Cranking It Up with Spro's John Crew's Fat John 60
How many of you have tucked away in your tackle collection somewhere some of those big, fat, wood cranks from yester- year. Seems like these precious little baits become more difficult to find with each passing year. In fact, is anyone still making one?

Crank It Up! : Berkley Fishing's Comprehensive Dredger
Deep diving crankbaits of recent vintage have taken on a new profile as is witnessed by our L.O.U.S. (lures of unusual size) series. Berkley bucks that trend and goes in the opposite direction with a pint sized crankbait they've engineered to reach depths in excess of twenty five feet!

A Jig Worth More Than Just Flipping Out Over
Pre-ICAST 2017, social media was a-buzz with Mike Iaconelli supposedly flipping out for some mysterious reason. We now know the reveal was Missile Jigs's new Ike's Flip Out Jig. We managed to get our hands on some post-ICAST and have been fishing them off and on ever since. Here's a closer look at this new jig.
Stop, Wait a Minute.. Yes, that's Megabass's Funky Flipper
The Funky Flipper measures just over two inches in length but this bait's story begins with its over all teardrop shape that really resembles the vintage Griffon that's been sitting within a Plano box baking in the sun for several hours causing it to balloon up from the inside...
Bull Shad Swimbaits Enters the Rat Race
Like an infestation that circles around every three or four years, rat style baits seem to come back into vogue with good frequency. Bull Shad Swimbaits has made their mark with kind of nondescript, really plain, almost beat up looking baits that mimic shad, sunfish, herring and the like. Late last year, they jumped into the rat race too. We spent some time with the Bull Rat and the following is our review!

Reaction Innovation's New One Two Shiver Punch
The Shiver Shot is just over three and a half inches long soft plastic bait made in the general shape of a baitfish. The main body and head of the bait resemble the company's Skinny Dipper only with a flat, dolphin like spit tail rather than a paddletail.

What the Enthusiast? Keitech's Easy Shaker Worm
Keitech snuck onto the scene several years ago with their Swing Impact series of paddletail baits. One week, these baits were no where to be seen, and in no time, they became the paddletail of choice - especially at the height of the Bama-rig craze. But the company makes more than just soft bodied swimbaits...
From Crawler to Star, Cranking it Up with Spro's RkCrawler 55
Mike McClelland is well known as a jerkbait fisherman as is evidenced by the many variants of his McStick baits by Spro. But like many of us, he grew up throwing an old fashioned mid-depth running crankbait banging it against the bottom in about ten to twelve (10-12) feet of water searching for bass. A few years ago, McClelland convinced the folks at Spro to help him revive this genre of bait...
New Savage Gear 3D Minnow Wobbles for Walleye
Here at TT we joke about all the horrors that the Savage Gear 3D scanner has been subjected to as the company continues to crank out bait after bait based on scans of actual prey. The latest in the never-ending lineup of baits based on three dimensional scanning is a minnow style diving crankbait that is created specifically to target Walleye.
The Original Vision for Yuki Ito's RipBait : The Megabass Ito Shiner
A couple of years ago, the company unveiled a hard plastic version of a hand carved jerkbait Yuki Ito had in his personal tackle box. This forgotten bait actually served as the inspiration for the OneTen and now Megabass has done their best to replicate that bait as a production lure. Here now is our look at Megabass's Ito Shiner.

A New Specialty Bait from Roboworm : The Ned Worm
Soft plastic stick baits are in the midst of a revival thanks to the popularization of two weighting strategies to fish these baits. The strategies aren't really new per se, but have gained notoriety over the last few years. The most recent of these strategies involves fishing the stick baits on a specialized, mushroom shaped jig head. Yes, we are talking about the Ned Rig...

Taking Aim at the Ubiquitous Stick Bait, Missile Bait's New The 48 Worm
Inconspicuously missing from the Missle Bait's arsenal has been that do-nothing soft plastic stick bait so pervasive in other brands. That changed this past year at ICAST when Missile Jigs introduced their interpretation of this bait, The 48. Let's see how this bait stacks up.

 

 

Crank It Up: Megabass Eccentric X-Dad Crankbait
Several years ago, before their STW initiative took over a good part of the company's focus, Megabass debuted a funky little crankbait designed to mimic a crayfish. It is an eccentric little bait that only a company like Megabass can pull off. Here is our look at Megabass's X-Dad crankbait.
Spro's Mike McClelland McStick 95 Rip Bait
McClelland is a jerk bait fanatic so you know any bait with his name on it has to perform. Today, we take a look at a jerkbait built with a slightly smaller profile than usual and designed to be effective in highly pressured waters. Here's our take on Spro's Mike McClelland McStick 95.

Ready for Battle : Damiki's Knock Out
Where the Monster Miki was long, thin, and crazy with appendages, Damiki's Knock Out is a much chunkier piece of soft plastic with four arms, claws, antennae and ears? It's body is similar to a beaver style bait, but the rest of it is all creature.

Reaction Innovation's New Pocket Rocket
Reaction Innovations, a company known just as much for their provocative packaging, and bait and color names, as well as their actual product has a new plastic worm made for those who like to get a little wacky with their rigging. Introducing the Reaction Innovations new Pocket Rocket soft plastic worm.

Seaspin USA's Intriguing Little Geko Jig
Seaspin USA's Geko Jig is available with either a ball head or a bullet head configuration. The skirts are a mix of living rubber and silicone depending on the color pattern you choose, but the intriguing aspect of this jig is the hook is not molded through the weighted head.

Better Late Than Never : Lucky Craft's Pointer Minnow
As popular and effective a jerk/rip bait as the Vision OneTen is, one bait suspends shoulder to shoulder with that bait on the rod tips of the TackleTour Editorial Staff. That bait is Lucky Craft's Pointer Minnow. This is the first jerkbait I had ever seen Zander tie on, toss out, and rip back. In fact, he had never handled a Vision OneTen until I gave him one back in 2005...

Creature Fever : Strike King's Rage Twin Tail Menace Grub
With today's seemingly unlimited choices in specialized plastic baits, one old staple seems to have fallen by the wayside. How many of you still fish the old staple single or double tail grubs? Maybe they've fallen out of popular discussion because there's really not much to them. Well, Strike King introduced a new interpretation a little while back and we're here to take a closer look.
Spro's New Dean Rojas Bronzeye Spit Shad
Back in 2013, we reviewed a new bait from Spro representing yet another variation on the popular hollow bodied frog. It was their Bronzeye Shad 65 - a bait that's super easy to walk. Today, we take a look at a variation in that same bait with the incorporation of a cupped mouth. Introducing our look at the Spro, Dean Rojas Bronzeye Spit Shad 60.
OSPs Transformational Yamato Walking Bait
OSP is a manufacturer that has skirted the line of popular mainstream baits, but those who pay attention know about their quality, and sometimes hard to get baits like the Blitz, Rudra, and Asura. Today, we take a look at OSP's entry into our TWB themed week with the dual personality Yamato.
A Finesse Walker : ima's Skimmer
When we think of topwater walking baits, the prototype that comes to mind is Heddon's Zara Spook, a four and a half inch (4.5") bait shaped like a cigar. Bait manufacturing company, ima's interpretation of this genre is much more slender and in many respects the Skimmer is literally a stick bait.
Return of the Vixen by Reaction Innovations
For years, Reaction Innovation's Vixen topwater walking bait was coveted for its easy walking, far casting, fish catching ability. But several years ago, for some unexplained reason, it disappeared from store shelves and was out of production. Then, a couple years ago, like Merle Dixon, the Vixen resurrected.
The Walking Baits: Selecting the Right Rod, Reel, and Line for Your Walker Arsenal
While having the right bait is certainly a key part of the battle selecting the right reel, rod and line can also make it easier to impart that zig-zag action that is essential to draw those explosive strikes.
The Walking Baits: Top 5 Walk-The-Dog Picks
There are a lot of topwater hardbait options, poppers, chuggers, propbaits, twitch baits, wakebaits, and walkers. Even if you just focus on topwater walk-the-dog hardbaits there are over fifty different choices alone! There are lot of good choices and today we pick our top five most productive topwater walkers that we utilize in the majority of our topwater reel and rod field tests.
A Diamante in the Rough? Megabass's Latest STW Achievement
In January, we shared with you the first official bait from Megabass's Support to Win (STW) initiative, the S-Crank. Today, we take a look at another bait from this program that the company's prostaff was very adamant about during our factory tour back in 2013. It's taken that long for this bait to make its way to market, but here now is our look at Megabass of America's Dog-X Diamante topwater bait.
Sometimes Smaller Really is Better: The Gantarel Jr. Swimbait
To expand on their original bait the company has now introduced two new versions, the larger and appropriately named Gigantarel and downsized Gantarel Jr. swimbaits. We take a look at both new baits with a focus on the smallest bait in the series to see if this “gill” really has a place in the tackle box.
Squeak, Squawk, Clank - Picasso's Din-R-Bell
In an earlier review, we took a look at Picasso's Buzz Saw double bladed buzzbait. The product scored very well and I had good success with it, but in the words of wise Yoda, there is another. Picasso double dips their double bladed buzzsaw offering with a second product built to cause a little more commotion.
Doomsday Tackle Co's Not So Grim Reaper 3.2
There are countless manufacturers in the fishing tackle industry selling soft plastic baits. Many of these baits are barely distinguishable from one another, many more are unique. One bait profile that continues to be reinvented is the craw-creature trailer style baits. One company, new to us, debuted their take on this staple early in 2016. Here now is our take on Doomsday Tackle's Reaper trailer bait.
Creature Fever : Big Bite Bait's Russ Lane Real Deal Craw
A couple years ago, Elite Series Pro Russ Lane showed me a bait he was working on for Big Bite Baits that kind of skirts the line between ultra-realistic and not. We had to keep it under wraps until they were ready to bring it out, and somehow in the interim we missed the announcement. Well, better late than never. Here now is our look at Big Bite Bait's Russ Lane Real Deal Craw.
A Mid-Depth Crank with Built In Erratic Behavior : Spro's Little John Baby DD
Several years ago, Zander took it upon himself to dissect a new, up and coming bait by Spro, the Little John DD. It's a deep diving crank designed to reach depths of up to twenty feet (20'). A few years after the successful introduction of that bait, the designers at Spro, together with John Crews himself went to work on a smaller, shallower running version of this same bait - the subject of today's review.
The KJ Flat Silent - But Lethal Crank from Lucky Craft
One of the best search baits you can use is a crank, so to have a crank that excels in these situations is something every bass angler needs. BASS Elite Series angler, Kelly Jordan recognizes this need and together with Lucky Craft, designed a bait for just this situation. Here's our look at the KJ Flat Silent Crankbait by Lucky Craft.
Going Big with Missile Baits's Tomahawk 8.75
Before there were big swimbaits, there was the big, soft plastic worm. Anglers looking to up their weights often relied upon these larger worms as a way to cull through the smaller, feistier fish and entice the bigger ones to bite. Missile Baits has a product to help you lock on target for those bigger bites. It is their Tomahawk, an eight and three quarter inch (8.75") twin tail worm.
A Bait that Defies Categorization : Megabass of America's Vatalion
Swimbaits, crankbaits, jerkbaits, topwater... every now and then you come across a bait that defies categorization. The first thing I thought when I laid eyes on Megabass of America's new Vatalion was "oh cool, Megabass has finally come out with a panfish shaped glide bait." It's a two piece, hard bodied bait in the shape of a bluegill so naturally, this is what it is, right? Nope.

A Frog by Any Other Name Would Fight as Hard
It's a pretty well known fact that the favorite bait of BASS Elite Series angler Dean Rojas is the frog. Case in point? With no less than six (6) topwater frog baits to his name you can bet a good percentage of the time when asked, "Hey Dean, what did you catch them on?" that the answer will be "a frog!"

BullShad Swimbaits Extends Their Lineup : The BullGill
With everything from a new rat to herring to a wake bait and more, we have a lot of catching up to do with BullShad Swimbaits and today we start that journey with a look at a bait that takes the company's namesake and changes it up oh so naturally. Here's out look at BullShad Swimbat's BullGill.
