I bet it was in that 48min video he posted about this bait a few weeks back.   I couldn't do 48mins for a bait I didn't own at the time 😁

 

The guy I won it from has really cool big swimbait footage on his channel where he trolls them in front of one of those underwater cams meant for it.  He did a recent one on this bait and it was blowing out.   He gets fish catches on KGB glides on it which is how I found his stuff.     

 

Interested to see how you like the Hangover. Personally I thought it was one of the worst swimbaits I have ever used and will probably junk it. Make sure to give it a good whiff as well.

I wanted to try a smaller Ned setup, those larvaz don’t weigh anything and finding a hook that fits them is not easy either. I have been wanting to find more colors of the evo chatter bait and I did, so I grabbed a couple.

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.

Haha.  I got sucked into that last winter too with the Viper Tiger pattern.

 

I was catching smallmouth on a perch pattern pretty regularly last October so I gave the Viper Tiger pattern a try for 30 minutes.  They wouldn't touch it.  Went back to the perch and started catching fish again.

When you guys order from TW, who usually delivers your good? From day 1, a number of years ago, they have always used UPS. Well, for me at least. I notice the order I placed a few days ago is coming via FedEx, which I have had TERRIBLE luck with. Always arriving later than scheduled. Always a delay.

And if you live in a city, they just chuck it near your apartment's address.  I have great neighbors, but not everyone on the sidewalk is a neighbor.  Definitely my least favorite shipping company.  Now, I only let them deliver to a business affiliate and go pick it up.  My TW has always been UPS in the past as well.  Best of luck!

Always UPS from Tackle Warehouse. UPS is my preferred shipping company.

@NorthernBasser when I have ordered from TW the gear has been sent UPS....other tackle/bait companies seem to vary their carrier from USPS to FEDEx to Speedie Delivery......FEDEx has been a negative for me as well with a number of packages left at the front door in rough shape (one was missing more than 50% of the contents due to the top and one side of the box having been torn open)......hoping that you get all of your gear on time and in one piece !!

GLS in California and almost always overnight delivery. Ups or FedEx if something has to ship from the east Coast warehouse

Yeah, I really hope this isn't gonna be the new norm. Issues with FedEx is widely documented. It's amazing they can't seem to figure things out. Not to mention employ more respectable delivery drivers. I'm sure using them is cheaper than going with UPS. Omnia used them I know.

 

Delay is one thing. But I'm more worried because I have rods coming.

Scored a lot of unopened Japanese Shad red eye shad on eBay for about 5$ a pop.  I LOVE ghost lipless colors and these look like shiners and mosquito fish that you see loaded in the ponds here.

Why does Strike King discontinue their best colors????

these wake baits

 

Those bright colors SCREAM pike assault at me.  Its gonna be like a giant magnet in the water and every single snot rocket is gonna come darting in like a missile to either 1) remove the paint, or 2) bite you off completely.

 

The trebles look good though.  They appear to be pretty stiff.  Maybe that'll help some.

Haha I always mentally prepare myself for losing baits to those dang things. Strangely, when I catch big pike they usually just grab the bait without getting the line all in their mouth/teeth. But the little guys just can't help themselves. 

 

These bright chartreuse topwaters work great for me on some of my smallie lakes. And in dirty water for LM. Usually tho, black and bone are my 2 favorite topwater/wakebait colors.

I wanted to get the larva z Ned baits out there a little ways further, local shop had a rod that interested me. Daiwa tatula xt 6’4 ul rated 1/64-1/8 oz so I figured why not. Considering the heads that fit the larva z are 1/32 and the plastic doesn’t weigh much. Also got a couple extra things and fondled a NRX+ 894 jwr, I think that I am going to order a 895 jwr I have wanted to try one for heavier cover and presentations.

What'd you get???

Mostly "consumables" in additional trailer colors or colors missing during Xmas sales. Took advantage of 2 different sales, one being TW.

 

From TW:

3 SK Rage Menace Grubs, 5 Rage Craw & 1 Rage Bug, 5 FAT Swing Impacts, 5 HF Spunk Shads, 2 Greenfish Tackle High Class Blade double CO spinnerbaits, 2 Mini Max & 1 Jackhammer chatterbaits.

 

From elsewhere:

4 Cumberland Pro night spinnerbaits, 2 FAT Swings & 2 shorter prop baits for SMB trip to CA.

 

Found a local split tail trailer manufacturer recently so there might be a small order from them.

Is that the $99.99 American Tat XT? You got a sleeve with it??

 

I grabbed one last year to mess with (7'1 MH). They're really nice for a $100 stick!

Anybody ever fish them?

Nope but I saw Jimmy Houston fish them once, last year on his show, on his lake of course. He caught some fish but never saw him break them out again. Definitely a unique shaped waker.

Yes that’s the one, I was impressed with it for the price. I have heard nothing but good things about them, so I figured that I would try one.
