The Underspin is one of the most underrated lures in bass fishing. Most clear water fishermen assume its too flashy and most muddy water fishermen don’t realize their fish can find it. If you’re one of the lucky ones that has given this technique a try during its recent resurgence, you already know how amazing it can be! The under spin may be the most versatile of all reaction baits. It has an effective range with water temps from high 30’s all the way up to 80+ degrees. It can be fished in 50+ feet of water but is equally effective in just inches of water around vegetation.

The key to the underspin is in the subtle nuances. For example, the River2Sea D Walker will cause the bait to rock, roll, and flash more than any other bait we’ve ever seen. The keitech will get bit at virtually any speed and with the quick “spring trick” in this video, can last through dozens of fish. The Blade Runner Spintrix will draw fish with its incredible head wobble but when conditions change the Hog Farmer will catch them with its stable action. Pay attention to the details in this video and you will catch way more bass this Fall!
