Hot Secret Local Baits

Recommended Posts

I know everyone has small local companies in their area that produces lures and locally they are the hot bait, but nationally hardly anyone has ever heard of them.  I just curious what these baits are for you guys.  For me, I grew up in Hampton Raods, Virginia and there's a guy that makes homemade soft plastics, His business is called "Worminator", and I just moved back from the Atlanta area, and I caught a ton of bass on a jig made near Marietta called a Spanky jig.  Which reminds me if anyone knows how I can get some Spanky Jigs ordered online, please let me know.  Thanks!

there is a company around here called et baits that has some good soft plastics...a friend of mine knows the owner of the the company and says if you get in good with him you can get some stuff made that is softer than normal or vice versa...i like plastics that are good and soft for some reason...the fish seem to like them better and i think it changes the action a bit on some of the baits...the et string bean works good as a shakey head worm...its kinda like a long skinny senko

There's a local company called Hawghead that a guy named Rick Anderson (some of you might know him) runs, they make some pretty decent stuff. He just won $5000 in a tournament using one of his senko knock-offs so his stuff definitely works.

Case makes some nice baits. I am not sure if they are just local or a small national company. They make a great wacky rigging tool.

The 4" frog from The Wright Bait Company, as well as the 5" Salty Slugs are fantastic baits.  In fact, the 5" Salty Slug does better for me than the Senko.

In Florida a hot name is D.O.A., intended for saltwater but many of us use it for freshwater and does a great job.

That D.O.A shrimp has been my ticket for speckled trout lately, haven't tried it for bass though

I have been catching specks on D.O.A. shrimp for years.
