This is the clearest Underwater finesse fishing footage we’ve ever captured! We even included the “above water” angle so you can get a full picture of what is going on. These bass can’t resist the drop shot and the finesse tube.
Spring smallmouth are incredibly aggressive, especially when the spawn begins. Its very educational to watch how they interact with the finesse baits. We were amazed to see that the fish’s dorsal fins stand up as soon as the baits touch the surface of the water. Before they can see the worm they’re already on high alert, waiting for it to arrive.. It makes you wonder what else they’re aware of!
