How do you all fish a swimbait? I have a few (zoom swimmer 5") and I think I will throw one on my next trip. So far, I have it rigged weight less but curious to know if I should add some weight. Thanks in advance!!

Don't overthink it. Just start out throwing them in the same aces you through a squarebill, medium diving crankbait or a spinnerbait. Chunk and wind in tbe way you see a baitfish move.

I like a weighted hook

Owner Weighted Twistlock Hook

As Mark said, anywhere I would throw a crankbait or spinnerbait

Ledgehead is all I use, I'm very pro American made and I was fortunate at the time to see it's development first hand fishing it long before Neal or Gross got their hands on it.
Straight out of Fringe's shop unpainted the Ledgehead was a no brainer.
