The Optimum Baits Baby Line Thru 3" features an irresistible tight body roll and pulsating tail kick that fish can't resist. This bait is perfect for locating fish quickly by fan casting in the shallows or slowly dragging in deeper areas. The BLT offers a unique and simple way to be rigged. Run your line THRU the bait and tie on the lazer sharp treble hook. When the fish strikes the bait, many times it will pull free allowing the bait to run up your line when fighting the fish thus saving your bait for future use. Use the 3IN BLT with a medium action rod about 6' / 7' on 8/14lb line. The Baby Line Thru is designed to fish with a moderate to fast retrieve.
