Amazing Underwater Footage of 10 Underspins and Swimbaits!!

Come underwater and see why bass eat Underspins in the Fall! We're comparing 10 different underspin and swimbait combinations to see which have the best action for different Fall bass fishing conditions. Whether you prefer a shad profile, bluegill, or small baitfish, we're looking at the best of the best in today's underwater video!

Bass ambush baitfish in the Fall and the underspin is one of the most consistent ways to catch them. A topwater may be more glamorous but a slow moving underspin on the bottom consistently catches giant bass that are unwilling to chase faster moving offerings. Choosing the right underspin for the lake or conditions can be a very difficult process to learn with a lot of wasted time and money. The purpose of today's video is to help you understand the differences between popular underspins and to see some of the "stand outs" that have that extra fish catching potential.

This video will be followed in a few weeks by an in-depth instructional video to teach you how to unlock the full potential of underspins. Sometimes they are best fished mid-column around baitfish or suspended bass. Other times they're best crept along rock bottoms or even through sparse grass in the shallows. We'll explain all of these different scenarios and more very soon but today's video was designed to help you select the baits with the most potential for where you fish.

Below is a complete breakdown of the baits shown in the video. The links are displayed in order of appearance and include the color shown, trailer used, as well as the sizes that we prefer for each offering. Additionally we will include rod and equipment recommendations for this fishing style.

Fluke Rigging Tricks to Catch Bass Shallow or Deep

Learn how to use a soft jerkbait as a topwater, a mid-depth jerkbait, and a deep bait without adding any weight. Matt demonstrates how to adjust hooks and hook placement to get a variety of actions out of a fluke. If you're looking for a single "do everything" bait this Spring, look no further than the fluke.

The Super Fluke is in every angler's arsenal. Some use it as a Carolina rig bait, others as a stick bait, still others use it as a topwater. Today Matt explains some quick hook and bait modifications that will open doors to completely different ways to fish the Fluke. If you've been using the bait with a single-use approach, its time to learn what you've been missing!

A Day On The Water: Spring Fishing With Matt On Clearlake

Come along for an early pre-spawn day on Clearlake. The water temps are in the low 50's, air temps at launch are 37 degrees, but the bass are biting! We spend the day adapting and developing a pattern as we explore the lake with a variety of reaction baits.

We all dream about the wide open Spring bite but more often than not we're met with challenging weather conditions. This day was a perfect example of changing conditions resulting in a bite that was tougher than anticipated. The difference between frustration and success is being willing to adapt.

Easy Jerkbait Tips For Bigger Spring Bass

Its time to catch bigger fish! These jerkbait tips will help you catch big bass this Spring. Knowing when to throw a tiny jerkbait instead of a large offering or a bold color instead of natural, can make all the difference. When it comes to jerkbait fishing, small details can yield huge results.

Matt uses a 2-pronged approach to jerkbait fishing. He begins by searching for outliers (bigger than average bass) with large profiled baits but will quickly adapt to a triggering approach focused around schooling fish and small baits, when necessary. Understanding how to use a jerkbait as a tool instead of just another lure is the difference between just catching fish and being an excellent jerkbait fisherman.

Below is a breakdown of the baits and tackle we recommend. Don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone this year and target the fish with baits you wouldn't have normally thrown. You might be surprised by how big of a bass is willing to swipe your jerkbait!
