Tackle Tuesday & Giveaway

With all of the cold weather I figured this week we’d discuss a great bait for cooling water, below 65 degrees. It’s the Strike King Titanium Umbrella Rig. I rig mine with 1/8 oz SK Squadron Swimbait Jigheads and 4 in SK KVD Swim N Shiners in Ghost Shad.


1. Application- my favorite areas for this technique are where the channel comes close to the bank, around bridges, and around channel swing points. Make a long cast and try to retrieve your rig at the depth you are seeing the most bait and fish. Occasionally I’ll snap the rod which will make the baits flare on the titanium rig.

2. Modifications- Sometimes I will color one of the Swimbait bellies red and if the water is dingier I’ll throw the bladed version of the rig.

3. Recommended Tackle-
Power Tackle Swimbait/Umbrella Rig 4-7-11
25 lb Seaguar Invizx
Shimano Curado 300EJ 6:9:1
