Some of the best fishing lures for catching bass are right in front of our faces but nobody seems to recognize them. This happens a lot when anglers don’t think to look at artificial lures designed for other species of fish like crappies and bluegill and even walleye. One of the best lures for fishing ultra clear lakes that have grass and rock is a fishing technique I learned from fellow YouTuber Benjamin Nowak -it’s basically throwing a marabou style hair jig and swimming it just like you fish a swimjig but more along the line of slow rolling it.
I got the most insane sight fishing bite fishing for bass in a tiny clear creek on Lake Lanier. It was unbelievable!!! Reeling in a Nichols Ned Rig Jig with a Gambler Ace I had two bass follow the bait all the way to the boat. I flipped the bait back out while looking at the fish and it bit!!! Absolutely insane!!! Probably the best sight fishing bites I have ever had. We caught some other spotted bass on a range of techniques from throwing Sebile swimbaits to casting micro swimbaits on ball jig heads. Lake Lanier is super clear and the creeks were no exceptions so using light line and more finesse fishing techniques was key.

My buddy Cobi let me check out his super expensive Roman Made Swimbait!!! Insane fishing lure! We went to Lake Guntersville to bass fish and Cobi caught some insane glide bait bass fishing super shallow water. It started as a Ned Rig only fishing trip but as the bass moved up and became more active Cobi’s commitment to the Glide Bait paid off!! These fish are so pressured so seeing something completely custom like a homemade swimbait they get triggered!!!
