Just scored 15 bags of Lime-purple passion and 18 bags of sapphire blue. At least I'll get through this year.

I just ordered four packs of Lime Purple Passion from Academy if anyone is hunting some.  Free shipping at $25. The weird thing was they were advertised as 10 in a pack and 4 1/2". According to the SKU, they are 4". Academy is weird about marking stuff like that.  But I usually receive orders in two days from them.  Really only wanted that color for a trailer as I just ordered a bit of structure bugs and have a ton of d-bombs for pitching and punching.

I'm no fan of the slime and stink either. Please keep the Havoc line of the Pit Boss. I also use them heavily. I use them as trailers for just about everything.  

 

The scent may be objectionable (to some) but even when soaking wet (has been in the water a long time), I've never found Powerbait to be slimy at all.  Gulp, on the other hand, very much so.

Need to order some Mend-it too. I now regret all those baits I've tossed that still had a fish or two left in them.

I always thought they were great for the money.. but I wouldn't freak if they dissapeared..  d**n sure wouldn't go crazy about discontinued colors.. some of you guys need a nice deep breath.

Two of their colors that stand out compared to any other trailer on the market - Lime Purple Passion and Vampire Orange.  The Lime Purple Passion on a brown-purple jig were made for each other, and the Vampire Orange on a black or black-red jig looks killer.

I wasn't referring literally to it as a slimy substance. It and other scents I was just generally speaking of are not something I want to deal with.

Just grabbed 3 bags of 4" Skywalker and a bag of 3" Watermelon orange flake

21st time I've seen either one in store

Skywalker looks pretty sweet

The best flipping bait/colors around here. Caught a lot of fish and won a lot of money with them. Nothing imitates a bluegill like a lime-purple passion pit boss with the tail dipped in chartreuse and pitchedinto the willows. I've tried lots of others, nothing has come close. I'm going to keep buying them up while I can get them for normal price.

We all know confidence is key.. I'm sure if they stopped making them you'd still find your way into the money though..I'm a firm believer it's the fisherman , and timing , place , technique over style/color of bait. Not that style and color can't make a difference...

@Bluebasser86 :) was out of town and saw a Gander Mountain that looked like they were shutting it down permanently dang it was odd feeling there. Turned out they had 8 bags of  4"  Lime Purple Passion. The down side is I know why it was closing or dang near a ghost town. Their competition Academy 3 minutes down the road kicked their ass on everything. I paid $3.49 + tax on every bag. I felt horrible for all of 2 seconds. :hahaha-024:
