Swimbait Tips

Catch Pressured Bass Using a Stealthy Swimbait Approach

Heavy tournament fishing pressure has forced Wired2Fish intern Kobie Koenig to adjust tactics on one of his favorite lakes. No longer is he able to park the boat on top of the school and video game bass. Trolling motor and electronics noise quickly scatters the fish.

Kobie explains how he graphs spots first, waypoints schools of fish then positions the boat well off the spot. Long distance casts and slow-dragging bottom-based presentations such as football head jigs and swimbaits have been key to getting quality bites.
