Ima Lures Skimmer Grande

The Ima Lures Skimmer Grande is a topwater walking bait that subtly glides across the surface replicating the action of small shad that are often found roaming the surface. The Grande size Ima Skimmer retains the design of the original, but increases the size from 4.5" to 5" in order to mimic lager species of forage that predatory fish feed upon. The Ima Skimmer Grande possesses a slim profile that has proven to be one of the most appealing bass lure shapes ever. As a result of this subtle shape, the lure will glide across the surface softly much like the wake of a lone shad as it seeks refuge from the predators below. Thereís a whole lot to be said simply for this slender profile and silhouette, and the Ima Skimmer Grande is really the only topwater hardbait that has perfected it.


A large part of the Skimmer Grande's action is caused on the ending movement of each zig or zag as the tail-weighted back end of the Ima Skimmer Grande stirs the water slightly causing a natural boil. So every time that the Skimmer zigs or zags left or right, the final movement of the weighted tail interrupts the consistency of the slick surface and the lure slips out barely ahead of the boil, just like a desperate baitfish narrowly escaping a bassís lunge.The Skimmer Grande's action then becomes a non-stop series of ever-widening boils emanating behind it. Itís like having a school of surface-feeding bass on the scene, all boiling the surface behind the Ima Skimmerís tail. If thereís ever anything that gets a non-committal bass to bite, it is other bass feeding in front of it Ė and thatís the competitive feeding cue that the Skimmerís tail-stirring movement sends out to all bass within range of sensing the surface-feeding boils trailing out behind the Skimmer.

The IMA Skimmer Grande measures 5" in length and weighs 5/8oz.

Reviewer: Chris Perez #RBBASSFISHING.NET from Rocklin, CA United States  
The action on this bait is very unique. Also is a silent bait which is key during certain times of the year. #RBBASSFISHING.NET

Reviewer: Ron Howe from Elk Grove , CA United States  
This bait has a unique action like no other, the bait walks but it also dips under water and pops back up when walking, Spotted Bass absolutely cant stand this bait!
