Anyone tried one and how'd you do? I'm gonna pick one up tonight and give it a shot tomorrow. I will make sure to post my results.

I just get that feeling by looking at it that if bought one, I'd be the first ''fish'' caught. Good luck.

IMO crank bait color really isn't that important since its more of a reaction bait, so the fish doesn't really get a good look at the detail. The jerk bait on the other hand might be worth a try, the fish can get a good look at it on the pause.

Lure color is very important. Dr Loren Hill proved that in his ten year research into bass seeing certain colors sometimes do to the hues of the water, the sunlite, water conditions and lighting conditions. There are times the bass are limited to seeing certain colors and when there not. If one lure color isn't working change colors till the action happens. I change the style and depths of my lures too.

I like the bait ball but I wish they offered a brighter color for low light, stained water conditions.

Otherwise these are harder to buy lately.

I have had awesome success using crankbaits in all colors as per situation in all lighting conditions and water conditions. I do have some colors that preform better than the others but crankbaits in the past have preformed awesome for me. I probably throw more crankbaits than any other lure. I'm fishing from shore in some of the healthiest smaller bodies of water in the western part of my state.

I found all the smaller bodies of water while riding my motorcycle and dual sport bikes. I road for miles and pretty much found little unfished places that are accessible to fish legally. I enjoy trying different lures with different presentations.

Now I'm a color freak. I've read about Dr. Loren Hill results of his testing. He used different colored bait buckets on bass in the lab. He put the food in one colored bucket. The bass went to that one color. But didn't go to the other colors that had no food etc. This means bass see colors.

I've learned on a slow day when nothing is working to change up like a baseball pitcher and throw a color I wouldn't think of using. I put on a hot chartreuse. I caught a bass right off when no other color worked. Seeing this tells me the water condition I'm seeing at the surface isn't the same at the deeper depths. It can change as we go deeper. Don't stay with one color when it produces nothing.

I look at it as a challenge. Given the fish are there. Which I catch fish at each place I fish. But in different sizes I know the time of day to fish each spot I been fishing there for over a decade from shore now. Under different lighting conditions fish will move. It's a fact under darkness to low light there in open water or under thinner cover. In lighted sunny conditions there under cover. Keep in mind this rule isn't in cement. It's not a given all the time. I've seen big hogs swim by me going after my 7 1/4" bps stik o worm. In the sunlite. So expect the unexpected.

I know what to fish when just about. I do go through my ritual of lures and colors till one works.

My point is this new bait ball is up against some of the best crankbaits I have ever thrown. Time will tell. Right now I open up the package and they look great.

Again I'm no pro and never claim to be but I'm one serious shore fisherman. Fishing from shore is the hardest at times no one ever said fishing is easy. The more we stay focused and motivated the more success I have.

Do not tell your self I'm not going to catch anything before you get there. Stay thinking positive things like beating your PB. Or how many fish will I catch today.

I know one shallow spot we're the dinks up to one pounder are in the shallows all the time. I test my presentations there. I test my spinnerbaits setups there. I'm looking for that one big gal to be feeding there. But for now I practice. I can't wait to throw the bait ball there.

Remember a floating crankbait can be fished slowly so it will run at any depth. A faster speed it will run at its rated depth. A slower speed it will run shallower.

I think I'm up to 16 bait balls now. Every family member will test one for me. I have 8 for me.

This past episode of Fact of Fishing they were using the bait balls and were having great succes with them in the cold... Albeit they were the prototypes before they were for sale in the retail outlets. So obviously this episode even though new was filmed a while back. Good episode though.

  I saw that episode and after watching it felt like I watched a thirty minute commercial for this lure.  What's the difference between that episode and infomercials?  Nothing.
