Introduction: Day 2 of the BassJam afforded us more time to explore the future home of Outdoor Proshops and MonsterFishingTackle.com, we arrived bright and early to the event and the stars were out early. They included the likes of Skeet Reese, Gary Dobyns, Ish Monroe, Matt Newman, Kent Brown, Bub Tosh, Randy Pringle, and more.

Lucky Craft: Over at the Lucky Craft booth we noticed the trend of bigger is better. Not really available at the show, but available to check out was their new Exotic Predator Game (EPG) pointer series. We saw these baits at ICAST 2009, but they were worth another look. Available in 170, 180, and 200mm sizes, these baits are intended for big fresh and saltwater game. The bait that had Zander frothing at the mouth? The EPG LL Pointer 200 – essentially a lipless pointer with a true big bait profile, but presented in one solid piece. Retail on this bait is $19.99..
Continuing in the bigger is better theme is the Skeet Reese Redemption Spinnerbait soon to be available in five eights, three quarters, and one ounce sizes. These baits will be available at the beginning of 2010.

Roboworm: To the right from the Lucky Craft products at his booth Roy then showed us what’s up with Roboworm who moved two previously released, limited edition colors, into full production mode, but then backed it up with a brand new to everyone color in “Pumpkin Punisher”.
