I usually throw a swim bait but put it down after a few casts. I have caught some on the smaller money minnows and such but not much luck on the bigger swimbait. A fellow TFFer was kind enough to take me out yesterday and I finally got one to bite the bigger swim bait. It was only about a 2-3 pound fish but man he absolutely hammered that thing. I finally know what you guys are talking about as to how addicting that bite is! Plan on using it more now. I know I need to just spend a couple of days only throwing one which is what I hope to do soon.

I'm with you man! I caught my first big fish on one this weekend. Caught it on a custom poured 9" paddle tail. It was a blast.

Congrats! Swimbaits usually catch bigger fish for me. Here's proof at Marine Creek...one of the toughest lake to catch anything of size...

It was a line through. The weight was inside the bait.

I Texas rig swim baits, but I've only been throwing them off and on the last few weeks. Phone stay, I've only tried them because I've been trying everything this winter. I've caught a few on them, all were 1-3 lbs, but I still have no confidence in them.

I'm going to focus in them this spring and summer a little harder.

There were a ton out there Saturday. I was fishing from the bank but the lake isn't low. First time out there since October, but it wasn't low then, either.

Like an actual bass boat with an outboard and run the outboard? Marine creek off 820 by tarrant county college? Lake doesn't look big enough
