6˝" Hammer

The 6˝ inch Big Hammer™ swimbait is the third largest size in the Big Hammer™ line-up.  In saltwater the 6˝ is a very popular bait among calico, striped bass, rockfish and lingcod anglers. In the West Coast freshwater scene it is used quite often in the trout colors for big largemouth bass and landlocked striped bass. The 6˝" Hammer is also a favorite among pike and musky anglers in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

Jig Heads: The 6˝" Hammer works well with all sizes of Hammer Heads™ from 3/4 oz. to 1.5 oz. with a 5/0 hook.
