  • Crawfish/lizard/worm hybrid
  • Slender body with high-action appendages
  • Wholly realistic, super-soft to the touch
  • Salt-impregnated
  • Great for pitching, flipping or swimming
There are plastic baits, and then there are Zoom baits. The difference is undeniable. Want proof? Just take a peek inside your favorite tournament angler's tackle box, and start counting the Zoom bags. For those who lay it on the line every time out, there can be no other choice. Every Zoom soft plastic bait is wholly realistic, super-soft to the touch (for the extra action needed to pull that reluctant money fish) and salt-impregnated, to hold even the most tentative bite.  

Zoom's most popular creature bait, the Baby Brush Hog looks like nothing and everything all rolled into one. This freakish crawfish/lizard/worm hybrid Baby Brush Hog features a slender body with high-action appendages which help slow the fall and create loads of vibration and appealing movement. Great for pitching, flipping or swimming, the Zoom Baby Brush Hogs are deadly on virtually any rig, weightless, Texas or Carolina.
Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 226 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Catches Fish Gotta love it. Catches small ones and big ones. I like to throw green pumpkin with red flakes. Its extremely easy to fish with, so its a perfect bait for someone who is just trying to get into bass fishing, but it is also a great bait even for people who fish their whole lives. Can fish it multiple different ways. I mainly go with texas rigged with/without a bulletweight sepending on where im fishin. Lastly, its great because you can usually catch a couple fish on just one of them. March 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mighty good bait The baby brush hog is a fish catching fool. Texas rigged, flipped, Carolina rigged, even fished weightless it will catch fish. Creeks, rivers , lakes it is one awesome lure. March 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great go to bait I love this bait smaller than the original large brush hog, the tequila sunrise gives the fish something different than the watermelon. I like to use it early in the morning, it reminds me of the old purple worms that was so popular way back when. December 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Go-To bait Ever since I first tried these out they've been producing everywhere I go, even on bad days. I pretty much know I can toss this bait out just about anywhere and get something. I've tried just about every color, even the limited edition ones, and they all work, TRY THIS BAIT if you haven't already. October 24, 2013

A: 
Hi, thank you for your question. The Zoom ® Baby Brush Hog is great bait for flippin' and pitchin’. Dropping them directly over targets the Baby Brush Hogs can often entice strikes as they slowly sink down to the ground. The paddles on the back of the lure offer more resistance slowing down the drop as well as making the drop more erratic and lifelike. Texas Rigging or Carolina Rigging.

I use a Carolina Rig with 3/0 Gamakatsu EWG in most conditions. When cover is too heavy for the C-Rig, I go to the lightest weight Texas rig that I can use. That usually depends on the cover and what I am having to get through.

The best way to fish this in heavy cover is to take a 4/0-6/0 flipping hook rig it Texas style and add a 1/4oz. to 11/2oz. tungsten weight depending on how thick the cover is and a black bobber stop and flip it and picth it.

Try it all to see what they want on a given day. I usually gently hop it back to the boat or drag it in short 6-12 inch pulls. I like to use 1/8 oz slip sinker unless the wind is blowing, then I use whatever it takes to get to the bottom.

The brush hog can be retrieved in many ways. It can be retrieved slow slowly hopping it off the bottom, or they can be swam along like a speed worm. All depending on what the fish wants you have to adjust to them

A: 
I fish mine just like a worm, Texas style 4/0 gammy hook, 15lb flouro, and a 1/4 oz. Bullet weight. Generally when it settles to the bottom ill twitch it a few times and then hop it back to the boat. Usually when hopping I'll take the rod from about 3:00 back to 12:00. You can't fish these too slow.

A: 
It really depends. I catch them most of the time by letting it sink to the bottom and then reeling in 2-3 times and then stopping letting it sit on the bottom a second and then reel again until it's out of the "strike zone" and then I just reel it in. Sometimes I drag it on the bottom and get better strikes and other times just a few inches off the bottom and reeling really slow will generate strikes. It's one of those lures that you can experiment with different retrieves and you'll still catch fish, but the first I mentioned is the most effective for me. Last two times I went out with this one lure I caught 15 and 14, although the biggest was 2 1/2 lbs, but I've caught them as big as 4 1/2 on this lure.

A: 
I have 3 strategies for this bait. If i is weightless you could use a slow steady retrieve and twitch it every 2-3 spins of the reel OR pull it across the top of a mat/plants. If weighted, you could let it touch bottom and slowly twitch it along back to you OR you could let it touch bottom then yank it (3-4 feet vertically) , let it fall/touch bottom and continue until it makes it's way back.

A: 
No easy answer, as usual it depends on the situation. I have the most success targeting fish oriented to structure, rocks, tree stumpps, weedlines, etc. In those situations I generally allow it to fall, jig a couple of times (allowing it to fall each time) and then recast.

A: 
I use the Gamakatsu 2/0 offset worm hook. The hook is very strong as I have handled bass in the 7 to 8 pound range without any problems. The hook is super sharp out of the packet which easly enables it to penetrate the hard upper jaw of the bass. The small wire used by Gamakatsu is just right as some other brands are to bulky or fat. I also use the Florida style 1/8 0z (black) bullet weight when Texas rigging this bait.

A: 
I use a 1/0 or 2/0 offset shank XPS worm hook when using it on a carolina rig. I use the 1/0 in clearer water and on lighter line and the 2/0 when fishing more stained water and on heavier line. I never use any larger hook than that on a c-rig. I use a 3/0 or 4/0 heavy gauge XPS wide gap hook when piching or flipping it.

A: 
I have used a 1 or 2 size hook. These hogs are small, so a smaller hook works well with them. I either fish them weightless, or I use a weighted hook(one with the weight built in the top of the hook) 1/8 or 1/16 weight. Just toss on a point or throw it in the weeds. Toss them off a point or in the weeds. Just make sure the hook isn't too tight on the hog, I have lost a lot of fish with an improper rig set up. Better to lose them them not to find them at all. I found the smaller hogs work better than the larger size. You'll have to find your "OWN" color.

Texas rigged is your best bet. If you're fishing around weeds and have trouble with the baits ability to come through the grass freely try pulling off the large paddles on the rear of the bait. It will swim more freely through the grass and still maintain plenty of action
