We love creating content on techniques that helps everyone, us included, catch more fish. Here’s an informative swimbait tip from Elite Series pro John Crews on how to catch spotted bass in clear water, but it works equally well for smallmouth and largemouth bass too. At the heart of the rig is a light ball head jig and small 3.5” boot tail swimbait. John stresses the importance of jig head weight as it relates to lure running depth and speed of retrieve, and provides his three favorites sizes for 95% of swimbait situations he encounters. Light line and a moderate power rod round out this system that’ll guaranteed help you put fish in the boat on clear water lakes, rivers or impoundments near you.
