How to Fish a Swim Bait to Put More Bass in Your Boat

These pro-tips to fish a swim bait with varying weights and techniques are going to get the bass hooked.

Here is another great tip on how to fish a swim bait that you may have not considered in the past.

Even though I have been fishing since I was about five, I still have a vast amount to learn on improving my techniques and gear to catch more bass.

Tips like varying the weights you use and how fast or slow you retrieve your swim bait can have a huge effect on your success rate. A little cooler and you want to play that lure slower and later in the season you can add more action.

It is amazing what a small little swim bait can do to attract bass, your lures don’t all have to be big, sometimes smaller and finessed is better.
