Each pack contains 8 pieces. 

Implementing subtle changes to an otherwise generic classic design, has made all the difference. Introducing the most weedless swimbait with the best hooksets, made specifically for surf fishing in the California surf zone; Battlestar 5" Rib Bait.


Battlestar 5” Rib Baits feature the original invention Rib-Through-Groove ® design. Rig this bait Texas Rig style using the 5/0 Battlestar XLS Weighted Swimbait Hook. Bury the hook tip under one or two of the ribs inside the groove. Your hook tip will stay secured in the groove and protected from loose weeds and debris by the rib located directly in front of it. 


This Rib-Through-Groove® design is replicated on the bottom of the bait as well, so you can easily twist the bait on the spring bait keeper 180 degrees, then re-insert the hook to use the second groove. 


These Rib Baits are a true 5" (127mm) length.


We slimmed the body down a little to save hook gap for fish lips.


We also added a bulge where the hook penetrates the tail, to add some integrity so the tail won't get broken off as easily, as with other ribbed swimbaits.


The texture of this plastic is... perfect. Soft enough to allow maximum action and hooksets, while firm enough so the ribs can endure until they are bit by a fish.

Battlestar 5" ribbed swimbait is designed specifically for use with our 5/0 Battlestar XLS Weighted Swimbait Hook.

Only tried once from a pier great action I could see it clearly, no luck in two hours but no one was catching anything. I’m still very optimistic

Great product. Landed a halibut on my first day using it in the surf. (shorty, 16")
Would rate it a five but one of the baits had a small tear near the top end when I took it out of the package. Threw that one away to play it safe.


I lovet it
