Castaic Boot Tail 8″


SKU: CSBT-8 Categories: , , , , , Tag:


Tail based swimming action comes alive with the Castaic Boot Tail. Like its smaller cousin, the Boot Tail Sardine, the Boot Tail is a soft body lure. Its perfectly-weighted trout-shaped body makes it easy to fish. Just cast or troll it, move it fast or slow.

Field and Stream named the SBT “One of the 50 greatest lures of all time” in 2006. In it, they wrote:

It’s worth getting one of these big, soft-plastic swimbaits just to watch it swim on the end of your line. The lifelike action is mind-boggling. It’s named after the Southern California reservoir where monster largemouths get that way by gorging on hatchery rainbow trout.

They’ll gorge on this lure, too, and not just in California. Let the slow-sinking, 8-inch lure get down to the edges and dropoffs where trout and bass intersect. Crank, twitch, and hang on for dear life.

The textured scale and details of the bait move beyond aesthetics. The raised gill plate and fin, bulging eye, and thumping tail add to the realism.

The bottom of the Boot Tail features an extra eye for additional hooks.

The Castaic Boot Tail is available in 28 colors, 4″, 6″, 8″, and 10″ sizes and fast and slow sinking models.
