Lure Make & Model

Brand:
Use:
Saltwater

MSRP ($):

A segmented body and thin paddle tail allow the PaddlerZ to be fished as twitch-, wake-, or swimbaits, on both fast and slow retrieve speeds. Perfect whether paired with a JigheadZ™ or a weighted swimbait hook, the PaddlerZ are ideal for inshore saltwater applications on either coast due to their subtle tail movement and wobble and scent impregnation. For freshwater anglers, the PaddlerZ are great for topwater applications like buzzing through the grass and are perfect swim jig or umbrella rig trailers.

Z Man Scented PaddlerZ

Z Man is making a name for itself in the inshore fishing game. This review is for the 4" version of the Z Man Scented PaddlerZ. This is a tough bait using Z Man's elastic material. If you fish in areas where there are a lot of "bait snatchers", this is a great bait to throw knowing that it will be a bit tougher to bite pieces off. With it's poured in Pro Cure gel, you will not have to waste your time using scents. This also has a side effect of getting hits when you are just laying your bait around on the bottom, not even working it...so be careful about casting it out and just letting it sit on the bottom when you are opening that drink or eating that sandwich.

I really like the electric chicken, new penny, and Houdini colors for my area, although all the colors I have tried work well in my area. They have caught redfish, trout, and the occasional flounder for me. They can be worked bouncing them along the bottom, slow steady retrieve, and even a faster retrieve. I normally rig mine on a 1/8 ounce lead head and either jig or slowly retrieve them back to the kayak.

When it is time to restock your plastics, do yourself a favor and check out the Z Man line of soft plastic baits.
