Sight Fishing Made Easy!

Let's talk about bed fishing! Matt breaks down the EXACT baits that you need to be throwing during the spawn and explains when to throw each style and color. 

Color selection... 
Focus on using Green Pumpkins, Browns, and true bluegill colors. If the fish aren't responding to the natural colors switch to either White, Chartreuse, or colors with a lot of flash to try and elicit a reaction strike. Both methods can be effective but always start with the natural colors so you don't spook finicky bass.

Which Color Lures Should You Be Using This Spring?

Don't let murky water or changing conditions keep you from catching fish! Matt explains how to simplify your color selection and adapt to changing water clarity when fishing in the Spring.

Remember the key to success during Spring fishing is to simplify and focus on key color combinations. By applying simple principals to color selection you'll be able to spend more time fishing effectively.  Don't let cold, muddy water scare you. Bass still need to feed and by adapting from ghost colors to bold colors you can easily trigger those bass into a frenzy.

What color swimbait should you choose?

Across the nation bass feed on a variety of prey species. Swimbait manufactures were quick to pick up on this and produce baits to match nearly any forage available to bass. On a typical store shelf you can find swimbaits that match everything from a rat, to a trout, to a goby. Without direction your only real option is to buy them all and see what works for you.
The good news is I already did the hard work for you! Over the last 10 years I’ve purchased nearly every swimbait to hit the market (with few exceptions) and have tried them in a dizzying array of colors. I’ve compiled all of that information into this quick video. I don’t cover every bait but I have a few quick tips that will help you select the right color for your situation.
You don’t need box after box of swimbaits, stick to the basics and you’ll do just fine. In fact, you’ll usually do better than the guy who spends all day digging through his boxes looking for the “magic” bait.
