Savage Gear Real Trout Swimbait

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 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 8 version features a 4/0 super-strong treble along the belly. The realistic side to side swimming action produced by the kicking paddle tail offers a true lifelike appearance. The lure will also swim down on the fall. Available in 5 in., 7 in. and 8 in. sizes and three realistic color patterns. The Real Trout is an excellent choice when bass are feeding heavily on bigger forage species including Hitch, Trout and even showing cannibalistic tendencies towards bass. The boot tail design has proven very effective when crawled along the bottom over rocks, ledges and humps. The Savage Gear Real Trout is available in three sizes: 5", 7" and 8" capable of matching many types of forage across the country. We offer the Real Trout in four color patterns: Bass, Dark Trout, Hitch, Light Hitch and Light Trout.

Gear Considerations

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. Because there are three sizes of the Savage Gear Real Trout the setup may vary a bit. We believe the 5" bait can be effectively utilized with rather light swimbait gear and anglers may be able to get away with a "non-swimbait" setup of a heavy casting rod rated to about 2 ounces paired with a high capacity low-profile casting reel spooled up with 15lb fluorocarbon. The 7" and 8" models on the other hand are decidedly heavier and therefore require more specific tackle considerations. We recommend using a dedicated swimbait rod for each due to their weight and single jig hook configuration. It's of the utmost importance to impart a solid hookset and therefore anglers should use these larger baits with swimbait rods with appropriate lure weight ratings. A rod up to 4oz should be sufficient and will offer the optimal presentation of the lifelike swimmer. Pair that rod with a high line capacity round reel or a low profile alternative such as the Daiwa Lexa 300. Line size should be 25-30lb fluorocarbon or monofilament.

Good Bait August 30, 2014
Reviewer: Derrick from Trabuco Canyon, CA United States  
Overall impressed with how inexpensive these baits are. The hook is subject to come out after a few fish, but these do get quality bites.
