Favorite Soft Bait Brand

Recommended Posts

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!

of course, i'm from iowa, so there is a little tall corn pride there for me.

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.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
