How Fish React To Different Lures **Underwater Bite Footage**

Let’s head under water and look at how fish react to a worm, a swimbait, and a jig. Tim presents all 3 baits to a variety of bass and watches their reactions. Its amazing how differently each fish reacts . Some lash out immediately, others ignore one bait entirely and then come to life for the next. Take a look and then share your take aways with us at the end.

The biggest “tell” about how a bass will react to a bait is its dorsal fin. If that fin starts standing up or moving rapidly you know you’ve got a fish that’s fired up for a bait. If you make a change and the dorsal settles, its time for another switch. Its always best to have a variety of baits tied on and ready so you can adapt quickly to each fish’s temperament.

Some of our key baits for sight fishing (and fishing in general) are a dropshot worm, jig, small swimbait, and large swimbait. Below is a breakdown of the specific baits Tim is using in the video. Comment below and let us know what you learned from watching how these bass react.

  1. A good bass video to do would be the different strikes from the same species, according to size…..the most subtle, nearly undetectable bites come from the largest fish….(Largemouth Bass)

  2. It's early spring where I am right now. What this video taught me is about nesting fish and season. Now anything can happen. An aggressive territorial bite with well timed hook set can land a fish. However, it's almost a futile endeavor to fish super early spring. Although any day of fishing is a good day of fishing. Still worth being out there. Good video 👍
