This innovative, triangular shaped Swat Shad displaces large volumes of water due to its large paddle tail action. The Swat Shad is highly recommended in the Sea Bass fishing world and keeps gaining more fans thanks to its effectiveness and modest price.
The Swat Shad was specifically designed to be mounted with a round Texan hook with an articulated Ange Porteux head, which gives it a great wobbling action. The Swat Shad features a belly channel to help rig the hook easily, and dorsal channel to conceal the point of the hook, but does not hinder hook-ups. The Texan rig will allow you to fish this lure in thickly vegetated waters.
There are two small holes in the channels for a Texan hook to be easily rigged, or for a smaller stinger hook. The smaller the hook the more flexible this lure becomes! This setup provides a convincing imitation of a tired fish swimming at the bottom; easy pickings!
