These finesse, cold-water soft-baits were developed for river/lake winter smallmouth bass. Smallmouth bass prefer smaller soft-baits that have subtle action as fall water temperatures decline from the low 50’s in to the 40’s. Both jigs feature tails that float up off of the bottom @ rest and move w/ the slightest current and/or twitch imparted from the angler. These two soft-baits have produced excellent results for cold water anglers in the Tri-State Area. Braided line w/ a fluorocarbon leader is recommended on light/medium spinning tackle for best results. Work these baits slowly with a twitch-twitch then short drag- pause routine. Any feeling of weight should be followed by loading your rod w/ a slight tension to feel the “mush-mouthed”, wet leaf feeling indicating that a bass is holding on.
