One of Castaic’s classic and most popular baits. It’s easy to see why. This bait is easy to fish, durable, and affordable.
The Catch22 is a soft swimbait with a flexible InnerArmor fiber skeleton. This skeleton provides structural strength and support and reinforces vital joint sections. The Catch22 lasts longer and supports more violent hookups that competing baits.
The Catch22 is ultra-soft, looks like a fish, and swims like a fish regardless of how it’s retrieved. Reel it in seductively slow or burn it back fast. A seductive side-to-side action entices fish across the water with a lively S-pattern.
The Catch22’s “No-throw” sliding hook system lets the bait slide up the line when fish are hooked. This gives you better hooksets and fewer lost fish. A cleverly placed magnet on the belly keeps the hook in place while casting and retrieving.
A perfect bait for everyone, the Catch22 excels with first-time and new anglers. It’s easy to dabble with and appeals to professional, experienced trophy fish hunters.
Bluegill, Tilapia, and Sunfish are 5” long. Perch is 6” long. The trout is available in 4”, 6”, 8” and 10” sizes. All other styles available in 4” and 6” sizes.

How to Fish Your Catch22 Swimbait
Make a gentle, sweeping sidearm cast. Allow the bait to settle momentarily, or to sink to the desired depth. Begin a steady retrieve, then switch speeds until the lure achieves your preferred motion.
On a straight retrieve, the Catch 22 swims with a smooth, seductive motion, of a slightly injured prey fish. Twitching and popping the bait makes it dart, turn, and glide. Dead sticked, the 22 hovers in place or slowly sinks, depending on the lure’s rate-of-fall (Floating or Slow Sinking). Burned and bulged, the 22 can elicit explosive surface strikes. Each of these retrieves, employed in the proper situation, will compel huge bass and other fish to eat the lure like it’s live bait.
Catch 22 employs Castaic’s trademark “exact species replication” — shape, color and swimming motion all true to aquatic life. Remember, if it looks like a fish and swims like a fish, it must be a Castaic.
