Pro Tips
This reaper-style bait is a fantastic alternative to traditional Texas-rig or drop shot style plastics. At 3 ½ inches, it’s a meaty morsel for a hungry bass. When using a plastic like the Baitmate Leech, taking advantage of the flat surface design is imperative. It flutters as it falls, so try using a lighter weight than you normally would. Think in terms of a traditional fall bait, like a Senko or stick bait. This action is really enticing. Even with your drop shot, size down your weight to take advantage of the fall.

Drew’s Notes
“With a bait like this, try thinking outside the box. A spinning rod with light line, like 6 pound test or lighter, can throw this bait weightless. In those really tough conditions or super clear water, this bait will flutter slowly and bass will come up to grab it because of the slow, tantalizing shimmy on the fall.”

  • The bait bomb i recieved in my Aug. box is a new slant on chumming for panfish. Looking forward to use this unique tool. Thanks. All the baits i have recieved over the last couple of season, have been absolutely fabulous. Keep up thr great job on keeping fishermen on the cutting edge of angling.

  • Does anyone else find this bait a little confusing? I am at a loss as to how I should rig it. Standard senkos and drop shot are mentioned, but with an unusual bait like this, I would really like some specific advice on how to rig it.
