Walking baits, also known as bumping baits, sends the bait to the fish instead of the fish coming to your bait. This is an effective way of fishing in faster moving waters.
This method is hard work and can take a fair amount of time to perfect, but could mean the difference between weighing and skunking on tournament day. Sometimes bumping produces quantity more than quality, but a decent bag of fish can find you in the winner’s circle.
When heading out to bump, make sure you bring a well-rested arm and snacks that you can eat one-handed (or no-handed when that fish decides to hit).
