No More Secrets! Here's What We've Been Using!

Are the Pros fooling you? Do they use one lure but tell you something else? Are they really using a single brand? Are you even getting real information? Have you ever wondered? Matt just dropped off his clients and decided to give you guys a look at the boat after a serious day of big bass hunting on Clearlake. 

Its not what you'd expect! Its not all giant baits and secret lures. Of course there are swimbaits but there are also jerkbaits, jigs, and so much more. The key to consistently catching giant bass is adapting to changing conditions. The right baits play a key role in your success but knowing when and where to use them is even more important. 

Don't get caught up in all the hype and don't worry about secrets! Here are the baits Matt had tied on after an awesome day of catching big bass with his clients.

The 4 Best Baits For Finding Bass In Spring

Spring is supposed to be easy but getting those first few fish can be tough! Matt and Tim show you the method they use to find bass quickly and efficiently so no time is wasted during your day on the water. 

The key is using baits that get bit consistently but that can also be fished very quickly through likely areas. You don't want to fish too fast and miss opportunities but you also can't afford to slowly work each location hoping to run across active fish. 

Here are Matt's Bait picks...
Deep Water Jerkbait- Staysee 90: http://bit.ly/2dBzMmz
(Try American Shad or Aurora Black)
Shallow Water Jerkbait- Jackall Rerange: http://bit.ly/2ge0qED
(Try HL Hasu or HL Silver Shad)
Rattling Squarebill- River2Sea Biggie Poppa: http://bit.ly/2ahCzvo
(Try Cold Blooded or Rooster)
Creature Bait- Strike King Game Hawg: http://bit.ly/2pfGxir
Finesse Worm- Roboworm 6" Fat Worm: http://bit.ly/2awYSxM

Here are Tim's Bait Picks...
Glidebait- S-Waver 168: http://bit.ly/2aiu8Sh
(Try Light Trout Color)
Alabama Rig- Flash Mob Jr.: http://bit.ly/2bgDGNu
Heads- Matt Allen Swimbait Head: http://bit.ly/29RrTYN
Baits- 4.8 Keitech Fat Swing Impact: http://bit.ly/2ab7s8v

There are a lot of different ways to catch fish in Spring but the ultimate goal is to maximize your time on the water. The faster you can locate productive areas with active schools of fish, the better your overall fishing experience will be. While many baits will work, these are the baits we rely on.
