like a lot of folks I've been trying some of the swimbaits and the last couple years I've had some luck. So far the 5 in zoom swimmin fluke in watermelon pepper is the main bait I've had luck with. I've tried it on swimbait jig heads, and screwlock weighted hooks but caught by far the most on a trig just strolling it thru grass.

Looking at tacklewarehouse all these plastic paddletails look alike to me. Every bait company has some. Any baits in particular you folks have had luck with?

By the way, I hang out here every spring until ice out because this is the best bass site/forum ever! Nothing else comes close that I've found.

The best I have found,especially for fish with teeth, is the Berkley flat back shad.

Fringe Tackle makes some of them most incredible baits I've ever fished. They are works of art.

your right about the pike! I've lost 5 black and blue jigs in an hour before, no way I'd buy an expensive hard swimbait up here.
