Best cold water swimbaits for Alabama rigs?

Recommended Posts

I prefer single tail grubs like kalins for the a-rig. I've tried paddle tails but catch more with the grubs

Rage Tail Menace on the outside arms, Rage Swimmer in the middle.

Keitechs are the only baits I throw on an a-rig unless I'm striper fishing.

 

4" swing impact on the outside arms with a 4.5" swing impact on the inside for clean water and a finessy approach

 

3.8" swing impact fat on the outside arms and a 4.8" swing impact fat on the inside for most of my fishing.

 

Key for me is to use heavier heads on the bottom, and lighter ones on the top, to keep the rig running true. It makes a HUGE difference in the amount of bites you get.

Would swing impacts have too wide of a kick for cold clear water? I was thinking of using keitech easy shiners

They kick but they don't roll. Nearly every other swimbait brand rolls side to side, which means a keitech is more subtle and better suited for cold water (I've caught them on a swing impact fat in 39 degree water). Easy shiners have a very fast kick compared to the swing impacts, I usually only find them to be better when you are casting at fish chasing schools of shad, that are keyed in on fleeing baitfish breaking away from the main bunch.
