With a weight just over seven ounces the Dead Twitch is a bait you will need a heavier rod and reel to cast it with and lots of patience, but the reward can be the bass of a lifetime.

Matt lures Dead Twitch BaitThis is the second version of the Mattlures Dead Twitch with the 10″ model and once again Mattlures has put his professional signature paint job on the 10″ Dead Twitch bait with plenty of colors to choose from.

Mattlures Dead TwitchThe 10″ Mattlures Dead Twitch bait has a innovative hinge design that gives the bait very smooth movement while the bait sits on the water.

Mattlures 10" Dead Twitch BaitThe Mattlures 10″ Dead Twitch bait is a floating bait that was designed to sit just under the surface of the water and have some of the dorsal fin and tail stick out of the water.

Mattlures 10" Dead Twitch BaitThe Mattlures 10″ Dead Twitch baits were designed to sit just under surface and slowly be worked in, or just let it sit in one place while the wave action moves the bait, so being patient is key to catching bass with this bait.

Pros:  The Mattlures 10″ Dead Twitch has a very life like paint job which is key to its success and the internal design is by far ground breaking for a large swimbait.

Cons:  After a few hours of using the 10″ Dead Twitch it occasionally became water logged, but I found just letting it dry out for minutes and bleeding out any water that was trapped between the lures skin and internal bladder system fixed the problem.

Mike Long, is well known for monster bass, like the 20.12 oz largemouth bass taken from Dixon Lake in 2001. That fish put him at number ten on the world record list, but it wasn’t his only large fish. He is among a handful of bass fisherman with hundreds of fish over 10 lbs to his credit.
