Designed for ultra-slow presentations in shallow water or near the surface, the Slow Tail Swimbait features Hogy's trusted trophy-grade rigging ready to target tackle-busting tarpon, tuna, snook, striped bass, cobia, and more.

Featuring twin action-packed ribbon tails for a lifelike swimming action at very slow speeds, these baits are ideal for targeting lethargic, pressured, or generally finicky gamefish by offering a slower, more natural presentation. Ideally fished with slow
steady swimming action, or a slightly stop-and-go retrieve, these baits effectively imitate unassuming mullet, herring, menhaden, shad, and more.

    Slowtail for shore night time stripers in a bay

    As has been mentioned by others the slowtail is a good early season striper bait in shallow, slightly discolored water. This spring I pulled it out of the bag to try at night. Since slow retrieve is commonly used for night striper fishing seemed like a good fit. Enjoyed a fun 2h hours of constant action on the outgoing tide. Fish hits were strong and hook up ratio was good compared to other swim shads I have used. Other nearby fisherman were throwing metal-lipped surface swimmers which is the go to lure when bunker are around. This spring there has been a lack of bunker. The smaller profile of the slow tail may have matched the smaller bait like spearing. I was pleasantly surprised how well the lure held up after many hits and fish. Lost only one eye on the lure. For 1.25 oz weight the lure threw well on my moderate action surf rod. I used the chartreuse and white color version. If it’s not chartreuse, it’s no use; doesn’t hold since it seems not to be available anymore.

    Almost foolproof!

    And I might be THE authority on that !

    Drifts with gossamer lines and the slow tail are our early season warm up for anything and everything that swims ….

    A generation ago stout rods and chum pots , spreader rigs and black sided winches were the spring thing to do .

    Today we search for skinny waters on a late afternoon. A light tackle spinning rod with fine braid and HOGY SLOWTAIL keeps us hopping and dropping fish in the box

    It’s dynamic and interactive and it’s what fishing is when fishing is fun!

    Less deep hookups mean easier release - for the kids and for the fish … you can convert any operational bass or trout setup and like my daughter told her dad a lifetime ago :

    “ dad - it’s not what we kill … it’s what we lesrn !”

    Love ya Hogy

    Thanx ‘m
