2X Bassmaster Classic champion tournament bass fishing champion Jordan Lee returns to The Bass University in Gadsden, AL in the winter to talk about finesse swimbait fishing. This technique will catch largemouth, but it's outstanding for spotted bass and smallmouth. In this bass fishing master class video seminar, Jordan Lee breaks down all the tackle and equipment you will need to fish this technique. Once you have the gear, Jordan shares the details of rigging (including color choices, jighead sizes and when to user and underspin). With a bait rigged up and on the right tackle, you'll learn how to fish this bait effectively to catch bass, and Jordan Lee will share tips on locating the bass using your electronics and targeting key areas where spotted bass live.
