Whats going to be the hot bait for 2004?

Recommended Posts

What is going to be the hot bait for 2004? I think the new Grappler Shads from Cotton Cordell are looking sweet. They seem to be pumping them pretty hard in their advertising. Or how about Lindy's Max Gap Jig heads with bleeding hooks and Tequni-Glow, they look deadly. The fish don't have a chance. My tackle order is coming tomorrow, should be fun to see all the new baits.

Yepper, I'm gonna snag a few dozen of those Lindy jigs you mention, they look great and openwater on the Rainy is right around the corner for me to give them a shakedown. My special hand tied spinner rigs will be the #1 producer of Walleyes for me again this year on LOTW though!

My hot bait this spring I am sure will be Ring-n-Grubs pitched to those shallow water eyes or jigged along current breaks.Last fall these plastics out produced any other plastic bait for walleyes for me.They also took quite a few smallies.

These are not really "new", but the Original line from Storm will be big this year. All made from the original molds with original colors...The thunderstics ahve one-piece molding as does the wiggle wart. The hot-n-tot even has a metal lip again!

Other new products besides those already mentioned are the Boo-Yah line of spinnerbaits, Calcutta Lures which are another line of plastic swim-baits, and Storm has some new swim-baits as well.

Come on open water!!!

It'll be the Johnny Craw jig of course. Hand tied by yours truely. Works well on monster smallies, slab crappies and trophy stream trout. Never need to tip 'em. Just cast 'em out and swim 'em back.

Another vote here for Ring-n-Grubs. I havn't tried em yet, but I think like a fish and know they will be my go-to lure this year!

I like the 1.5 inch Kick-n-Craw, they are going to be great for crappies and gills in the spring! And the 3 and 4.5 inchers are going to be hot for smallies and buckmouths as well smile.gif

And then you can't go wrong with the Rattlin Rap for several species.

Good Fishin,

Those Grappler Shads are great. I used them last year, and had excellent luck. They run true out of the box, can get down to 16' trolled, and can take a pretty good beating. They expanded the color line to 24 colors this year. Can't beat the proce of these babies either... $3.99.

I think the glass raps will be pretty popular this summer as well.

Kick N Craws and All Terrain Tubes. Unless Corey Guttenfelder starts selling his panfish jigs and maribou's.

I think my hot bait this year will be night-crawlers and minnows, like it is every year. These two choices are just as effective as any fancy new "lure," if not more so. "When in doubt, pull a crawler out!"

I am thrilled with Bio-Bait!
It just rocks... and will be big for tipping plastics.
I think it is very handy.

New from Scenic Tackle this year will be a new bass spinnerbait called the angel eye spinnerbait, heavier than average wire plus custom skirts and the usual awesome scenic tackle paint should make this one hard to beat. Also from the scenic tackle lineup is the new rock-n-roll jigs and theres a hint of a new line of jigging blades, those I know are going to be hot for the river jiggers amongst us, Maybe Jeff could expand on this a bit??

    • So did Minnesota!  24,060 troops if I remember the number right.   This is where General Lee threw in the towel on July 4th.  This 24 mile road tour is pretty amazing.  Glad I stopped.   Just a shot to the left of the High Water Mark.
    • papa C brought 2 chicks by
    • @leech~~   My buddy Abe has a lot hair but was nice enough to try the hat at Gettysburg.  
    • And after Oakland its the Yankees! After this Mets series they must have a thing for being intimidated by NY logos on hats.   Wish we could get Buxton back but looks like he will be out for a bit now. I think he brings a lot of energy in the field and on the basepaths. Would like to see him pick it up at the plate more but he certainly brings an edge to the team that I think the other players feed off of.   Early on the team was deep and with a big division lead you could afford to shuffle out players and let the starters rest and heal. And those players were all stepping up. Now the lead is almost gone and injuries are piling up.   Lots of errors and un-earned runs have been ugly lately. We have seen Baldelli stay pretty composed so far this year. I will be curious to see what will cause him to snap or how he will handle all of this from a managing aspect.    Still a lot of games left which I am not sure if that is good or bad lol. I hope they make some moves but also dont want them to give anything up.
    • Yeah, with Oakland in town & on a roll, it could be a long weekend.
    • Does anybody have any experience with Wirelessbuy Unlimited Hotspot Mobile for internet service? I remember seeing it mentioned here a while back, but can't find the post.  I live in a rural area and my only options for internet are pretty much satellite or cell service. Two years ago, Verizon flat out lied about their home internet service to get me to sign up, my contract is finally up.  Is WirelessBuy Mobile actually unlimited Hotspot, meaning there is no data caps, no throttling, etc? This would be hooked up to my router and used as whole home internet. Maybe someone has a better recommendation?
    • Certainly looks like more  of a Saltwater feature, what with requiring an external add on device.
