The Savage Gear Real Trout is a soft plastic boot tail swimbait designed to mimic the action and appearance of bait fish upon which bass feed. The 11" version of the Real Trout is an absolutely magnum swimbait intended for trophy bass anglers who are trying to mimic the largest forage species in that body of water. Save Gear's Real Trout represents the ultimate in realism realized by use of revolutionary 3D scanning of a real hatchery trout. The Real Trout features and internal jig head with an ultra-sharp, super-strong hook, along with a frog-style hook along the belly. The 11" Savage Gear Real Trout is a true magnum swimbait - similar to the Baitsmith Magnum in size and profile weighing in at nearly 10oz. We offer the 11" Real Trout in two colors: Dark Trout and Light Trout.
We also offer three standard sizes of the Savage Gear Real Trout.
Use of the correct tackle is perhaps the most commonly offered piece of advice from the experts when asked how to improve one's swimbait approach. We couldn't agree more. As is the case with any technique, using the right gear is of the utmost importance when swimbait fishing. Employing the wrong tackle will inhibit the swimbait from realizing its full potential. Additionally, incorrect tackle results in fatigue, lost fish and overall frustration. The 11" Real Trout weighs approximately 10oz and therefore must be paired with an appropriate magnum heavy swimbait rod.
Dobyns Rods is one of the most popular companies offering two rods, 867 mag sb and 908 ultra mag sb, which are more than capable of handling this swimbait.
