Right on.  Reminds me of the Wave Worms Tiki Bamboo stick from years ago.

I got a pile of tiki's from a friend years ago who had to to quit fishing for health issues and I've only used a couple of them, they ain't got that booty shake on the drop that the senkos have, none at all actually, they just glide, no wiggle, at least the few I tried were like that.

Got a vintage Daiwa travel spinning and a tackle box in CL and then drove to a fishing show called bart hall fishing show ad got some line and some minnow for trout and maps and info mostly for CA fishing points. Great day so far.

Putzing around on Omnia the other night looking up different brands I've never heard of. Came across these squarebills and medium-diving cranks from a company called Bay Rat Lures. Made in the USA, hand-painted. Eyes are 3D, not painted. Reg. $11.50, marked way down to $2.99. 

 

I couldn't find much info on them on the web. Some deep digging I found a few reviews that had good things to say about them, so I figured for that price, why not?

 

The squarebills are silent and the divers have a small rattle.

My name is Kevin Smira. It pains me to say that I was only able to stay clean and sober (not buying any actual baits) for 25 days. Went down to smith lake (north Alabama) this am and had to stop in a local tackle shop to ask what’s selling and what’s biting. As many of you know, I didn’t have ANYTHING he said to use. So, I was FORCED to buy some. Grabbed a few crankbaits (KVD, SPRO, 6th Sense), a MB dynablade, some hover jig heads and gambler small presentation (can’t remember what they are), some more chatterspikes and some more spunk shad. 

I have some reading up to do on the hover rig, as I’ve never fished it. But the guy said he keeps selling out of 3/0 1/8oz heads. So, I got some and now have to figure that part out.

 

and, I think since I wasn’t able to stay sober, I guess I’ll HAVE to spend a few gift cards I have to TW?

25 days ain't nothing to sneeze at. Hold your head high, young man!

 

BTW, did the guy behind the counter at the tackle shop look like....THIS??!

@Smirak If they were Keitech heads, I might know who’s been buying all of them - and lots of Jackall Drift Frys.😂

Cool. I put more in my cart this morning but figured I'd give it until tonight or tomorrow before I placed the order. Wanted to give you guys here a chance. Did you take the last 2 Bluegill MD? And a Real Craw squarebill? It's showing those out of stock now when I looked in my cart. 😄

@NorthernBasser You gonna be alright without those 5 cranks? 🤣

 

@Smirak You might want to look up this guy & see if you’re both hittin the same bait shop (click either the top title or small arrow in upper right corner of box - just 1 page back) 😂

25 days. That's some willpower! I can't make it 25 hours.

They say some lures catch fish and others catch fishermen. This color definitely caught me and I'm fine with it even if it never catches anything. 😆

Been wanting this one for a while and couldn't pass it up at 20% off.

And a few more baits to round it out...
