I'm So Pumped Up!

Recommended Posts

I just bought a NIB Wake Jr for a very *reasonable* price! Kinda got sick of everyone talking about 316 hardbaits like the best thing to have happened to the world since sliced bread. So I gave in lol.

Got the bait today. This thing looks absolutely sick!

It's pretty big too... pictured with Matt's hardgill (love the 'gill).

Some of my "cheaper" baits... (they work just fine though)

That is a good looking bait but if a M.S. Slammer is among the "cheaper" baits I'd hate to know how much that one costs!

Good luck! I have a baby bass wake jr sitting here for over a month that I'm waiting to use still! It's hard to put down the topwater frogs right now.

Let's just say it costs more than the rod I'll be throwing it on... It also cost me less than what I spent on booze last month; I keep track of unnecessary expenses.

BUT, I don't intend to lose that bait, ever. It's a floating bait. I've gone swimming several times for lucky crafts etc, and have had to dive once to rescue the hard-gill you see; it's a slow-sinker.

And, if there's one thing I've learnt about 316 hardbaits, it's that you can always get your money back by selling it. I can probably even make a little money if I sell it on ebay.

I was looking for a 9" slammer, and couldn't find one used. So I thought what the heck, and pulled the trigger.

About "cheaper" baits; it's supposed to be a joke. I'll say this much; the 20$ BBZ you see has caught me more and better fish than the other baits put together...

P.S. The joys of being young, single, and dumb :)

I have the same wake Jr, a few baby wakes and a few freestyles. I will say this... out of all the 3:16 baits I have, the wake Jr and the mission fish have performed the best for me. IMO must haves. They are all beautiful baits, true works of art. But the wake jr at this point, is the only 3:16 bait I would throw that kind of money at again. When it comes to the others, I have had way better results using much cheaper baits. Just like deep the BBZ 1 is one of my top performers when it comes to hard baits.

That's good to hear because I just bought one of those about a month ago, hoping to come across the right conditions to toss it this fall.
