How To Catch Big Bass In Winter: Swimbait Tips For Cold Water Bass Fishing

December 28, 2020 39 No Comments


Swimbaits are easy! They’re not complicated, there is no mystery, and you can start catching bass on swimbaits any time you want. Its all about knowing which swimbaits work at different times and how to put them to work for you. Today Matt breaks down the 3 styles of swimbaits that work in cold water and explains what each style is for. 

Do you have a box full of swimbaits but few, if any catches to show for them? Have you lost confidence in the swimbait all together? You’re not alone! A lot of bass fishermen have been caught up in the hype without ever being taught the details of how to consistently catch swimbait fish. Today we’re focusing on why different styles work and when they should be fished. If you go out with confidence and throw the right baits in the right situations, its a matter of time before you start catching swimbait fish. 

Winter is a tough time of year to get bit on any bait. If you’re going to work hard to get bit on anything, you might as well put in the time to get the right bites on big baits. Below are links to our favorite baits, favorite colors, and the gear we use to throw them. All of the links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item.
