Old Lures Still Work.

Recommended Posts

I just want to drop in and say happy holidays.

I been having trouble casting for over 8 years now with my back. I couldn't fish for too long. With my time limited i went out with my hottest lure colors here. The bass pro topnocker in black back chartruese (discontinued), the bomber 05 in red apple craw and the norman thin N in chartruese blue back produced bass right away. I only fished about 4 or 5 times this year. The bad back is under the doc's care right now and on the mend. BigBill

I buy a few new lures every year but mostly rely on old lures. Hooks are a lot better now and they have to be changed but the lures themselves kick bass.

I went in my dad’s tackle box a couple weeks ago and pulled out probably a fifteen year old crank bait and slammed them. Hope your back gets better so you can get out more.

i catch bass every year on an old wooden metal lipped brown bomber. also, a cotton cordel big o, and several others. fishing lures are tools, and good fishing tools will continue to produce fish year after year.

Glad to hear that you're mending and also that you've gotten the chance to get out a few times. I lost an entire season to a bum shoulder and drove anyone that would listen bonkers because I couldn't get out to fish.

I too have a couple of 'old favorites' including a Lazy Ike and a couple of home made in-line spinners. They don't get wet very often anymore, but when I'm feeling down, I'll break them and some fond old memories out and the blues don't stick around for long.

Pork rind lures date back t the early 1900's and jigs even further back dressed with feathers, we are talking true antique lure when you fish a jig n pig. The jig I fish with dates back to 1971 when the mold was made, I fish this jig dressed with deer hair and a Pedigo pork trailer design that dates back to the 50's, nearly every time I am bass fishing for 43 years. I have lost count on the number of DD bass caught on this old hair jig with pork trailers.
