Advanced Crankbait Tricks for Coldwater Bass in Grass with G-Man



Gerald Swindle favors using subtle balsa crankbaits when the water is cold; he believes their tight wiggle and muted action better mimic the subtle movements of shad in these systems during the winter and spring months. The Rapala DT 6 in Demon color ( is deadly on the Tennessee River’s Lake Guntersville during the prespawn period, so Swindle commits full days to fishing just this lure based on its proven effectiveness.

He targets grassline edges on points adjacent to deeper water during this time. They’re intersection points that gather schools of bass in transition between winter haunts and spawning flats, and a crankbait is the best way to contact these fish and trigger bites. Rather than change lures to adjust for changes in depth, Swindle keeps the DT 6 in play while adjusting line size to get the bait deeper or shallower for the situation. He also digs into the details on how he fishes the bait around eel grass to prevent fouling.

  1. At the 6:35 mark what is the deal covering his trolling motor power cable? Its maroon, is that for interferance or is that just for looks?

  2. I know there are a lot of rods to chose from for this but what is best? Heard of using the medium moderate and medium light like G-Man but is one better than the other for this technique or would they both work about the same?

  3. Can we start seeing more of him on wired 2 fish? He’s super intelligent with fishing and entertaining.

  4. Them dang Shad and there meth 😂 maybe one day they’ll quit tweaking we can only pray 🙏

  5. He said “ I ain’t showing you nothing else”. I noticed also he didn’t have water temperature displayed on his graph. Maybe it doesn’t matter.

  6. Hey Gerald: Those LMB position habits you described so well; do those position habits apply to smallies?
