Myth, swimbaits only work in clear water. Water displacement, sound, vibration, larger profile and a bass's lateral line so why wouldn't swimbaits and their big signature excel in stained water? In the photo above this Tennessee (non-Californian) bass was caught close to the rocks behind me. Between the rocks the soil is clay and this main channel receives a lot of boat traffic producing highly stained water. SPRO BBZ-1 6" gets the job done!
