The 3 inch Big Hammer™ swimbait is the "catch anything" swimbait. It is the swimbait of choice when fishing small bodies of water, shallow areas, or simply covering water and looking for fish. Whether you are targeting smaller fish or trying to match small prey that larger fish are feeding on - from a bluegill to yellowtail, this bait will catch, and has caught, them all. On a 1/4 oz. jig head it is a perfect shallow water bass lure that is great for covering a lot of water and subtle depth changes at the same time with one bait. In addition to freshwater bass, it is an excellent bait for inshore saltwater fishing on both the East and West Coasts of the U.S. In the West it is one of the most popular baits for inshore halibut and surf perch, the occasional White Seabass, and one of the "go to" baits for Spotted Bay Bass. In the East it has proven itself as an excellent soft plastic bait for trout and redfish.
There are three sizes of Hammer Heads™ that were designed to fit the 3 inch Big Hammer™ swimbait. The most common jig head used with the 3" Hammer is the Hammer Head™ 1/4 oz. with a 2/0L (light wire) hook or the 1/4 oz. 2/0 (regular wire) hook. The 3/16 oz. - 2/0L Hammer Head™ is the next best thing when a lighter head is desired while the 3/8 oz. 2/0 works great if a little more weight is needed.
