Tatulatard Posted March 6 Share Posted March 6 As someone new to swimbaits since last year I have now only recently discovered that crawling a hudd with a wedge tail in coldwater is a thing. This sounds like the 1st swimbait presentation I should try this season targeting big fish off points transitioning from winter to spawning coves. Great. There is one problem. All the 68 special rof 12s are all backordered. As a possible alternative to the 68 special I see there is a savage gear mullet in what I assume is a slow sink 6" and 8" as well as a fast sink 6" only. They are line throughs with hopefully a top hooking option like other SG baits. The fat wedge tail and narrow base of body there the tail is located gives me hope that these may be more willing to thump at slow speeds compared to their pulse tail trout. There is a jig hook pulse tail but it's small and my experience with jig hook SG trout boot tails is that they are nose heavy and will plow into the bottom rather than belly slither. These mullet line throughs look like a decent 68 alternative but there are no reviews? I have an 8" and 6" on the way. Not that I've ever caught a fish on a hudd to compare but I can give some feedback once I fish them. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
