Professional bass angler Chris Zaldain nails it when he says new school grubbing is a finesse swimbait rigged on a ball head jig. Unlike grubs, anatomically accurate baits like the Megabass Spark Shad closely mirror baitfish in appearance and motion while allowing anglers to cover the water column with speed and efficiency. Although they work anytime, Chris emphasizes the effectiveness of finesse swimbaits during abrupt seasonal and weather changes, the onset of fall being case in point. Negative fish still eat these realistic baits when others fall short, and the sharp single hook provides excellent hookups. Additional content includes key rigging points, his two primary retrieval methods, and preferred rod and line setup that blends finesse, sensitivity, and power.
