Team Daiwa Jerkbait Review

DaiwaProducts: TD Minnow, Double Clutch, TD Minnow Type SG, Daiwa Steez Flourocarbon

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.

Daiwa Advantage 2500A Reel Review

That is the first thing that came to mind when I opened the package and found the Team Daiwa Advantage 2500A. Being from Texas the use of a spinning rod was never a tool I used that often unless I was crappie fishing. Then I discovered Split Shotting and the now famous Drop Shot. Even though these techniques were very useful in catching bass in tournaments, I never gave much thought to the reels that I used. I bought what ever was cheapest and did the job I wanted it to do.

Eagle Claw R Bend Hook Review

Eagle ClawEagle 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.

Lunker City Lure Product Review

Lunker CityProducts: Water Widow, Spanky

Introduced in the fall of 2000, the Water Widow from Lunker City Fishing Specialties is sure to be hot bait this summer. The wacky worm craze has really taken hold with anglers in the last year. Lunker City Fishing Specialties has hopped on the band wagon, but with some interesting new twists to a simple lure. The Spanky is 5″ in length, with both ends of the bait being larger (thicker) than the center.

Glen Lau Old School Videos Review


glenlauProducts: Bigmouth, Bigmouth Forever

I had seen Bigmouth, the first of Glenn Lau’s movies about the Largemouth Bass many years ago when it first made its way through the Bassin’ world. I remember watching in awe and wondering where in the world was a place with so many bass, and where was the water so clear it seemed as though you could see 40 feet.

Spro Lure Product Review

sproWith summer here, its time to take out those topwaters for some exciting bass fishing action, but don’t forget to put Spro’s new Chug Minnow 35 in your box. This 3.5″ plug is like no other popping plug on the market. The head does not have the normal concave face of ordinary popping lures. Instead, the Chug Minnow feature a flared gill design that pushes away water at the top and the sides, but still allowing water to flow through the bottom.
