Small Glidebait

Postby breamtim » Mon Oct 09, 2017 4:17 pm

Hi guys

Looking for a small glidebait, around 5" or less, to use on large river brown trout. Wanting something with a skinny profile. Probably going to get myself some Evergreen ES Drives, but wondering if anyone has any other suggestions? Colour, brand and price aren't an issue.

Thanks, Tim

These are killer :big grin:
Not sure one would classify it as a glide bait, but close enough.
Biovex Joint Bait 110 / 142

Love how they swim in an S pattern on a slow retrieve. Hard to find in a small swimbait.

The Slide Swimmer 145 is a great bait, but nearly impossible to find. It's one of the baits I've been swimming to find.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

The small River2Sea S Waver works, and it's worth the $17.
I stuck a 7 lb largemouth on one this last summer.
