Lure: 4" & 6" Twister® Tail
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Pike, Northern - WalleyeI use this bait all the time I'm out fishing with other lures as well. White is my choice of color in 4" either rigged with red or chartruese jigs in 1/8oz to 3/8oz. I've even tried using the twister with float jigs when drop shotting for walleye along the bottom. I've just also started to add these to my bass spinner baits for more action. I do alot of early morning fishing for walleye and white bass using this lure with a red jig I can search for these fish fast knowing that they will bite it. At midday or dawn I mostly go with the chartruese jig for large and smallmouths along the rocky shorelines as well as scoring walleyes. For some reason the crappies perfer the 4inch curly tail instead of the 3inch when I pitch it beside docks. This is a great multi species lure.
Lure: Keeper™ Worm Hooks
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White)I used the 2/0 Keeper hook for the past 10years. The hook handled a 10 lb. bass like a small fish. There is no other big fish hook out there for me. Keep up the good work.
Lure: Tri-Alive Top Prop®
Fish Caught: Bass, LargemouthThis can be fished in many ways. You can try all different presentations but i'm sure that all will work. I have even stopped moving it and let the trailer sink and have caught fish. The top prop is almost sitting vertical when they strike it. Its one of my favorite top water action lures in the early hours of the morning or the evening hours just before dark. I have caught my biggest bass during these times on the top prop. Its also a search bait in the really heavy weeds too. Don't let the thick weeds send you home, get the weedless stuff and keep on fishing. Remember its not luck in fishing..... its skill!!!!!!!!!!!
Lure: Exude™ 3¾" ShrimpOn a recent grouper trip out of Alligator Point, Fl., we were catching dozens of small grouper(16-18inches), but no keepers. Captain Bill Giddens noted that the grouper were spitting up rock shrimp while we unhooked them. We were fishing with live pinfish and dead alewives. I had some Exude shrimp in my bag (nightglow/green tail) and gave them a try, sending one down on the same rig we were using for bait fishing. The first drop immediately produced a 22 pound red grouper, the biggest of the day. Captain Bill was pleasantly surprised.
