Like I honestly needed to buy an Evergreen SB-125. I have enough lures and baits to open my own store, but because I’m a sucker, I ended up buying two of these baits, because God forbid I miss out on the biggest bass of my life. There’s only one person to blame for this and it’s Bill Quatrucci, owner of BiCO Jigs.
We’re heading down to Mexico, and Bill posts… ...Read More
I picked up some R+A custom Baits Bloodline Swimbaits for my upcoming trip to Mexico. A top producer down there at Lake Baccarac is the Alabama (umbrella) rig. Another little known secret is that a little bit of chartreuse goes a long way down there. That being said, as I was scrolling down furiously on my Instagram app, I came across these sick looking paddle tail… ...Read More
When it comes to certain fishing techniques, drop shot is one of those techniques that I need serious help with. I watch those MLF guys on tv catching boatloads of smallies, non-stop. Maybe they’re on to something? I scored two drop shot technique-specific boxes from Samatis Baits. The kit includes everything you need to fish the drop shot technique,… ...Read More
Is the new 6th Sense Vega Frog going to be the new goto hollow body frog? I think so. I hope the Vega frog performs as good as it looks. I’m not a fan of the Lunkerhunt frogs anymore as they just don’t last. A couple of failed hook sets and the hooks drive into the hollow body and they’re toast. They end up filling with water and don’t swim right… ...Read More
What was I thinking buying this Jackall Chop Cut Prop Bait? Talk about catching a sucker, I fell for it. This is the dumbest lure purchase I have ever made. I am never going to throw this bait, ever. The Jackall Chop Cut looks like a lure that would work, but the reality is, it looks like its flimsy made. I don’t see this lure lasting more than a few good fish before… ...Read More
Here is my quick UPRVR Javelin Bait Bag Review. In my never-ending quest for the perfect storage system for plastics, I think I have found a winner. Have you heard of the company UPRVR? If not, you should check them out. UPRVR products are designed and made in the good old USA.
I’m a little bit old-school, and I had convinced myself that all tackle should be… ...Read More
I did it, I bought a Megabass Big Gabot hollow-bodied frog. As a matter of fact, I purchased two of them. In my pursuit of the best hollow-bodied frog, I came across the Megabass Gabot Hollow bodied frog while surfing on Amazon. Surprisingly I was able to pick them up for $16.57 with free shipping. I have a rule I’ve been following for a while now, I will not spend… ...Read More
The Abu Garcia Zata is Abu’s new sub $200 low profile fishing reel. The Zata comes in at a decent price point and can be had for around $175. The Zata is not as pricey as some other reels, it’s still up there in cost. Would you pony up for this Shimano Curado competitor? In my opinion, if this reel performs anywhere near my Abu Garcia Revo Rocket, then this… ...Read More
Is the Teckel Bladewaker really going to be a game-changer? To me and a lot of other folks, it looks like a chatterbait copy. The Bladewaker is not available yet, so no one has had the opportunity to fish it. I have watched the video posted below and I can say that if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it’s a duck.
This is Bladewaker
So, what makes this so… ...Read More
I’m late to the game, but I’m sure you have heard about the wobble head jig also referred to as a swing head jig. My first encounter with these swing head jigs was during my recent trip to Mexico. I caught my biggest bass and personal best bass on a wobble head jig. The Bass weighed in at 8 pounds and 13 ounces.
If you have not read about my trip to Mexico, you… ...Read More
