Small swimbaits are great for catching numbers of bass! In early Fall the big bass school up with smaller fish and the finesse swimbait is a great way to get big bites from giant bass that wouldn’t normally eat such a small meal. If you’ve got baitfish in your lake, you’re probably missing out on a fantastic finesse swimbait bite right now!
Unlike their larger cousins, finesse swimbaits can be fished on standard tackle. Depending on the size of the head you choose they can be fishing on anything from a light spinning rod to a heavy jig rod. The concept is the same as throwing big swimbaits but you’re much more likely to get steady action throughout the day.
The key to small swimbaits is to match the size of baitfish in your lake. If you’re seeing the bass chase tiny minnows, don’t be afraid to drop down to a little 2.8 keitech. If big baitfish are present, upsize your offering to match. Below is a breakdown of some of our favorite heads for different size swimbaits.
