Hard. Soft. Line thru. Swimbait hook in the nose. What type of big swimbait?

Mark Perry on here makes some nice hand pours, as does Fringe tackle.

GREAT swimbait options available on the Swimbaits page on Oak Ridge Marina's website! Also gives you a little overview of the different types of swimbaits and how each is rigged

Our best-sellers have been the Smash-Tech Convicts and the Rago Weedless swimbaits.

Osprey Tournament Top Hook Swimbait

If you're talking about soft swimbaits, then go with the 7"; my favorite swimbait for clear water. I threw these a lot last Summer and managed to catch a lot of fish on these. The 7" truly has a "big fish bait" feel to it and the fish love it. The swimming action on these is second to none. I've used Optimum baits in the past but these out-perform the Optimum's by far. I seemed to catch more fish per bait on the Osprey's. These are truly unique swimbaits.

I'm brand new to swimbaits up until 2 weeks ago I had never thrown one. I literally threw 3 casts with a Huddleston 68 and was addicted that fast. True story before I even unloaded the boat is hadB placed an order for 4 more. Can't go wrong with a huddleston

^ He knows.

If you're looking for a great big weedless swimbait, the smash tech convict is by far the best one out there.
Rig it on a 10/0 owner beast swimbait hook with a few suspend strips wrapped around the shank of the hook.
The key to this bait is the hook slot in the belly of the bait. This allows for better hook ups.

3:16 for sure! James and I tore them up that day. Our best five were just under 45 lbs. You can catch many fish on one as well before they get tore up. They have weedless, line through with treble hooks, and glide baits. You can't go wrong with 3:16.

They tear up to easy. You can't catch many fish at all on one before you have to change them out.
