Our friend Rob Laveigne has been catching lot’s of shoreline Smallmouth Bass fishing paddle-tail swim-baits in the 3-4″ size and 1/8 – 1/4 oz. jighead.
While most anglers fish plastic grubs like the Lunker City Shaker and Swimfish jigging on the bottom, they also work very well cast and retrieved consistently through the water column and over weeds. The slapping tail action sends out vibrations that call fish in from a distance. Hit’s are usually strong and few fish miss it!
