Swimbait help Request

Post by goldrod » Mon Feb 18, 2019 7:20 pm

I have the Jackall Giron Swimbait
Its 3/4 oz at 4" and It sinks tooo fast for me so i am looking for something along those lines with the realistic look and it would be a bonus if it was tri-hindged

Speaking of Dark Sleepers,

Academy Sports H20 Express Swim bait is a Winner
Has the mark on the nose like most Japanese swimbaits to aid in location
I added a feather treble to the rear and its a great lure. Sinks fast and that's not what I was looking for but
compared the the Jackall Giron its BETTER in every aspect. I did also take my lure markers and added some chartreuse etc but
of all the lures talked about here I just wanted to speak on this little gem. Cause it SWIMS away from the more highly priced lures.

Im just looking for bedding fish and swimming it
