Obvoiously there are may ways to rig this but I do find that a 3/4-1oz bullet style jig head does work best rigged through the side and not through the top. Doug Stange style. For most lakes, I find the realistic nature of hudds are not worth the costs pound for pound unless you are on super clear lakes. This is a great, affordable option that you do not have to be scared to throw around wood, docks, etc. Remember to use the right gear, and learn how to fish swimbaits...don't just swim them haphazardly. This is a great option for all levels of swimbait slingers.

I rig these on a minnow style 1-1.5oz jig head and fish them from 15-30 feet deep in the summer for bass with great success!

I started using these last season and found that when a fish eats this they mean business. I have caught fish from 11 inches to 4 pounds on local lakes and have never had a short strike on one. Every fish I have caught has inhaled this bait, and it will catch largemouth, pike and walleye.

I fished this on my A-rig. I use the rainbow trout pattern because of the trout that are stocked in so many of my state's lake. I use a 3/8 ounce bullet jig head which is to small but I don't want to have to much weight on the already heavy A-Rig. The swim bait has a good action that should catch fish. But I really don't know because the only time I fished it was in the spring, when a multiple bait rig might not work as well.
