Phantom Lures Phantom Softail
The Phantom Lures Phantom Softail is an incredible slow-sinking jerkbait with a soft tail. This lure will give you the hookset reliability of a hard bait with the teasing action of a soft bait. Use a side-to-side "walk-the-dog" action combined with a slight rolling of the bait at the end of each glide for an incredible presentation with tantalizing belly flash. The Phantom Softail is a countdown's dream for suspended fish.

Legendary bait, will require a bit of skill to find your rhythm
by TomVanAtta -
A great bait for when musky (or even other species) are finicky. These things will get CRUSHED when you pause them- on the slow vertical fall, the bait will wobble side to side ever so slightly, like a hesitating baitfish. The soft tail is always working, even when you aren't. The only downside is that I personally see a lot of people get discouraged with these lures almost immediately. They take some skill to work, and for that reason, many people just give up on them. But if you hang with it, and once you find that rhythm and correct 'snap' of the rod tip (or, if you've used gliders at all before), these things are hard to beat. Some of the most violent strikes I've seen have been on these lures right below the surface. The live series color patterns are beautiful underwater. The 4" model is excellent for spring and smaller species, while the larger models excel in the fall when the musky are extra hungry, and want a slightly slower presentation.
