Savage Gear 3D Line Thru Trout V2 - 12"
Maintaining all the same great features of the original, the new Savage Gear Line Thru 3D Trout V2 12" is an updated version of this wildly popular swimbait that
now allows the line to be threaded through either the top or bottom of the bait. Basically, Savage Gear created two swimbaits in one ~ no need to buy a top hook and bottom hook version, this bait can be fished either way. Another modification is placement of the line entry on the moderate sink. Instead of remaining in its current location in the center of the mouth, the new version 2 positions it above the head in order to keep the swimbait planing correctly. In the original version, users experienced the bait traveling upward toward the surface when employing a faster retrieve.
The Savage Gear 3D Line Thru Trout V2 12" is a 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 12" size of the 3D Line Thru Trout V2 offers swimbait fishermen the ultimate realism in both appearance and swimming action appealing to a number of different predatory species of fish. Now available in this 12" size, big bait fishermen can target only the largest predators in their bodies of water. This giant size is a better imitation of the holdover trout, big hitch, gizzard shad and other forage giant bass use their precious energy to consume. Anglers will find this bait's swimming motion to precisely mimic those prey. 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.
