WHAT IS IT?
Googan Squad Rival Glidebait
WHAT SETS IT APART:
Measuring 7 inches and weighing 2.1 ounces, the Googan Squad Rival’s body is formed from hard ABS plastic. The bait is built with a soft plastic that helps define the gliding action, while giving the bait a flexible, lifelike feel. With a 5.5-foot rate of fall (how far a bait descends in 10 seconds), the Rival comes in five common forage colors with a soft-touch rubberized matte finish. Options include bluegill, bone, baby bass, crappie and gizzard shad.
HOW DO I USE IT?
The two-piece glidebait sports a pair of 3X strong treble hooks and rotating hook hangers. This feature will help anglers catch more of what bites by minimizing the likelihood of the fish throwing the bait, if they bite at the end of a long cast, or at the moment of truth when you’re ready to boat flip your big fish.
Of all the baits to watch, a glidebait may be the most mesmerizing. Designed for realistically casual side-to-side swimming motion, these baits capture our focus because we know that when the strike occurs, it’s usually the big bass you’re looking for. The Googan Squad Rival was designed for slow retrieves with an S-wave action in the water. Sharply snapping the reel makes the bait cut left or right in a wide motion. The real killer comes from snapping the bait and giving it slack to spin 180-degrees for a face-to-face look at whatever is tracking it.
