ICAST 2017 Award Winner for “Best Hard Lure”!! Based on a 3D scan of an actual bat, the Savage Gear 3D Bat delivers an oversized profile and a unique crawling action that elicits brutal topwater strikes. Built with large articulating metal wings, the Savage Gear 3D Bat creates a super-frantic waddling action that draws-in big fish from a distance. Taking attraction a step further, the Savage Gear 3D Bat also features a high-pitch, built-in rattle that generates a unique acoustic agitation.
Believe it or not, bats are a forage that bass eat on a regular basis. Bats fall out of trees and into the water at night and thrash around, creating the commotion that will attract any predatory fish species. Work this bait around the shoreline, under trees, around bushes and along weed lines. Keep your rod tip high and a consistent retrieve. Pause the bait when you get near cover and let the bait sit in the strike zone longer to entice more strikes.
“Whether you’re fishing this 3D Bat, a buzzbait, a rat, a buzz frog or any other moving topwater bait that presents a lot of commotion, be ready for vicious strikes. Make sure you have a good, stout rod that is also short enough to give you precision casting.”
