This week’s Tackle Tuesday feature is the new Strike King Rage Swimmer. They come in two sizes, a 3.75 and 4.75 inch, and I prefer to use a 3/4 ounce Strike King Squadron jighead to fish it.
I like to throw the Rage Swimmer on those finicky offshore fish, especially the ones that are grouped up on Shad. Make a long cast past the school and allow the bait to sink all the way to the bottom. Reel slowly about 10-15 times, let the bait fall back to the bottom and repeat. The only modification I make to the bait is to trim about 1/4 inch off the head to create a flat surface. Add a dab of glue and you’re ready to go.
My recommended set-up is a 7-6 Power Tackle Keith Combs Signature Series Big Worm rod, a Shimano Chronarch, and 20lb Seaguar Invizx.
