The Bottom Line

I received a Sebile Magic Swimmer 95 to test and was amazed at how realistic it looked in the water and how far I could cast it. I was disappointed that it did not suspend when paused. I caught a bass on it the third cast I made with it at Lake Martin in very clear water.

Pros

  • Very realistic looking in the water
  • Casts very well
  • Natural swimming action
  • Comes in four sizes and ten colors
  • Owner hooks

Cons

  • Sinks when stopped, does not suspend

Description

  • Very natural swimming action when reeled with a steady retrieve
  • Darts and flashes with a slight rod tip twitch
  • Casts a long way for such a small bait
  • Available in four sizes
  • Ten colors are available
  • Owner hooks are very sharp and hold fish well

Guide Review - Sebile Magic Swimmer

I tested the Sebile Magic Swimmer 95 in Bronze Shiner at Lake Martin while practicing for a club tournament. The water at Martin is very clear and the bait looked great in the water. I was amazed at how far I could cast such a small bait. I also liked the action when I twitched it. It would dart and flash then go back to a natural swimming motion. The third cast I made a two pound spotted bass ran to it and slammed it.

During the second day of the tournament I was having a tough time, with no fish at 11:00. I worked some small pockets with wood in them, fishing a varitey of baits without a hit. I started throwing the Magic Swimmer over the logs and caught a keeper largemouth. I also saw two more come up to the plug, one I hooked for a second but it came off. I think a more natural color would have worked better in the clear water.

The Sebile Magic Swimmer is a good bait to throw in the wind and it casts a long way. It looks very natural in the water just reeling it along but you can make it dart and flash with a rod tip twitch.
