Best Bass Baits for Fishing Muddy Water


Muddy water fishing for bass can be disheartening when you feel like you can’t locate fish or draw a bite. Muddy or murky water inhibits a bass from seeing nearly as well as in clear water. Here are few baits that will help draw the big bite in dark muddy or murky water!

You may even wish to attach a rattle to the jig or into the trailer to add additional rattle and sounds to fire up your bass!

Buzzbaits
