There are plastic baits, and then there are Zoom baits. The difference is undeniable. Want proof? Just take a peek into 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. If you're not fishing lizard baits like Zoom's Lizard, then you are missing out on some great action. Most lizard baits are especially deadly during the spring when they are looking to ambush spawn nests, but the Lizard's high-action tail and appendages combined with its lifelike look make it effective all summer long.

Thanks, to the fisherman that clues us in on this, bait. It works very well.

Never used a lizard before. Picked it up, rigged texas, and it has caught me two bass in one day in about an hour. It's pretty good considering how overfished my areas are. I would purchase it in a bigger size next time though, just for casting distance. Glorious action.

If they hit it years ago they'll hit it today, as they say " A bass is and always will be a bass. I've always been told that bass hate lizards and they'll hit them even when they;re not feedin; whether thats true or not I don't know but I do know they hit them at times with a lot of aggression.

Scuppernong color. Like the grape kind of a redish brown color. This is a must for around wood or clay bottom or muddy stained water. I even catch Bass on these in clear water so really all around a super color.
I don't know, either. It looks like a great color, though. I checked other fishing gear sites and can't find it. Try to download the Zoom catalog on the internet. 11 may have been discontinued in favor of a brand new color "Morning Dawn".
I personally love a Texas rig on this bait with a 1/4-5/16 screw-in worm weight (surprisingly doesn't tear the bait up) and a 0/2 Gamatsku worm hook. All you have to is twitch and fall with this rig and the arms and legs will do the work. Oh if it helps, my favorite color is june bug w/ chartreuse tail.
The advantage is more action beacuse the lizard is off of the lake bottom. The longer the leader, the higher in the water it will ride off of the bottom. The advantage to the Texas style rigging in heavy cover is fewer hangups.Sometimes it pays to experiment with the type of rigging to get the best results.
I fish the zoom plastic lizard in black, with a black screw in bullet weight, (actually use that set up in Virginia due to clear water fishing lakes) I find it to be the best way to fish them. It makes the legs go crazy on the drop, and seems to give strikes for me most often. see pics...they are both from Virginia. (Wester Branch, and lake Prince)
Well there are many different opinions so I'll give you mine!
I like to Carolina-rig the baits when the fish are suspended 1-3 feet off the bottom. It gives the fish an easier target to see when it is fluttering down on the initial drop and while dragging the bait.
I believe it also give the bait a better/slower presentation which gives the fish more time to think about hitting. the bait will free fall a little better then when Texas rigged with a noise weight.
I would recommend a Carolina-rig in cold and very warm water when again these fish are suspended off the bottom. Fish in same spots are you caught fish before and you should haul in some nice fish!
C-rigging with a lizard is probably the most basic bait to use with this technique. Main advantage is the natural slow drift the lure has as it trails behind the sinker, making it an easy target for Bass.
Try it in shallow water with an UNPEGGED sinker for a similar effect.
I have used them several times in a Carolina-rig setup. I think because of the tails, it makes the bait look more natural as it floats above the weight at the end of the rig. Try it out and I think you will have positive results. I usually use a 30" leader setup for my Carolina-rigs.
I fish in golf course ponds for largemouth bass, blue gill, and catfish. Sometimes I have a hard time finding the right baits to use for the pond. What baits do you recomend for fishing in mud stained water that is 5 inches to 10 feet deep? You can recomend worms, spinnerbaits, crankbaits and anything else that would work. Thankyou for your help.
You might try using a bright colored lizard. Like Chartruse with red flake or some other color of glitter in the lizard. You might also try adding scent to the plastic baits. When you do catch a fish, slit it open and examine it's stomach contents, then try to match the color of your baits to the color it is eating. But try adding a scent like shrimp oil to the bait first.
For muddy water i would just use eithr a spinnerbait or i would drag a soft plastic on the surface. Ive learned that if you tie on a lizard for example, if you reel it in on he surface so it makes a V in the water, yu will catch a fish in almost any depth. Especially over pads or any type of weeds it will work like magis for bass and pickerel.
Anytime I fish stained water, what I use depends on the sun. If it is bright - like on a sunny day after a big rain - I like to use either a husky jerk or 6" lizard with a lot of flash. If it is overcast, I use a small black spinnerbait with a colorado blade to really get the vibrations going. I jerk the spinner a lot more in stained water, rather than using a steady retrieve. I hope this helps you catch 'em!
