WTB “the babe” swimbait

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has one or a couple extra “the babe” swimbaits?

Ideally pre-rigged and in “the natural” or “rynolicous” color.

 

I’m willing to pay at least $20 each so you can easily replace them once they are back in stock and have some change left over.

Have you tried the pre-rigged Boom Boom swimbaits by Optimum? Not quite as much wag but other than that they seemed pretty similar to me.

I have not. I really like the head motion of the babe, but I do t know anything about the optimum.

That’s cool! I’m pretty sure takahiro Omari won an elite tournament last year using the an old discontinued bass pro shop swim bait. I thought he would market off of it but he never did.

There is an article about how he and another guy bought hundreds of them when they were on clearance at BPS in TX or something.

(Maybe this thread should be moved??)

 

Picked up some Boom Booms in sunfish, crappie and hitch color.

 

3rd cast I had the biggest fish I have ever seen in that lake (easily 6+ lbs) follow a sunfish color up to the bank and strike it right before it left the water, but did not get the hook 😮. I threw the bait around a bit more and also threw the crappie and hitch colors for about a half hour longer from the bank and didn’t have any other followers...

 

Now I’ve got all kinds of “what-ifs”.

 

What if...

 

... my retrieve would have been different

... I had been throwing a different color first

... I had been throwing “The Babe” instead

... etc etc blah blah 

 

I know the “what ifs” are unanswerable so are moot.

 

Nonetheless, since this giant followed on my 3rd cast, I think I was the one that got hooked by big swimbaits.

I saw Ben Milliken using them on his YouTube channel, and I wanted to get some. It looks like they're now unavailable. Now I'm sad.
