Rated 5 out of 5 by Acco good item nice item I loved to use I caught sea bass Every time the effect is more than good. December 8, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1crazycranker Excellent little swimbait This is an excellent shad imitator. The tail has great swim action. If you rig this bait on one of Yamamoto's swim bait jig heads the bait comes alive with added body action. October 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Great pike bait! This is a great bait for pike when you match it up with a 1/2 oz shad style jig head. You can cast it a mile and etreive it fairly quickly without getting hung up in the weeds too badly. Give it a try! DJ September 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by jbilyeu swim bait "I like this bait when it is tough out and they just won't hit big baits. You can throw it in grass, rocks, points, docks, etc. It is very versatile and for me it is best on braid when fishing for stripper I would like it see it with some more realistic eyes on it. This is a great choice on a swim jig as well, and not everyone is doing that for sure." July 30, 2012

A:Gary Yamamoto has a specially designed jig head. It looks a little primitive but it really makes the swimbait come alive by giving it body and tail action. Other heads will only result in tail action.

A:In clearer water 05 or 06 would be a natural choice to imitate bluegill. In stained water 08 or 18 provides a more defined profile and would be a good choice. If you have real clear water and some sun, 31 wouldn't be a bad color to try in addition to 05 and/or 06. Good luck.
