I might've gotten one over on the bait monkey

Recommended Posts

Went valentines day shopping for the wife and had to visit the fishing section... Found a mess of spinnerbaits and jigs for a buck each. SCORE! (Paid regular price for the KVD Square Bill...)

I removed the pic because it was too big. Here is a link to it:

Dunno how good those bass magic swimbaits are, but they were marked down from 6, to $4, then to a dollar. Couldn't pass it up.  If it turns out they suck then I'll just give it to my kids to play with.

bass magic swimbaits are way better than berkely hollow bellys and miles ahead of those srtike king ones, and that color absolutely slays them where i live, only thing is I used the 3.5"

oh.. and score, indeed

If your relationship with the bait monkey is anything like mine, you never really beat the bait monkey. Every once in a while though, he'll give you back a little of what he's taken.  ;D

Think the Biat monkey got the best of me today. I was at a Thrift Shop on the local military installation where there were 4 separate Ziploc bags full of assorted Japanese made baits. Mustve been a service member just returning from overseas,thinning out their baits.

Most of the stuff is brand new and for what It cost me,I "think" I did ok.

If you boil those Bass Magic swimbaits for 30 seconds or so, they'll soften up a bit and have a little more action in the water. It'll also help to get rid of some the nasty chemical odor they have.

Where did you find this bargain. Forget about the wife.

Bass Magic swimbaits are identical to Strike King Shadalicious, except not the same colors. I love them both. My favorite pre-spawn bait for prowling spawning grounds and deeper water surrounding them. 4.5" has been magic for me. I boil them for 10 seconds. Tends to straighten them out, soften them up a little, and remove most of the plastic smell. Don't forget to dip the tails in JJ's Magic.

Thank you for that bit of info.  The smell is terrible.  I have no problem with stiffness, but stank almost turns me away.

You did GOOD! I have about a 100 of those Strike King jigs. When I find em on sale like you did, I will grab 20 or so. There are jigs I like better, but I will throw those SKs in the worst of thick cover and I don't care if I lose them. Caught a lot of fish on them.
