Mark, where did you find a 10" BBZ? All I have seen are the 8".

These smallmouth are just a sample of the countless numbers we catch while Musky fishing. The baits here are a Joe Bucher Slop Master and one of our own Musky Rockets 8"..... Woodie, your five inch model would probably rock for smallmouth.

Okay Woodie... I just had to ask. Actually, it's been a while since I've seen you post and I just wanted to say hello. I still think the picture by RJBass was pretty wild; a smallmouth on a musky bait... Geez

I stand corrected.
I just went out to the boat and measured it, and you're right, it's not 10", it's only 8 1/2".
I guess I just don't know what 10" looks like. )

lol Mark, I'm tempted to make a remark, but am barely restraining myself...
Actually I know of one study where size of lure affected the size of bass caught but not the catch rate.

I must have been confused with the 10" triple trout. Yeah, that's the ticket! )
I see some of the swim baits my friends and other guys out here in SoCal are throwing, and mine look small by comparison. )

You know what they say, it's not the size, it's the motion of the ocean.
Or action of the lure,

This is getting pretty deep. Better break the rubber boots.
Next thing you'll tell me the motion causes morning sickness. )

I generally stay less than 8" for most of the lakes I fish, such as Amistad, Falcon, and Choke Canyon. I live a good ways from those lakes, so I like 6" baits for the lakes around here.
