FAQS

What is a "swimbait"?

A swimbait is a specialized fishing lure designed to mimic the appearance and swimming behavior of natural prey fish. It typically consists of a body made from either soft or hard materials, often shaped and painted to resemble various types of baitfish. Swimbait lures come in different sizes, colors, and designs to imitate specific species and can feature lifelike details such as fins, scales, and eyes. When retrieved through the water, swimbaits produce a realistic swimming motion that can attract predatory fish, making them popular among anglers targeting bass, pike, muskie, trout, and other game fish.

What is the most popular swimbait "brand"?

While it goes without saying, everyone has their own preferred swimbait brand. A lot of these baits are hand-made and tailored to specific geographic regions of the country. Ultimately, the best swimbait brand is the one that catches you fish!

Here are some notable brands:

Bull Shad

SPRO

Deps

Illude

DRT

Savage Gear
