Don Meissner Hydra Lure

Recommended Posts

i saw the commercial on tv about Don Meissner's hydra lure. it looked very effective in the commercial, but it was only a commerical after all.

to all of the people thats used or bought this, was it effective? is it worth buying?

There is little doubt that it will catch fish. But what do you have to buy? I'm always leery of having to purchase a "fishing system", as opposed to a lure.

Nope. I am with Marty here. I have never puchased a lure or "fishing system" I have seen on a TV commercial. Most of the time those lures are all talk a big game while having no game at all. There are plenty of lures out there that I can spend my money on that are proven to work instead of spending my money on "as seen on TV lures" and having to flush them, and the money I spent on 'em, down the toilet.  ::D

I have puchased other fishing systems that do work, the hydra lure is a old lure. I havent tryed it out, but it not new.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA wow am i the only one who fell into this? lol.well let me tell you,NO!! ive made at least 100 casts with this thing in areas that i regularly catch bass in atleast 1 every 10 minutes.and you wanna know what ive caught??? NOTHING. they are very cheaply made.if i were to rate the action from 1 to 10(1 being"is that a stick in the water?" and 10 being "is that my lure or a real fish?")it would be a solid 2.5   .lol. tight lines!!

I figured if I got these and one of the instant fisherman foldup rods the bass wouldn't stand a chance :D

Way back when, I used to buy differnt lures just to see how they swam and to lear their dynamics. I bought the hydro lures on ebay probably 8-10years ago. When I got them I pool tested them and I thought there were bad. I even fished them a little and then I thought they were worse. Todays paddletails like the original basstrix are Sooooo much better. More realistic, better action, better finishes, and better design. plus you only have to buy 1 pack to try them out instead of the whole system.

Stay away from it....The action ain't as good as they say it is.

I still have them,to remind me to never buy anything gimmicky while drinking and playing online.

It's a waste of money.
