Spring swimbaits/Glide baits
« on: February 16, 2021, 07:10:49 PM »
Anybody lob the big baits for bass? Over the last 2 seasons I have really fallen in love with glidebaits. If I'm not tournament fishing or prefishing for a tournament I find myself leaving all my tackle at home and just throwing glides. Watching big bass stalk your bait is addicting.

I was a little bored this winter and added to the collection.

It's definitely its own class of bass fishing! You have to be committed to possibly one bite per day. Big gear, big patience, big bass. I have a few Hudds, a 13" Hiroshima trout and a couple combos set up specifically for throwing them but still find it hard to commit the time outside of March and April.

I got addicted to deep water off-shore fishing for bass a few years ago after a lifetime of being a shallow water addict. Just goes to show how bass fishing has something for everyone! Cool stuff!  :tup:

I like getting bit too much to have the patience for big baits :)

There is some money on that bench right there! Nice collection

Messed with glide baits on Mayfield back in the day and later over here in Spokane for muskies. Caught a few. Overall I don't have the patience for muskies OR glide baits.

I'm usually the guy throwing undersized baits to catch more fish  :chuckle:

I have just started the bigger swimbaits. I have caught only a few so far but that’ll change. My buddy has way more luck with them then me but I know they work!
