Fishing Multi-Species Moving Baits | Bass, Crappie & Bluegill

S&B - Ep6 Midwest Fishing Multi-Species Moving Baits

Midwest Multi-Species Fishing – sounds like a good time to me! This year, the MOVING BAITS have been absolutely smoking, from chatterbaits to topwater – although my new favorite technique is by far a jerkbait. This is followed closely by another new favorite from last year: micro-swimbaits.

One of my favorites can be seen here in depth.

Today, we hit the water with my only golden jerkbait… a no-name model from yesteryear that worked… well… it worked surprisingly well, landing a few bass and my PB Jerkbait Crappie.

After I got frustrated with the jerkbait trebles picking up too much of the Illinois muck I was fishing through, I switched to a Kalin’s Crappie Scrub. This little dude was paired with a 1/16 ounce Kalin’s simple ballhead jig (which has a relatively short shank – which is important) and it was lights out for the panfish.

Today was an extremely fun, productive round of fishing even though I was pretty limited on time!
