Do your bass have lock jaw? Ours too! Here are the baits we turn to when absolutely nothing is working. When the going gets tough, confidence is everything. These 4 baits in very specific colors are what we turn to when the bass just don’t want to bite. 

Spring bass fishing is full of big bass, fun patterns, and aggressive strikes. Its also full of cold fronts, rising water, post-frontal wind storms, and freezing temperatures. When the tables are turned against you its important to know what to do next. Matt and Tim were faced with very tough conditions today and adapted accordingly. While the bite remained tough, they fished with confidence knowing they were making the right choices in spite of the circumstances. 

The next time you’re faced with less than ideal weather, turn to finesse baits to get bit. You know how much we love to power fish but some days it just isn’t worth it. Below is a break down of the 4 baits we confidently tied on in pursuit of lock-jawed bass.
