Favorite Soft Bait Brand

21 posts in this topic

I saw the Saying on the Mister Twister Products that says "Americas Favorite Soft Baits" And I got to thinking... What is everyones favorite brand? Mine Would have to go to Berkely. Ive got more Berkley baits than anything else.

Its a toss up. If we are talking bass and a fat wallet, Yamamoto Baits for sure. If we were a little lower on the boards and in the walleye forum, it would be Berkley Gulp. Panfish, Berkley or Mr. Twister. I also like Zoom and Yum products. I really don't think I could have a favorite, but all around Berkley is probably at the top of the list.

Boy, tough question. I guess it depends on what I want to throw. I throw quite a bit of Mister Twister baits - Comidas, Finese worms, Tubos, RT Slugs. I always use Zoom chunks on the back of a jig. I have about a dozen different brands of ringworms. I still throw a lot of Super-Dos on a jig or Texas rigged. I guess it just depends on my mood and the fish's mood.

Grerat topic. Im in the same boat as Ray with the Mr. Twister. They make such great product, and for the money, its hard to not like them. Comidas, worms, tubes.

Mister Twister and Berkley are tops for me. However, I do love the Zoom lizards.

Love Yamamoto but usually use knock offs so in real life Zoom, followed by Lake Fork, then Berkley, then Netbait. Reaction Innovations is good too and love Culprit worms. Don't use Mr Twister or Gulp at all.

huh, I haven't been around fishing that long and not that it matters but I thought zoom got knocked off more than most. I thought they had a lot of sort of originals, trick worms, kind of flukes, brush hogs, toads...but maybe not. I think they are about the only company to not copy the senko.

anyways, for me its ZOOM, like the ultra vibe tails, and lots of colors, good shapes and good prices and can find them about anywhere. But also powerbait and gulp! are great too, but they seem to be changing shapes and shuffling styles in and out a lot so I don't use them often. But for rivers and smallies I love Gulp!

Recently got into Lake Fork Magic Shad... They WORK! For the most part I'm not partial to any one specific brand but I typically use Mr.Twister Exude comidas, Berkley 7 inch twister tail worms and 4.5 inch power tubes, Culprit 7.5 inch twister tail worms, Zoom Chuck jig trailers, and Reaction inovations sweet beaver creature baits. I think I'd try just about anything once. Most likely more than once if I find it works under some conditions. It does get to be a bit much though when you have a bag of plastics that your 3 year old son can't lift....

Manns Hardnose anything. Middle to low end on price very durable in my opinion. I use primarily the toads, soft jerkbaits, and tubes.

I have a lil bit of this and a lil bit of that. Berkley, Zoom, Yamamato would be my top choices, but I do have knockoffs and other brands.

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
