Swimbaits aren’t just for California bass. This youtube user, russe048 has put together an amazing demonstration of using his GoPro cameras and the Mattlures Ultimate Bluegill swimbait on these Alabama largemouth bass.
Mattlures, made by East County’s Matt Servant, basically got their start right here on sdfish.com. With Matt showing off his then hand carved wooden trout lures in our message forums, before there was even a name for them.
Matt has propelled those handmade baits into one of the most realistic swimbait product lines ever produced. His line includes both hard and soft baits, in dozens of patterns and designs covering every body of water in North America. He has baits to swim from top to bottom, baits to jig, baits to deadstick and they accurately imitate everything from baby bass and bluegill to giant 13″ trout. He even has an East Coast Series, offering perch, yellow bass, and walleye patterns.
His original bluegill bait was one of the most revolutionary sight fishing baits ever made, and has hundreds, probably thousands of giant trophy bass to its credit.
