Ima Lures Skimmer

The Ima Lures Skimmer 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 Ima Skimmer is unique among hard plastic topwater stickbaits in that only the Ima Skimmer has the slender body shape of a 5″ soft plastic stickbait. This slim profile has proven to be one of the most appealing bass lure shapes ever. Thereís a whole lot to be said simply for this slender profile and silhouette, and the ima Skimmer is really the only topwater hardbait that has it.


A large part of the Skimmerís action is caused on the ending movement of each zig or zag as the tail-weighted back end of the ima Skimmer stirs the water wildly causing a large boil. So every time that the Skimmer zigs or zags left or right, the final movement of the weighted tail stirs the surface into a large boil, and the Skimmer slips out barely ahead of the boil, just like a desperate baitfish narrowly escaping a bassís lunge.The Skimmerís 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 is 4.5" in length and weighs 3/8oz.

5 of 5 Unique Walking Bait March 1, 2017
Reviewer: Sean Wayman-RBBASS  
When you need something a little different this is the one. When you kill the movement on this bait the tail end sits down in the water and shows the fish something different.

5 of 5 Wonderful bait! November 9, 2016
Reviewer: Rich Hale #RBBASS from Turlock, CA United States  
This bait excels when fish are eating on top but have seen the big noisy baits. The skimmer skips and darts like a wounded bait fish. The size is perfect for those bass that are being finicky.
