Displaying an ultra-realistic appearance, the Persuader Baby Duck mimics the action and appearance of small baby ducks which big bass often feed upon. After witnessing bass eating blackbirds, angler Scott Green of Northern California developed conceived of the first yellow headed topwater frog color. Despite initial skepticism, that color later become the top selling and perhaps top producing frog all over the country. Similarly, the Persuader Baby Duck looks more like something you'd see in a child's bath than on the end of your line. Due to the predatory nature of bass, anything that presents an easy meal is in danger of being consumed by bass. It has even been opined that should bass grow to 50 lbs, participants in wakeboarding or waterskiing would more or less be buzzbaits.
The Baby Duck is hand carved and hand painted for exceptional realism that mirrors real life ducklings. Three coats of clear enamel are applied to the outside of the lure to increase durability and reduce the signs of hook wear against the bait. Weighing in at 1.8oz, this topwater lure requires hefty gear that would be used for many other similar swimbaits. Great choice for spring and summer bass as well as pike and musky in northern lakes.
Fishing the Persuader Baby Duck is most effective with a deadstick and pop retrieve. Basically, cast out the lure and twitch the rod tip to create ripples across the water's surface. Bass can't help but come investigate the disruption only to find they have stumbled upon a lost baby duck - ultimately, a very easy, very filling meal for them.
