RR Striker Swimbait 3 3/4”
I was impressed with this bait before it even touched the water. I purchased the Baby Bass w/Silver –Pearl color and was blown away by how natural it looked in the sunlight. On the first trip out I paired it with a Lunker City white/chartreuse swimbait jighead found at https://lunkercity.com. About ten casts into the float trip my client hooked into a trophy smallmouth and followed that by countless more. One plastic swimbait last about 3 to 4 fish before becoming damaged beyond re-hooking. The bait looked exceptional on the fall and swam true with lots of kicking action.
Smallmouth (SM) Killer 4 ½” in Bluntnose Shiner
A super finesse plastic will still move even when you are completely still. The softness of the bait and size just add to the unbelievable action on a drop shot, shakey head, or texas rigged. Just throw a smaller sized worm hook (I like the award winning Texposer worm hook by Lunker City ) and fish it weightless, almost like a plastic jerkbait.
2 3/4” Fat Stic
I sent Robert a few photos of some of our local baits/minnows/chubs I had trapped in nearby rivers. He immediately sent me a couple Fat Stick’s in a custom clearwater Dk. Baby Bass color to test out! I paired it with one of his Tactical Finesse jigs and it was on! On the second cast I had almost got the bait back in, when it was hammered by a nice 17 in. smallmouth bass (which gave me a great close quarters fight.) All the bass took that bait very aggressively that day. I would just jump it quickly through pools and runs in the river and get strikes constantly. He put together a great line of colors like Gumbo, Bluntnose Shiner, Baby bsss w/ silver pearl and will flat out minnick live bait feeding and escaping on the river or lake bottom.
