I use these https://reactioninnovations.com/estore/products/detail/?prodid=28&optionid=332 rigged with these https://directtacklesales.com/products/vmc-hd-bladed-swimbait-hook

It's a deadly combo and you can run them thru buck brush or cedars.....lots of movement.....tail thumping, body wobble and a blade. This combo on the rivers is sick really.

The Owner Beast bladed heads are good as well as the Trokars but, the VMC is cheaper and I like how their head cuts thru the water better than the Owner and Trokar.....but for my BIG swimbaits it's the beast everytime :) 

Also do yourself a favor and go for the SV spool in a Tatula or a Zillion......I did and they were  the best purchases I have made in awhile

the little dipper in houdini is the shizz nitt, (in my best little nicky voice)

Yep I love the little Dipper as well and is probably a better size swimbait for the river really

anybody tried the Jenko swimbaits? they look beefy. I havent seen the 3.25" in store, but I might have to field test them. I love the keitech lineup, but Jenko has a completely different profile.

I found some 6" creek chubs last week on the river, so I wouldnt be afraid to throw an oversized swimbait. or at least match the length. It was pretty close in size to a cigar, so a walking bait would work too. 

 

Yes I have used Jenko's booty shaker but, have only used the 5, 6, and 7 inch versions. They swim great

Since we're on the topic of swimbaits....what is the difference between a swimbait and a swimjig?  I know what the difference is to humans but what does it matter to the fish if you put it at the right depth and move it at the right speed.  I suspect it is just another way for tackle companies to sell more stuff.  Why have both when one will work?
