Not all lures run the same we do need to check them closely to tune them. There can be little flaws in them

this is why out of 4 or 5 cranks being the exact same models one or two if your lucky will catch fish.

 

Rebel lures are good stuff.

 

I found this out when I bough 5 Red eye shad only 2 ran well and they caught fish the other 3 veer off to the sides.

Checked my local last night after reading this thread.... all gone.

 

I did pick up a Vendetta Rod for 29 bucks. Not a complete dissappointment

I haven't had much luck with cranks out of the dollar box at Walmart.  It seems like they are factory seconds, they have some defect somewhere.  I have found them, Rebels and Cordells especially, to be hard to tune and most of them won't stay tuned very long.   I've found the Walmart dollar box to be more trouble than it is worth.

 

On a positive note, I have found the Moss Boss to be a good bait.

I completely agree with this. Just by the split rings and hooks you can tell they are factory seconds or worse.

 

Check to see where they were manufactured. I think they come from factories overseas.

 

Dick's Sporting Goods does the same thing. I'd be leery of these, even if they are about a dollar.


All ya have to be, is a little smarter than the bass.

I grabbed some of the bone colored spooks for saltwater.  for $1, hard to beat them, even if they do rust out in a week.

A few months ago my Walmart had Cordell Super Spots for $1.20 if I remember right.  I had the clerk behind the counter check the price to make sure it was correct, then I bought three of them.

Just hit up my walmart again today for the $1 bin, bought the rest of the spooks in bone and a couple in clear. They still have a bunch of clear ones. Bought some more of the poppers too and grabbed a couple bags of yum f2 creature baits for a buck a bag. Be sure to check the clearance aisle and not the fishing dept, the fishing dept has NO SALES except for a couple shakespeare rods at my local walmart. The sales are in the clearance aisle. 

 

I think 25 should do me for a while on the spooks/PopR. 25 for the price of 5 is not a bad deal. 

 

They are factory seconds, no doubt about that. The package is labeled "hardbait" and nothing specific. But there is nothing wrong with a factory second topwater, I checked them over and could not find any flaws but a misaligned eye or a scratch in the paint. I would probably not buy a diving crankbait if it was a factory second though.

The moss boss you got is my secret weapon!! It is a weedless spoon and it out fishes frogs by a mile over pads, frogs seem better over matts but over pads the moss boss is a killer lure.

 

Man, I love that bait as well.  I can remember one trip to Ontario where I was flat out slaying pencil reed pike on the Moss Boss.

After reading this thread for so long I FINALLY got out to my Walmart and racked up. They were all out of Pop-Rs and any other lures, but tons of plastics and spinnerbaits. Everything was only $1.00.

Just out of curiosity I hit up a Walmart near where I work. They had Gamakatsu hooks for $2 a package. Strike King senko type baits for $2 a package. I am well stocked for worm hooks now! :)

What kind of crank? the craw cranks? I never had a problem with any rebel but you check out the Pop-rs and jumpin minnows that is what rebel does TOP WATER


Not sure what kind but its a shallow diving crank. It's got this funky texture like its made from this cheap plastic. It's has these small grooves that run from front to back. It's a horrible crank. Right outta the box I thought it was made by a mentally challenged monkey with two left hands.

I'm very hesitant to get any Rebel baits now.
