Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big Spotted Bass on the Z9R Last week it was a big striper on the Z9R and this week it's a big spotted bass from Lake Lanier. The spotted bass on our lake don't get much bigger than this one. This bait matches our # 1 bait source, the Blueback Herring perfectly. If you live on one of our southern lakes with blueback herring, This bait is a must! October 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by pike love it Bought baby bass for a 1 week Canada trip and the pike loved it. Problem was they smashed the lure in half after 2 1/2 days....thus only 4 stars...but still def buying more for this years trip March 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Convincing stripper bait I am a fly fisherman but attempted to try and catch the trout eating stripped bass at Willow Beach, Az. I have seen others catch then using large jointed trout colored lures, but I was not so lucky. This lure has good action and good color, it looks like a trout swimming by. Certainly will try it another day. February 15, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by doesnt swim I've had these before and they were perfect but when i got these u have to reel as fast as you can just to get a little movement. August 22, 2012

A: 
there are a few different ways to use this bait. i usually use it on a seven foot, medium heavy action baitcast rod on twelve pound test braided line (i use spiderwire, but any braided line will suffice) you can retrieve it like a crankbait, or when the bite is tough, i'll hold the rod tip at about a 45 degree angle, and retrieve the bait slow, just enough that you can feel the vibration in the rod tip. but there is no wrong way to use this bait try different retrieves to see what the fish want.

Northern Pike

Details: 
I am starting to fish for northern pike and need some new swimbaits. Is this a good one? What color should I get for dirty water. Stained to very muddy. I live in New York and need a cold water lure to swim nice and slow. Would this work?

A: 
this good and attractive till the pike are active, you can retrive slow and adjust your deep by pausing it a while...pike will attack on pause moment or jerck it now and then. more the water is dirty more strong must be the color contrast...the swim has a little rattle in to it that helps in this situation....and while it swim produce a lot of vibration due to the multy elements movements.

A: 
Match the color to whatever baitfish (or as close as you can) are in the waters you fish Northerns for. This is my favorite hard swimbait. I prefer the ones without the bill, and use the XXX Shad for largemouth and stripers. The paint chips after a while, but this bait catches fish. Replace the rear treble with a smaller hook. As far as speed goes, you need a moderate retrieve to get the full action from the jointed body. But, you can twitch and pause as well, and I get a lot of strikes on the pause.

Yeah that looks like a good color for most situations. I understandwhy you would only want to buy one. The XXX shad reminds me of the sexy shad color. I also like the green shad color you just buy one I would buy the XXX shad.

I'm using a 30lb braid with a 2ft fluorocarbon leader. The fluorocarbon leader is 25lb test Bass Pro XPS. You are going to want that heavy leader with the price of these things. You definitely don't want to break one off.

A: 
I would at most think of your scenario if its cold or warm.you know cold water you would use lighter line because fish wont be as agressive. in warmer conditions use heveryer line. now with a swim bait I would recomed to use mmmm..... 20lbs depending on what reel you have smaller the reel smaller the line and dont try to get to caried away try to get as close as you can get to the perfect balance between line and reel ratio.

A: 
truthfuly if it swims bass will eat it. the qestion you should be asking is what color should i use in clear muddy or stained water.in clear water use 53 or even a 67, in muddy water use 72 and 50, in stained water use 53,67,and71. this will insure a strike on your lure.

A: 
It sinks Pretty Fast, But Fishing with the new 6:1 Gear Ratio Curado Reel,
I was fishing in 2-3 feet of water and able to keep the lure 6 inches under the surface with no problem, it does not Dive, you regulate depth by how fast you retreive the lure

It sinks about a foot a second. It does not dive. It stays at the depth you start retrieving depending on how fast you crank.
