Mattlures Dead Twitch Swimbait
The Mattlures Dead Twitch Swimbaits are 10" jointed swimbaits designed to be twitched and ripped across the surface to imitate large forage species bass feed upon. Spurred by the success of the 13 inch Dead twitch swimbaits, Mattlures decided to design a slightly smaller, yet equally appealing 10 inch version of the trophy bass Dead Twitch swimbait. There were many of requests for a smaller version that could be thrown on standard heavy swimbait gear - now, with the 10" version, anglers have had their demands met. The bait has been scaled down to a much more manageable 10 inches - while still weighing 7oz. The realism of this bait is second to none, representing the finest work Mattlures has ever done.
The Dead Twitch is a floating single jointed, two piece, soft bodied bait with a hard interior core. The bait is more than just a dead stick bait - it can be twitched, ripped and walked across the surface to mimic more active species of baitfish such as hitch, gizzard shad and stocker trout. With a little practice, the Dead Twitch swimbait will easily do a 180 degree turn, ending up face to face with any followers. The bait can be walked slowly across the water's surface with a few lighter twitches and anglers can even make it tail slap or dive with harder twitches. When employed as a dead stick bait, the top of the back sits slightly above the water with the top fin clearly visible to the angler. When working it in this manner, the wind and water movement will do all the work. The bait's realism is so incredible that bass won't be able to resist. Simply let the Dead Twitch bob in the ripples of the water and the bait comes to life. The fins and tail section each have their own movement adding to the natural appearance of this bait. It looks like a freshly stocked injured trout. Big bass and Stripers canít resist such an easy big meal. The Mattlures 10 inch Dead Twitch Swimbait weighs 7 ounces and comes with premium Owner treble hooks.
