I would like to ask for some swimbait tips and suggestions. Do you commit to it all day, or just hitting certain areas of the lake or certain time of day that you are looking for a big bite or a couple keepers? I have used a caffeine shad and swimming shiner on swimbait heads but never used anything like an Osprey or Top Shelf.

Loc: Justin, TX.
Having about 3 different sizes tied own for the day will make you a better swimbait fisherman. Stay with it all day. If you want to just target big fish then big is the way to go. I like to target all the fish that are shallow then work my way up in bait size to hook up with the bigger fish that may be just a little deeper. On Big fish that are spawning but just out of view, I want it slow and suspending.
