Fall Bass Fishing Buyer's Guide!

New Swimbaits! New Topwater! Soft baits, Blades, tail spins, and more! Fall bass fishing brings some of the best reaction bites of the year and these new lures will help you succeed! Showing the bass something different can make all the difference and this Fall we have some innovative new products to choose from.

While most of our Fall picks are lures, there are some great new terminal products as well. Blades that flash and create movement are the key element we focus on when bass are around baitfish. Both Z-Man and VMC brought unique bladed offerings that will help you stand out from the crowd. Add in a selection of blade baits from 3 proven brands and you're set all the way into Winter.

The purpose of these gear reviews is to help you wade through the plethora of new products that constantly hit store shelves. With so many options its hard to know which baits are designed to catch fish and which are there to catch fishermen. With an abundance of time on the water and a healthy tackle addiction, we fish our way through new tackle as quickly as possible to find the "diamonds in the rough" and bring that information to you in our seasonal gear reviews and buyer's guides.

Summer Bass Fishing Buyer's Guide

There are a ton of new baits from Ned Worms to Swimbaits on the market this Summer and today we're going to review some of the best. Its easy to get overwhelmed by all the new tackle but Tim makes it easy by sharing some of his confidence baits as well as a few recent finds. If you're looking for something to try as we head in to Early Summer, give these baits a look.

Today's video samples baits from both ends of the spectrum. Tim has a lot of confidence in a new Ned Worm from Missile Baits, as well as a couple finesse hooks. But he's also developed a ton of confidence in a few swimbaits for Summer bass fishing. If you're heading shallow the Noisy Dachs by Evergreen was out of stock for nearly a year and is finally back on the market! If you're probing deep, the new colors of Baitsanity are a killer option (That Kokanee is hard to beat!)
