The Slide Swimmer 250 is a magnum bait in its own class that is made for giant bass. The bait features a lifelike movement and composite soft-shell body with an ABS hollow core to make the perfect big bass bait.
The large 250mm body helps to draw fish from long distances and makes it the perfect choice for trophy hunting or searching for the new world-record class fish.
The “new slide swimmer 250” reacts to each rod movement with both moderate and fast movements and meanders in a tantalizing glide at moderate speeds to generate reaction strikes.
The bait was introduced at a time when a big bait of this size and profile was unheard of and only in dreams and since then it has seen extreme demand from big bass hunters that are in the know.
The Slide Swimmer 250 is the bait for those who are only after the biggest fish in the area.
TYPE: SLOW SINKING
The massive 250mm body creates powerful and lifelike vibration. The power of the bait is made for big bass and should be used when smaller baits are not an option because you are looking for big bass only.
ABS CORE BODY
The ABS hollow-core body allows for crisp and sharp gliding action and allows the bait to feature a microspring weight inside of the bait for added appeal. The weight is added outside of the front core and lets you easily tune the lure and adjust the weight by removing the soft shell.
SPRING WEIGHT MICRO VIBE SYSTEM
The spring weight system is mounted on the head and produces micro-vibrations each time the weight is shaken. This helps to trigger bites with a knocking sound that is created when the lure is retrieved.
TROUBLELESS BUMPER FIN
The troubleless fins imitate fins while also preventing hooks from getting tangled on the body of the bait. This is a big advantage in the big bait game as one wasted cast could be fatal and you may miss an opportunity at a true giant. Also, by controlling the movement of the hook during the retrieve, it increases your hookup percentage.
INSERT PLATE / RATTLE
The insert plate built into the ABS core body is adds a vivid reflection that shines through the soft shell. The picture shows a bait without the spring weight system installed yet, but the front body is equipped with a 10mm steel ball rattle.
The hook is a 1/O that has a smooth surface for better hook presentation. This hook was carefully selected because of the size of the bass that bite this lure and the tin color helps to camouflage the hook against the belly of the bait. For added attraction, you can replace the stock hooks with feathered trebles to give it a more natural look, especially in current.
The dampening effect provided by the outer soft shell suppresses unnatural noise from the joints during the retrieve, and creates a smooth and natural action.
WATER THROUGH DUCT
The duct between the core body and soft shell captures the water flow inside the body during the retrieve and discharges the water at the joint creating a natural swimming look.
The realistic gliding action from the bait can be done with a straight retrieve and imitates a vulnerable forage fish.
Big fish do not want to invest energy on small baitfish and want a bigger meal of this size. The size of the bait also simultaneously simulates an intruder coming into their territory and makes them aggressive.
The large bait has a big drawing power and can be fished a variety of ways depending on your rod angle and retrieve speed.
TWITCH & JERKING
The bait reacts swiftly to rod movements such as twitches and jerks and imitates a defenseless baitfish that is in a predator’s territory. The irregular action creates triggers a feeding reaction from big bass.
Deps takes pride in the unique action of this bait and how easy it is to work with the rod.
