SEBILE's Mighty Magic Swimmer 95 ~ The Best Little Jointed Swimbait for Bass Fishing

The Magic Swimmer is the lure model that made Sebile popular in the USA. It is the one Sebile model that most anglers have heard the most about. Publicity for it started in spring of 2008 when bass pro Todd Faircloth said it helped him locate bass during practice, and he went on to win a Bassmaster Elite event on Amistad Lake, fishing the productive areas that the Magic Swimmer found in practice.

Soon thereafter, at the Bassmaster Elite event on Clarks Hill, Georgia, bass pro Kenyon Hill won that one with the help of the Magic Swimmer 125. Between those two Bassmaster wins, plus a lake record 17 pounder landed on the Magic Swimmer 165 in Japan at that same time, Sebile's Magic Swimmer received a lot of press publicity, and bass anglers everywhere became aware of Sebile and the Magic Swimmer. many for the first time.

Based on the publicized successes, many anglers tried the 165 and the 125 sizes, and they are both great lures. The only caveat is that the famed 165 is a pretty big swimbait. It's size is 'selective' for big bass, meaning the 165 is a little larger than you'd want to use most times and places for average bass. The 125 is also very good, and the 125's a little more in line with everyday lure sizes - but still bigger than most other crankbaits or jerkbaits one would ordinarily use.

Really, for most bass fishing, it is the relatively unpublicized Magic Swimmer 95 size that will work better for most anglers in most places.

The 95 (all shown above) is significantly smaller than the well-publicized 125 or 165 size Magic Swimmers.

Bass pro Todd Faircloth - the guy who first brought the Magic Swimmer to national attention - says he has increasingly been making more and more use of the Magic Swimmer across the country. I was talking with Todd about this the other day, and here's what he had to say.

"I think anglers as a whole, myself included, are still getting accustomed to swimbaits. The use of swimbaits overall, and particularly for me, is still growing. The more places and ways I use the Magic Swimmer, the more I like it and the more I use it," says Todd.

  • Magic Swimmer 165. On some of the country's biggest trophy bass waters like Amistad or Falcon in Texas, Todd opts for the beefier Magic Swimmer 165. "In order to be competitive on trophy bass lakes, you need to use the big Magic Swimmer 165 to produce big sacks of fish, otherwise you just won't be in the running," admits Faircloth.
  • Magic Swimmer 125. Todd favors the Magic Swimmer 125 for lakes like Rayburn, Toledo Bend or anywhere you find a decent largemouth bass fishery across the country. Overall, for many of the country's high profile tournament largemouth lakes and waters, it's the Magic Swimmer 125 that's Faircloth's preferred swimbait. "The 125's the size best-suited for most largemouth in most places that I compete on the pro tour," says Todd. "It's not only that you have to catch fish, but their weights need to be competitive, and the Magic Swimmer 125 is of a lure size that lets you be that."
  • Magic Swimmer 95. On the other hand, when Todd competes on prime smallmouth or spotted bass waters, Faircloth often downsizes to the Magic Swimmer 95, since smallmouth and spotted bass have smaller mouths than, and don't ordinarily grow as large on average as their bigger largemouth cousins. The Magic Swimmer 95 is almost more like a minnow, and in terms of its size, will attract quality smallmouth, spotted and largemouth bass too.

Keep in mind, Todd Faircloth is competing on the country's best bass waters, selected particularly for the quality and size of bass they produce. For the ordinary angler on ordinary bass waters, we're just not fishing for the same caliber of fish as the Bassmaster Elite pros. In many cases, we're on small bodies of waters or after small fish. That makes the Magic Swimmer 95 the overall best size for ordinary, everyday angling situations.

Size comparison of the 95 (bottom) and 125 (top). They are the two most useful Magic Swimmer sizes for most bass anglers - especially the 95. Think of the other hard baits you use, and for average angling, they're going to fall within the 78 to 100 size range - exactly where the Magic Swimmer 95 fits in with your fishing. If you live or fish somewhere that the 125 is a better day in/day out choice than the 95, consider yourself fortunate. For most other anglers, the 95 is going to prove to be the most consistent Magic Swimmer size.

So if you have overlooked the mighty Magic Swimmer 95; if you've instead focused on the 125 or 165, now may be the time to get realistic again, and go to the 95 for most fishing situations. The 95 really is the Magic Swimmer size that's more in line with the jerkbait and crankbait sizes you'd otherwise ordinarily use!

A Word on Hooks. The Magic Swimmer 95 can handle #4 or #6 hooks without any substantial effect on its action or productivity. So use whatever size (#4 or #6) suit the conditions, the size of the fish and the strength of your rod, reel and line.
