Spent the weekend fishing with Elite Series Pro Brandon Palaniuk. He ended up landing a new PB at 12lbs 4oz. We were talking to a grandfather and his grandson who were fishing the bank at the time. The grandpa was confused as to what we were fishing for when he saw the size of our baits. We told him "Largemouth Bass". As he was still trying to wrap his head around the concept it happened...BOOM!!!

      @lewsiscool You can swimbait from the bank and be successful. The biggest disadvantage is not having the ability to get to your bait when it's hung up or snagged. ...more Throw at your own risk.
