The Ima Big Stik is a high-tech lunker-killer that walks, pops, spits and catches just about anything that swims. It’s a rear weighted bait making it easier to cast and enabling it to sit in a position that as soon as you start your retrieve, it starts to walk and pitch water a foot and a half to three feet in front of the bait. The ima Big Stik features wire through construction, heavier split rings and quality Owner hooks so it will stand up to any trophy fish. It is deadly for bass, musky, pike, stripers and many saltwater species! It is equipped with Owner ST-66 #1/0 Treble Hooks.

The 7 and 8 inch Bull Shad swimbaits are favorites for trophy hunting with the 8 incher being the overall favorite. When using these size baits you are looking for quality fish and not quantity, these are trophy sized baits designed to catch big Trophy bass especially the bigger 8 inch Big Bull. Both of these baits work extremely well at slow crawl speeds as well as normal retrieves. They have a rate of fall (ROF) of about 5 to 7 feet per 10 seconds and you can wake them with the rod tip up high and a semi normal retrieve. These baits also standup nose down on the bottom in a feeding pose and can be effectively jigged on the bottom. No expenses have been spared when it comes to the components used on the Bull Shad. Each bait is equipped with top of the line components. Such as, strong Black Chrome Owner Hooks, Owner Hyper Wire split rings, top of the line resins, life like 3D eyes and 100% stainless steel 220lb + rated swivels.
