How to rig a Swimbait


Fishing a swimbait in open water is an effective method for covering a large body of water quickly. Swimbaits provide life-like action that imitates a baitfish. I often like to fish swimbaits with a fast retrieve just below the surface to draw large bass up from below or through schools of mullet incase a redfish is nearby.


Below is a diagram of how the swimbait should look when rigged properly.

There are plenty of manufacturers out there to choose from just make sure you “match the hatch” when using these lures.

Growing up in Central Florida, I grew to love the sport of fishing. Bass fishing quickly became an addiction when I purchased my first kayak in 2006. I then explored saltwater fishing and learned more skills & tactics to make me a better angler. I have traveled all over Florida chasing inshore species and Largemouth Bass. I am fortunate enough to have used my added skill of photography to create content for fishing related companies, Tagline development for social media outlets, & attend Media at events.
