As you can see, I was able to rig several of my favorite small swimbaits perfectly on the Gem Shad Swimbait Head. Pictured here are the Tackle HD Swimmer, Jenko 4-inch Booty Shaker and Scottsboro Tackle 4-inch Swimbait.
When they are chasing bait balls around in the bays this time of year and into the summer and fall, they get real keyed on the shad and small size. I catch really good fish doing it and for some reason they don’t like the bigger swimbaits. It’s like they have it in their head they just want those small baitfish. So a 3 to 4-inch swimbait is perfect.
