One of the most versatile fall selections for anglers following the shad is a swimbait. Rigged with an exposed hook and swimbait head it can be fished throughout the water column.
Not only is this a goto rig for summertime deep water fishing it can be thrown on channel banks, flats, and around structure like blowdowns and grass clumps effectively too as fish follow bait shallow in search of a meal feeding up for the cold weather months.
The Tackle HD Swimmer is equally effective in the spring rigged weightless or with a tiny weight or split shot jerking it and letting it fall like a dying baitfish. It works great on bedding fish too and because of its bulk can be cast long distances sometimes needed for wary or easily spooked bass cruising the shallows.
For our latest giveaway, we are going to give 5 readers a chance to win 5 packs of the Tackle HD Swimmer in pearl, iridescent blue, alewive, crystal shad, and smoke pearl.
