Northern California's Inaugural Bass Tackle Event : BassJam 2009 (pt. 1) (continued)

22nd Century Baits: Partnering with bass fishing apparel maker, Bassaholics, 22nd Century was on hand with their usual cache of coveted triple trout baits, but to our surprise, they also had a new bait to show us. Victor Fong showed us the new “Stubby,” a beefed up version of the Triple Trout with a wider and taller body, big eyes, and the same, two joint construction. The Stubby is available in at least two sizes, an eight inch version for $65 and a four inch version for $45.

Top Shelf Tackle: Coming down out of Oregon, Rick Correa of Top Shelf Tackle was on hand to show us his line of 100% hand poured baits. The Original Top Shelf Bait and larger sized Magnum are line-through baits with a nickel plated internal harness to prevent discoloration of the soft plastic in the bait. They are weighted more heavily than your typical line through baits to ensure the bait stays down at any speed retrieve. Each of these baits are supplied with an Owner brand treble hook and range in price from $11.99 on up to $19.99 depending upon the size.

Rick Correa demonstrates the durability of his paddletail product

Rick was excited to show us his version of the hollow bellied paddletail bait currently available in a 4” size at $12 a 4 pack and poured from a super durable plastic that is as soft as you’d expect from a hand pour product, yet has the durability of the more mass produced baits. More importantly, despite this durability, the Top Shelf Paddletail will last through several catches making slightly higher price pay dividends in the long run.
