“Tackle Tuesday”

This week’s Tackle Tuesday feature is the new Strike King Rage Swimmer. They come in two sizes, a 3.75 and 4.75 inch, and I prefer to use a 3/4 ounce Strike King Squadron jighead to fish it. I like to throw the Rage Swimmer on those finicky offshore fish, especially the ones that are grouped up on Shad.

As the summer draws closer, schools of big bass are going to start showing up off shore.  We recently had a chance to test the Hog Tie Underspin from Hog Farmer Baits. Although the conditions were not optimal for fishing a big hair jig we had to give it a shot. The Hog Tie is a hybrid somewhere between a buck tail and a underspin that fits the bill when bass are feeding on bigger bait. The unique blend of proprietary premium synthetics, flashabou, and Krystal Flash accents teamed with the willow blade make the Hog Tie a real fish ...
