4" Swamp Monster
Our 4" ribbed Swamp Monster is similar to the "Rage Bug" and the perfect beaver/creature bait for getting you into and out of tough places. This bait is perfect for flipping into thick cover, reeds, lily pads, grass mats, grass, hydrilla, or any type of cover, where you want to get down into the habitat of the bass. Most bites occur within seconds of the bait entering the habitat.
We've used a medium grade plastisol to give it toughness when being skipped or placed through heavy cover. You'll love it's suppleness, which gives it the action needed to entice the bass into biting.
A single bait has the durability for multiple catches, and in field testing we caught around 4 fish per bait.
The bait is also an awesome trailer when slowly bounced along rock on a wobble head, or used as a jig trailer. It can also be skipped weightless under docks, trees, and overhanging cover, or used as a swim jig trailer and brought through grass. Give em a try, you'll definitely be coming back for more. Tight lines!!
Rigging: The ideal rig we've found for these is Flipping or Pitching into heavy cover. Using a baitcaster with 40+ pound braid to a 15lb fluorocarbon leader, slide a 1/2oz or larger tungsten bullet weight up your line, than tie on a 4/0 Flipping hook with a Snell knot, rig the bait weedless so the hook is buried into the cavity of the bait.
Additional Rigging Options:
Swim Jig Trailer
Texas Rig EWG Weedless
Weedless Swimbait Head
Free Rig Trailer
Durability: Medium, 3-5 fish/bait
Bait Design: The body shape has 2 flanged claws, leading into a oval shaped ribbed body, and 2 additional smaller flanged claws half way back on the body.
Scent: Like all our baits they are heavily scented with our Phat Juice which is a Craw/Leech/Shad combination.
Floating: Yes, Claws
