“You can go in right after other anglers’ have tossed bladed jigs or other surface baits and really clean house,” exclaims Z-Man pro Miles “Sonar” Burghoff, referring to the new Turbo FattyZ swimming worm. “This is an amazing ElaZtech® bait that goes where wire baits and even swim jigs can’t, subsurface or right on top, such as the thickest pads or matted grass. Or I can pitch and skip the Turbo FattyZ way up beneath overhangs and docks and pull big bites. On the surface, the bait’s buoyant paddletail spits and sputters water. And when you pause it, the worm has this killer tail-waggling action as it slowly flutters.”
Now available at tackle retailers across America, the new Z-Man Turbo FattyZ is already impressing anglers with its versatility and easy-swimming, tail-vibe action. As Burghoff and other pro anglers will tell you, though, working shallow grass merely skims the surface of the versatile new bait’s talents.
“For several years, I searched for a high-performance swimming worm, but just couldn’t find one that clicked,” notes Burghoff, a Major League Fishing Pro Circuit competitor. “I wanted something with extra bulk and weight; a bait with some natural, neutral buoyancy that could be fished on the surface or below. When my friends at Z-Man listened to my wishes and helped me design the Turbo FattyZ, I knew the bait would be something special.
