The first thing you will notice about the Fathead Jr. is the incredible colors and wide array of sizes you have to choose from. The Fathead, Jr. changed everything when it comes to split bodied, paddle tail swimbaits. And since their introduction in late 2007, we’ve sold tens of thousands of them to fishermen all over the world.
The second thing you will notice is the Fathead, Jr. is engineered to create a tantalizing belly roll when you retrieve it. Other similar lures just come through the water with a tail waggle, but the Fathead, Jr’s entire body shimmies during the retrieve. That action more than doubles the amount of vibration, noise, and realism in the water.
We know not every bass is hungry for a huge meal all of the time. That’s why the Fathead Jr. comes in various sizes to attract predators looking for smaller baitfish.
The Fathead Jr. can be fished in many ways, which lends to their market-leading success and popularity. Use Reaction Strike EWG belly weighted hooks or Flats Lok Jigheads on a medium to heavy casting rod. Pair the Fathead Jr. with a fast or modest retrieve, use it on umbrella rigs, or fish it weightless like a dead minnow.
Reach for the Fathead Jr in early spring, summer, or fall through sparse weeds, open water, near docks, or along walls in freshwater or saltwater bodies.
These baits produce deadly reaction strikes on bass, redfish, walleye, snook, tarpon, and even muskies and pike.
