Swimming SnakeTM Lure Versatility
Swimming SnakeTM lure is proving to be one of the most versatile bass baits on the market, and it can be fished in almost any manner from Jerk-Bait to Crank Bait to Topwater.
Crank Bait Method
With the crank bait method Swimming SnakeTM lure may be steadily retrieved parallel along the edge of cover to simulate a snake steadily swimming in the clear water past the cover.
Alternatively you can cast the bait into cover when you have Swimming SnakeTM lure Modified Texas rigged and then steadily retrieve it directly through and out of the cover.
The Standard Jerk-Bait Method
In this technique, the bait is cast into or next to the edge of cover. The bait is allowed to sink naturally then is gently twitched upward from one to several times and allowed to settled back to the bottom between twitches.
What you are trying to simulate here is a snake approaching the bottom then attempting to return to the surface. When bass are tentative, use several twitches so that the bait stays in front of the bass for a longer period of time. After a few twitches, hop the bait a few feet to the next spot until you have completed the retrieve.
Swimming SnakeTM lure can be retrieved across the top of the water. To achieve a topwater effect, retrieve the bait at a speed that keeps it about 1" below the surface. This approach will disturb the top of the water and create the trailing wake characteristic of a snake moving through the water.
Do not bring the bait fully onto the surface; otherwise, you will reduce the drag forces that cause it to revolve - just below the surface creates the wake effect and keeps the bait rotating.
