Jason Short says:

What color swimbait was you using?

Go Gamecocks!! But nice videos dude, looks like a lot of fun.

Christopher Kelly says:

Please Help: My daughter and I fish in a small catch and release pond in NYC. It is full of Large Mouth Bass and Bluegill. The bass are up to 9pnd. Since it is catch and release they are wicked smart and mouth the bait before swallowing. We need a soft bait combo that hides the hook. How would you approach this?

Grant Henderson says:

when in doubt find a fluke video… then proceed to shopping cart and buy bait in question. My credit card company thanks you.

Bo Richardson says:

suck ma ass says:

gene I have a question… for some reason I can only side cast with a baitcaster. whenever I try and over hand cast it I end up bird nesting it. any suggestions????

Clinton Fisher says:

I’ll be honest most of my life I’ve been a saltwater fisherman. in saltwater live bait is king bar non. Fish don’t really go after artificial baits here beyond the occasional POA shrimp and a live gulp shrimp under a popping cork.

I was never good with artificial baits since it was just a bad place to start off with. Live/dead shrimp had always being the king.

Moved to Iowa recently and started my artificially journey. At first I could only can’t fish on ribbon tailed worms weightless. It was my trusted bait.

Started catching then on a weedless weighted hook. That became my new go too. Watched this videos this morning and decided I will give paddle tail a chance. All I had tho was root beer flavored saltwater assassins.

Went out there and caught fish all day back to back to back. I got 6 in under a hour and it felt great. Probably the best day fishing since I’ve moved from Mississippi. Don’t get me wrong it was a great day period but every year in July Speckled Trouts will spawn and you can’t avoid catching them. They are just so aggressive.

It gets to the point where it just feels like a guaranteed fish every cast and it kinda ruins the fun of it.

Still tho thank you for this video. I’ve really grown to trust artificial baits over the last 3 months 🙂

this intro is your best one!

Todd Marsolais says:

can u use a swim bait in deeper water like rivers??

Max Mayall says:

How do you keep it swimming straight without it going on its side? No matter what I do its seems that it always wants to come in on its side.
