After lakes, rivers and reservoirs heat up under the summer sun, the underwater cycle of life is in full-swing. There’s an abundance of food for fish of all sizes, and it’s during this period that anglers can catch bass, walleyes, northern pike and other species on a wide variety of presentations. That said, one of my favorite — and most effective — lure types for catching larger predators is a swimbait.
Check out my video below where I discuss a few simple ways to rig and retrieve swimbaits. They are deadly during the summer — don’t pull away from the dock without a good selection of swimbaits!
