Top 4 Baits for April: Unlocking the Secrets of Successful Bass Fishing

Join Mike Iaconelli in his latest video as he reveals his top 4 bass baits for April. If you’re fishing in the North, his number one pick is the Lipless Crankbait, also known as the Rattle Trap. This bait triggers a reaction bite, making it ideal for the spring when fish are on the move and looking for food. Mike shares his color and size recommendations for this bait to help you keep it simple.

For his second pick, Mike recommends the ChatterBait, which appeals to a lot of different fish with its ability to imitate various forage. This bait is ideal for fishing in heavy cover and comes in handy when fishing for fish that are starting to use more cover in the spring. Mike shares his top three color picks for this bait that are sure to catch some fish.

Whether you’re in the North or the South, these two baits are a must-have in your tackle box for April fishing. So tune in and get ready to catch some big ones!
