Gary Yamamoto Swimbait
Love these baits
I have caught more big bass on these swimbaits than any others ones I have used, my favorite time is right after ice melts off the lake, use a 1/4 oz jig head and slow roll tight to cover... Go just fast enough to make the tail swim... When you feel the tail stop thumping... Set the hook

My preferred swim bait
I like this in the 5" model and I stock several colors in my box. Works well on the Mississippi and Missouri rivers for multiple species. Works great in lakes to.
It's a large bait and I have caught largemouth, white bass, hybrid bass and walleye on them so far.
Unfortunately, you can't get a good jig head in the freshwater section. Check out the saltware section for the Offshore Angler® Shad Jigheads. I used them in the 1/2 and 3/4 ounce sizes unpainted.
You also might want to pre-rig and use a little crazy glue/fishing glue/worm glue on the jig head as you make up your jigs. Found that after a couple fish that you don't have the problem with the bait sliding down the hook that way.

A Great Lure
