southernswimbait.com was originally founded 2006 solely on bigbait fishing in the South. Today southernswimbait.com is about catching more and bigger fish. Meaning, today we are focused on broadening the fishing topics we discuss and share to more than just bigbait fishing. We fish for a living, which means we fish professionally, we fish full time and we fish both big and small because it’s about catching more and bigger fish.
Who is southernswimbait.com? southernswimbait.com is for the most part, the life, blog, fishing, bigbait journey, and travels of me, Matt Peters. But understand southernswimbait.com is whoever and whatever contributes meaningful discussions to catching more and bigger fish. We are a team, we are individuals, we are the baits and styles we fish, we are the competitions we enter, and we are the places and people we travel and meet, we are our fans and fellow anglers. Bigbait fishing is our love, tournament fishing is our addiction. We are bigbait fishermen with a tournament problem. We want to marry the two, but it requires, simplification, innovation, exploration and the right tools—–and then you have to find the fish! Finding the fish is usually challenge #1, find the fish, and quickly you can assess what they will bite or not.
We have a commitment to bringing fishing to a higher level, a higher place that involves film, photos, interviews, articles, and discussions that are distinctly different from sponsor and major tournament news centric information and discussions, only. Don’t get us wrong, that stuff if great, but not the only thing to talk about in fishing. It’s about catching more and bigger fish, and sometimes that means on tournament day, but its also about culture, lifestyle, travel, exploration, and the search. Its also our business, and how we make our living so understand there are things we don’t just ‘give away’ and topics we won’t be politically correct speaking to always, but I promise you’ll get straight talk and learn how to catch more and bigger fish.
