Soft-plastic lizards are deadly for fishing bedded bass. During the spawn, they are the go-to bait for many tournament anglers, including Florida bass pro Scott Martin. But Martin's soft-plastic lizards are even deadlier than the rest. Why? He rigs his backward. His unique setup causes the lizard to plane and glide away from you as it sinks toward the bed. This lets you swim the lure under cover, such as overhanging branches. Moreover, it keeps your bait in the strike zone longer, because when you lift it off the bottom, it swims right back into the bed, where it should be.
