UV Hot Tail Swimbait - 4" (4 PACK)

- A Proven Swimbait in a Bite Sized Package -

One of the most popular lures for any fish, the Pitbull Tackle UV Hot Tail Swimbaits were designed to revolutionize swimbait fishing. We looked at what worked with our larger swimbaits and reshaped the body to offer a perfect sized swimbait for smaller applications. Designed to match perfectly with 3/8oz up to 1oz jigheads, these swimbaits are a must for Striped Bass, Coastal Rockfish, and Inshore Halibut. We have hand-selected colors to make sure that these 4" swimbaits are ready for action no matter where you are fishing. Every Hot Tail comes standard with a molded hollow hook guide through the center body of the bait which allows for straight and simple rigging every time; say goodbye to kinked and uneven swimbaits. Another feature which Pitbull Tackle designers included was the choice of plastic. Too often do hungry predators take a toll on soft plastic lures. There is nothing more frustrating than going through swimbait after swimbait as they tear or rip apart while fishing. The designers for the Hot Tails had this in mind as they created these baits from an ultra-durable plastic to ensure longevity in each bait. This unique plastic still allows for plenty of flexibility, and is complimented by a narrow section just before the over-sized tail which provides maximum kicking action through the water. When all of these factors are considered, it is easy to see why the Pitbull Tackle UV Hot Tail Swimbaits are a must-have in any anglers tackle box.

How To Fish:

Begin by threading the hook point through the hollow channel entrance hole in the front of the bait
The hook point will slide through the channel until it reaches the back of the channel. At this point, slide the hook point through the top of the swimbait body
With light pressure, continue to thread the swimbait onto the jighead by pushing the front of the swimbait to the flat surface on the backside of the jighead
The swimbait should sit flush on the jighead. This process can be repeated with all Pitbull Tackle Swimbaits
