How to Boot Tail Swimbaits Like the Megabass Magdraft

Swimbaits are all the craze for big bass these days with high-end glide baits getting a lot of the press. Chris Zaldain’s go-to tournament swimbait for numbers of bass and kicker bites is a 6-inch and 8-inch Megabass Magdraft, which has a ton of fish-triggering tail and body wag throughout its length. Unlike jig head-rigged swimbaits, the Magdraft has a single belly treble hook attached to internal wiring via a torque-reducing swivel. Chris discusses how wind conditions send him reaching for this style of swimbait, as well as the type of cover he targets with it.
