Megabass Body Balance Swimbait Heads

Jig it, spin it, buzz it, if it's got a wire or a lead head, it can and will be discussed in here.

Megabass Body Balance Swimbait Heads

Postby Jdmbassman » Sat Dec 19, 2015 6:09 am

Hi all,

I have overlooked Swimbaits to this point but if I am to get out one last time then it will need to be a deeper water so a Swimbait might just be the ticket.

Anyone used Megabass Body Balance Swimbait Heads before ?

If so, how do they perform ?

Any suggestions as to the plastic to pair with one would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers in advance

Matthew

On some good advice, I went with;
Dirty Jigs Swimbait Head and Yamamoto Heart Tail. I hear the jig head shape goes well with the plastic
Dirty Jigs Scott Canterbury Swimbait Head
Big Hammer Jig Head
Picasso Smart Mouth Plus Jig Head.

The Picasso Smart Mouth Plus looks as good as it gets but the Dirty Jigs Scott Canterbury Swimbait Head comes in colors to match the plastic.

All of the above will be used with 5" Big Hammer Tails. I hear these are an unsung hero.

Thanks for the help

I have used them and they are great after all it is megabass. For the money lunker city grip jig heads work well and the lighter weights have a shorter hook to allow the swimbait to have more action. Also the bait keeper works well. Keitech is the go to swimbait anywhere in the country keitech out fishes all other swimbaits the majority of the time.

Agreed. I use the Keitech Swing Impact FAT almost exclusively for Swimjigs so a few of the 4:8" have been added to my TW basket.

They seem to swim real well. The beauty of the design is when I burn the swimbait, the weighted "keel" keeps the bait from rolling on its side.

I will echo the thoughts on the Keitechs, but with that said, the swing impact fats are much better then the regular. Not sure why, but I get more bites on those. There are a bunch of great swim baits now, but for me I have a mental block against using a jig head with an eye along with a plastic with an eye. :roll: I know it doesn't make a bit of difference but it bugs me to have a bait with 4 eyes... Quirky I know.

Reminds me of the 4 eyed fish on the Simpsons that Bart caught.

Don't overlook belly-weighted swim bait hooks as well. They're about all I throw Keitechs on anymore, love love love em. 4/0 for 4.8s and 3/0 for 3.8s. Owner or Gammy twistlocks - been using Gammys the most.
