Here Is One Trick To Get More Bites On Big Paddletails This Summer
How do you match the hatch when your lures are not the exact size profile of the baitfish available?
There are little ways to modify your lures so that you can effectively mimic baitfish in the water at any given time.
So in this video, you’ll learn the simple trick for making your larger soft plastic lures match the hatch to get more bites.

Simple Hack for Bigger Paddletails [VIDEO]
In the springtime when bait hatches it’s really small and the Slam Shady 2.0 represents that bait profile perfectly.
Then as we go into the summer months there are 4″ lure variants available that better match baitfish as they are growing.
And summer also brings lots of rain and dirty water to go with it.
So in these scenarios, the Slam Shady Bomber really excels!
When fishing in dirty or stained water, sometimes you need the extra vibration of a bigger paddletail to get the attention of predator fish.
But that bigger paddletail may be too big to effectively match the hatch.
How To Modify Your Large Paddletails For More Strikes
Here’s the best way to modify the Slam Shady Bomber:
Step 1: Take a knife and chop down the head of the bait to reduce the size of the paddletail (try matching the size of the Slam Shady 2.0).
Step 2: Find a jighead that matches well with the blunt head of the paddletail so you have the least resistance.
I’ve found the custom ball jig heads designed for the Power Prawn work tremendously.
It has a longer shank and allows the lure to move naturally through the water.
But the downside is that there’s no barb to grab the plastic.
So, you can use a small drop of super glue to keep the Bomber secured on the jighead.
If you want to get more bites in dirty water scenarios when baitfish are at different and transforming sizes, then you may need to modify your lures.
Reducing the size profile of your larger paddletails can help you catch more fish when you need that extra vibration but a smaller silhouette.
