Osprey Solid Talon Swimbait
Solid Soft Plastic Swimbait
The Osprey Solid Talon Swimbait is a solid, soft-plastic swimbait that maintains the same profile and action as the original Osprey baits in a smaller size. The Osprey Solid Talon, although relatively new to the market, is already among the most popular swimbait for the umbrella rig technique. Anglers continue to seek out swimbaits that possess both the action and durability to be an effective addition to the umbrella rig; the Solid Talon exhibits both. The subtle tail kick accurately mimics many types of forage fish that big bass feed upon and when matched with the additional swimbaits the setup matches schools of bait fish down to the "T". Genereally, the umbrella rig is designed to mimic schools of shad, however, some regions of the country are home to larger forage fish such as hitch, gizzard shad or blueback herring. Those larger forage fish are more closely represented by the Osprey Solid Talon Swimbaits due to their slightly larger profile and more natural swimming action. The detailed colors offered by Osprey ensure anglers all over the country are able to match the hatch and present the most naturally correct ball of forage fish with the umbrella rig.
When used as a single swimbait the Solid Talon performs equally as well. Anglers fishing lakes with docks, laydowns, or other structure realize the need for a soft plastic swimbait that can be skipped under these structural pieces. The solid make-up of this bait will afford anglers the ability to cast in and around cover where bass live. Anglers that often fish lakes with docks will absolutely love this swimbait. The most ideal setup includes a 1/4-3/8oz swimbait jig head that possesses a 4/0 or 5/0 hook. Thread the swimbait on the hook and apply a small dab of superglue to the back of the jig head. Finally, press and hold the swimbait against the jig head for a few seconds and you will have created a durable option for fishing in, around and under the docks that are known for holding big bass during the summer months.
