Basstrix Paddle Tail Swimbaits

5", 6", 7" & 8" Hollow Paddle Tail Swimbaits

The Basstrix Paddle Tail Swimbait is a hollow body soft plastic swimbait that possesses an ultra-realistic appearance and swimming action. Considered as the swimbait that started the hollow body craze, the Basstrix Paddle Tail continues to be one of the most popular swimbaits across the country. The Paddle Tail craze began several years ago when a good majority of the Elite Series field employed the bait at the Bassmaster Clear Lake event. The event was ultimately won by Steve Kennedy who reported catching several of his key fish on the Basstrix Paddle Tail Swimbait. Since that time the bait has become a mainstay for bass fishermen all over the country. Available in four sizes, 5", 6", 7" and 8", the bait is actually quite slender and will catch bass of all sizes. The profile of the bait matches a wide variety of forage fish all over the country and the color patterns afford any angler the opportunity to match the hatch in their local fishery. The Basstrix Paddle Tail Swimbait can be rigged a number of ways. When fishing open water applications most anglers prefer a swimbait head. In heavier cover or conditions that may be conducive to snags, angler opt for a weighted shank belly hook that will provide a great deal of weedlessness. Recently, this bait has become a favorite for anglers using the Alabama Rig and similar Umbrella Rig lures. The Basstrix Paddletail Swimbait is available in 5" (5pk), 6" (3pk), 7" (3pk) or 8" (2pk) in a wide variety of color options.

Best hollow body swimbait on the market! March 22, 2017
Reviewer: Christopher Evola from Tracy, California  
The Basstrix Paddle Tail Swimbait has the most action out of any other hollow body I've ever fished. I prefer to rig this bait weedless with an Owner 5/0 EWG with a 1/4 ounce weight. This allows me to throw the bait in and around heavy cover without being hung up. This bait has rewarded me with countless quality fish on the California Delta. Hopefully this review helps you make the correct decision in your next hollow body swim bait purchase.

Go big or don't go April 16, 2016
Reviewer: Jason Duran from Starkville, MS United States  
Theirs swim bait has really come on the scene in a "big" way. It has some great action. It's not to heavy to throw all day long. Team it up with a large weighted hook and get ready for a great day fishing. Don't let the size scare you bass eat big bait fish and of course this bait falls right in the food chain. Cast it out and reel with a steady retreive. Let the road load up when they hit it and sweep hook set and reel reel.
