I don't usually spend this much on a single lure but it looked like it could work some and it was 12 dollars off so I had to.

Anyone ever use any of these baits. Seems like they are quality baits being hand made

Looks like a homemade bait.

Looks like it will hang up easily

If it was expensive enough to be $12 off, I'm out.

Fish it in open water, like a spinner bait or rattle trap. I would definitely keep it away from the brush and rocky bottoms. I bet that thing would kill running it around the outsides of sunken trees (I wouldn't throw it in the middle of the brush but I would run it lateral to the brush.) or the boating channels that are left when boats make lanes through heavy vegetation. I'd spray some Bass attractant spray on it too. Especially with all those nice hairs absorbing the attractant.

I didn't notice this until I finished but does it swim on it's side instead of on it's belly because the hook is on the side?

Just looking at it; I believe the design is for the surface. The bait will lay flat on the surface and represent a dying bait fish like a Tilapia. Just twitching that bait to make it do the 180 degree turns will get you a big fish. Work it in the shallows around heavy cover. Making it do the turns, then let it sit and repeat. It may also walk from side to side like a spook. You will just have to try.

It actually swims like a normal fish and then when you stop reeling it will flip to its side and slowly float up like a dying fish.

If I were a big ole pig I'd eat it! Video of the bait in action looks awesome! Let us know when you catch your first one.
