Spro bbz swim bait

Recommended Posts

I have been tossing the idea of swimbaits for a while . Started with swim jigs and chatterbaits and using small swim bait trailers with pretty good success. Next started with some small keitech swimbaits and my catches jumped up considerably . Tried my first shake on a hard swim bait . Have read reviews and made the jump . As far as the bait goes I went with the slow sink as I wanted the bait to sit higher up in the water column . The slow sink can be crawled slow or worked with pops and jerks like a jerkbait. I also like that you can burn it and just stop and it will slowly flutter down .  I will say that if burn it it will turn into a wake bait .I can Certainly see the fast sink for keeping it down as the slow sink unless slow reeled will rise. The slow sink is 7/8 oz but The fast sink is 1 oz. Great now I'm looking at a dobyns 735c and a tatula hd reel.

Looks like possibly an older female with the bug eyes.

The 735 is an extra fast rod I believe.  Might work well for single hook baits but does not carry a high lure rating.  You may want to look at the 806 or 807 for SB.  A HUD is a great first SB.

Yeah your right dunno was thinkng it was rated for more weight . My goal is to have a swim bait rod for under 2oz.

The Dobyn's Fury 795 will handle that bait and baits up to 3oz well for when you keep moving up in bait size as you realize what you used to consider a big bait, really isn't that big :) Welcome to the swimbait addiction.
