The original Westin Swim Glidebait is a well established favorite amongst the pro guides, who are confident that all of their clients easily can cast and catch fish with it – it’s as simple as that! You can fish this multipurpose bait with “pull and wind” or on a steady retrieve, slow or fast, to create the action of a wounded, panicking baitfish and the panic can be increased with faster retrieves and regular pauses. As soon as the reel starts turning the unique S-curve swimming action of the Westin Swim will give you the very best odds. A wide selection of sizes, sink rates and proven colors makes the Swim a versatile fish-catching machine. Westin Swim – your secret weapon.
Fatnose Shad is a follow up to the popular Flatnose Shad. Just like its little brother, The Fatnose Shad can be rigged in many different ways to fit your fishing situation perfectly - for the shallow fishing you can just simply rig it on a Shallow Screw and a BFT Shallow Stinger - Stainless Steel. For fishing in deeper waters we recommend a BFT Flexhead Pike jighead with a weight that fits the depth you want to fish at, the deeper the heavier jighead. Don't forget to try and insert a Bauer Power Rattle in the paddle, this way you'll have all the odds on your side.

Since the Flatnose Shad was born 2015, it has became the favorite softbait for thousands of pike anglers all over Europe and it has caught a huge number of big pike. Now, it's time to say hello to it's brother…
When we filmed Fly vs Jerk 8 back in 2016, Niklaus Bauer was using a completely new kind of tail on his flies called "Dragon Tails". The movement of the tails were mind-blowing and they instantly proven themselves really effective.
We were amazed about these tails and instantly got the idea that this kind of tail has to work excellent on a softbait as well. So, we spoke with the man behind the Dragon Tail, Paolo Pacchiarini from Italy, and got his approval to use his awesome design. And here she finally is - the Flatnose Dragon.
The swimming action is ideal for cold water pike fishing - the body is slowly wiggling from left to right while the Dragon Tail does its magic in the back, sending out lots of seducing vibrations in the water. There is almost no limit to how slow you can fish this lure…
Rig it on a Shallow Screw or Flexhead Pike together with a Shallow Stinger Small. Rigged on a Flexhead Pike or regular jig head, some of the wiggling action of the body disappears but it still works wonders and catches loads of fish. Just imagine what this tail does on the drop if you give it a pause in the water… Make sure to be ready to set the hooks! Try to rig it in different ways to accomplish the best swimming action possible.
For maximum body movement, you can try to have the hooks free hanging instead of attached in the rubber. It's also important to get the shallow screw as centered as possible, or slightly offset closer to the belly of the lure. Every change in rigging can change the action and we recommend you to experiment until you find your favorite.
Our favorite is to have it shallow rigged and adjust the fishing depth with Fastach sinkers in various weights.

One of the first things people notice about the Guppie is the artwork. The paint schemes incorporate using paint or glitter on the INSIDE shell of the bait, in addition to painting on the outside. This mimics the technique Mr Peterson uses on his wood baits, layering paint between topcoats for a 3-D effect. It also prolongs the color of the bait fish after fish. Strike Pro has even replicated the signature 3-D eyes that TrueGlide lures are famous for.
In addition to the obvious good looks, the Guppie incorporates some unique design features that make it a top fish producer. The Guppie’s compact shape ensures that hook coverage is always maximized. While the convex body shaping from the top to the belly exposes the hook points for better hook sets. The body profiling also adds extra flash and belly roll. The tail types adds an extra dimension. The Guppie features an innovative spring screw at the tail of the bait. Change the dynamics of the bait simply by screwing on or off one of the optional tail types.
