Windy Day Swimbait Fishing From Shore!

Come along with Matt throwing big swimbaits for giant smallmouth! Matt breaks down the water, explains his decisions, and gives some great tips for controlling your baits and line in the wind. 

Big smallmouth are the best! Catching them from the bank is even better! Go figure the best bite of the day came while he was on the phone. The key to getting bit in this video was location. Matt selected a bank that was wind blown, had a corner where baitfish could be trapped, and offshore cover to allow the bass to ambush their prey more easily.
