Got my first graph this year and finally starting to learn how to graph schools of active fish. I've never caught offshore fish before and thought it wouldn't be much fun. Man, was I wrong. It was one after another in 30 ft of water! I was fishing 4.8" keitech swim baits with KVD swim bait jig heads. After 1 hour of slaying them I didn't have a keitech bait with a tail (they we're still biting with no paddle tail) and only one jig head left. That left me out $15 for an hours worth of fishing. I under stand we all pay to play, but are there more affordable options out there? I am now addicted to swim baits and am afraid of the cost!
The back 3/4 of a mister twister swimsation makes for an outstanding 4inch soft swimbait. The Charlie Brewer 4 inch bass grubs with a paddle tail are another good inexpensive option if you want a smaller more finesse action
