This week’s Bassmaster Elite Series event on the Toledo Bend Reservoir was crowded with Zoom Bait pros near the top of the leaderboard.  Zoom pro Gerald Swindle just missed the win by one ounce to angler Dean Rojas.  Swindle is on a tear this year after winning the B.A.S.S. Southern Open at Lake Toho, then finishing 2nd at the Southern Open on Lake Norman.

Swindle caught most of his fish at Toledo Bend on a jerkbait.

Zoom pro Andy Montgomery finished the final day with 15lbs, 14oz good enough for 6th place and a very strong showing at Toledo Bend.

Montgomery threw a prop bait on a Fetha Styx rod the first day, and then flipped a 1/2-ounce Shooter jig with a Zoom Big Salty Chunk trailer throughout the rest of the tournament.

Zoom pro Marty Robinson also had a solid tournament finishing 18th with 44lbs, 9oz for three days of fishing.

  1. I am still looking for a video on the Zoom Bait Comp. website that shows us new users of fluke baits –how to properly put hooks in these baits–what size hook is best–what brand of hook you recommend. THESE ARE NOT THE EASIEST BAITS TO PUT A HOOK INTO!!! OR FISH AND CATCH FISH WITH. MAYBE I AM NOT DOING IT RIGHT AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW. YOU GUYS WHO MADE THIS PRODUCT SURELY HAD AN IDEA OF HOW THEY WERE TO BE HOOKED AND USED. HOW ABOUT GIVING US FISHER PEOPLE & POTENTIAL BUYERS OF MORE ZOOM BAITS SOME ADVICE ON HOW TO USE YOUR PRODUCT!
