I Think We're About To See A Surge On Livingston Lures...

Recommended Posts

Randy said he used a new livingston lure today that was I think about a medium range crankbait. That him and some others help designed. If that's true when we see the video next week u can bank on livingston making some sales off that.

Yeah Livingston will get some attention for sure however he did not "win" off a Livingston lure he "won" off a $6 Rapala DT6 in the "demon" color.

It's silly that people would run out and buy them based on that only.

 

Yeah it is silly but people will feed into it and buy the crap out of them.

Interesting.  I don't know if anyone else caught the live take out footage on bassmaster.com  What I caught, even with the cruddy feed, he used a Rapala DT6 in a red crawfish pattern to catch most of his fish today.  Now all he had to do was catch some fish on the lure you speak of above but to me that sounds like a smoke screen.   Main reason is he also stated that he wasn't sponsored by Rapala.  :eyebrows:

I was typing this as you posted.  Did you catch the live take out footage or do you have other sources?  :grin:

Happens every year with a lure of the classic being a big deal people went sq bill crazy when kvd won it that year.

That's what I was wanting to see next week cause I know he's wearing a Livingston jersey. And I'm sure had to give them props but to me it sounded like livingston made the day on Sunday... Let's go to the video! Ha

Oh of course he did at the weigh in.  What I'm saying is when Davy interviewed him, just as he came off the water, he said he used the DT6 for "most" of his fish today.  He went on to say "even  though I am not sponsored by them."  Now you tell me.  Would you plug a company you weren't sponsored by or the one you are sponsored by?  I'm sure he caught some on the Livingston.   :eyebrows:

What am I missing here? He told what bait he caught the fish on. Are you all saying there's supposed to be some motive behind it?

I watched the whole live takeout footage they had and he pretty much said that he was handed a prototype lure from Livingston but that he really didn't use it much and he only had "one" of them and he was a little scared to lose it because he kept getting snagged. I thought it was funny the part he said about IKE gave him 4 of that "demon" color awhile back and I guess going into day 3 he had lost them and he had to ask Brandon P for some more in that color and he helped him out and gave him 3 more in that "demon" color.

Agree they always thank their sponsors but they will throw their confidence baits.

Haha yea I think there was some chatter last year with Pace, he was sponsored by Jackall but I think some said he was throwing the ole classic Smithwick to get fish.

After mentioning Pace, I Have to say it, I'm glad randy looked liked he was excited to win ha.

I don't believe there is a motive.  I do believe they will plug a sponsor whether they caught many fish off of it or not.  What CJV and I stated above, was watched live on bassmaster.com  Davy Hite was interviewing the anglers coming off of the water.

Was he not? Or did he later say something else?

At the weigh in he said he  caught a bunch with the Rapala DT and then said he wasn't sponsored by them but then said he switched to the new lure from Livingston. He said he forgot he had it until he started dumping lures out.

That being said I did buy a few a couple weeks ago my curiosity got to me.

This was posted in another forum.

"He said he used the Rapala to catch most of the fish then culled out 4 of his keepers today with the Livingston prototype. It is on the interbiew video at athe ramp just go to about the 17:00 minute mark. As best I could tell he ain't trying to say anything except the truth, He actually mentions he is not sponsored by Rapala but he has to use what works some days if his sponsor stuff does not."

There ya go.  That feed was in and out.  It was a great idea interviewing them at the ramp fresh out of the water.  I just hope they get the glitches fixed.  It wasn't watchable at times.

He said the same thing during the live weigh in. Most of his fish were off a rapala then he switched to a prototype Livingston he didn't know he had. He even mentions that you can see it on the video when it airs on tv. Also said that he wasn't sponsored by Rapala and they have to use what works.

Off Topic, I don't understand what that sound Livingston lures make, do people actually fall for that crap?

The DT6 was getting plugged all day long from Zona and Crew.  Seems like a lot of the guys were throwing it.
