How to Fish Beaver Baits for Bass

Beaver Bait Standard For Hawgs

Beaver Bait Standard For Hawgs is a great choice when fishing conditions get tough. Beaver style fishing Baits have been around for the last 15 years. They have been very popular in the bass fishing world! Since the creation of the Beaver style bait there has been tons of money won on this style bait on the professional tour not to mention local tournaments.

Beaver style baits are extremely effective because they mimic the three favorite prey of the bass–crawfish, bluegill and shad. Their profile is the shape of bait fish, while the beaver tail and pinchers give the bait a crawfish look. This provides a 3-in-1 technique in a single bait that increases your odds of matching the forage bass are feeding on that particular day.

My favorite targets to use beaver baits is around woody cover like laydowns, brush piles, stumps and cypress trees. I also like to pitch them into tall bladed grass like tules. They are very effective for punching through heavy vegetation like hyacinths due to their slender profile. These baits attract big bass so make sure the bait is rigged correctly and use the right gear. If not, you risk losing the fish of a lifetime.

For me Beaver Bait Standard For Hawgs Choice is based on these factors. 

  • Beavers will split or tear away on the hookset making them a great choice. The bait is soft enough to get out of the way with the hookset. Giving you a great bite to boat ratio.
  • Great for hard cover such as docks and trees. I will fish it using a 3/8oz weight on 20lb fluorocarbon.
  • Beavers also make a fantastic craw imitation on a shakey head. This presentation skips well on a spinning rod and can be dynamite around docks.
  •  When punching mats and looking for big fish, I go with the a 1/2 – 1.5 oz weight on 65lb braid.
How to fish:

Beaver Baits are great for flipping the bank, dragging a Carolina rig, or finessing stubborn fish with a shakey head or drop shot. There is a beaver for every bass.

Equipment:

The best fishing rod to use with a beaver would be a medium-heavy or heavy, with a length of 7’ 0” or 7’ 0”, and a tip action of fast. For a reel only use a 6:1 gear ratio or a 7:1 fast to get them moving right away. For line, either Fluorocarbon or braid.

Tip:

Whether flipping, pitching or punching thick vegetation. hold your line with one finger. The bites on the beaver are some of the softest and lightest bites you will ever encounter. When you feel the bite give the fish a second before setting the hook. This will greatly increase your bite to catch ratio.


If you’re not using this versatile big fish catching bait, you are missing out. Beaver baits can be used in a variety of situations and are effective almost all year. They are exceptionally effective during the pre-spawn when bass are looking for an easy meal. Tie one on and give it a try this year, you will be glad you did.
