4 Underspin Tricks To Catch More Bass! Bonus Underwater Footage!

Catching BIG bass when everyone else is catching small fish is easy! Are you tired of keitech swimbaits getting torn? Which heads are best for ledge fishing? Did you know you can use blade size and color to change how a bass eats, not just when a bass eats? Do blades even move when bottom fishing? Does it matter? All of this and more in today's information-packed video on Fall Underspin fishing for bass!

The Underspin is one of the most underrated lures in bass fishing. Most clear water fishermen assume its too flashy and most muddy water fishermen don't realize their fish can find it. If you're one of the lucky ones that has given this technique a try during its recent resurgence, you already know how amazing it can be! The under spin may be the most versatile of all reaction baits. It has an effective range with water temps from high 30's all the way up to 80+ degrees. It can be fished in 50+ feet of water but is equally effective in just inches of water around vegetation.

The key to the underspin is in the subtle nuances. For example, the River2Sea D Walker will cause the bait to rock, roll, and flash more than any other bait we've ever seen. The keitech will get bit at virtually any speed and with the quick "spring trick" in this video, can last through dozens of fish. The Blade Runner Spintrix will draw fish with its incredible head wobble but when conditions change the Hog Farmer will catch them with its stable action. Pay attention to the details in this video and you will catch way more bass this Fall!

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.

Catching Bass In The Fall Transition On Frogs, Jigs, and Dropshot

Come along for an awesome topwater morning! We launched the bass boat in total darkness so we'd be ready for first light. As soon as you could see, the bass began exploding on our frogs! Once the sun was up we headed to the docks in search of bass with jigs, dropshot, texas rigs, and an old faithful curly tail grub. Ross England has filmed several finesse videos with us in the past but today you really get to see him approaching docks. Hop in the boat and enjoy a great day of fishing on Clearlake!

During the Fall transition, low light is a critical time for catching big bass. These fish are adapting to changing conditions and will often feed heavily at first and last light when their odds of success are the highest. Once the sun is up they'll sit in the shadows and wait for their next feeding opportunity. Understanding when its time to fish reaction baits and when its time to slow down and finesse is the key to consistent success.

In today's video we began by targeting the active morning feeding period with three different frogs (linked below). Once the sun hit the water the active bite vanished. If we had stayed in this are it would have been a struggle all day to get bit so we opted to move across the lake to an area covered with docks. By switching to hard cover (dock pilings) and shadows we were able to consistently catch fish the rest of the day.

Ross England has made a career targeting bass in docks. He loves to finesse fish amongst the pilings and today we got to see it in action! He used a combination of dropshot and curly tail grub to coax midday bass out from under the docks. It was a pleasure to watch him methodically approach each dock and successfully locate the bass within.

Below is a breakdown of the equipment we used during today's video. You'll also find links to the videos we've done with Ross in the past as well as a link to his guiding website.

Summer Ledge Fishing - Crankbaits, Underspins, and Hair Jigs

Today we're on Pickwick Lake looking for Summer bass on offshore ledges and breaks. This time of year the bass stack up on the edges around current and can be caught on a variety of power fishing techniques. We found an aggressive school in 20-25 feet of water and had a great time figuring out which baits they would eat.

The fish we located today were in a giant school. They gathered in the confluence if two river arms and were feeding aggressively on shad and other baitfish that came down the current. We used a 3-part method to catch these fish. We started out with a deep crankbait to fire up the school then switched to a hair jig and a heavy underspin to keep the fish's interest once the initial flurry was over.

Ledge fishing is an awesome way to catch a bunch of bass in a hurry. Its also an amazing opportunity to catch BIG bass in the middle of Summer. If your local lake has current in the Summer, you have fish that back out to the outside structures, ledges, and breaks. This fishing style will work on your lake and you might be amazed how big of bass you can catch in the heat of the day.

Below is a breakdown of the baits and equipment we used to catch the fish in today's video. We also included a few color recommendations to make it easier for you to apply the techniques to your local lakes.
