A new popular way of targeting bass is by utilizing a finesse spinnerbait, which is simply just a smaller and lighter spinnerbait. This method is often best during the pre-spawn and early spring bass season. Often bass during these time periods are more lethargic and a finesse spinnerbait can be fished slower and has a smaller profile, which will often pick up more bites than a large spinnerbait.
Some of the best places I have found to fish a finesse spinnerbait is in water that is less than 10 feet and has wood or other structure that bass will relate to. Another great time to fish a smaller spinnerbait is when a cold front has moved in and bass quite hitting the large spinnerbaits or I have found during when fishing pressure is greater such as tournaments a smaller profile spinnerbait will fill your livewell more quickly. The following spinnerbaits are excellent finesse spinnerbaits that will put more bass in your boat.
Next time your out and the fishing is tough and the bass just won‚Äôt seem to hit your double willow spinnerbait tie on a finesse spinnerbait you won't be disappointed. Just remember fish it slower and make multiple cast to structure and you will be rewarded with a boat full of bass.
