Zoom Brush Hog (soft plastic creature bait)

Smallmouth Bass often seek shelter under rocks or other structure, and are more likely to bite on a soft plastic creature bait that mimics their natural prey. The Texas rigging technique allows the bait to be fished in a variety of ways, making it easier to adjust to the behavior of the fish as conditions change.

Launch your boat at the Plattsburgh Boat Basin Boat Launch and make your way to deeper water with plenty of structure, such as rocks or submerged logs. Cast your line and start fishing with the Texas rig Zoom Brush Hog, dragging the bait along the river bed with short, sharp motions.
