Top Spring Baits For Finesse Fishing

Spring is prime time to go fishing and these baits will help you catch more fish! Don't worry about trying a dozen different baits, focus on these key categories, especially when the conditions get tough! 

Many anglers think of Spring as the time get out and power fish. While this is a great plan, it doesn't always pan out. Its important to have a backup plan so you don't struggle when conditions change. If you're ready to adapt and drop down to finesse tackle, you'll become much more consistent through the Spring, Summer, and beyond.
