Swim baits in stained water?

Recommended Posts

Where i fish, the water is very stained...about 8" of visibility from the surface. :o  Will the tail of the swim baits put out enough vibration for the bass to find them?  I've been wanting to try them for a while but don't want to waste money if i don't have a chance of getting bit.

Something like this...in a 5" version with a jig head

I've caught Bass in both murky and in clear water with Matt's Baby Bass swimbaits.  The paddle tail will let then know it's there 8-).

I had the same doubts so I purchased some Storm brand swimbaits, at about $1 apeice and they will work in stained water and seem to attract the bigger fish as well.

I'm sure there are better swimbaits than these but I wanted to try a cheaper version before spending more for the better baits. I'm sure someone on this site could recommend a few of the better baits. I'll be reading also...........Al
