Double Trouble: Fishing Lures In Tandem

How do you trigger the competitive instinct in a bass?

One surefire way is to rig your lures in "tandem" when the situation allows it. Here are some tips on four techinuqes and lures that you can effectively fish in tandem.

Top Water - A "front runner" 8-12 inches in front of your top water popper or spook type bait can be deadly.
Carolina Rigging - Using a 3-way swivel to drag 2 lure choices on a Carolina rig is very effective. One leader should be slightly shorter than the other to give the "chase" effect.
Fluke Rig - The same swivel technique can be used with "fluke" type baits or "sassy shad" type swim baits to catch schooling fish. This is a great rig for catching 2 bass at one time.
Carolina Jig - A traditional Carolina rig with a "jig" weight also offers two options.

The first three examples mimic a predator fish chasing a baitfish, which triggers the competitive instinct in a bass to prove he is at the top of the food chain. Most single catches will be on the front lure.
