The Bait

SA Bass - - >> Sa Bass Spy -

Though it’s ac­tu­ally a jerk­bait, the Bomber Long A (shown above) will swag­ger across the sur­face in a tight wob­bling pat­tern when fished prop­erly. It’s prob­a­bly the most pop­u­lar stick bait-style wake bait of all time. - The 15A model of the Long A is most pop­u­lar. It’s a 4 1/2inch stick bait with a short div­ing lip and three tre­ble hooks. - Most pros pre­fer early vin­tage mod­els, which are iden­ti­fi­able by a screw-in rear hook hanger, though more re­cently man­u­fac­tured Long As will also work. - Nat­u­ral bait­fish color pat­terns work well, as do bone, white or sim­i­lar fin­ishes. Usu­ally, your fa­vorite walk­ing top­wa­ter pat­tern also ap­plies to a wake bait. - Kreiger says you should re­move the split ring from the nose and con­nect with a loop knot for the best ac­tion.
