We caught up with Mike Bucca, Owner of Bull Shad Swimbaits on Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee to get a look out how he fishes his own swimbait. Mike doesn't buy into the "slower is better" swimbait mentality so get ready to have your eyes opened!
We talk a lot about "triggering" bass into biting and that is exactly what Mike is designing his baits to do. Whether you throw the Bull Shad or not this a swimbait retrieve that you should learn how to apply to your fishing.

Mike fishes his baits on the Curado 300. This reel has since been replaced by the Tranx.
