The Z-Man ZinkerZ are soft plastic stick baits featuring an ultra durable, super dense soft plastic that outlasts the others on the market. Z-Man's claim to fame may be their chatterbaits, but their line of soft plastics continues to impress with baits such as the ZinkerZ which possess great action while remaining immune to wear and tear. The ZinkerZ are much like your typical stick baits - incredibly versatile, absolute fish catching machines that can be rigged in nearly unlimited ways as the situation dictates. It's been said that stickbait style soft plastics are so effective due to their ambiguous appearance that doesn't really look like anything in particular, but are generally intriguing to bass. As many anglers are aware, these soft plastics fall seductively slow and wiggle back and forth as they do so - it seems fish just can't help themselves when pitted face to face against the unusual intruder.
Anglers can choose to fish the Z-Man ZinkerZ with just about rigging method, but most fishermen find a few ways to be more effective for the stickbait type soft plastics. Wacky rigging the ZinkerZ is a truly simply, yet effective way of optimizing the bait's best characteristics. Salt impregnation causes the ZinkerZ to fall at a slow, steady pace with a wiggling action that drives fish nuts. Because of the durable ElaZtech plastic formulation, O-rings aren't entirely necessary when fishing the ZinkerZ - the bait will withstand the hooks pull and remain in tact. Another popular method of fishing the Z-Man Zinkers is a simple weightless Texas Rig that utilizes the baits natural weight to subtly sink down through all types of sparse cover where bass live. Another great attribute of the Z-Man ZinkerZ is their easy castability due to the centralized weight and aerodynamic shape. They possess the perfect amount of weight to be flipped, pitched or cast with excellent accuracy.
The Z-Man ZinkerZ measure 5" in length and are offered in several excellent colors.

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.

Our new line of flipping & punching soft plastic baits puts ElaZtech to the test in the heaviest cover.
