The 5 inch Big Hammer™ swimbait is the most popular of all the Big Hammer™ swimbait sizes. Originally designed for calico bass fishing off the coast of Southern California and Baja Mexico, the 5" Hammer proves daily that not only is it one of the best lures for calico bass but it is an excellent lure for nearly all species that inhabit the inshore and offshore waters of the West Coast. It is also a great freshwater bass bait with an 18 lb. largemouth and 8 lb. spotted bass to it's credit.
Because of it's versatility the 5" Hammer is designed to be used with a wide range of jig heads. All sizes of our jig heads with a 4/0 or 5/0 hook will work great. Pick the best weight for your application.
