White, Pink, Amber, Olive
Shaped to replicate the small baitfish and squid that False Albacore and Bonito inhale. Also a great imitator of baby sandeels for when Striped Bass are keying in on them. Designed to cast farther than all other unweighted soft plastics of its size.
If you are targeting hardtails, generally keep the Albie Snax close to, if not on the water's surface. The speed with which these small tunas strike is breathtaking, so topwater fishing is our preferred method of targeting them. A fast retrieve is usually best; try to make the Snax skip and splash to draw the fish in. If you are doing this and an albie strikes but doesn't hook up, keep cranking and if anything speed it up on the next crank. The fish will come back to hit again more often than not. The composition of this bait also allows for it to be fished near the surface with slow retrieve, a trait not found in weighted offerings. This is important when only a few fish are breaking, as a fast retrieve will draw the lure out of the strike zone too quickly. Test your nerve and see if you can allow the bait to just sit in the fray, perhaps giving it a twitch or two. The results can be incredible.

The screw-in style hook is designed to allow for weedless rigging, very similar to that of a standard offset bend worm hook. The screw provides slightly better durability than an offset hook, and it pairs up seamlessly with the Albie Snax.
