Rigging Soft Swimbaits and Paddle Tails For Spring Bass Fishing

These tricks will save you time and money the next time you throw a swimbait! We're covering when to throw an underspin, when a hollow belly is better than a paddle tail, and how to quit wasting so many keitechs! If you want to catch a swimbait fish this Spring, this is the video for you.

We cover basic rigging with weedless swimbait heads like the Owner Beast as well as traditional rigging with the Matt Allen swimbait head. Next we discuss the best underspins for a variety of circumstances and last we take it a step further and cover how to make your own underspins on the fly.

Below is a breakdown of all the swimbaits, swimbait heads, underspins, and terminal tackle discussed in the video.

Winter Bass Fishing: Focus on the Extremes

Winter may be tough fishing but its prime time to catch giant bass! Don't let the cold temperatures and tough fishing fool you, this is one of your best shots at the fish of a lifetime and you should absolutely be on the water. 

This isn't the time to be exploring new baits or trying to build confidence. During the cold water months you should be focused on a handful of confidence baits so you know that you're doing the right things, even when you aren't getting bit. If you stick to your game plan the time will come that you cross paths with a truly giant bass!

Baits that we recommend during the cold Winter months...

Big Baits:

-7" Basstrix

-8" Trash Fish

-Owner Beast Hook
