Keitech swing impact 5.8"  nice profile great action

 

I've used the 4 1/2"  ones ( the largest I could find at the time) they worked. I agree - nice profile and great action.

Mine came in a pack of 3 incl. 2 hooks one unweighted, one weighted.

I've never seen keitechs come with hooks, where did you get them? 4.8" come in a 4 pack typically.

I've caught pretty well with the 6.8 but the 7.8's are huge, I'm sure big bass would eat it I just don't have the confidence with giant baits yet, 4.8 and 5.8 still catch me the majority of my bass.

Bluegill flash is my favorite by far, but I really like the white with silver also, not sure what they call it.

How do they hold up to bluefish??

Is there a plastic that does? Maybe z man. Keitech’s honestly barely hold up to bass sometimes but the action is so good, that tail starts kicking with the slightest movement.

Try some bigger baits, it's worth it.  During the summer I rarely use smaller than a 10", you will still catch plenty of short fish, but the number of bigger fish goes way up.  Bumping up to a 14" bait will drop the number of fish you catch but greatly increase your average size.  Go large!

I've fished gator bluefish blitzes with 1 pack of zman. Youll lose your rig before a bluefish bites a zman in half

I’ve done the same, but I’ve also had them sliced in half with 1 fish, and getting them on a jig hook nice and straight is a pain, especially in the dark.

The 7.8 is wonderful.
