A Few Random Lure Reviews

Recommended Posts

Over the past few weeks, I have used a few lures for the first time.  Below is my amateur, non-endorsed quick reviews of each, please feel free to add your comments as well:

 

Lake Fork Worm - Catt recommended these are the best match to the old Rebel Ringworm & I agree.  Tough worm, but not stiff, great action in the water & great results.
 

Deps Buzzjet Jr - My initial reaction to seeing this bait in the water was that it makes such a ruckus, it just might scare the bass enough that they would jump in your boat to get away from the lure.  Then I had a fish blow up on it.  Caught a couple, it works much better than I anticipated.

 

Eagle Claw Pro V finesse Ned Jigs - I liked the looks of the keeper, they do a good job of keeping the bait in place without it bunching (eliminating the need to glue it to the head).  However, the heads break loose from the hook after a few casts, not enough to completely come off, just enough to wiggle around & bother me.

 

Missile Baits Ned Bomb - The flat tail & ribbed body caught my eye, looks okay in the water.  Didn't out fish a TRD, but it caught fish.

 

Live Target Twitch Minnow - Very realistic looking fluke style bait, skips well and caught fish.  A bit pricey per bait, but can be repaired with Mend-it to extend the life.
 

Jerkit Soft Plastic jerkbait - A takeoff on the Slug-go, the 4" is a great bait for skipping docks in fairly calm weather.  I rigged it weightless with a Gama Skip gap hook and caught 29 with it yesterday.  Made by a small local SoCal bait company.
 

Lake Fork Hissy Fit - A takeoff on the Jitterbug, the same head with a soft plastic trailer on the back to make it look like a snake.  Looked great in the water, but didn't get a strike on it.  May be more effective in more snake infested waters.

I like the full sized version much better than the Jr. They're very finicky about what speed you can fish them and keep them on the surface, but the full size makes it a little easier. Fish really do crush the bait when they're on it though and it can be really fun to fish.
