The bait manufacturers today do an outstanding job of color replication on both hard baits and soft plastic baits. But color alone does not entice a bass to bite. Movement of your bait can be key when trying to get a bass to strike your lure. Depending on your bait, it can take quite some time to learn how to present a bait that will make the strike instinctive for a bass.

Until recently, I could not get a feel for the bait, so I just didn’t throw it. My spinnerbaits were retrieved at the wrong pace for the size and style of the bait that I was throwing. Notice that most of the things that I was doing were being done too fast.
