Z-Man Scented PaddlerZ
The Z-Man Scented PaddlerZ are soft plastic baitfish imitation lures featuring scent impregnation that enhance the attraction to both freshwater and saltwater fish. A segmented body and thin paddle tail allow the PaddlerZ to be fished as twitch-, wake-, or swimbaits, on both fast and slow retrieve speeds. Anglers can utilize the PaddlerZ with either a swimbait jig head or weighted belly hook as conditions dictate - open water fishing for the jig head and more grassy areas for the weighted belly hook. The Z-Man PaddlerZ are ideal for inshore saltwater applications on either coast due to their subtle tail movement and wobble and the added bonus of scent impregnation. For freshwater anglers, the PaddlerZ are great for topwater applications like buzzing through the grass and are perfect swim jig or umbrella rig trailers.
The PaddlerZ swimbaits will prove an excellent choice on the back of any Z-Man Chatterbaits as the jointed body works in synergy with the erratic vibrations of the lure. Mix and match color combinations to match the hatch or replicate a popular color pattern at your local body of water. You can also find success reeling the PaddlerZ over the top of grass mats or through fields of reeds like many Florida anglers do with similar swimbaits.

Plastic fishing baits have been around since you first went digging around in your granddad’s tackle box. You probably learned early on that soft plastic baits caught fish, but that you needed to buy a lot of them because they tore up easily when the fish were biting. Z-Man’s proprietary ElaZtech® material is the toughest soft plastic bait you will find on the market today—period. It stands up to the most aggressive fresh- and saltwater game fish, and remains fishable after several catches. ElaZtech is a remarkable material that is soft and pliable, and as much as 10X Tougher than other traditional soft plastic baits. ElaZtech resists nicks, cuts, and tears better than traditional soft plastic baits. No matter the quarry, ElaZtech soft fishing baits can handle it. These plastic fishing baits can withstand getting hammered time after time by aggressive largemouths, toothy barracudas, and anything else you can get to bite.
A plastic fishing bait is no good if fish can’t see it! Unlike other plastic fishing baits, ElaZtech is a naturally buoyant material that floats off the bottom and creates a more visible target. A more visible target means more strikes and more fish-catching opportunities. With traditional plastic fishing baits, this means going through a lot of soft plastics. ElaZtech baits, however, maintain their fishability despite all the abuse, and also boasts one of the highest fish-per-bait ratings in the industry. To top it off, ElaZtech, unlike most other soft fishing baits, is non-toxic and contains no PVC, Plastisol or Phthalates.
Word of ElaZtech is spreading like wildfire as these soft plastic baits gain traction along the tournament trails. Our new line of flipping & punching soft plastic baits puts ElaZtech to the test in the heaviest cover. Whether wood, grass mats, rock piles or dock posts, these plastic fishing baits can stand up to the flip, the bite and the fight. Rig it up and hook up again, and again ... And again. ElaZtech soft fishing baits don’t just stop at our CrawZ, StreakZ or WormZ. Our new Finesse ShadZ offer versatility not found in any other soft fishing bait. Its action on a drop shot is extremely lifelike because of its supreme buoyancy. And, if they stop eating the drop shot, simply rig it on a shaky head for a finesse rig that blows away any other soft fishing bait. It’s the perfect shad imitation in a durable and deadly package.
