Whats the lure of 2007?

Recommended Posts

Since the Chatterbait seemed to be the lure of 2006, I got to wondering what lure will fly off the shelves in 2007.

Any predictions?

Swimbaits. As more people learn to use swimbaits in places other than California and more companies make good quality less expensive baits that are more suited to the rest of the country you will see more people throwing swimbaits in 2007. I also think glidebaits which most bass fishermen have never heard of will grow in popularity among bass fishermen. I don't think we will have anything close to the chatterbait craze though.

The "Chattering-Banjo- Shakey-Swimbait-Senko"

That's exactly what I was thinking.  ;D ;D

It will probably be an old bait that isn't used that much today if at all.

That very well could be Cotton Cordell's CC Rattlin Shad that's a good old lure that was hot on the pro tour sometime ago. That thing catches everything and I mean everything.

If one of the BASS pros admits to winning a tournament with the Fat Ika, I think this bait has the potential to be the next Senko. It already is for me.

RW, the Ika is maybe one of the only baits I have never experimented with. I have always found that tubes will do the job, but, I'm always open to new baits.

Can you, or have you, posted a thread on how you fish an Ika?

Will be anxiously waiting  ;).

IT IS THE DIGITALIZED-ULTRA SALTED-VIBRATING-WEEDLESS-SONIC SENKO WITH ON BOARD CAMERAS AND A BASS SLIME DETECTING DEVICE

I think Road Warrior and Raul have a few already

Dude,

Once you get to know RW you'll hear his mantra

It goes something like this.

If you fish a GLoomis GLX rod, with a shimano stella reel, using 6lb yo-zuri ultra soft with an x point hook stuck into a fat Ika, you are one smart guy. ;)

Now that's not EXACTLY the same as saying that if you don't fish a GLoomis GLX , with a shimano stella loaded with 6lb yo-zuri ultra soft with an xpoint hook and a fat ika, that you are a dummy, but it comes pretty close. 8-)

In all honesty, I think there are two things that will happen in 2007 as far as lures go. One I hope doesn't happen and the other probably will but I could care less.

I agree with Randall on swimbaits. A lot of people are starting to realize that swimbaits are big fish baits. And as he said with a lot of companies taking strides to produce cheaper, productive swimbaits that everyone can afford, they will probably take off in 2007. This is the one I could honestly care less about...seeing as I have very little interest in swimbaits for some odd reason...maybe I should have some interest.

The other one is the eventual discovery of the Fat Ika. I hope this one doesn't happen. Heck they are hard enough to find in stores as it is now. If word ever gets out on how good a fish catcher they are then you may as well just start ordering them online...and even online stocks may start drying up if it's popularity skyrockets.

From the makers of the unforgettable Helicopter Lure, comes The Harrier worm.

Slowly sinks to the bottom and then amazingly floats right back up.

or

The Kennedy Worm- For use on bridges. You launch it in and forget about it, if it doesn't work, it's ok, you don't have to pay for your mistake.

or

The Kennedy worm II- Oops, Tequila sunrise covers that one.

or

The fox news worm - Made of garbage and shoved down the fish's throat.

or

The Weather channel spinnerbaits - They are 3 bladed, 1/2 oz titanium baits. Or wait,....they could be tin,...hold on,...looks like they are going to have 4 blades....wait, it's not even a spinnerbait, it's a crankbait,....wait....

The Muddy Minnow- Looks like a meatball with 2 eyes. Comes with small packet of Ragu scent paste. Scares the fish onto the hook and if they don't jump on, it will cuff him in the head and say "Whatsamattawityou?  Get on this freaking hook if you know what's good for ya"

The Germantown Jerkbait- a "pointer" style bait. Body made of ivory, encrusted with 14 different precious gems from 1ct eyes to 4 ct fins. 14k gold hardware. Comes with bodygaurd for 1st 10 outtings.

Somebody stop me...

;)

Muddy Man I don' think so because if I recall that lure can only be cast with a Pflueger President.

Well there is a very slight chance you might see Bill Lowen use them.  I buy alot of tackle from a local tackle store that sponsers him and a couple shows on the outdoor channel.   Anyways they have a pro team given there not as popular as Bill Lowen and at that neither is he yet, but they all take turns when not fishing to work in the store.   I was getting some fat Ika's one day and one of the guys working said you actually catch fish with them.   Long story short after I told him how to rig them and fish them he was taking bags of various colors of them of the shelf for himself for a upcoming tourney.  Anyways these guys and Bill lowen all fish togather alot so there is a slight chance we might see him use them.   I gave credit to RW and BassResource.com

I was thinking about this a month or so ago and was going to put my vote in for the GYCB Flappin Hog but it has been discontinued.  So I guess my next vote is for the Swimming Senko.  If the swimming Senko falls through, my second is the Gambler Lizard.

And Dude,

Avid is funny  ;)
