Swimming Baitfish

Product Description

The Swimming Baitfish is a no-nonsense destroyer of big fish!  Large trout, bass, pike, and muskie are looking for meat on their menu, and baitfish, sculpin, shad, and panfish make up a large portion of the diet of these large predators.  The stacked and trimmed deer-hair head of the Swimming Baitfish causes this pattern to dive and splash just beneath the surface of the water as it is retrieved in an imitation of a small wounded fish, while the weed-guard keeps the hook free from debris and ready to bite back when the big fish pounce!   

For the best action, this pattern should be fished with either a floating or intermediate sinking line, a short leader of heavy test (4' of 20lb test), and jerkily stripped through the surface of the water.
