Fathead Jr.




The Fathead, Jr. comes in 3″, 3.5″, 4″, 5″, 6″ and 8″ lengths. The first thing you will notice about these lures is the incredible colors and wide array of sizes we offer. The Fathead, Jr. changed everything when it comes to split bodied, paddletail swimbaits. And since their introduction in late 2007, we sold enough of them to sink the Titanic.

The Fathead, Jr’s were engineered to create a tantalizing belly roll when retrieved. Other similar lures just come through the water with a tail waggle, but the first thing you will notice with Fathead, Jr’s is that the entire body shimmies during retrieve. The second thing you will notice is that monster bass eating the bait like it has been fasting for a month.

These baits can be fished in so many ways, which is part of the reason for their success. Use Reaction Strike EWG belly weighted hooks, or any of the myriad of internal weighted hooks. They can be used on jigs, or wacky rigged, or even fished weightless, like a dead minnow.

Check out the colors. 12 freshwater and 12 saltwater colors covers every conceivable fishing situation. These baits are deadly on bass, redfish, walleye, snook, tarpon, and even muskies and pike. Tie one on and you won’t be sorry.
