I don't usually bass fish..( crappie is my thing ).. but when I do, I've always used zoom plastics...so I'm not really up on all the new companies and products on the market.my nephew and my son are tired of crappie and. cat fishing, so I'm taking them bass fishing this weekend...funny thing is I've caught more big bass while crappie fishing, than I ever did bass fishing.

If you want something that will float with a hook in it, you want elaztec or something with air chambers in it.

Zoom plastics, and all other 'normal' plastics, do NOT float. Put a 4\0 hook in one and drop it in the pool- sinks like a rock.

All of our baits float....you don't necessarily need elaztec to float a hook...just the right plastic mix...our rana4.0 floats a 4/0 Owner ewg plus...

Looks like the Grande Bass Airtail baits float pretty damn well from the looks of this video.

I am going to give some of them a shot.

I was confused about the zoom trick worm until I realized they make two versions-the original
which does float and the salt plus which does not.
