The IMA Salt Skimmer is reported to be the only top water, hard plastic surface lure with the slender profile of a soft plastic stickbait.
A weighted internal system allows the lure to zig zag and create large swirls and ever widening surface boils on retrieve.
The Salt Skimmer is equipped with Owner ST 36 hooks, weighs 14g and measures 110mm.
It's slim profile and weighted tail gives it serious momentum when cast.
The slim profile of the Salt Skimmer has proven to be one of the most appealing bass lure shapes ever. There’s a whole lot to be said simply for this slender profile and silhouette, and the IMA Salt Skimmer is really the only topwater hardbait that has it. A large part of the Skimmer’s action is caused on the ending movement of each zig or zag as the tail-weighted back end of the lure stirs the water wildly causing a large boil. So, every time the Skimmer moves left or right, the final movement of the weighted tail stirs the surface into a large boil, and the Skimmer slips out barely ahead of the boil, just like a desperate baitfish. The Skimmer’s action then becomes a non-stop series of ever-widening boils emanating behind it. It’s like having a school of surface-feeding baitfish on the scene. If there’s ever anything that gets a non-committal bass to bite, it is other bass feeding in front of it - and that’s the competitive feeding cue that the Skimmer’s tail-stirring movement sends out to all bass within range of sensing the surface-feeding boils trailing out behind the Skimmer.
