Cool Story

Recommended Posts

Today I was fishing with a texas-rigged homeade worm that's identical to the Grandebass Rattlesnake in a larger size. I had it on a 3/0 hook and a 1/4 oz. weight.. Well I nicked a branch behind me and about 3/4 of my worm flew off. I had a stub left that was just about a little longer than the hook. Well, I took a look at it and thought, "man, that looks like a ned rig. Let's try it" Threw it out and caught a fish first cast, followed by about 4 more in the next 30 minutes. Abosolutely bar none the stupidest looking thing I've ever fished, but man I'm gonna keep fishing it!

Several weeks ago I was fishing a Rage Craw and catching fish on it.  After three or four fish a claw got ripped off.  So I pulled off the other to balance the bait, and went on to catch four more on the Rage Stump.  It worked great, don't be too quick to trash those old baits.

When I was very little, my brother and I were fishing with my dad at a pond for bass, our go-to bait (and pretty much the only thing we used) back then was a t-rigged 1/32-1/16oz tiny brush hog and dragging or swimming it. Ran out of baits and while my dad went back to the truck for more baits, my brother  and I started catching them on the weight and hook. 

 

I'm thinking that was probably a case of a "virgin fishery"

I seem to recall reading that, during tests, a well-known lure company found out that bass seemed to hit plastic crawdads that had no claws better than any other version of that lure.

 

Before they made it, however, marketing told them it wouldn't sell, so it remained a prototype.  As I understand, they put some of the technology into their plastic worms, though.

I have often thought that was why tubes can work so well, the bass just see them a defenseless prey item.

No need to tear off the one good claw.  Alot of crawdads have one claw or one very small claw.  My buddy will continue to throw a one claw bait and stil catch bass..
