ZOOM Bait Company announced the release of the new Z-3 Swamp Crawler, a hand-poured, triple-laminate straight-tailed worm that will be deadly on heavily pressured bass from coast to coast. It combines the best attributes of hand-poured worms with affordability and Zoom’s legendary quality control.

The 6-inch Swamp Crawler has long been one of Zoom’s most popular products, a shimmering, slithering worm, that can be used for a wide variety of purposes, from Texas rigging to Carolina rigging, affixed to a shaky head or on the back of a wobble head jig. It’s also one of the best lures ever offered for dropshotting, as its seductive wiggle moves naturally with even the slightest push of current. The new version will be just as tantalizing as the original, but the build process will be more like that of traditional “garage pours.” This is a labor-intensive, multi-step effort that produces a softer body and a wider array of colors, but which up until now has been difficult to replicate in a mass production setting.

The Z-3 Swamp Crawler will initially be available in two existing colors – Sexy Shad and Morning Dawn – and eight new patterns, anything you need to match your local forage and water color. They include:

• Bold Bluegill
• Desert Craw
• M.M. III
• Oxblood Light Red
• Prizm Shad
• Pro Blue Neon
• Z-3 Edge
• Z-3 Magic
