Storm lures have grown in popularity in a big way over the last few seasons. A robust revamped product line, strong retail presence, and creative products at reasonable prices all have contributed to the brand's success. For the 2007 season Storm is introducing a slew of new baits that continue the brand's tradition for lifelike appearance and realistic swimming action.   


Big Bass Square

Big Bass® and Big Bass® Square: The Big Bass Square features a flat front lip to deflect off rocks and timber. “Many anglers have discovered the adrenaline rush of hooking on to a big hawg,” said Mark Fisher, Storm director of field promotions and fishing pro. “The new Big Bass series is sure to become their go-to lure when they’re looking for that adrenaline fix.” With a diving depth of 6 to 8 feet, it’s perfect for casting into shallow cover. The standard Big Bass features a round lip that gets it down quickly to a depth of 10 to 12 feet. It’s designed for working flats with small stumps and rocks. Suggested retail price: $5.99




ScatBack: This water-logged bug has a quick searching action and an internal rattle that is designed to target trout and panfish. The Scatback has a swimming depth of 1 to 3 feet. “No matter how long you’ve fished, or how many lunkers you’ve caught, hooking a nice bluegill or crappie on ultralight gear is still a thrill,” said Mark Fisher, Storm director of field promotions and fishing pro. “For trout anglers, the ScatBack will prove to be a valuable addition to your arsenal. Its shallow swimming depth of one to three feet makes it ideal for trout streams.” Suggested retail price: $4.49


Spin Tail Shad

Conclusion: In 2002 Storm breakthrough line of soft plastics helped make the company a dominant player in the industry today. Judging from this Fall's new lineup of lures Storm is going to garner a lot of attention from anglers yet again. In this lineup all of the lures look good but we are most excited about the new WildEye additions, its very good to see species specific baits that really mimic baitfish well. You can be sure that this season we will be tying on Live Herring and Goby. With the swimbait craze in full effect Storm lures are an exceptional bargain for anglers looking to dip their feet in the technique.
