The Savage Gear Glide Swimmer is a two-piece jointed swimbait possessing the glide style action that has become incredibly popular in recent years. The Glide Swimmer was engineered to display a very subtle, methodical swimming action that "glides" side to side through the water offering big fish an easy meal. Glide baits have taken the swimbait market by storm, proving incredibly effective for a number of predatory species including bass, mackinaw trout and musky among others. It's difficult to determine just what it is about these baits, but the generally accepted belief is that it's simply an easy meal for big fish. Perhaps the subtly of the lure is also partly responsible - but whatever the reason, it sure seems to put fish in the boat.
Savage Gear's Glide Swimmer was under development for several years, as it was tuned and adjusted to have the most natural gliding action of any bait in this category. The super slow sinking rate of fall and continued gliding action on the pause makes this the perfect bait for big bites on a twitch and pause retrieves. We recommend one of two retrieves:
- Slow-Steady w/ Twitch: Retrieve the lure with a constant, slow pace allowing the lure to glide back and forth in order to gain the attention of nearby fish. Every once in a while add in a quick twitch of the rod's tip at the end of the handle turn and let pause for a moment before continuing. This will cause any followers to quickly decide if they wish to attack or not.
- Twitch, Twitch, Twitch: Retrieve the Glide Swimmer using twitches and turns of the reel's handle like you would a topwater walk the dog style bait. This can prove very effective for bass, stripers and musky that are often intrigued by a wounded or confused forage. Our in house big bait expert prefers this retrieve.
We offer the Savage Gear Gide Swimmer in three sizes: 5 1/4", 6 1/2" & 8" in many excellent colors.
