Savage Gear Line Thru Trout SwimBait | Bass Fishing


Glenn: Hey folks. Glenn May here with BassResource.com.
I’m here at the Savage Gear booth at ICAST 2015 checking out some brand new stuff. And
you got to see what caught my eye here. Now I’ve seen some swimbaits, the 6-inch swimbaits,
they got the 8-inch swimbaits, and there’s even the big 12-inch swimbaits. Well, now
that’s even been outdone. Check this baby out. I have Maas here. Look at this. Look
what he designed. This is a 16-inch swimbait. It’s a beauty. Tell me a little bit about
this. Maas: Well, the idea is that with these big
swimbaits that we’ve seen, the bigger the better more or less. The pull power and the
draw power of these rainbow trout when they’re stocked on the bass lakes is just amazing.
Those really big, lunker fish will strike bass but also largemouth bass. They will just
eat a rainbow trout just like that. So even though this seems quite grotesque, this is
actually a one, fantastic fish-catching lure. Glenn: Now how much does that weigh? Maas: This is about a pound and a half. Glenn: Now can I just throw that with a regular
swimbait rod? Maas: I still have pain in my elbow. Glenn: Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking. Maas: It takes some practice but you can throw
it. Glenn: Really? And you catch some huge lunkers
with that beast. Maas: Huge lunkers with that. Glenn: Okay. How much does this retail for? Maas: This one is 59.95 I believe. It’s very,
very durable bait. As you can see it’s reinforced. I’ve caught musky and pike on this several
times. The thing about this Line Thru Trout is when the fish actually bites, the lure
is actually shot away from the busy end. So the hook just sits in here, and this goes
up the trace. Glenn: This is an actual cable, guys. This
is a cable. Maas: Yeah, this is the pre-rigged version.
So we pre-rigged this for the Musky Boys. So this a 130 pound, 49-strand stainless steel
wire. So it just comes pre-rigged like that. The bass guys, they tend to just break the
mono, all the fluorocarbon straight through, and they can choose the hook of their own
liking. Glenn: Perfect. So when is this going to be
available? Maas: This is available right now actually,
so they can place orders with Savage Gear USA on the 16-incher. Glenn: Fantastic. Okay. Got to check that
one out. That is an amazing looking bait, guys. Just amazing. It’s a mammoth. Now you
have something else that’s really unique. This is a neat thing that I just . . . for
bass fishing. Maas: I always wanted to make a little nymph
out of this TPE material, and it’s been quite difficult because now we’re down in one and
a half and two-inch sizes, and of course the smaller things gets the more complicated to
make the mass production tool. The Mayfly Nymph is a multi-species bait, but we found
that this finesse bait right here for bedding bass and smallmouth in clear water is just
unreal. If you see the fish, you will catch it. Glenn: So how would I rig that bait? Maas: This one comes pre-rigged. I’ve just
cut the hook off here, but we actually put a 4X size 3 single hook on there, so you can
actually hook and hold the bigger fish. You can use this of course for salmon, and trout,
etc., but for bass, it’s just phenomenal. Glenn: I can see this like in the back in
of a drop shot; or split shot rig, maybe in drop shot, something like that? Maas: Yeah, either that or you just free line
it like you would fish a Senko or anything that would free fall in a spot or on a bedding
bass. I’ll show you in the tank and you’ll understand. Glenn: Fantastic. Thank you so much. This
is really, really some cool stuff that you just want to see coming out from most other
manufacturers. This is awesome stuff. Check it out guys.
