Line Test Used: 12 Lb & 6 Lb So, let’s talk about the new Daiwa Steez Fluorocarbon’s performance a bit. The 12 pound test worked very nicely on my bait caster while I was fishing the TD Minnow. It casted great, had very little stretch and was really resistant to abrasion. If I had to Read More…

“The Blakemore Rock’N Runner takes chatterbait fishing to a whole new level.”
Overall Rating: 9.3
Manufacturer: Blackmore Lures
Blakemore took the original Road Runner and spiced it up with a harder rockin’ action that drives fish wild. This Rock’n Runner spinnerbait delivers a slow presentation, flash and vibration for the ultimate attraction to appeal to even the most finicky of fish. Cast it near structures, retrieve it slowly and hang on. The design begins with a wobble blade/spinner blade combination. Holographic eyes give it a realistic appearance. A Sampo swivel delivers smooth performance. It’s all set on a Bleeding Bait Hook™ that triggers feeding fish for more than just a look. Tie line on at the snap.

Have you ever picked up a lure and you just knew that it was going to catch bass? Well that’s exactly how I felt when I saw these new jerkbaits from Daiwa. The timing was perfect for testing these new beauties, with waters warming into the mid-upper 50’s. Candlewood Lake has an abundance of Alewife and the new TD Minnow does a great job of imitating these 4” bait fish.
Eagle Claws new R-Bend hook is a really neat hook, once you learn how to rig your bait. It will hold your Texas rigged worms or tubes in place as good as any hook I’ve ever used. The heavy wire hook is a great choice for pitchin and flippin into heavy cover, you’ll never have to worry about straighten one out.
