The Swimbait Craze was in full effect as new baits were showcased at the Sacramento ISE (continued)

River 2 Sea: River2Sea surprised us with some pre-release baits that were not at the previous San Mateo ISE show.  You guessed it... River2Sea swimabits! The new "Kong" Swimbait named after the immense ape himself is a dual segmented bait with protruding fins and a whole lot of them. Just about every fin on this bait sticks out like a real fish.  


Finally a jointed swimbait from R2S, the Kong has many protruding fins


The Kong comes in two patterns, a trout and a Perch. There are a lot of trout baits on the market, but a quality Perch pattern swimbait is certainly harder to find. The Perch pattern Kong was spectacular, and the prototype exhibited a quality matte finish on par with enthusiast import lures.


The Kong is availble in Perch pattern as well


Both Kong baits will be available soon in both floating and slow sinking styles, and will retail for a reasonable $29.99 per bait.

While not technically a swimbait, another oversized prototype caught our attention. The R2S Rover is a huge topwater stickbait. Designed for stripers, inshore fishing, and targeting peacock bass the Rover will retail for 24.99 each and also will be introduced to market in the next few months.
