Savage Gear 3D Line Thru Gizzard Shad 10"
The Savage Gear Line Thru 3D Gizzard Shad is an 10" jointed soft plastic swimbait featuring an extremely realistic appearance and action. The 3D Gizzard Shad blurs the line between lure and live bait. Based on a 3D scan of a hatchery Gizzard Shad, 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 Gizzard Shad 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 Gizzard Shad. 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.
