A select few anglers have been stealthily taking out tournaments with limits of large Smallmouth Bass, using an innovative bottom swivel specifically designed to deliver extremely fine baits. The secret’s out with Sneaky Underspin, now available from Great Lakes Finesse, a brand that focuses exclusively on great performances for precision smallmouth bass with absolute attention to every detail. Designed to be fished slow, with light line, long rod and ultra-fine plastic materials, the Sneaky Underspin has a fine-wire Gamakatsu hook and a weed-resistant head design that allows it to pass through sparse vegetation. Important details include vivid 3D eyes, stainless steel components, and a chip-resistant powder coat finish. Fits perfectly with a 2.75″ Drop Minnow swimbait or you can move up to a 2.5″ to 3″ swimbait.
price: $6.99 air.
Sizes: 3/16 oz., 5/16 oz
Pro mini tube head
Finally, a great size tube head with a short hook that can handle the biggest fish in the lake. This unique head design is specifically designed to fit small microtubes (1.75″ to 2.75″) perfectly, and will keep the tube and hook positioned higher to reduce snags and improve hooks as well as giving the tube a wider head profile similar to a goby. The landing ratio is greatly improved due to the short distance between the tube head and the bend of the hook, resulting in less “shake”. Built on a short, ultra-sharp Mustad UltraPoint 1/0 hook, the Mini Pro tube head is the best tube head you’ve been looking for.
price: US$6.99 (4-pack)
Sizes: 1/8 oz, 3/16 oz, 1/4 oz, 3/8 oz, 1/2 oz
Ghost ball jig head
Finally, a compact ball head with a hook that can handle the biggest fish in the lake. Designed to fit Great Lakes Finesse soft plastics perfectly, you can also pair them with any of your favorite baits. Features an ultra-sharp Gamakatsu 604 hook, matte powder coat and baked finish (no chip), oversized bait keeper, and clean eye. This is truly the highest quality ball head ever made.
price: US$6.99 (3-pack)
Available in two hook sizes: 1, 1/0, and 3 weight sizes: 3/16 oz, 1/8 oz, and 1/16 oz.
Rapid fire clip
Attach your drop weight to these little clips instead of a direct knot to allow quick changes between weights, styles or colors of your drop weight. When you’re done for the day, just unscrew your weight, put it back in your terminal box and attach the clip to the hook holder on your rod – no more rod box disasters! It also works great as a quick connector for ice fishing and pan fishing applications.
price: US$3.99 (15 Pack)
2.75 inch fish drop
Created in partnership with Travis Manson (Smallmouth Crush), Drop Minnow is in a league of its own. It’s extremely versatile – allowing you to drop it, equip it with a dameki, jump with it, swim with it, or fish with it like Ned. The matte, shine-free ribbed body provides a unique vibration in the water and the thin tail gives it incredible lifelike action. It is truly neutrally buoyant, which means that when the bait sticks dead it will sit completely horizontal giving it a natural appearance. The slightest bit of movement in the bait will make the tail twitch like crazy.
price: US$6.99 (8-pack)
2.1 inch Snack Crew
It has been scientifically proven that the most effective crawl baits are basic baits, with few appendages and limited action. The Great Lakes Finesse Snack Craw was designed with that in mind, and with one goal in mind – to catch fish. It has the perfect amount of float to make the claws lift at a 45 degree angle and a shine-free matte finish, making it a premium quality crawl bait. Originally intended as a piece on a finesse jig, we have found this bait to be very effective on a Stealth Ball Jig Head that is jigged or dragged along the bottom.
price: $6.99 (6-pack)
2.2 inch flat cat
Best tasting premium drops. The thin tail provides maximum action from a dead stick style presentation, and the body shape mimics a small catfish, small goby or minnow in the water or on the bottom. This bait is best fished as a drop or paired with a Stealth Ball head and slowly dragged along the bottom. This lure features true neutral buoyancy, so it lies completely flat in the water column and a shine-free matte finish, so it looks incredibly natural.
price: US$6.99 (8-pack)
4″ drop worm
Most drop worms on the market perform poorly. They look great in the package but put them in water and they fall head first to the bottom or stand upright. Featuring true neutral buoyancy, the 4-inch drop worm stands perfectly horizontal on your hook, producing an incredibly lifelike action with no extra work from the angler. Add a shine-free matte finish and it’s a super-premium drop worm.
