The Mud Slinger was designed by RAZOR BAITS founder/owner Jim Lanza in early 2014. It has an overall measures that is 5" long and is 15/16" tall and 1/2" wide. There is a 1 3/8" long, 3/16" deep hook slot on the belly and on the back and can easily handle a 6/0 wide gap hook. The body has 1/16" wide, 1/16" deep rings, evenly spaced 3/16" apart running from just rear of the nose all the way to the tapered unison of the tail. These rings trap air and causes a lot of vibration in the water to attract fish. The body tapers down to the tail unison to give it a bait fish type silhouette. Just rear of the belly hook slot is a 3/16" deep by 3/16" wide channel that runs down both sides from top to bottom and around the belly. This we refer to as a "hinge", which gives the Mud Slinger a "hip" wiggling type motion. The paddle tail is a 15/16" wide circle that is 1/8" thick and because of the tapered section just forward of the paddle tail, it has a very aggressive and erratic action.
The Mud Slinger is a swim bait and can be fished any way you want. It can be ran across the surface, as a wake bait, steady retrieve, twitching motion, stop and go or dead sticking. Which ever way you choose, hang on because the strikes are aggressive. Hooking recommendations is with either a screw lock, off set or Texas rigged in 5/0 or 6/0. It can be fished unweighted or weighted with a worm weight or a belly weight.
