Default New baits for this year

What new baits are you going to use for the first time this year? I am going to try out the Rage Tail Structure Bugs, a S-Waver swim bait. I also am going to try out a War Eagle buzz bait. I got some new colors of my favorite crank, Strike King Red Eyes. Was going to go up to my cabin this weekend but it's going to be in the 40's during the day and 30's at night with possible snow. I think I'll wait a couple of weeks before going. i am itching to try out my new baits.

I got several of the NU-JIGS and am using those for the first time. Plus a new craw bait to use as a jig trailer. The Wave Worm Tiki Crawdude. Other than that, nothing new. But I have a jointed Creek Chub Pike Minnow that I worked on to refashion the diving lip so that it runs like a wake bait. Can't wait to give that a try.

I wish I could chime in ... but I can't. I probably won't be trying anything new.

The s waver 168 is a glide swimbait and they will hit it as well as a 3d savage gear,or a morone candy bar 6 in swimbait rather flat but they love kokanee salmon in ky lake.

I got in some baits from Thailand that are called Jumping Frogs. Thinking I might get about 30 next year to sell at shows if they work out.. They look like this..


I have ten in three colors. The colors really do not matter..
They do not have time to know what color it is with this bait.

Also I am considering buying a chatterbait.. not buying yet just considering.

Hey Mike. Can you give us the length/weight? What kind of tackle is that designed for? Is it a fly rod lure or a larger version?

It is 4.5 inches long and weighs 10.5 to 11 grams.
Castable on a baitcaster for sure.
I plan to use a spinning rod.

Bose ZZ Walker
NuTech SpinJig Spinnerbaits Been using their jigs for a long time with great success so Bo and Chane convinced me to give it a try. ( I'm not a spinner guy but everyone BUT me has good luck with them)
Havoc Money Maker...got it for wacky rigging but WAY to light!
Brandon uses it for drop shotting...so I'll give THAT a try but I'm thinking of T-Wacky Rigging it? (Gammy 1/0 1/8oz. G-Finesse jig,,,'Wacky Head')

Mike, I figured you'd get the 7seas Snake Head Frog.

I really like the double frog hook idea.
Is it more of a walker or more of a popper?
Snake Head looks like a walker and the frog looks like a popper?

Really looking forward to your reviews!!!!!
I just maybe your first sale.
