D.O.A. Lures also makes a 3-inch Paddle Tail. Paired with a jig head, this lure looks great bouncing along the bottom. In addition to the beaver-type tail flipping up and down, the ribbed body produces pressure waves which make it easy for fish to locate. Bottom hugging species love it. Another attribute is that it is a very tough bait, standing up to much more abuse than typical soft-plastic tails. It’s not uncommon to catch several dozen fish on the same tail, and find it’s not the least bit mutilated at the end of the day. That makes it a very inexpensive lure to use—a dozen tails last a long time.
