The Scandinavian based brand Westin will soon be launching two deadly and unique saltwater lures. The easy fish and long casting Swim saltwater edition and the unique Flat Matt in two new body versions and sizes.
Suspending (Saltwater Edition) 4 3/4" - 2 1/8oz
The Swim lure has many benefits - a compact shape, a realistic baitfish imitation design and the ability to cast like a bullet through the harshest wind. These benefits, while awesome for freshwater fishing, make the lure a perfect candidate to be a saltwater champion - so that's exactly what we did. This saltwater edition of the Swim is aimed to target saltwater trophies like Redfish, Snook, Striped Bass, GT's and many more thanks to some new saltwater-specific paintjobs and new extra strong hooks and split rings.
The Swim is so easy to use, anyone could catch monsters on it. You can fish the swim with "pull and wind" or on a simple retrieve, either slowly or quickly, to create the action of a wounded, panicking baitfish and the panic can be increased with faster retrieves and regular pauses.
This salty cousin of one of our most successful lures just opened up a whole new world to anglers who prefer to be at sea.

When you stare at him in your tackle box, Flat Matt may look just that: flat! But the second this guy hits the water he bursts into life with an incredibly realistic swimming action on the drop aided by the curly tail and side skirts around his wide-profile body that looks amazingly appetizing to any hungry predator.
As with most of our lures, Matt is versatile. You can twitch and shimmy him along the bottom with subtle rod bumps, or retrieve him slowly to see him creep along. Alternatively, you can jig him faster and get him up into the pelagic zone - just make sure you're ready for action because this sight might be too much for some predators to resist.
Flat Matt may not realize it, but his kind are a hugely important food source in the watery food chain, making this lure a certain day saver!
