Scott Canterbury narrowly missed the final day cut at the Bassmaster Elite Series tournament on the St Johns River in Florida. Scott took the stage for The Bass University to share tips on how he caught bass on a swim jig in vegetation on this tidal river. In this bass fishing class seminar video, Scott talks about the swim jig bait, trailer and tackle he uses to fish a swim jig around vegetation and why he didn't choose a chatterbait or Texas rigged worm. Scott breaks down the seasons for fishing a swim jig and offers tips on when to set the hook, why a long rod is important and his favorite swim jig colors.
