Experience White Bass Success with This Simple Swimbait Rig [VIDEO]

Aaron Wiebe picks up a random angler to help catch big white bass on the Winnipeg River. 

It’s the end of May and Uncut Angling host Aaron Wiebe is fishing the spring white bass run on the Winnipeg River in Pine Falls, Manitoba. Lacking a co-host for the outing, Wiebe pulls up to shore and asks random stranger Danita if she’d like to join him.

The two mark fish and begin vertical jigging with a simple and effective jig and swimbait set-up. I like the straightforward approach of this no muss/no fuss rig.

If you’ve got white bass in your area, this looks like a killer lure combination for both cast & retrieve and vertical fishing.

I’m planning on hitting the Wolf River this week as the run winds down here in Wisconsin, and rather than returning to our usual live bait system, I’ll be giving Wiebe’s jig and swimbait combo a good workout.
