When recently asked to identify his best bass tricks, professional bass fishing star Troy Lindner didn’t hesitate. “Lately, I’ve been fishing this new swim jig combo and really dropping the hammer on some good fish. Everywhere I’ve thrown this thing, big bass have been jumping all over it—shallow water pads and ‘rushes in northern lakes to tullies in the California Delta. It’s just been a really slick trick.”
Lindner, who won the 2012 FLW EverStart Series event at Lake Havasu, Arizona, is one of the rising stars in bass angling, with countless other tournament wins to his credit. Before revealing Lindner’s killer swim jig combo, consider that in the weeks prior to breaking this article, several other topnotch anglers called to spill the beans on an incredible new bait they’d been using to crush fish. Not coincidentally, everyone was sharing the same secret.
