Swimbait Fishing Creeks & Lakes | MMB Ep. 22

Swimbait Fishing Creeks & Lakes MMB 22

After watching a bunch of smallmouth bass swipe and not commit to my modified inline spinner on our last trip, I decided to head back to the creek just ONE more time to use a technique my friend Don (Show-Me Fish Tales) speaks very highly of. It paid off – and we were even able to make a quick pit stop in the evening for some BONUS FISHING!

Smallmouth and largemouth? What a day.

BASS IS BASS… and #TheHuntFor250 continues!
