Zoom Brush Hog
Soft Plastic Creature Bait
The Zoom Brush Hog is a soft plastic creature style bait that has proven successful for anglers across the country. Zoom was one of the first companies to release a creature style bait and to this day the Brush Hog is still a favorite of anglers from California to Maine largely due to its versatility. The 6" Brush Hog is best described as a mutant hybrid of several different soft plastics with no real naturally existing match out there. Instead, the bait's ambiguous appearance sort of mimics everything without really mirroring anything - kind of like a Senko. Some things you just don't question. The brush hog style baits are really great and versatile. There's really no wrong way to fish them. Anglers have found success employing them for a number of bass fishing applications with several different rigging methods. One of the most popular for the standard size Brush Hog is a simple Texas-Rig. The Texas rig is actually quite a broad rigging method as the determining factor for how the bait behave is usually the weight used with it. When making casts in open water or light cover, the most commonly used weight is a 1/4oz tungsten worm sinker. This weight allows the bait to fall slowly, without inhibiting its action yet still gets it to the bottom so it can be fished properly. Pitch the bait around light cover such as trees, rocks, grass and docks and watch as bass annihilate it. Heavier sinkers can be utilized when fishing the Brush Hog in thicker cover - commonly for flipping and pitching around grass where weights up to 1oz may be necessary.
While Texas-Rigging the Zoom Brush Hog is very effective, there are many other uses which have proven to be fish catchers. Carolina Rigging, weightless or just like a big jig trailer - the Zoom Brush Hog is a must have. This is one of the most versatile and widely used baits on the planet for catching all sizes of bass. Go big with the Brush Hog and land hogs, for those finesse fishing situations for smaller bass - tie on a Tiny Brush Hog or Baby Brush hog.
The Zoom Brush Hog is 6" long and comes 8 per pack.
