Gear & Accessories Lures Finesse News Network’s Gear Guide: Lunker City’s four-inch Swimmin’ Ribster Ned Kehde December 3rd, 2012 | More From Ned Kehde Share0 Tweet Email Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+ Rich Zaleski of Stevenson, Connecticut, has written many insightful words about the manifold virtues of a paddle-tail grub for finesse presentations. In his masterful discourses, he has also explained how he employs a paddle-tail grub to allure scores of largemouth and smallmouth bass. And Lunker City, where Zaleski used to work, has recently christened its four-inch Swimmin’ Ribster. It is a byproduct of the 4 1/2-inch Ribster worm that Lunker City and Zaleski created in 2011. Its torso and tail is ringed with 31 ribs. Like its brother, the Ribster worm, its belly is rather corpulent while the core of its tail is slender. The bulkiness of its torso improves its durability, and the slenderness of it tail helps extenuate the action of the paddle, which some anglers call a boot. The paddle portion of the tail is rounded and endowed with what Lunker City calls an “action pocket.” This unique paddle configuration, which is affixed to the slender-ribbed tail, allows the entire tail to rotate and swing tempestuously from side to side. Anglers can rig it on either a jig or weighted swimbait hook. It is available in 25 colors. A package of 10 can be purchased for $4.19.
