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.

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
