The 5 inch Big Hammer™ swimbait is the most popular of all the Big Hammer™ swimbait sizes. Originally designed for calico bass fishing off the coast of Southern California and Baja Mexico, the 5 inch Big Hammer™ swimbait proves daily that not only is it one of the best lures for calico bass but it is an excellent lure for nearly all species that inhabit the inshore and offshore waters of the West Coast. On the East Coast it is quickly becoming a very popular bait for large redfish in the South and striped bass in the North. It is also a great freshwater bass bait with an 18 lb. largemouth and 8 lb. spotted bass to its credit.
