A great bass snack
At one point or another, we all have encounter the time where bass are suffering of something some call lockjaw. It is the time when you can throw anything by the anchor and they just won’t bite. It has been my experience that when that happens, it is not that they won’t bite. It is that they are just not up for a meal. All they want is a little snack. this is when this swimmer takes place. This little swimmer turns those hard days into days full of action. Due to the size of them, I like to rig them on a round jig head. A 1/16 work well. However at times I use a 1/32. They come with a hook size 10 with is good enough to hold those lunkers. Due to the weight of the lure a light to ultra light spinning gear is a must. I like to use 4lb test line. So when the big one bite, one must know how to handle them or they will break off. There is one little problem though. This little swimmer will catch anything that is around. Big bluegills, crappie, catfish, baby bass and I have even got a carp on this swimmer. With 4lb test line, it took forever to land it though. So it could take a while before you catch that lunker you are after. But one can’t complain about the action one will be getting. I like to verily twitch the tip as I rill it back. Almost working it as a jerk bite as I let the fish tell me the speed that they like it. So I start very slow and little by little increase the speed. It does not take long to figure that out. My favor colors are black pearl, magic shad and albino shad. But other colors had work well too.
