in the cold and the jerkbait doubles up on effectiveness.

The handful of baits Matt describes in this video are deadly! Used independently they're great but when combined together you have a simple system that can be adapted to changing temperatures, depths, and cover.

Below you'll find a breakdown of Matt's favorite baits, equipment, hook upgrades, and even a color list of some of the colors that he has seen the most success with.
