Designed to fish shallow inshore structure where big, mean
big fish call home. The long skinny design of the 9" Sledge
Hammer imitates the large bait fish such as smelt and mackerel that are
frequently found in these "skinny water" areas. Basically just an
elongated version of Big Hammer's 5 1/2" Hammer, the new Sledge Hammer has
proven to be much more versatile than originally planned. It swims very well on
the sink or drop making it a good deeper water bait as well. In addition to
that it can be rigged weedless (click on thumbnail to the right) with a wide
gap hook and with the tail intact or as a slug with the tail removed.
Jig Heads: The Sledge Hammer works best with a 1 oz. jig
head with a 8/0 hook. But, will work with various sizes and as mentioned above
can be rigged weedless on a large wide gap worm hook.
