These guys are amazing, they are the only soft bait company I trust other than GY. High quality US made baits with great action, anybody else use these?

I haven't used them, but I checked out their website. Can you elaborate on why they are so amazing.......Do they have colors you can't normally find, is their customer service oustanding??

Unless I missed something they seem like your typical softplastic baits and jigging spoons.

With you being in Virgina I'm surprised you aren't using River Rock Baits, they are hands down the best tube you'll ever fish and the Jakes Craw is now my main trailer for finesse jigs, super soft with a lot more durability than I ever imagined.

I live in VA and I've never heard of them :o

What makes their Jakes Craw better than something like Rage Tail Craw for a jig trailer?

Rage craws are a different animal than the Jakes craw, I use it for finesse jigs where I want a trailer that adds some bulk but not too much plus it gives it a more realistic profile and fall with a subtle action. Finesse jigs are different in that you want to give the fish a smaller more subtle presentation and the Jakes craw is perfect, the rage craws which I use on my swim jigs and flipping jigs add too much bulk and have an exaggerated action for a finesse jig. Trust me, the Jakes craw on a finesse jig or a plain 1/8oz jig head is a fantastic bait when the fish become finicky.

Oh ok, I don't use finesse jigs but I have 3/8 oz Flip and Swim, and Swim Jigs coming in and I'll be trying the Rage Tail Craw on them.

Customer Service, they had discontinued their one of their colors and I asked if there was a way I could get them somewhere and they sent me 6 packs of their worms of the discontinued colors for 2$. They are really nice people:)

When you use those tubes you'll see how well they perform. I buy them by the 100ct. in the 3" and 3.5" size, the 3" I use just on the river for smallies rigged with a jig head with a 2/0 hook, the 3.5" I use on the river with a jig head with a 3/0 hook and on the local lakes texas rigged with an EZ tube insert weight and a 2/0 EWG hook, it is one of the best presentation for skipping docks.

Why do you only trust GYCB and HRT rather than other soft bait companies. I heard you like HRT's customer service but our sponsors Rage Tail and Bite It help keep this site up and running while answering questions about their product and taking in ideas from their customers. It's not often that you can get help with catching fish straight from the designer of the product. As far as I see it, GYCB is overpriced and doesn't give back much to the fishing community. Even if they catch more fish.

There site doesn't have much on there, but I do like a good tube. If I can find them somewhere on the internet, I would try them out.

I buy those too man, I'm just saying I prefer those two bait companies. I agree, you can't get feedback like that from many companies. Gotta love rage.
