When fishing with a small paddle tail swimbait, you typically find yourself having to re-rig pretty regularly. Often times, the weak point for this style of bait lies at the tail end. Bass and other fish are prone to short strike swimbaits and if we prematurely set the hook, the fish bite the tail off. That’s not likely to happen with the MinnowZ though. The ElaZtech material is so durable that the fish would about have to have a pair of scissors to cut through it. This makes the MinnowZ a fantastic bait to use on umbrella rigs, as a single swimbait ridged on a jighead and especially as a trailer, in my personal opinion.
