The Basstrix Paddle Tail Tube Swimbait is the original paddle tail swimbait. Several lure manufactures have tried but failed to perfectly replicate the Basstrix Paddle Tail Tube. The realistic finish, life like holographic eyes and natural swimming undulation is the reason why the Basstrix Paddle Tail Tube is the most sought after soft plastic swimbait!

Try Gamakatsu Weighted Superline Spring Lock Hook, Owner Weighted Beast Twistlock or use the Lunker City Belly Weight on your favorite EWG Hook. Any of these will work great with the Basstrix Baits.

Comments: IF you are having problems with the action of these baits you can always drop them in boiling water for a little bit to soften them up. That usually makes the action better on most swimbaits. If the eyes fall off you can always just glue them back on. If that boiling them won't help, and they are rigged correctly, then you may have gotten a bad batch. If you continue to have problems with these the Keitech Fat swimbaits always swim true (without boiling) and have a really good action to them. They don't look quite as good as these because they don't have the eyes or the neat designs but I don't think that would matter much unless you are fishing ultra-clear water.

Comments: Disappointed in the latest 5 inch batch I purchased.  The baits seemed larger than normal and did not have the normal action.  The lure rolled through the water instead of the swim action needed to get bites.

From: Mike: Purcellville, Virginia, USA

Comments: Having trouble with 6" paddle tails. Most of them the tail section is too thick and has very little action. When I first bought these that was not the case. I have been using the j-will swimbait head and the blade runner weighted insert hook. They are rigged straight and centered properly. Customer service from basstrix is hard to come by. Dont waste anymore of your money. I have started using other brands. Now I am stuck with several baits that dont work.

Comments:  Bama rigs with these ,lol.  why not just troll around with a giant net.  I use these occasionally ' one at a time ' on a weighted hook.  Fun to fish these.  They have nice action.  I guess if desperate we could cast about 20 or 30 on wires and run some electroshock to boot  ROFL.

From: Nicholas: San Jose, CA

Comments: The 4 inch in blue back herring on the back of a dirty jigs finesse swim jig in light hitch color is THE BEST swim jig combination u can buy and you will catch tons of bass includeing the biggins

From: Trevor

Comments: Great swim bait! Got alot of large mouth on these baits. Colors are very nice, and the action too! Throw them on a scrounger jig head and reel slow on the bottom. Very soft though, after a couple of fish the swimbaits done. Got myself some mend-it to fix the rips. Other than that it's the best swimbait out.

From: Glasspar: Castro Valley, CA

Comments: The big smallmouth were slamming the the six inch basstrix in yellow perch on a recent trip to Lake Vermilion.  Needed a stinger treble though.

From: Big J: Houston, TX

Comments:Better looking and softer than other paddle tail swimbaits, you get a harder thumping kick with these than others. Basstrix is the original tube swimbait, and still better than any of the imitations. Try skinning the clear plastic coating off the tail to make it kick even more wildly. Also try rigging sideways to give the impression of a wounding fish slapping on its side. I would love to see Basstrix add a line of wounding baitfish colors, with bleeding gills. Guarantee it would be a killer.
