Win Tournaments with Kicker Swimbait Bass - Zaldain


Share On :

Chris Zaldain is talking about getting the bigger bass bite and winning tournaments. A lot of folks go out and catch limits of decent sized spotted bass, and finish at the back of a tournament pack. If you're ready to take your game to the next level, Chris recommends throwing big baits. You'll be surprised how many 3lb. bass will eat a big bait. This is a seminar about using a swimbait to catch kicker fish. Kicker fish are the kind of bass you need to win tournaments, that 6lb. bass that's separating you from "a limit" and "a winning limit". These big baits can not only elicit bites from big fish, but their different profile can attract bass that are used to seeing the same baits, and draw bass from a distance.

To everyone at Bass University, Thank you guys for all that you do! I signed up for a yearly subscription last year and learned so much from all of the seminars. It was so convenient to find seminars on every topic all in one place. Without Bass University I was always searching the internet to find out new tips and techniques but this really simplified things. I really appreciate you bringing this wealth of knowledge to us anglers so thanks again!
