Pepper Custom Baits Fred's Commando Roumbler
Used by Fred Roumbanis at the 2014 Bassmaster Classic, the Pepper Custom Baits Fred's Commando Roumbler is the very lure that coaxed his 9lb 3oz brute into the livewell. Not your typical bladed swim jig, the Pepper Custom Baits Fred's Commando Roumbler delivers tournament-grade performance and a versatile presentation that outshines all the rest.
Fitted with a coffin-style blade at the front, the Pepper Custom Baits Fred's Commando Roumbler provides an advanced level of flash, vibration, and weedlessness. Built with two joints (one behind the blade and another at the hook), the Pepper Custom Baits Fred's Commando Roumbler has a very unique wobble that bass won't be ready for. Also, because of its pivotal nature bass can't use the jig as leverage to spit the hook.
Designed with a durable hook hanger versus a molded hook, the Pepper Custom Baits Fred's Commando Roumbler gives anglers the freedom to modify their presentation without ever having to re-tie. Whether conditions call for a tasty paddle tail swimbait, like the one included with the jig, or a compact feathered treble hook, anglers can swap back-and-fourth with the simple twist of a split ring. Proven to not just catch, but also catch big ones, the Pepper Custom Baits Fred's Commando Roumbler is the one you want on your line when the tournament is on the line.

Comments: This bait is flat out wicked. What it doesn't show in the pic is it comes with a Gamakatsu dressed treble and a Trokar swimbait hook with a swim bait. When you fish it you will feel it vibrate like crazy and the action is superb. It has done wonderfully for trout (yes I said trout), bass and pike for me.

Comments: I like the fact that this comes with a treble hook that you can switch to in open water. It also gives the jig a smaller profile, as the single hook and trailer can be a bit large for many of the waters that I usually fish. You can also substitute a smaller single hook and smaller trailer. But the treble has worked best for me. Fishing at East Okoboji in Iowa, I caught my largest bass of the year swimming a Pepper Bladed Jig in Bluegill color just over the weed tops. Made a cast off the dock, and hooked something that got off. I cast in the same direction, set the hook hard, and didn't let off until I had her in hand. It was a 20" largemouth. I landed 8 more bass from that spot, including several on consecutive casts including a few that were 16-17", but none were quite as nice as the first.
