The Bang StickZ is a must-have when conditions call for a little bit of finesse! Designed for Neko rigging, its durable, buoyant ElaZtech construction makes for easy wacky rigging without the need for o-rings and allows the tentacled tail to float off the bottom at rest. Don't hesitate to try it on a shaky head, Texas rig, or Carolina rig as well!
Taking a time-tested softbait profile, scaling it down to Ned Rig proportions, and building it from naturally buoyant ElaZtech material results in a finesse bait that is a necessity for serious bass anglers. The ribbed body traps fish-attracting bubbles and provides an extra-soft feel, while its oversized appendages trigger bites as the lift off the bottom at rest. The TRD BugZ is equally suited for rigging on a ShroomZ jighead or a Finesse BulletZ weedless hook for dragging through cover.
The culmination of nearly a decade of testing and tweaking ElaZtech finesse baits, the TicklerZ is arguably the most effective Ned Rig bait ever made. Sporting a thick, dimpled body that mates seamlessly with ShroomZ and NedlockZ jigheads, its buoyant construction and widely spread quad-tentacles cause this bait to come alive on the bottom. Designed for bass but equally effective for a variety of fresh- and saltwater species, the TRD TicklerZ is a must-have regardless of your target.
Created to attract all species of fish, the action of the curl tail is the key. Fast or slow, shallow or deep, these pre-rigged natural beauties really work. That’s why novice to pro anglers always have them on hand.
The Sweet Beaver from Reaction Innovations is a soft plastic bait that is responsible for the creation of the beaver style category of baits. Introduced by Beaver Lake master Andre Moore, the Sweet Beaver first hit the market after Moore won two FLW Tour events on Beaver Lake in Arkansas. Subsequently, the Sweet Beaver has its name. Since then its continued to produce results all over the country and spawned numerous similar baits and even its own category of soft plastic baits; Beaver baits. The Sweet Beaver is 4.2" long and matches the look and profile of many types of forage that bass feed on. The Beaver can be used to mimic a crayfish, bluegill, or baby bass - certainly there are even more. The Sweet Beaver comes in several "unique" color patterns so be sure to take a look at all of the different products, we carry approximately 40 colors. Each color has proven to be successful in the right situation. The Sweet Beaver is 4.2" long and comes 10 per pack.
The punching technique is among the most popular uses for the Reaction Innovations Sweet Beaver due to the compact nature of the bait that enables it to easily slide into heavy vegetation. Additionally, the bait's solid plastic body is just the right size for efficiently rigging a stout straight shank flipping hook in a weedless manner without sacrificing hook penetration. When fishing the bait in this manner most anglers turn to the following setup:

The Z-Man DieZel MinnowZ are soft plastic swimbait bodies featuring unparalleled softness, excellent swimming action, and durable ElaZtech® construction combining to create the ideal fish trap swimbait. Inspired by Z-Man's renowned three-inch MinnowZ, freshwater and inshore anglers alike with find the DieZel MinnowZ to be a great choice for mimicking baitfish species of all types. Saltwater coastal anglers along the California coast have long turned to swimbaits to catch the calicos, kelp and sand bass that roam through the paddies looking for an easy meal. While there are plenty of options currently on the market, nothing quite provides the durability of the DieZel MinnowZ which are available in all the hottest coastal colors. Similarly, freshwater fishermen will enjoy the tail kicking action of the DieZel minnow when targeting big bass, stripers and wipers that relate to baitfish.
As you can see in the photos, the Z-Man DieZel MinnowZ are just the body section of the swimbait, meaning anglers need a swimbait jig head to rig and fish these correctly. That's actually the beauty of these durable little swimmers. Designed with a flat edge, the DieZel MinnowZ lay flush against swimbait bullet jig heads and offer the perfect platform for the jig head. Add a dab of super glue and press the two together to realize the most durable combination of any fish trap style swimbait.
Plastic fishing baits have been around since you first went digging around in your granddad’s tackle box. You probably learned early on that soft plastic baits caught fish, but that you needed to buy a lot of them because they tore up easily when the fish were biting. Z-Man’s proprietary ElaZtech® material is the toughest soft plastic bait you will find on the market today—period. It stands up to the most aggressive fresh- and saltwater game fish, and remains fishable after several catches. ElaZtech is a remarkable material that is soft and pliable, and as much as 10X Tougher than other traditional soft plastic baits. ElaZtech resists nicks, cuts, and tears better than traditional soft plastic baits. No matter the quarry, ElaZtech soft fishing baits can handle it. These plastic fishing baits can withstand getting hammered time after time by aggressive largemouths, toothy barracudas, and anything else you can get to bite.
A plastic fishing bait is no good if fish can’t see it! Unlike other plastic fishing baits, ElaZtech is a naturally buoyant material that floats off the bottom and creates a more visible target. A more visible target means more strikes and more fish-catching opportunities. With traditional plastic fishing baits, this means going through a lot of soft plastics. ElaZtech baits, however, maintain their fishability despite all the abuse, and also boasts one of the highest fish-per-bait ratings in the industry. To top it off, ElaZtech, unlike most other soft fishing baits, is non-toxic and contains no PVC, Plastisol or Phthalates.
Word of ElaZtech is spreading like wildfire as these soft plastic baits gain traction along the tournament trails. Our new line of flipping & punching soft plastic baits puts ElaZtech to the test in the heaviest cover. Whether wood, grass mats, rock piles or dock posts, these plastic fishing baits can stand up to the flip, the bite and the fight. Rig it up and hook up again, and again ... And again. ElaZtech soft fishing baits don’t just stop at our CrawZ, StreakZ or WormZ. Our new Finesse ShadZ offer versatility not found in any other soft fishing bait. Its action on a drop shot is extremely lifelike because of its supreme buoyancy. And, if they stop eating the drop shot, simply rig it on a shaky head for a finesse rig that blows away any other soft fishing bait. It’s the perfect shad imitation in a durable and deadly package.
Taking the Ned Rig concept to a new level, the thick-bodied Giant TRD pairs seamlessly with the new Mag ShroomZ to create a supersized jig-worm package with a proven, fish-catching profile that is ideal when big bass are the target.

The Sand Worm from Berkley's Gulp line of soft baits, is one of the most popular saltwater Gulp baits as it appeals to many species of saltwater game fish. The Gulp Sand Worm Assorted colors to meet your fishing needs. The Sand Worm looks and feels like a natural sandworm and should be rigged and fished like live bait. We offer the Berkley Gulp Sand Worm in two sizes: 2" and 6". The quantity varies based upon the size.
A common marine annelid is the clamworm, or sandworm (Nereis).
Sandworms live in muddy sands in the intertidal
and subtidal zones of inland bays and marshes. When the tide
comes in, sandworms crawl around on the bottom and prey on tiny
invertebrates. When the tide moves out, sandworms burrow in the
sand and scavenge on organic debris.
The 4.0 Apex is a banana shaped trolling lure designed for saltwater Salmon trolling applications. The Apex, from Hot Spot Lures, is available in several size options that correspond to the size of bait targeted species are feeding on. The 4.0 Apex, measuring 4" in length, from Hot Spot Lures, is one of the most popular Salmon trolling lures on the market today due to the vibrating and spinning action at any applicable trolling speed. The Apex is a very easy lure to use - it can be trolled alone or with a flasher and still achieves the desired action and ultimately the desired results. The 3.0 Apex comes stock rigged up with 48" of 20lb leader line, 4 bead chain swivel and a 3/0 siwash hook.
Most game fish feed on minnows or small bait fish, as they are attracted by the active darting movements of the bait fish. The dodging and weaving action creates strong vibrations and are immediately attracted to the area. According to the latest research, erratic vibrations like those made by a wounded bait fish are the most enticing. The Apex Lures duplicate the movements of a wounded bait fish. Its contoured-scoop front surface causes a rapid, side-to-side shaking action as it is trolled. The Apex will also dart violently from side to side and will spin from time to time. These actions are highly attractive to fish and no other artificial lure possesses quite the same action as the original Apex trolling lures.
The selection of the correct Apex size is based on the size of the bait fish attacked by your target fish. The Apex size numbers correspond to bait fish inches. For example, trout feeding on small minnows would go after a 1, 1.5 or 3.0 size Apex. Salmon, on the other hand feed on medium anchovies or small herring most accurately represented by the 4.5" size. Lake Trout (Mackinaw) feeding on Kokanee Trout would go after a 6.25" Apex. The Apex maintains its vibrating action at a wide range of speeds; it has a strong shaking and rolling action even at speeds as slow as 1.5 knots. At the other extreme, the Apex can be very successful at speeds as high as four or five knots. Different models are designed to work best within certain speed ranges.
Daiwa and Yamamoto have teamed up to create a soft bait that will quickly become standard equipment for anyone standing on the podium at the end of a tournament.

The Tidewater Twin was inspired by the Silvertron, a double-bladed spinner popularized by Sacramento River salmon anglers. Two blades of slightly different profiles create a unique flash and action. PCT took the design of the original Silvertron, listened to serious anglers about it, and modified it accordingly. They have improved blade spin with brass bearing beads, created fish-attracting color patterns, used machined acrylic beads wherever possible instead of molded styrene, and included hook tubing. The blades are polished to a high luster and are treated with a UV clear-coat.
Overall length: 5 3/4″
Upper blade length: 1 3/4″
Upper blade width: 7/8″

The Shimano Butterfly Flat-Fall Jigs are a totally new concept of Butterfly Jigging technique that offers anglers an entirely new presentation for vertical jigging. Since it's introduction, the Shimano Butterfly Flat Fall Jigs have been a big hit among coastal saltwater fishermen targeting a number of species most prominently rockfish. Fishing the Flat Fall Butterfly Jig is very simple - drop the jig down to the bottom, then crank it up 30 feet followed by free spooling allowing it to descend with it's unique wobbling ability. Anglers can also choose to cast the jig and let it fall while free spooling, wait for the bite, then jerk and repeat. All of the models in Shimano's Butterfly Jig lineup have their own unique use - the Flat Fall Jig separates itself from the others with its horizontal fall and wobble that is significantly different than the side to side swooping action of many other models. The center balanced jig falls with a wobbling action in a horizontal position, keeping the strike zone longer than the Butterfly jig. Comes stock with two Owner dancing stinger hooks rigged up with PowerPro 250lb.
Troubled by being able to see the fish on the fish finder but can't get them to bite? Looking for an exciting new way to catch more fish? The Shimano Butterfly Jigging System could be the answer to your fishing woes. Developed in Japan in the early 1990's to catch Bluefin tuna in depths of up to 500 feet, the Shimano Butterfly Jigging System has been proven to out fish bait in many instances when the fish are finicky and won't bite.
The Butterfly Jigging System utilizes tackle that is extremely manageable and very effective during those heated battles with stubborn gamefish. No longer is it necessary to fish with big bulky tackle that turns your fishing into a job. This system is comprised of an ultra-sensitive, lightweight, durable rod with a high speed, high power reel, super line, and a unique 3-D shaped jig that when combined takes your fishing experience to another level of enjoyment.
The Butterfly Jigging System allows you to feel every movement of the jig during the retrieve. The strike can be felt at any depth due to the lightweight tackle used for jigging. The ultra sensitive Trevala rods let you feel everything from the bottom contour to blistering runs during a fierce battle. This provides the angler with a better sense of the true power of the fish.
The Butterfly Jigging System uses tackle designed to attract and detect bites from even the most finicky of fish. It's an action/reaction system designed to allow you to savor the invigorating feel of every movement while retrieving the lure. The feel of the bite is similar to the feeling of electricity flowing through the rod with every movement of the fish exaggerated, due to the sensitivity of the tackle.
The Butterfly technique requires a precise motion to impart the right fish catching action to the jig. This technique works for both conventional and spinning tackle with the same results.
After the jig is dropped to the desired depth, the rod tip is facing down. With an upward circular motion, the rod tip will be lifted up on the upswing on the reel handle and lowered on the downstroke of the rotation. The reel retrieve is a tight circular motion that is close to the body with the rod butt held loosely under your left armpit. The distance in which the rod tip moves from top to bottom is approximately 10 to 20 inches depending on the desired lure action and retrieval speed. This technique will work on a fast or slow retrieve depending on how the fish are reacting.
The Savage Gear Line Thru 3D Trout is an 10" jointed soft plastic swimbait featuring an extremely realistic appearance and action. The 3D Trout blurs the line between lure and live bait. Based on a 3D scan of a hatchery trout, this bait is reinforced with nylon mesh to offer a one of a kind silent line thru soft plastic jointed swimbait. The top hook line thru design means this bait can be fished around heavy cover and throughout the entire water column. This is perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the bait. For years swimbait anglers have modified their line through swimbaits to decrease the bait's probability of snagging. Retrieving the line through baits along the bottom or over structure was nearly impossible and typically resulted in constant snags. The top-hook line thru placement increases the bait's versatility immensely. In addition a special slot in the baits harness anchors the hook in the harness not the soft plastic body of the bait. The hook will not tear through the soft body material on casts or hook sets.
The 3D Line Thru Trout offers swimbait fishermen the ultimate realism in both appearance and swimming action appealing to a number of different predatory species of fish. Bass anglers will find this bait's swimming motion to precisely mimic not only trout, but several other large forage species big bass feed upon - blueback herring, gizzard shad, tilapia and hitch just to name a few. It's worth noting, there have been other swimbaits on the market that provided similar levels of realism, but were poorly received after anglers found their durability to be an issue. Savage Gear took that fully into consideration when engineering their line thru 3D trout. They utilized a nylon mesh throughout the bait that keeps it from tearing and enables it to withstand vicious strikes from big fish. Toothy critters may leave their mark, but bass and stripers will prove no problem.

VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid in controlling the cast. When turned on, the individual brake weights are forced outward at the beginning of the cast when backlashes most often occur, causing friction that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins to slow, the pressure with which the brake weights contact the raceway lessens, allowing the spool to continue spinning.
