The 5" SLAM-R is a go to in fresh or salt water applicaitons. The segmented body and the fish-like tail make this a jerk bait like no other. The SLAM-R has great action fished weightless, on a split shot rig, or carilona rig in the fresh water. Take this bait to the salt water and throw it on a jig head or under a popping cork and just let it do its thing! You wont be dissapointed.
