Not much to look at out of the water but just drop it in and watch it shake. Loaded with salt, the Hot Rod has a slow fall rate that makes it a great wacky style bait. Fish it weightless in the pads and grass, or Carolina rigged on the drops and bars. The 4 1/2" model of the hot rod is a unbeatable ned rig worm! Doesn't matter if your a pro, or just a novice fisherman, these easy to use baits will catch them when nothing else will.
