Paddletail Lure Casting Contest [What Size Casts The Farthest?]
In this Paddletail Lure Casting Contest – what size lure will cast the farthest???
I was interested to see if there was any difference in casting distance between a 5-inch, 4-inch, and 3.5-inch paddletail.
All else being equal, will the bigger lures have the farthest casting distance??
Let’s find out!

Lures Used In The Test:
- 5-inch – Slam Shady BOMBER
- 4-inch – Slam Shady Mulligan
- 3.5-inch – Slam Shady 2.0 Paddletail
- Hoss Helix Hooks
To keep things fair I have the same exact rod, reel, and rigging hook to keep everything equal except for the paddletails.
We conducted 5 casts for each lure.
The jump from 3.5 inches to 4 inches was a BIG deal.
There was about a 14-foot distance advantage with the 4-inch paddletail which can be monumental in triggering strikes over smelling the skunk!
It was no surprise the larger 5-inch BOMBER cast the farthest, however, the 4-inch Mulligan was not far behind.
As far as fishing with a small profile that casts far, the Mulligan had proven to consistently fit the bill.
The NEXT test I plan on conducting is going to be between different brands of 4-inch paddletails to test against the Mulligan.
Please comment below a 4-inch paddletail that you want to see tested against the Mulligan!!
It could be a part of my next casting experiment!
