Greg Vinson shares an easy to fish alternative to a crankbait that flat out catches 'em.
The swimbait marketplace has become swamped with a huge variety of bait designs to cover nearly all bass fishing scenarios. Threading a soft body swimbait on a jighead however is a great way to simply the selection process, and is perhaps the most effective swimbait configuration for the widest range of situations. Elite Series pro Greg Vinson loves throwing swimbaits offshore... basically anywhere he'd fish a crankbait. Greg equates swimbait effectiveness to their versatility - they allow you to cover water fast and vary speed and running depth by simply swapping out jigheads. The other upside is that they often catch the biggest bass in a school.
