Swim a Bait - Feat. Paul Bailey & Patrick Touley © AFTCO

Bass fishing takes on numerous forms, from the simplicity of backyard pond fishing to the apex of competitive tournament angling. Yet, within this pursuit lies a distinct niche: trophy hunting via swimbait fishing.

Unlike traditional baits, swimbaits stand out in their uniqueness within an angler's arsenal. Ranging from six to twelve-plus inches in length and weighing two to sixteen ounces, these baits require a quiver of specialized equipment and a different mindset. The adage "big bait, big fish" is the guiding principle, firmly centered on catching the biggest bass in the lake, armed with the largest baits from your tackle box.
