Paddle tail recomendstions

Post by Alan_dalton »

Any suggestions for big paddle tails to add to lures for different actions.

I'm not sure exactly what you're looking to do, but these might be what you're looking for?

Not at those prices. £3.50 from Sportfish when I last got some for my collection of Guppies. You only get one paddle in a pack. The curly do however make good spinnerbait trailers.

get some of the savage whitefish shads or Westing Shadteez, no need for tons of different paddles, so long as it kicks well, and rolls/rocks its good to go

Yeah, no need to have a mountain of paddle tail softbaits, but different brands differ in action, which can make or break a session. Pig Shad, Gator Gum, Wolfcreek Shad, Scout Shad, Scout Bream, Eastfield Wingman, the new Whitefish Shad and a real favourite of mine, the Jiggar Jig. These are the lures I use and they all have those subtle differences that suit different situations, ranging from subtle tail actions and gentle body roll, to more vigorous tail and body roll. We've moved on a lot from those old Replicunts :laughs: On the bank I can only take a few, so tend to have good think what to take based on when and where I am fishing, in the boat I can take a much wider selection of course. I also find certain paddle tail baits work better in colder water, the ones you can fish slower with the more subtle actions.
