It should come as no surprise that MLF pro Fred “Boom Boom” Roumbanis counts a swimbait as one of his favorite baits. The Mercury pro grew up fishing them in California and has brought them along as a key weapon in his tournament arsenal. MLF photog Garrick Dixon hitched a ride with “Boom Boom” for a morning of swimbaiting (and maybe a little frogging, too).
