As though building 10X Tough ElaZtech baits wasn't enough, Z-Man has taken another giant leap in soft bait technology. The introduction of NEW SCENTED baits are extremely alluring to saltwater species.

While a number of other scented baits are notorious for their stiff, lifeless feel, Z-Man ElaZtech Scented BaitZ are incredibly soft and buoyant and feature life-like detail. Each bait is infused with 100% Natural scents derived from real baitfish, not some lab technician's idea of what will attract fish. These natural scents provide the precise smell that triggers strikes from saltwater gamefish.

And when a fish strikes, the scent means that they're likely to hold on longer, increasing chances for a solid connection with the hook. Sniff out the big ones with New Z-Man ElaZtech Scented BaitZ!

Bass can't resist!
IF you hook them right so they can be twitched, walk the dog so to speak, no weight, twitch them slow, big bass will destroy them.

Great bait!
Good action. Triggers that reaction bite with good elasticity, they last. Work well inshore.

Stripers love these things.
Stripers in the Chesapeake Bay really attack these lures, both 5" and 7". They are incredibly tough and outlast similar products by Bass Assassin and Zoom. Effective both jigging and casting.
ProsTuff! Action.

Hello, what is the best jig head for these 5 inches please? I am looking especially at the hook size (I guess weight depends on many factors). So brand and size would be great. Thanks!

The hook size you will need will vary depending on whether you are fishing saltwater or freshwater, and the specific fish you are targeting. Same thing for the jig head weights, technique, currents, depth, and the conditions you are fishing in general will apply to which oz jig you should order. 1/2oz and 3/8oz are good sizes to use for the Jerk Shadz. Kalin's Lures Ultimate Jig Heads, Hogy X-STRONG Jig Heads, or VMC's are a few suggestions to check out on our site.
