As Elite Series pro Chris Zaldain explains, glide baits are essentially large-profiled jerkbaits that when worked properly, have a repetitive side-to-side motion that triggers a feeding instinct in the largest of bass. There’s a lot a theory out there on how to work these beautiful lures, but the guidance provided in this video instills a confidence that you can take to the water and be successfully up and running with no prior experience. Chris hits on the history of the lure in the Western United States bass scene and shares his favorite times, places and method for working glide baits. He also discusses what constitutes a well-tuned and balanced glide bait over lesser ones. All great content that should make you excited to try on your local waters.
