The G-Ratt Baits Poppa Pete Swimbaits are a silent slow sinking glide bait weighing 5 Ounces and 10 inches in length equipped with heavy-duty hardware, size 2/0 hooks, and rotating hangers. The tails are easily replaceable. Papa Pete has a nice wide glide on slow reel cranks and then can be fished fast for an erratic baitfish action and sinks extremely slow in a level position.
This is a very unique glide bait. You can slow retrieve it for a nice gliding action. You can swoop the rod tip for the bait to glide to one side and pause and swoop again to bring it back to the other side. A favorite retrieve is reel cranking it to make a very fast darting action back and forth like a fleeing baitfish. You can do little twitches of the rod with just the tip of the rod while reeling and the baits head will rock left to right which will imitate a swimming baitfish.
The bait can also be “waked” on a slow retrieve when brought to the surface. It has a beautiful tight subtle rolling wake which we’ve found effective early mornings and late evenings. Our new weighting system adds a realistic rattling sound. This bait has a slow sinking ratio of 1 foot in 2-3 seconds.
