This is one cool swimbait technique for targeting winter bass in cold water. Using a bass head jig with a light wire hook and screw lock you tread on 3.5″ or less swimbaits. In the video we caught most of our bass in deep clear water using the Scottsboro Tackle hand poured lure in a Dirty Hitch color pattern. It’s important to use a little lighter fishing rod for this technique as well – I like a 7′ M bait caster or a 7′ M spinning rod if I’m using a jig 1/4 oz or less. If you have super cold water temperatures or just ultra pressured fishing and need a finesse tactic that covers water, this technique might be the ticket.
There are few techniques for bass fishing in summer that I love as much as this one. The NEKO RIG has caught me so man fish in the hot summer months it’s INSANE. It’s such a simple technique and basically allows you to deliver a wacky rigged fishing lure at depths bass normally don’t see such a rig. The other reason I love this technique is it catches small fish up to mondo huge bass! It’s perfect for clear to moderately stained water and in most situations should be fished where you find open hard bottom. Not a lure you want to throw into heavy cover but more geared for targeting pods or schools of fish setup on offshore structure. We break down the 3 soft plastic baits I use, the terminal tackle, how to set up the Neko Rig, and what types of fishing rods work best to fish the Neko Rig.

Fishing for bass with huge swimbaits is crazy fun in any day but when you catch a GIANT 10lbs 12oz fish it’s an epic day. There are some fishing tips and techniques you need to know when targeting trophy bass if you want to catch your PB and we break them down in this bass fishing video. The action of the the Bull Shad swimbait is insane and I’m not going to lie I was intimidated throwing such a big fishing lure but the results speak for the themselves.
