Looking for a new paddletail lure for redfish, trout, snook, or even bass?

Then you’re going to love this video.
I’ve been using these lures recently and have been catching a lot of fish on them, so I decided to put together this review for you.
In this video, you’ll learn:
- how to rig them (both the Skinny Dipper and the Little Dipper)
- when and where to use them
- and much more
Check it out below.
Reaction Innovations Paddletails Review [VIDEO]
Reaction Innovations Skinny Dipper
The Skinny Dipper is about 4-5″ long, which is a little on the bigger side when it comes to soft plastics for inshore fishing.
I like to rig it on a 4/0 wide-gap hook because this size hook gets a little farther back in the bait, which helps increase my hookup ratio.
I prefer an unweighted worm hook when I’m targeting trout or bass in the grass and I’m just buzzing it across the surface.
But if I’m fishing water up to three feet or four feet deep and want to get to the bottom (like when I’m targeting redfish), then I prefer a weighted swimbait hook, such as the Owner TwistLock hook (4/0, 1/8 oz).
Check out the video above to see how to I rig them.
As far as time of year, this lure is best in late summer and fall because that’s when baitfish are at their biggest.
You can get the Skinny Dipper from our shop here.
Reaction Innovations Little Dipper
The Little Dipper is a little smaller that the Skinny Dipper at 3.5″ long.
And since it’s shorter, I like to rig it on a smaller hook.
I like to use a 3/0 wide-gap hook and I’ll choose weighted or unweighted based on the same scenarios as I described above for the Skinny Dipper.
This size lure can be great year-round, as I would prefer to use a smaller bait than a larger one in most cases.
If you’re looking for a new paddletail to try out, I’ve really enjoyed Reaction Innovations’ Skinny Dipper and Little Dipper.
