  • 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.

Baby Brush Hogs Best bait for working the weeds with a 1/4 oz. jig head or Texas style rig. September 24, 2014
Best creature bait on the market I've used many different brands of creature baits but this one is the best by far. I have caught numerous 5 lb fish (huge for maryland standards) on the brush hog including one in a pond that was not known to even have bass at all in it. Anyone who wants to catch fish in pretty much any conditions should buy this bait. It won't dissapoint you. August 4, 2014
Excellent bait This bait alone has caught more bass for me than all other llures that I've used COMBINED. I texas rig it on a 3/O EWG hook with a 1/8 bullet weight and and make short casts towards shore. I let it hit the bottom, bounce it a few times, then swim it back slowly. Caught 23 bass doing this a few days ago in just 2 hours May 2, 2014
none better best soft plastic bait there is! catches more and bigger bass than anything else I've tried. April 27, 2014

Staff Answer
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.

A: 
Hi, due to their design they are perfect for flipping and pitching into heavy cover. Texas rigging the Zoom Brush Hog seems like the most natural way to fish this lure. The Baby Brush Hog was developed to be a Carolina Rigged lure by Zoom. One advantage of the using a plastic Brush Hog is the ability to rig it weedless and work it in and out of heavy vegetation.

Thanks!

A: 
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.

I like to use a 2/0 EWG weightless or texas. In warmer water I sometimes use a 3/0 to speed up the fall. I rarely use a weight with these.

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.

My favorite way to fish this bait is carolina rigged. But weightless and texas rigged works well, too, I just usually use it for my bait 99% of the time when I am carolina rigged

A: 
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

I rig mine texas, but that is in a bunch of Cypress trees and boat docks. I would suggest weightless in weeds. Just depends on where you are fishing!

I cannot say for sure when it comes to rivers or streams but I have had good luck catching smallies in lakes or ponds using Watermelon Red Flake. It just seems to be a great combo no matter what soft plastic you are using or the conditions.

You can never go wrong with green pumpkin. Whenever I fish for smallmouths I like to barely dip the tail in chartruese Spike It but don' t overdo it.The smallmouth and spotted bass seem to like it just a tad bit better that way, in my opinion.

Colors should change with visibility. Rootbeer Green flake has been very good for me in the Upper reaches of the Snake River for Smallies.

I have always had the best success with live crayfish on stream smallies and haven't tried the baby brush hog yet on smallies but would guess a copper/brownish color that mimics crayfish color would be best

If you fish clear water, go with watermelon or green pumpkin. If you fish more turbid water, go with green pumpkin (GP works well in all water clarity types).

I dont know about in your area but I live in southern kentucky and I have had the best luck with junebug followed by pumkinseed and watermelon. Give one of those colors a try and I dont think you could go wrong. Hope this helps.
